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"

"Yeah but I havent seen my taxes go up , have you ?"

....perfect example of the train of thought of many americans. the politicians do a great job of sweeping our financial woes under the proverbial carpet...which answers why there are no smooth carpets in government. in addition, if they don't pay taxes now...they would you expect to pay in the future...your polticicians have bought manies vote way to cheap.

as found in the publication...Energy Tax policies of the 113th congress:

Energy tax policy involves the use of one of the government’s main fiscal instruments, taxes (both as an incentive and as a disincentive) to alter the allocation or configuration of energy resources and their use. In theory, energy taxes and subsidies, like tax policy instruments in general, are intended either to correct a problem or distortion in the energy markets or to achieve some economic (efficiency, equity, or macroeconomic) objective. In practice, however, energy tax policy in the United States is made in a political setting, determined by fiscal dictates and the views and interests of the key players in this setting, including policymakers, special interest groups, and academic scholars. As a result, enacted tax policy embodies compromises between economic and political goals, which could either mitigate or compound existing distortions."

It wasn't US. We are paying dearly for it one way or another I guarantee you.

Climate Deal: China promises to begin reducing carbon emissions 15 years from now. India , already one of the top three emitters, announced it will be tripling its coal-fired electricity capacity by 2030........................Meanwhile, the Obama administration is effectively dismantling America’s entire coal industry. So, who got the deal?

well.......i was hoping to get your thoughts regarding the non-co2 elements that makes up the air and subsequent precipatate that we are all exposed to in some way. how would you suggest maintaining a happy relationship of us and CO2?

gasses into our surface areas is of utmost concern. trying to get all nations on board is akin to herding cats. some processes will need to be essential for the forseeable future and must be limited.

industrial processes and biomass burning. Carbon monoxide binds to hemoglobin in red blood cells, reducing their ability to transport and release oxygen throughout the body. Low exposures can aggravate cardiac ailments, while high exposures cause central nervous system impairment or death. It also plays a role in the generation of ground-level ozone.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including hydrocarbons (CxHy) but also other organic chemicals are emitted from a very wide range of sources, including fossil fuel combustion, industrial activities, and natural emissions from vegetation and fires. Some anthropogenic VOCs such as benzene are known carcinogens."

Shop....to continue....my concern regarding pollutants involves the purported warming or simple changes in weather patterns. the stratification process by which the pollutants are distributed should be of great concern. the wind and flow of air is non-discriminitory. the solubility of suspended chemicals and condensing of

"Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is a gas formed when sulfur is exposed to oxygen at high temperatures during fossil fuel combustion, oil refining, or metal smelting.

Nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2, referred together as NOx) are highly reactive gases formed when oxygen and nitrogen react at high temperatures during combustion or lightning strikes. Nitrogen present in fuel can also be emitted as NOx during combustion. Emissions are dominated by fossil fuel combustion at northern mid-latitudes and by biomass burning in the tropics

In the atmosphere NOx reacts with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and carbon monoxide to produce ground-level ozone through a complicated chain reaction mechanism. It is eventually oxidized to nitric acid (HNO3). Like sulfuric acid, nitric acid contributes to acid deposition and to aerosol formation.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas formed by incomplete combustion of carbon in fuel. The main source is motor vehicle exhaust, along with industrial
