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"

I love deer meat. Any wild meat but harvesting them is a different story. With all the farmers leasing their land to hunters, our hunting has decreased a lot. Don't get me wrong, if I were a farmer I would lease too.

ask. How may I ask do you harvest enough game to feed a family? Is'nt growing and canning veggies more expensive than buying at say Aldi's?? By the time you pay for the canning ?? Just curious. I have 2 squirrels and 2 rabbits in the freezer now. That's it !

Tired- our oil is of the global market oil. The Chinese alone have ventured about 35% of the capital for the shale plays that are taking place around this company

"I don't see how advocating responsibility is a bad thing!"

It's not.

You may do whatever you like and I will comment as well as I will like. Freedom of speech is such a wonderful thing.

The World Meteorological Organization said that 2013 was in the top ten for warmest since they took those records in 1850.

From their page, "Thirteen of the 14 warmest years on record have all occurred in the 21st century."

According to the Weather Channel, the deniers love those that tell weather, 2013 was one of the top hottest since modern temperature records began in 1850.

"why has there been no warming in the last dozen years and yet co2 continues to climb?"

Why 12? Why don't you go by the averages of the past century? Are you cherry picking with the information again?

I think you are upset because you support the notion that too much CO2 is bad for the world.

Let's see, you say it is not a pollutant and you also say that our bodies put off the chemical. Do you know why our bodies put off the chemical? Because it is a waste product and therefor bad.

But of course the real reason why CO2 is bad is that the natural cycle it goes through is very very slow compared to other compounds that effect the atmosphere.

Thank you, so you agree that too much of a chemical compound beyond what is needed is dangerous.

Therefor, you agree that too much CO2 would not be good.

"CO2 is not a pollutant"

And if we would put you in a plastic bubble made up of 90% CO2, what would happen?

tiredofit...sorry for the delay in responding and thanks for the compliment. i think there no matter the problem, whether it is real or created, there will be those that will use it for personal financial or politcal gains. climate change is one of those money and politcal hay-makers. people with enough savvy or politically driven information will always seek some type of reward. that is not to say that there are individuals that have an earnest interest in any crisis but the vast majority are opportunists plain and simple. identifying a problem is problematic in and of itself. the solution sometimes appears to have the same dilema. one thing though is certain. we have but one earth and no real long-term viable habitation alternative, therefore it would be wise to accept that should we not desire the same problems within our own bodies, how so should we want them for our planet?

@thegreek- by waht standards did the people in the 1850's use to say a weather pattern was extreme or not? Is it the same as we use it today?

Could you cite where this observation was made? I partly ask because it is a miracle that our nation survived. With only 31 states in the early 1850's they had such a higher rate of extreme weather now didn't they?

Did I say it was a fact? No - You did. I said it was an observation !!
