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"

All Democratic congressmen/women unwilling to override an Obama veto concerning Keystone should take note of one thing FOR SURE.

The ISIS forces are aware of Japanese dependence upon oil from the Middle East. As they gain more territory and power, they will attempt to cleave off America's coalition partners by denying them the oil they need.

America can preserve her allied agreements by taking up the slack and providing the oil to those that ISIS would hope to separate from us. The more wells, the more pipelines and the more energy production, under our direct control, weakens our enemies (including Vladimir Putin).

ANY U.S. politicians voting against the Keystone should be considered - (how did Obama put it?), oh yeah, "unpatriotic".

OWO... i agree with you on your point. It would seem like the natural producers would team with resellers and invest in your idea. However conversion of vehicles is cost prohibitive. Now if the auto manufacturers could get on board then I think it would have a shot.

Congress sends keystone pipeline bill to the whitehouse

Small steps ! With the availability of massive amounts of natural gas in our area you would think that there would be natural gas cars and fueling pumps everywhere , but you know who sees that as a threat !

Sure. We should start that process by having all the Fed Gov't buildings do it first to make sure it is practical. Have all FED vehicles converted to Natural Gas or electric.

The Gov't should lead the way and not force the way.

beright...what would be your opinion of alternate power charging stations for electric personal mobility vehicles ILO our current hybrid gasoline(todays gasoline is not pure gasoline) filling stations?? in addition would you support the phasing out of carbon-based home heating sources(ie: fuel oil, propane and natural gas)?

Gulf Power, a subsidiary of Southern Co. , announced plans to retire coal-fired generating Units 1 & 2 at the Plant Smith power plant by March 31, 2016.

The company said it was in their customers’ best interest to retire the units, located near Panama City, Florida, after stricter regulations were imposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The facility will continue to operate and produce electricity with its state-of-the-art combined-cycle natural gas-fired unit, which went into service in 2002.

Additionally, Gulf Power will utilize Plant Crist, a coal-fired facility, which added a $650 million scrubber in 2009.

They might be a little cynical since all these out dated power plants that they sold operating waivers too decided to not follow through on their promises and upgrade while running!

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced late Tuesday that it was ending work on the FutureGen 2.0 clean coal project in Illinois. DOE said the project would not meet a September 2015 deadline to use $1 billion in stimulus funds and suspended the rest of the funding. FutureGen 2.0 would have retrofitted a coal-fired generating unit at Ameren’s Meredosia power plant in Illinois with an oxy-combustion system, air quality control systems, a boiler, steel and other control systems. The project was designed to capture up to 90 percent, or 1 million tons, of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the unit and inject them deep underground.

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity said the project’s closure shows the Obama Administration’s “hypocrisy towards clean coal technology.” Then-U.S. Senator Barack Obama in 2006 advocated for the project to be sited in his home state of Illinois and called it “the future of coal in the United States.”

I will draw at least TWO pensions so I have nothing against them, just saying that the trend has moved away from them for younger workers. Its a 401k world for them like it or not

That's was the inevitable end for pensions ! Whenever you have a huge pile of money there will always be someone , somewhere working 24/7 on ways to get it in their own pockets !30 years ago it would have been considered crazy to invest pension money in the stock market ! Well , we all know how that worked out !
