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"

350**** is a group that seeks to build a global grassroots movement to "solve the climate crisis," according to its webpage, and the group made clear that the warning label fight is solely an initiative by the Bay Area branch. The label's design is straightforward. It has white on black writing, topped off with "Warning" in bold on an orange background. The text reads, "The state of California has determined that global warming caused by greenhouse gases poses a serious threat to the economic well-being, public health, natural resources and the environment of California."

Coal is down to 40% in terms of providing electricity for our needs, natural gas is up to 30%, and renewables are accounting for most of the rest, including nuclear, but investors are not wanting to put their dollars into nuclear, so ready or not, coal generation is waning, but at least we will sell the coal( and our cracked natural gas) to China....

The Tennessee Valley Authority, TVA, is developing a formal program for controlling coal dust at its plants and should reach all milestones in the effort later this year, a TVA spokesman told the Knoxville News-Sentinel. According to the News-Sentinel, the TVA Inspector General conducted site visits in August and September of 2012 and discovered some areas in which coal dust had accumulated to levels that exceeded the 1/32 inch industry standard. TVA had started an earlier effort to address coal dust issues the Inspector General found in 2011, but funding for that was later eliminated. According to the report, TVA has funded $17.4 million in improvements for coal-handling equipment in fiscal year 2013

I have friends that have been to china recently, and the pollution in the big cities is pretty bad. Had to laugh when ASK said they Chinese Govt didn't have control over there. The fact that they have poor safety and smog, doesn't mean the Chicom government doesn't rule with an iron fist.

The recent pollution there was caused by a low pressure system hovering over the area and farmers burning their fields off. NOT from burning coal. Get your facts straight before you comment on this stuff and show your ignorance !!!

We now are exporting Global Warming:

Consol Energy, the largest coal producer in the eastern United States, said on Monday that it was selling five highly automated mines — about half of its production capacity — to focus instead on natural gas and on mines that produce coal for EXPORT.

Please note my post from 12 days ago and compare it to this recent headline. Both are accurate:

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) fined Duke Energy Renewables, a subsidiary of North Carolina-based Duke Energy, for killing 14 golden eagles and 149 other federally protected birds including hawks, blackbirds, larks, wrens, and sparrows.

Duke Energy Renewables will pay $1 million and is the first wind company to be charged under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, according to a Heartland report.

Duke Energy Renewable pled guilty to killing 163 birds between 2009 and 2013 at two Duke Renewables wind farms in Converse County, Wyo. Together, the wind farms have 176 turbines.

BTW: Although they are delisted, bald eagles are still protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and the Lacey Act.

This is why they needed a permit to kill them.
