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"

Once the cost outlay is achieved they generate power that's at no cost to them !If we could get off our arses and get to work on technology like this we all would be better off !

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.

I had some hopes that they would be getting wiser.

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.

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."

Obama said in 2008 while running for this first term.

“If someone wants to build a new coal-fired power plant they can, but it will bankrupt them because they will be charged a huge sum for all the greenhouse gas that's being emitted," he said.

Again you are not getting it. The war on coal is shutting down the cheaper electric generation and it is being replaced with more expensive fuels. There will be issues with supply and demand as these coal generated megawatts are retired. And therefore there will be blackouts and brownouts. When that happens, the suppliers have to purchase expensive power to replace it and guess what, they will pass that expense on to the consumers. Just wait a year or so, it will come to pass and you all will be hopping mad because your power bill went from $100 a month to $300 for the same kilowatt usage. But it will be cleaner. You will see.

The energy industry is a whole different ball of wax from the pollution issue. There is so much that goes into the pricing of fuel/energy and the Govt regulations are just a piece of it.

Kendall78: I watched a 60 minutes thing a few years ago where thy interviewed a guy that developed something in a box that was almost pollution free technology and supposedly has installed one at Google and some other places around silicon valley. What ever happened to that?

Electricity will become expensive. I feel sorry for those on fixed income. Soon it will also be me.
