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 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?

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.

Details have been released on a previously unpublicized 2013 assault by snipers on PG&E's Metcalf transmission substation.

The incident was kept under wraps, but since Jon Wellinghoff stepped down as FERC Chairman in November, he is raising awareness on the attack.

More than 100 bullets were fired into the substation within 20 minutes, knocking out 17 of the 20 transformers.

Although PG&E was able to avoid loss of service, utility workers spent 27 days repairing the damage.

The FBI, which is leading the investigation, considers the incident vandalism. Wellinghoff, now energy law attorney, said he believed the incident was domestic terror and was concerned that the attack was a test for an even larger attack.

The sniper(s) were not only outside the substations fence but outside the cameras view, Wellinghoff said.

YIKES!!!

Tritium was discovered in groundwater outside of the Perry nuclear power plant in Ohio.

Workers with plant operator FirstEnergy (NYSE: FE) identified a leak on a feed water Venturi. Samples were taken and there was a positive result for tritium in the under drain system in the Auxiliary Building.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency limit for groundwater is 20,000 pCi/l. The samples showed 46,000 pCi/l.

Looks like Freedom enterprise s, will be skating free of responsibility from the spill, is this what some mean by deregualtion. Ironically, Billy was boasting about a bill passed to limit the EPA, the same day as the Elk river leak and the Kraton Fishkill leak.The derp quotient is strong in the local federal reps.

“Figueres added that the deep partisan divide in the U.S. Congress is “very detrimental” to passing any sort of legislation to fight global warming”.

We already have enough regulation for the time being. We are supporting solar and wind. We are killing coal. Shale Gas use is on the rise. These are all steps to take to combat climate change. People seem to forget this and make it sound like we are standing still.

Ford has come out with an aluminum truck to save fuel.

Let’s allow companies and industry catch up to the newest laws.

I think the Chinese and India need to pass some laws as they are the biggest emitters now.
