CLEAN... ENERGY

Offshore wind farms from New Jersey to Virginia took a big step closer to reality with the completion of a review that showed the renewable energy source would not cause major environmental damage, officials said today. Wind projects off the coasts of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and New Jersey are being studied. The Mid-Atlantic lease proposal follows the Cape Wind project in Massachusetts that was given the go-ahead in 2010 after 9 years of federal review."No developer should have to wait nine or 10 years," for approval, Salazar said. The response from the developers was "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

So. Do you all think these scrubbers maintain themselves without any maintenance work?? You think they clean themselves?? If you say the scrubbers are accountable for removing this dust that caused these deaths then you would have to agree that the workers that clean and maintain them should be getting that same disease !!! I say they ARENT.. There is NOTHING too look up ... IT AINT THERE... THAT IS MY POINT !!!

must be careful when we use numbers that are based on best educated guess verses actual deaths with definitive cause.

asknot...good evening. if your 13,000 person fatality is based on real body count then disregard this post. i read the report from the Clean Air Task Force where they stated that they estimate that 13,000 people die prematurely due mostly to the fine particulate matter that is realeased into the air. this estimate is down from previous estimates of around 24,000...thanks in part to installation os scrubbers as well as utilizing clean burning coal techonologies. the reduction in the number of coal-fired power plants also contributed to the lower estimation. while i think we all can agree that pure clean air is preferable, we must also understand that we have cotaminants that are released naturally into the air we breathe. the study also lumped many cardio-pulminary diseases into the study as well. it appears that the numbers have been extrapolated from large-scale epidemiological studies. while we must all do what we can to reduce pollutants to the air we breathe (even pot smoke) we mu

BUT you have no probelm believeing miners are more succectible to "black lung" diseases but the power plant workers should not get whatever this lung illness is that kills (an alleged) 13,000 people a year??? Why is it dumb to ask someone to explain?? Or are you saying you are dumb for not understanding the question?? You only pick up on whatever part of the discussion suits your arguement !!!And then you ignore the rest or make fun of it.

Actually,greek,.... I think enough sunlight/potential solar power radiates the earth on a daily basis to energize all of our current needs.I would like to use a quote and say,"in-nut yourself" before you respond. What a beautiful day it is outside, here in the hills of southeastern ohio.

AND the BAD part is everyone is as ignorant about power generation as you guys are. Politicians, Public Utilities Commissions and even people in the power generation thing that all you have to do it flip a switch and the power is MAGICALLY there. Not realizing that people work 24/7 to provide and distribute it. And like I said wind and solar aint enough to replace coal. Marl my words. You say I am a 35 year idiot. We will see.

The POWER PLANT SMOKESTACKS (not emissions towers, who is the uneducated fool here?) are typically 800 feet high. The boilers have steel casings that have a nasty habit of leaking so the employees get to huff into their lungs all that crap that goes up the smokestack. If a casing leak is bad enough I have seen the boiler room a blue haze of smoke, INSIDE the buildings. So YOU TWO are the uneducated idiots (typical liberals) that need to educate yourselves !!!BOOOYYEEAAHHH!!!!

I cannot explain it any better than that... I cannot continue to draw pictures for you bone headed liberals that think you already have the answer for Obamacare and all the stuff going on now!!!

I am telling you - I know of NO ONE that died of black lung in the power plant industry. NOT MINING. Some that I know died of heart/lung disease but not enough to justify the 13,000 people that are supposed to have died from pollution.!! Wouldn't YOU think that if pollution was killing 13,000 people that most of the power plant workers would have died from the same affliction !??? MOre than ONE out of 500 workers???Since they are exposed to it at least 90 percent more than the average Joe on the street ????Since they handle it every day of their lives except for days off ??????? Do you comprehend????

They wasted their money on these biased reports just like they did the global warming. You can call me ignorant all you want, it still will not change my mind and what I have experienced in the last 35 years. Try as you want. I am not buying it !! I never supplied you any info except what I experienced and what I saw. If you don't want to believe it, that is your prerogative but you don't have to say I am IGNORANT !!!

What links? I never supplied links !!! That is what I have been talking about and I have been trying to explain to you. Power plant emissions !!! Not coal mining...

And I am not gonna list all of the names of my coworkers on here that have died in the last 30 years.

ONCE AGAIN. POWER PLANT. Not coal mine! Not coal Mine! Not coal Mine! Do you all even know the difference???I NEVER SAID NO ONE IN COAL MINING INDUSTRY EVER DIED OF BLACK LUNG. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT COAL MINES.GOT THAT??? YOU ARE THE ONES WITH CLOSED MINDS AND YOUR TYPES ARE DECIDING THE FUTURE OF THE ELECTRIC INDUSTRY TODAY. TOTALLY Unknowledgable about electric power generation. For you EXPERTS info, solar, wind and even hydro will not even keep up with the increase in yearly new generation demand needed. I do NOT believe that the 13,000 deaths from coal can even be proven. That is what I am telling you. You are buying into something that cannot be proven. But if you can, in your immense knowledge. PROVE IT... No one else has except by throwing out a bogus report that you sheeple believe!!

So to date you have called me a racist because I made the comment that not everyone that grew up in the 60's witnesses slavery and racism because they lived out in remote areas. I am a homophobe because I quoted bible passages. And not I am an idiot that has not been paying any attention at my workplace for 35 years and don't care or go to funerals of retirees and have no clue what they died of !!! Sound about right asknot. Try this on - KISS MY A$S. You are one offensive SO B.
