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"

Mod, were you worried about that carbon footprint when you waited in line for gas when Carter was running the show?

Your worried about oil coming from Canada while the Saudi's intend to flood the market with oil by filling up every tanker they can and shipping it by ocean.

I take it bewrite that you haven't noticed the shape our roads and bridges are in ! Just to get them up to safe will take years , so these construction jobs will last a lot longer than your pipeline jobs !

When Obama and you lefties discuss shovel ready jobs and that those jobs will create thousands of construction jobs. Construction jobs, by the very nature of what they are, are temporary jobs. What is the difference in thousands of well paid construction jobs for the pipeline vs other construction jobs? What about the pipe to be used on the pipeline? The heavy equipment that will be needed? The pumps, the fittings, the valves that would need to be built?

And just like always "people " like konect just spew whatever they are told to ! Do you KNOW FOR A FACT that these shovel ready jobs weren't ? NO ! And we will never know because of your republidud obstruction !

Fortunately, for the shareholders, those rail tanker transports operate within appropriate legal guidelines.A ruptured pipeline has the potential, in a spill/leak situation, to deposit considerably more toxicity to any given point than a rail incident.The refining process for tar sands has an approximately 17% higher carbon footprint because of its composition, anyway. All for 35 permanent jobs.

And Obummer and his congressional majority p-issed away two years on health care reform, that is well on the way to failing under it's on weight of lies, and "Shovel-Ready" jobs that weren't so shovel ready.

How much longer will you back Obummer? Fred Oneill seems to have given up on that nasty habit. But he has an educational background.

And the reason for that is your republicans have let our roads and rails degenerate to dangerous levels ! Could have fixed some of that but they were to busy obstructing !

BeRight - The Leftist tree-huggers don't want to admit that the oil, that would be sent through the pipeline, is currently making it's way across America in railcar shipments anyway. Those cars derail, then spill and catch fire. They are also dragged to the refineries by diesel-burning locomotives. So, where's the protection of the environment with the current system, ohwiseone?
