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"

weather is pretty interesting when you get down to it. although, i had to chuckle the other day when the weather channel kept running that clip of the poor (cute btw) girl standing in the water describing the floodwaters. i thought for goodness sake, there has got to be another more interesting view...it's like they just stopped at the first good sized mud puddle they saw and said "done". i am envious of your travels west. it i something i mean to do but never quite make the time to do.

morning moderation...that is an attention-grabbing headline for sure. looked into it and it appears that it snows every year in Hawaii. snow traditionally is limited to the highest peaks above 9000 feet. which got me thinking that it snows just about everywhere at some point...depending on altititude and moisture saturation.

moderation...thanks for the reply. accountability can be a wonderful thing. one of the things in life that is so easy but yet so darn difficult. i was hoping you might weigh in on what i perceive may be the positive in the long run of the story and one in which i hope becomes more commonplace.

Thanks to Beright for which this was lifted: "Duke said Friday in statements and court filings that it has already negotiated a plea agreement under which it will admit guilt and pay $102 million in fines, restitution and community service. The company said the costs of the settlement will be borne by its shareholders, not passed on to its electricity customers.".... while the "accident" was unfortunate, at least they admitted guilt, coordinated a clean-up effort, and will pay negotiated fines but best of all they are doing what needs to be done when corporations act irresponsibly....that is making the owners pay for the infractions. this action, if sustained by others, will improve the overall health of the business and consumer relationship.

Brine: Brine is what the old PPG plant in Natrium (now Axial) makes to use in the Manufacture of Chlorine. By definition, Brine is a solution of salt (usually sodium chloride) in water. The stuff the oil and gas folks are injecting is not “Brine”. The stuff they are injecting may include Brine, but is basically it is a waste chemical soup that they are injecting and not all of the ingredients are disclosed. Once you let someone start using the word Brine to define that chemical soup instead of what it really is, you lose the argument.

Federal prosecutors filed multiple criminal charges against Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) on Friday over years of illegal pollution leaking from coal ash dumps at five North Carolina power plants.

The three U.S. Attorney's Offices covering the state charged Duke with nine misdemeanor counts involving violations of the Clean Water Act. The prosecutors say the nation's largest electricity company engaged in unlawful dumping at coal-fired power plants in Eden, Moncure, Asheville, Goldsboro and Mt. Holly.

Duke said Friday in statements and court filings that it has already negotiated a plea agreement under which it will admit guilt and pay $102 million in fines, restitution and community service. The company said the costs of the settlement will be borne by its shareholders, not passed on to its electricity customers.

I see NasCarNut slid off the road on that last corner I brought him through. I certainly hope it wasn't too intellectually challenging for anyone else to follow.

Are you certain there's not already a brine injection well seeping into your water supply, NasCar? You're beginning to demonstrate the possible ill-effects related to that type of contaimination.

Ameren Corp. (NYSE: AEE) has proposed one of the first alternatives to the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Clean Power Plan (CPP), publishing a white paper asserting that constructive and common-sense alterations to the CPP are needed to avoid the imposition of staggering costs on utility customers and significant risks to electric grid reliability.

The company says its proposal would achieve the same final CO2 emission reduction goals as the EPA's own plan, while saving $4 billion in costs and avoiding grid reliability problems related to the premature closure of key coal-fired power plants.

Can you use the words "common sense" and "EPA" in the same sentence?
