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"

asknot...perhaps, but one can't deny that given the opportunity there are those willing to use any excuse or cause to further an agenda even if it means completely transforming our country. wait...didn't someone campaign on that promise?????

Thegreek, my electric bill has raised an avg.of $50 in the last year. This after purchasing a new so called energy efficient refrigerator and washer and dryer.

Just think what our electric bills will look like after 3 more years of obama and his cronies at the epa. All I can say is God help us all.

Well Bob, just in this area of Ohio since the obama regime took office there has been a new coal plant killed, new natural gas plant killed, 3 new proposed coal mines killed, one coal mine in operation but recently shut down, and a $300 million carbon capture plant killed by the EPA and obama. Not to mention the numerous coal plants shut down all over Ohio and elsewhere because they cannot meet the rigorous standards. And there is NO equipment yet developed for coal to meet the same air quality standards as natural gas.

The war on coal is real. Of course the serial liar obama and the demokrats would rather buy oil from terrorist countries and continue spreading our wealth over to people who hate us.

Bob - Who is not willing to spend the money?? The electric companies pass this costs on to YOU - the CONSUMERs!! They are not gonna adopt some rediculously expensive technology and drive costs up dramatically. That would be business wrecking...

Not only AEP. But First Energy, Duke, all of them have been trying to add equipment to meet this ever rising bar and it keeps getting higher until it is impossible.

Thank you Rocker. Well said. As usual.

Thegreek is right. We should be finding a way to turn coal into gasoline. I understand the Germans did this during the war so I see no reason why the U.S cannot do this now.

BobBarker - I worked in the coal industry for several years and I can tell you AEP has spent millions installing scrubbers and the like to make the air cleaner. And also they upgraded cleaning plants to wash the coal at the mine site several times. I think some people need to quit reading left wing enviro propaganda which is mostly lies and half truths. The war on coal is real. Standards are so tight that now that they don't even make equipment capable of meeting those standards.

Rather than condemn coal, a much more intelligent solution would be encouraging the development of new technology to liquify it so it could be burnt with less emissions. This would also help developing countries. I never once said I worked in a coal field. I have been in the energy production field for 35 years.

a cause in which to usher in Communism to replace our form of governance........United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China, she says, is the best model.

China may be the world’s top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggling with major pollution problems of their own, but the country is “doing it right” when it comes to fighting global warming says Figueres.

"and applies a current of 12,000 amps," ?

BlackLight Power Inc. (BLP), an innovation company that focuses on energy sources, has produced millions of watts of power with its Solid Fuel-Catalyst-Induced-Hydrino-Transition (SF-CIHT) patent pending technology.

The technology uses water-based fuel and applies a current of 12,000 amps, igniting flashes of power. In a press release, BlackLight Power states that the power source can output as much power as a central power generation plant, exceeding the power of the four former reactors of the ***ushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The technology converts the hydrogen of the H2O-based solid fuel into a lower-energy state hydrogen called “Hydrino”. BlackLight Power noted that the end result of power is in the form of plasma, which can be converted directly to electricity using magnetohydrodynamic converters.

Boy for a person that knows so little about power generation nuts and bolts you sure seem to be an expert. Come to think of it, you seem to be a self proclaimed expert at everything !!!

If you prefer those without coal or nuclear I hope you also like the dark and no power for you PC cause renewables have been proven to not be enough unless you are a sheeple.

I'm selfish, I prefer clean renewables, cleaner air, and my carbon footprint to not affect, my grandchildren's, grandchildren.

I am not gonna argue with you anymore. I am tired of seeing your tail between your legs.

Yeah but you wanna condemn coal. I wanna make it a clean never ending power supply !!

thegreek

They are working on it. Most Chinese people do not even have power. Kind of selfish that you don't think they should while using your I phone or smart phone or your computer setting in your house arguing on the internet over it while they are FREEZING... No wonder other countries HATE the arrogant US people !!

Serious air pollution plagues most major Chinese cities, where environmental protection has been long sacrificed for the sake of economic development. Coal burning and car emissions are major sources of pollution. In recent years, China has beefed up regulations and pledged financial resources to fight pollution.

What is your point ??? No pollution controls??
