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"

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.

Ive already made my point. No one is gonna invest 1B dollars to harness energy from the sun to give it away to 80000 homes. Those homes are gonna have to pay for it. Hence it is not FREE POWER !!! It is free from the sun but will most definitely be paid for. That is my point !!

Crimeny ohnot2wiseone. If someone were to invest money like that with NO RETURN we could all have free power. Someone is willing to lose 1 billion - I SERIOUSLY DOUBT THAT it will be 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.

If memory serves me correctly, Al Gore avoided being around Bill Clinton much his last 2 years. I think Bush visited one of the southern states during his final year and the Governor wouldn't meet him at the airport.

So yeah, most of the Dems that are looking for reelection, especially in Purple states, will stay far away from Obama. Heck...Hilary is not only throwing him under the bus...she's jumping in and running him over with it.

I reason it the same way the Republicans turned on Bush during his two last years....they want to get reelected.

Most Presidents are political poison during their last two years. the Dems are doing exactly what I expect them to do.

Don't get flustered at him because you believed the cherry picked lines that the Far Right fed you. Always check your sources.

Was his lips moving ?? Then as we have discovered all too recently, he has lied !!

In the same interview he said, "This notion of no coal, I think, is an illusion, because the fact of the matter is that right now, we are getting a lot of our energy from coal, and China is building a coal-fired plant once a week. So what we have to do then is we have to figure out how can we use coal without emitting greenhouse gases and carbon. And how can we sequester that carbon and capture it? If we can't, then we're going to still be working on alternatives."
