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"

When Obama and you lefties discuss shovel ready jobs and that those jobs will create thousands of construction jobs. Construction jobs, by the very nature of what they are, are temporary jobs. What is the difference in thousands of well paid construction jobs for the pipeline vs other construction jobs? What about the pipe to be used on the pipeline? The heavy equipment that will be needed? The pumps, the fittings, the valves that would need to be built?

Fortunately, for the shareholders, those rail tanker transports operate within appropriate legal guidelines.A ruptured pipeline has the potential, in a spill/leak situation, to deposit considerably more toxicity to any given point than a rail incident.The refining process for tar sands has an approximately 17% higher carbon footprint because of its composition, anyway. All for 35 permanent jobs.

And Obummer and his congressional majority p-issed away two years on health care reform, that is well on the way to failing under it's on weight of lies, and "Shovel-Ready" jobs that weren't so shovel ready.

How much longer will you back Obummer? Fred Oneill seems to have given up on that nasty habit. But he has an educational background.

And the reason for that is your republicans have let our roads and rails degenerate to dangerous levels ! Could have fixed some of that but they were to busy obstructing !

BeRight - The Leftist tree-huggers don't want to admit that the oil, that would be sent through the pipeline, is currently making it's way across America in railcar shipments anyway. Those cars derail, then spill and catch fire. They are also dragged to the refineries by diesel-burning locomotives. So, where's the protection of the environment with the current system, ohwiseone?

I get a kick out of the "dirty oil sands Oil" the dirtiest oil on the earth.

They always seem to forget the "refining" part and imply that you take that dirty tar sands oil as is and it will be available to fill your SUV at Speedway.

But, ohwiseone, I thought you people were all about "clean energy"! Now, with Mary Landrieu's political *** 0n the line, your willing to look the other way concerning that 'awful' Canadian tar sands oil. LOL

No bullying , no embellishing just the facts !If that rubs against your indoctrination then maybe you should seek enlightenment !

Who stands to profit if Mr. Solar Panels keeps America away from maximizing oil domestic oil production and refining? The Chinese, Vladimir Putin and ISIS spring to mind.

What billionaire contributor to Democratic causes stands to be hurt if Keystone comes on line?

Her support is a necessity ! The question remains ~~~ just why is it so very important to have these temporary jobs ? Who stands to profit ?

I'm sure Mary Landrieu would be able to explain their importance...now that she's become a 'supporter'.

OLD Democratic opinion on the Keystone Pipeline (That would create a MULTITUDE of jobs for America and make the nation more energy independent) = Let's stonewall and resist the approval of it's construction.

NEW Democratic opinion on the Keystone Pipeline - (When the Democratic refusal to consider it may well cost ONE Democratic Senator, Mary Landrieu (La), her job during December 6th's runoff election) = Democratic response becomes one of, "OK. Let's now consider that pipeline"

Here's where we can banter around the term blatant Hypocrites.

How about an explaination about that Mr Expert !(sarcasm)
