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"

if your "no" response is to the last line...please consider that the last line has several innuendos.

the interesting thing about breaking records are that some of the current records we are breaking were set before we had the current influences. as i am also certain that there will be records set today that will be broken on either side of the scale in the future...assuming we have a planet left to set records. the closing of the book of life can be slammed shut at any time. btw...glaciers in new zealand have been increasing. the world is indeed upside down. 8-)

The majority of my life (33 years) the heat came from wood. Its good reliable and relatively cheap to heat with. It is "dirty" but not so much that it can't be easily dealt with.

The ash has a real good use. Traction on snow in the winter. Can't count the times I seen my dad spreading it out on the driveway after he got the driveway clear.

Also stoves can be bought with and retrofitted with catalytic convertors.

In fact if I were in the market for one I would buy a stove made of soapstone. The put out heat long after the fire goes out in addition to lasting a lot longer than cast iron stoves and they don't need firebrick in them. I say that because at one time dad had a problem finding firebrick for our stove.

EPA Cracking Down on Wood Stoves New U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations could change the way you heat your home. The new regulations would lower the level of emissions wood stoves can release. Forbes Magazine reports that the regulations would ban the production and sale of 80 percent of the types of stoves people currently use.

Takes a few weeks for it to be released to the media. You didnt believe that 89% of the "sooon to be shut down dirty coal power plants" were running in Jan 14 or that there was a shortage of gas to run the gas plants.

Ya see - Dirty soon to be retired coal plants were running. Many gas units couldnt get gas because of winter heating and the pipe capacity was full. What we gonna do when they shuttem down??

FERC Commissioner Philip Moeller said “early numbers” suggest that 9,000 MW of capacity in PJM was unable to get sufficient gas during the cold snap. That is somewhat surprising because other regions of the country, namely New England, are thought to be more exposed to reliability problems due to a growing dependence on gas for both power generation and heating. FERC staff said New England was spared problems during the cold snap because temperatures there were actually “well below their all time winter peak,” requiring no emergency procedures.

The new dependence of US electrical generation on natural gas has raised new threats to both electrical and natural gas systems as each system becomes more dependent on the other. The problem is especially dangerous at winter electrical peak, because natural gas is also used for direct home and business heating. Demand for both gas and electricity is at its highest for both power sources at the same time in extremely cold weather. Shortages of gas cause shortages of electricity. We saw this clearly last winter in New England.

And another report from calhounpowerline dot com. - - - Highly Centralized Eastern Interconnect Showing More Signs of Brittleness in Cold January 22, 2014 tags: FERC Issues, WV Blackout.The Eastern Interconnect, the inter-connected grid system that ties together all of the US and Canada east of the Rockies, except for most of Texas, is showing all the danger signs of hyper-centralization and dependence on high voltage transmission. Back in early January, the first big cold snap caused PJM Interconnection to set a new winter peak load record and resulted in appeals to customers to reduce their electrical use. Now we have this account of the multiple stresses that this winter’s cold weather is putting on our brittle electric grid.
