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"

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?

OWO- I knew Oblabla was a knucklehead and you just proved it. So he is against building something that already exists? His teleprompter must have f a r t e d .

NOW, the operators of the brine injection wells at Torch, Ohio are seeking permission to establish a 4th well. If I were an attorney representing DuPont in ongoing litigation concerning the ill-effects of C8 on humans, I'd be ALL IN FAVOR of as many brine wells established downriver as possible. Future disease development will be hard to blame upon DuPont's negligence if other poisons are being pumped into the aquifers by brine disposal units.

Keystone XL does not exist.

You keep bringing up the same old BS argument in regards to the pipeline. If what they are debating in congress is already built than what are they debating. And if what they are debating already exists, than what is Oblabla against building? Are you and Oblabla both knuckleheads or just you?. But just in case you’re not up to your Googling, what the is being proposed is the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline (Phase IV), which would essentially duplicate the Phase I pipeline between Hardisty, Alberta, and Steele City, Nebraska,[9] with a shorter route and a larger-diameter pipe. It would run through Baker, Montana, where American-produced light crude oil from the Williston Basin (Bakken formation) of Montana and North Dakota would be added[7] to the Keystone's current throughput of synthetic crude oil (syncrude) and diluted bitumen (dilbit) from the oil sands of Canada.

The most popular electric car, a Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable diesel Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit only 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping.

The results are similar for the top-line Tesla car, emitting about 44 tons, about 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro.

In both cases the electric car is better, but only by a tiny bit. Avoiding 3 tons of CO2 would cost less than $27 on Europe's emissions trading market. The annual benefit is about the cost of a cup of coffee.

Yet U.S. taxpayers spend up to $7,500 in tax breaks for less than $27 of climate benefits. That's a bad deal.
