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"

Greek, let's take away the EPA and such from the equation shall we?

The costs of fossil fuels would still go up due to the supply dwindling and demand rising.

It would still cost a lot politically as long as we are held hostage by our own need for fossil fuels from other nations. Not to mention our allies that are also troubled by getting oil and such from places like Russia.

Do you think the whole Ukraine issue would be so big if Europe didn't rely on Russia for energy?

But let's look at clean energy since certain people have nothing relevant to add to the topic.

There is nothing wrong with the development of cleaner energy sources and more variety in those sources. Geothermal power is used in Iceland, hydroelectric power is used by many nations and wind generates power in many places as well.

We know the cost of fossil fuels are high, both politically and economically as time goes on, so why not work to create energy from the strengths of a region.

There should be a day where everyone in the US Southwest uses some solar panels on their homes. Wind generated power should be increased in the Appalachia region.

Greek, do you ever get tired of being Tired's lickspittle?

Part of our issues with people like Tired is that he doesn't provide proof and doesn't accept any proof from others.

Your certainty means absolutely nothing without facts.

Face it Tired, you cannot prove you know more than I do, no more than I can prove that I know more than you.

Based on what you have offered, I understand it as well as you do.

Our form of capitalist society wouldn't let it really be free anyway.

As time goes on, if we are going to remain capitalistic, we are going to have to find jobs that pay. It doesn't seem quite feasible that green tech is going to have a lot of employee growth like traditional fossil fuel oriented industry does.

Once the cost outlay is achieved they generate power that's at no cost to them !If we could get off our arses and get to work on technology like this we all would be better off !

Company and federal officials have marked the start of construction on a $1 billion solar power generating station in the desert 50 miles south of Las Vegas.

Executives with Arizona-based First Solar Inc. and Florida-based NextEra Energy Resources joined federal Bureau of Land Management chief Neil Kornze at a ceremony Wednesday at the site of the 250-megawatt project, dubbed Silver State South. It is expected to produce enough electricity to power about 80,000 California homes when it is completed in 2016.

Nope, they are as predictable and stupid at the Congressional Republicans.

If memory serves me correctly, Al Gore avoided being around Bill Clinton much his last 2 years. I think Bush visited one of the southern states during his final year and the Governor wouldn't meet him at the airport.

So yeah, most of the Dems that are looking for reelection, especially in Purple states, will stay far away from Obama. Heck...Hilary is not only throwing him under the bus...she's jumping in and running him over with it.

I reason it the same way the Republicans turned on Bush during his two last years....they want to get reelected.

Most Presidents are political poison during their last two years. the Dems are doing exactly what I expect them to do.

Don't get flustered at him because you believed the cherry picked lines that the Far Right fed you. Always check your sources.

In the same interview he said, "This notion of no coal, I think, is an illusion, because the fact of the matter is that right now, we are getting a lot of our energy from coal, and China is building a coal-fired plant once a week. So what we have to do then is we have to figure out how can we use coal without emitting greenhouse gases and carbon. And how can we sequester that carbon and capture it? If we can't, then we're going to still be working on alternatives."

The energy industry is a whole different ball of wax from the pollution issue. There is so much that goes into the pricing of fuel/energy and the Govt regulations are just a piece of it.

Kendall78: I watched a 60 minutes thing a few years ago where thy interviewed a guy that developed something in a box that was almost pollution free technology and supposedly has installed one at Google and some other places around silicon valley. What ever happened to that?
