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"

Greek, do you ever get tired of being Tired's lickspittle?

Part of our issues with people like Tired is that he doesn't provide proof and doesn't accept any proof from others.

It no use tiredofit. You could show proof the sun is up but they will pull the blinds and say "no it isn't see there it is dark".. Your facts are wrong. (albeit is NOON).

Your certainty means absolutely nothing without facts.

Face it Tired, you cannot prove you know more than I do, no more than I can prove that I know more than you.

Based on what you have offered, I understand it as well as you do.

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 !!

I will buy that it is free to the group that invested the 1 B but not to the consumers !! They will pay a premium.. Whats your 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....

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.

Nope, they are as predictable and stupid at the Congressional Republicans.

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 have never noticed that but it actually makes some sense..

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.
