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"

What about China?

U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2013 were 10 percent lower than 2005 levels, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Between 2005 and 2011, all four Census regions – West, South, Midwest and Northeast – had declines in emissions, with the Northeast experiencing the largest reduction. At the state level, Nebraska had a 20 percent emissions increase while Nevada showed a 33 percent decrease. The Midwest, West and South regions have more diverse state-level characteristics, which contributed to slower net emissions declines compared to the Northeast.

This should help all those on fixed incomes in the USA:

Electricity prices are probably on their way up across much of the U.S. as coal-fired plants, the dominant source of cheap power, shut down in response to environmental regulations and economic forces. The Energy Department predicts retail power prices will rise 4 percent on average this year, the biggest jump since 2008. By 2020, prices are expected to climb an additional 13 percent, a forecast that does not include the costs of coming environmental rules.

WOW! NEVER SAW THAT ONE COMING! lol

Sounds like to me the power industry lobbyists bought themselves some "representatives" to rig the system in their favor.

No surprise.

America for sale to the highest bidder.

The Oklahoma House of Representatives passed a bill earlier this week that may add extra charges to utility customers who want to install rooftop solar panels or small wind turbines.

The House passed Senate Bill 1456 in a 83-5 vote. The Senate approved the bill in March.

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) would create a separate customer class and monthly surcharge for distributed generation from rooftop solar or small wind turbines, according to The Oklahoman.

Pffft! What we need is an atmospheric processor.

I hear Weyland-Yutani makes them.

Seems you left this sentence out of post...

the fact that the UN is considering concepts like carbon vacuuming -- which the UN and other climatologists had turned their noses up to ;)

International efforts to combat global warming are so broken that it's come to this: hoovering massive amounts of carbon dioxide out of the sky.

A body of scientists convened under the auspices of the United Nations is giving more weight to the idea that vacuuming vast stores of CO2 from the skies and burying it in the ground may be necessary to limit the temperature rise to the internationally agreed safe level of 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit above pre-industrial levels.

Disclaimer: I did not find this on April Fools day.

thegreek take a little heart in knowing that the people of this nation only act after something has affected them.

The shortage of available generating capacity will eventually bite everyone in the behind.

Tired- our oil is of the global market oil. The Chinese alone have ventured about 35% of the capital for the shale plays that are taking place around this company

"I don't see how advocating responsibility is a bad thing!"

It's not.

You may do whatever you like and I will comment as well as I will like. Freedom of speech is such a wonderful thing.

The World Meteorological Organization said that 2013 was in the top ten for warmest since they took those records in 1850.

From their page, "Thirteen of the 14 warmest years on record have all occurred in the 21st century."

According to the Weather Channel, the deniers love those that tell weather, 2013 was one of the top hottest since modern temperature records began in 1850.

"why has there been no warming in the last dozen years and yet co2 continues to climb?"

Why 12? Why don't you go by the averages of the past century? Are you cherry picking with the information again?

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...i looked into it and he did. you really ought to check it out sometime. it was really good....and i only thought he was good with Bob Hope in the "Road to" series.
