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"

I think you are upset because you support the notion that too much CO2 is bad for the world.

Let's see, you say it is not a pollutant and you also say that our bodies put off the chemical. Do you know why our bodies put off the chemical? Because it is a waste product and therefor bad.

But of course the real reason why CO2 is bad is that the natural cycle it goes through is very very slow compared to other compounds that effect the atmosphere.

Thank you, so you agree that too much of a chemical compound beyond what is needed is dangerous.

Therefor, you agree that too much CO2 would not be good.

"CO2 is not a pollutant"

And if we would put you in a plastic bubble made up of 90% CO2, what would happen?

tiredofit...sorry for the delay in responding and thanks for the compliment. i think there no matter the problem, whether it is real or created, there will be those that will use it for personal financial or politcal gains. climate change is one of those money and politcal hay-makers. people with enough savvy or politically driven information will always seek some type of reward. that is not to say that there are individuals that have an earnest interest in any crisis but the vast majority are opportunists plain and simple. identifying a problem is problematic in and of itself. the solution sometimes appears to have the same dilema. one thing though is certain. we have but one earth and no real long-term viable habitation alternative, therefore it would be wise to accept that should we not desire the same problems within our own bodies, how so should we want them for our planet?

@thegreek- by waht standards did the people in the 1850's use to say a weather pattern was extreme or not? Is it the same as we use it today?

Could you cite where this observation was made? I partly ask because it is a miracle that our nation survived. With only 31 states in the early 1850's they had such a higher rate of extreme weather now didn't they?

asknot, as usual, your lack of intelligence is awe inspiring. Is it not hot in the south and freezing in the north, NOW AS WE SPEAK???? So what are you meaning when you say "all at once seems odd though.....hey??"

"What about the rest of the world?"

What about the rest of the world? Do you base your choices of what is right and wrong by what your neighbors are doing?

Tired- what is it, that government will control?

thegreek

Not necessarily. We are talking a vast area. It is normal to be screaming hot in the south and freezing in the north ! All at once.

With 3,794,100 sq miles of surface area in the USA there is bound to be a drougt or flood or extreme weather somewhere at any given time.!!
