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"

You answered you own question: The land owners are fighting it.

I say the same thing about Keystone: what is taking so long?

And just something for you righties to think about . Why don't the Canadians just set up a pipeline to the great lakes ? Its shorter and let the Canadians take the risk of pollution !

The news I hear is that the people of California are asking "what has taken so long "?

Seems the land owners in California want nothing to do with that high speed rail.

How are they going to run an electric train on solar and wind?

Maybe some landowners would rather have their water tables contaminated by oil spills (sometimes explosive) by railcar derailments, with the accompanying spillages that occur.

I is a good hat the landowners will benefit from the Keystone project Nascarnut. OWO, the utilities are spending MILLIONS to update the electrical grid at this point. It is necessary due to shutting down so many coal plants.

Seems the land owners in Nebraska want nothing to do with the pipeline...no amount of money can buy them they say...one man did say if they refine it in Canada he'd allow a pipeline through his land for the 307k they have offered him...so the question is, how long before they use eminent domain to get the pipeline through??...

The hot air you lefties expel blowing off about stuff you are ignorant of would power the entire state.!! The "power sellers" you are talking about are usually stockholders... You can always invest in a generator and make your own power or go off the grid big boy.. You do have choices so quit complaining about energy corporations that are investing MILLIONS so you Hippocrits can spew your ignorant crap on your computer !! !!!

Boy you righties just want to continue supporting the wealthy power sellers ,don't you ?

Well I suppose you should check with your republican masters on what to say next !

However, at 70 mph winds and negative wind chills, you can steel keep shoveling coal.

Sorry, the wind generators won't hold up at the speed and have to be locked down.

At very high wind speeds, typically between 45 and 80 mph, most wind turbines cease power generation and shut down. The wind speed at which shut down occurs is called the cut-out speed, or sometimes the furling speed. Having a cut-out speed is a safety feature which protects the wind turbine from damage.

70 mph is well above the the "cut-out speed"

Too bad we cant figure a way to generate power using idiocy !

Ohwiseone

Well with gusts over 70 MPH I'd say that the wind generators are doing just fine !
