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"

Beright...earlier, before i was distracted, i looked into the cost of a solar farm. from what i have gathered it appears that it costs about $500,000 per acre to construct. it takes about 5 acres of suitable land to produce 1 megawatt/hour under ideal conditions. since i have to reload on my wheaties i will leave any further calculations for others to share, which may give further insight into what the potential scope could be for practical use.

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child.

That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

 23 (Reuters) - Residents of a Montana town whose water supply was tainted by an oil pipeline rupture last week got the all-clear on Friday to turn taps back on, though some reported brown or black material spurting from faucets even after their pipes were flushed.

Yep, those shut off valves are 100% effective eh...

Maybe you're right to be against the pipeline, ohwiseone, since you THINK you're right about everything. The Canadian tar sands oils ARE presently being moved by railcar. OH, THAT'S SO MUCH SAFER THAN A PIPELINE WITH INTERMEDIATE, COMPUTER-CONTROLLED SHUT OFF VALVES AND PUMPS! Let's just continue to move it the old-fashioned way so we can have more of this.

Theres still the question . Why make a pipeline that goes across our country when it would be a shorter route to Lake Superior and use tankers just like they do with Alaskan oil ?

All Democratic congressmen/women unwilling to override an Obama veto concerning Keystone should take note of one thing FOR SURE.

The ISIS forces are aware of Japanese dependence upon oil from the Middle East. As they gain more territory and power, they will attempt to cleave off America's coalition partners by denying them the oil they need.

America can preserve her allied agreements by taking up the slack and providing the oil to those that ISIS would hope to separate from us. The more wells, the more pipelines and the more energy production, under our direct control, weakens our enemies (including Vladimir Putin).

ANY U.S. politicians voting against the Keystone should be considered - (how did Obama put it?), oh yeah, "unpatriotic".

Now all they have to do is override the veto !

OWO... i agree with you on your point. It would seem like the natural producers would team with resellers and invest in your idea. However conversion of vehicles is cost prohibitive. Now if the auto manufacturers could get on board then I think it would have a shot.

Congress sends keystone pipeline bill to the whitehouse

Posted 22 days ago.

Ohwiseone

Small steps ! With the availability of massive amounts of natural gas in our area you would think that there would be natural gas cars and fueling pumps everywhere , but you know who sees that as a threat !

Posted 22 days ago.

BeRight

Sure. We should start that process by having all the Fed Gov't buildings do it first to make sure it is practical. Have all FED vehicles converted to Natural Gas or electric.

The Gov't should lead the way and not force the way.

beright...what would be your opinion of alternate power charging stations for electric personal mobility vehicles ILO our current hybrid gasoline(todays gasoline is not pure gasoline) filling stations?? in addition would you support the phasing out of carbon-based home heating sources(ie: fuel oil, propane and natural gas)?
