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 in case you missed it, your estimates about having 500 years of coal to use was about 320 years off.

"We are not the only country with coal reserves.."

No duh but we only have 27%, everyone else has lower amounts and they rely on coal for themselves. They will run out before us (possibly) and then want to buy more than they already do from us.

So unless new reserves are found or there is an offset of coal use due to other energy sources, our coal reserves have less than 2 centuries left.

And let's be realistic here for a moment, do you think the coal price is going to hold steady during those years? If you were the coal industry and knew that your easy to mine coal is running down...wouldn't you raise prices?

Try doing some research in the future Greek, it will help you to avoid sticking that foot of yours in your mouth.

"What kind of statement is that?"

A truthful one.

"You DO realize that there is absolutely NO SUPPLY SHORTAGE here in the US of coal supply."

In the here and now, yes I realize we are not in need. But I'm not talking about the here and now but the future.

"The US has enough coal to supply ourselves electricity for like 500 years."

Except that we sell coal and do not use it for our exclusive use. According to the EIA (U.S. Energy Information Administration), "U.S. estimated recoverable coal reserves would be exhausted in about 180 years if no new reserves are added."

"Won't have to worried about you offending me if that's the case."

Poor Tired..name calling when the facts offend him. Poor baby.

And please show Greek that there is a direct connection between our President ans the rise or fall in energy prices.

Reemember...correlation does not mean causation.

"Shhh Tired, I was talking to Greek. ABOUT ME, obsess much?"

Lol...I took the majority of that phrase right from your own sayings you short minded twit..haha.

Greek, let's take away the EPA and such from the equation shall we?

The costs of fossil fuels would still go up due to the supply dwindling and demand rising.

It would still cost a lot politically as long as we are held hostage by our own need for fossil fuels from other nations. Not to mention our allies that are also troubled by getting oil and such from places like Russia.

Do you think the whole Ukraine issue would be so big if Europe didn't rely on Russia for energy?

But let's look at clean energy since certain people have nothing relevant to add to the topic.

There is nothing wrong with the development of cleaner energy sources and more variety in those sources. Geothermal power is used in Iceland, hydroelectric power is used by many nations and wind generates power in many places as well.

We know the cost of fossil fuels are high, both politically and economically as time goes on, so why not work to create energy from the strengths of a region.

There should be a day where everyone in the US Southwest uses some solar panels on their homes. Wind generated power should be increased in the Appalachia region.

Shhh Tired, I was talking to Greek.

Greek, do you ever get tired of being Tired's lickspittle?

Part of our issues with people like Tired is that he doesn't provide proof and doesn't accept any proof from others.

Kendall78

Your certainty means absolutely nothing without facts.

Face it Tired, you cannot prove you know more than I do, no more than I can prove that I know more than you.

Based on what you have offered, I understand it as well as you do.

Our form of capitalist society wouldn't let it really be free anyway.

As time goes on, if we are going to remain capitalistic, we are going to have to find jobs that pay. It doesn't seem quite feasible that green tech is going to have a lot of employee growth like traditional fossil fuel oriented industry does.

No , whats your point ?

Wake up greek , all I was saying is as long as the sun shines its free to somebody !

Once the cost outlay is achieved they generate power that's at no cost to them !If we could get off our arses and get to work on technology like this we all would be better off !

It actually is cheaper ! Its hard to beat free !

Company and federal officials have marked the start of construction on a $1 billion solar power generating station in the desert 50 miles south of Las Vegas.

Executives with Arizona-based First Solar Inc. and Florida-based NextEra Energy Resources joined federal Bureau of Land Management chief Neil Kornze at a ceremony Wednesday at the site of the 250-megawatt project, dubbed Silver State South. It is expected to produce enough electricity to power about 80,000 California homes when it is completed in 2016.

Wait till the sun shines Nellie When the clouds go driftin' by We will be so happy, Nellie Don't let me hear you sighin' I can't stand to see you cryin'
