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"

No#1 It aint "Obamas EPA" ! Golly you've swallowed that horsesh^t line and sinker ! If you choose to do a little unbiased research you'll find that the EPA has been around for years and that these out of date power stations were supposed to be shut down decades ago ! Try googling "pollution credits" !

The coal plants that are shutting down tend to be older, smaller and used less often than most of their peers — in many cases, they were plants that power companies use to meet peak demands, such as on the hottest days of summer. For now, coal is still the nation’s leading source of utility power, providing 39 percent of the mix last year compared with 27 percent from natural gas.

Coal power isn’t going away entirely — it’s still the No. 1 fuel for U.S. electricity and will remain a major source for decades to come. But its shrinking role is hard to miss.

The end of this month all the power plants that Obamas EPA have assisted in closing are done for good. Hope it works out well for you Obama supporters.

Beright....when the United States stops consuming carbon-based commodities at the rate in which we do, whom will then comsume the excess and how will we contend with the shift? OWO is correct about the purchasing of "carbon credits". to me it seemed to be a reverse tax. it was a tax concealed as a product....and that product was the purchased right to polute beyond current limits or goals. personally, i think the current energy companies should be given first right of refusal when it comes to implementing new energy sources. the so-called tax credits could very well form the seeds for the investment into sustainable and safe energy. we will still have the need for oil-based petroleum products. reducing the need is not only smart but acts in insuring that we maintain a supply of the valuable resource for future use.
