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"

And greek just so you know the EPA has been around since 1970 and was called into being by a republican , Richard Nixon !So its been in service for 44 years and all of a sudden it becomes the republican whipping boy !Just more proof of the outrage/scandal /fear mongering right wing propaganda !

And even though you apparently cant understand this greek, but these polluting obsolete power plants were supposed to be phased out years ago !Then our government found they could make money selling pollution credits ! These power plants were supposed to upgrade to natural gas or clean coal and chose instead to take the money and run !SO YES IT WAS THEIR OWN FAULT !

Peabody Energy recently ranked the top 5 cleanest burning coal-fired power plants in the U.S. under three categories: SO2 emissions, NOx emissions and best heat rate: John W. Turk Jr. Power Plant, Longview Power Plant, Sandy Creek Supercritical Coal-Fired Power Plant, Belews Creek Steam Station, and the James E. Rogers Energy Complex.

I assume you are talking about the Stimulus. There has been an amazing lack of transparency in the so called "successes".

Toledo solar-panel manufacturer Xunlight Corp. is bankrupt and plans to liquidate its remaining assets. The flexible solar-panel manufacturer that uses technology developed at the University of Toledo closed the doors of its Nebraska Avenue headquarters this summer. This month, the company filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation petition.

In 2010, the company received $34.5 million in tax credits as part of the stimulus bill. U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo) helped secure nearly $3 million in federal earmarks for the company. Another one bites the dust. More taxpayer money down the solar drain.
