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"

Shop....you should not focus so much on the co2 aspect of air pollution. there so many other pollutants that are emitted in to our air that provide zero benefit such as the conversion into the oxygen we breathe. while the trees that split the co2 into c and o2 provide the mechanism, we need to be cautious in the reduction and and "air" that we provide the trees that provide the recycling of gases. that is my primary point...not to argue about whether co2 is a greenhouse gas or not. the warming of the environment has many causes. yes the carbon tax was a way to nudge polluters to switch to cleaner technologies. it will be interesting to see how well the new proposed consortium of clean energy investors fare and how deep they are willing to dig into their foundations pockets.

its simply a lie, the climate has changed since time began, we don't have glacier over Ohio anymore and that has nothing to do with my SUV

Global warming is a Socialist dream come true, a way of granting an over reaching Govt with more power over our lives

co2 is not a pollutant its a trace gas that provides the very oxygen we breath

Shop.... we are in a pickle in that we need to maintain the proper balance of the relationship between our CO2 and O2. we have to figure out ways in which to tilt the balance in our favor. personally i would like to see more tree's being planted. other than that it is up to those that set energy policies around the owrld and control of the worlds deforestation. we have done poorly in renewing that which we hve taken or manipulated. however, the earth herself does some pretty nasty things that affect our environment. that is something we just have to deal with.

Shop...it is happening at this moment. i think if anything, it will use market force to effect the change in our energy producers. with the funds as well as any tax credits offered by the governemnt, alternative can take over...and in some areas it should. i just think that, especially, the larger energy producers need to get onboard as quickly as possible. otherwise they risk loss of market and profit....both are a very bad thing.

But CO2 is NOT a pollutant

absolem when a viable alternative is available I think we could move to something more environmentally friendly but to try and force it is folly at best

Beright....it is a well known fact that reducing pollutants in the air that we depend on is a good thing. we should be encouraging our energy providers to work within their current service areas for ways in which to generate reliable energy. i think that the challenge that they will be facing from the recent announcement of an alliance to be formed between private and public interests is evolving. i think you will agree that less money going to the mideast is a good thing. getting the rest of the nations to go along will be almost impossible. Putin is not ready to give up his riches derived from the oil and gas pipelines that he essentially controls. not to tmention the Saudis...and our Politicians(Foundations).

If global climate change is man-made, then the believers of the world cannot do anything to stop it without getting China and India to agree to limit their fossil fuel use and Brazil and Indonesia to limit the destruction of their rainforests.

Morn'n abby , yes I agree !

Facing the threat to their dominance, it would be wise for the carbon burners to have a seat at the table. The change is inevitable as nuclear, being considered clean, will end the argument for carbon energy production.....unless it is geographically impossiblem

Good morning OWO... I trust you are well. It is with some caution and mild trepidation that I agree with you regarding the subject of private monies in the development of cleaner energy. There are many unkn po was regarding any collaborative effort of the private investors and government.

The answer to it all will be a Carbon Tax, they will toss around phrases like "revenue neutral" which will be a baldface lie, but like Obamacare, by the time the lie is exposed, it will be too late

Sure they are Coal, the answer to any progresssive socialist problem is to take more of your money and your liberties, we lose everyday we allow them to be in charge
