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"

If you prefer those without coal or nuclear I hope you also like the dark and no power for you PC cause renewables have been proven to not be enough unless you are a sheeple.

They are working on it. Most Chinese people do not even have power. Kind of selfish that you don't think they should while using your I phone or smart phone or your computer setting in your house arguing on the internet over it while they are FREEZING... No wonder other countries HATE the arrogant US people !!

Serious air pollution plagues most major Chinese cities, where environmental protection has been long sacrificed for the sake of economic development. Coal burning and car emissions are major sources of pollution. In recent years, China has beefed up regulations and pledged financial resources to fight pollution.

Have you ever even been in a coal power plant??

That is not even a fair comparison.!! It is extremely obviously you do not understand the question. You are saying that bleach only stinks when it is released into the atmosphere but the factory that makes it smells like roses. That is what you are saying !!

No I am not trying to push your buttons. I just want to know why the power plant workers are not dropping like flies if the data YOU presented is factual, they should be in deep trouble with their health. You spew these so called facts but wont come to grips with the facts that the power plant workers are not affected by these deadly emissions... Why is that. If a person works in a rest home lifting elderly people they would be subject to back injuries. There are inherent risks to every job. If you work in a nuke plant, you are monitored for radiation. If coal emissions are so deadly in the air after leaving the smokestacks, why isnt it deadly to the people that work in the scrubbers, the boilers, and exposed to the deadly ash ? What is so stupid about you or anyone answering that question ??? Because you cant !!

So I need to post a link to the data that isnt there ???!!!

So. Do you all think these scrubbers maintain themselves without any maintenance work?? You think they clean themselves?? If you say the scrubbers are accountable for removing this dust that caused these deaths then you would have to agree that the workers that clean and maintain them should be getting that same disease !!! I say they ARENT.. There is NOTHING too look up ... IT AINT THERE... THAT IS MY POINT !!!

must be careful when we use numbers that are based on best educated guess verses actual deaths with definitive cause.

asknot...good evening. if your 13,000 person fatality is based on real body count then disregard this post. i read the report from the Clean Air Task Force where they stated that they estimate that 13,000 people die prematurely due mostly to the fine particulate matter that is realeased into the air. this estimate is down from previous estimates of around 24,000...thanks in part to installation os scrubbers as well as utilizing clean burning coal techonologies. the reduction in the number of coal-fired power plants also contributed to the lower estimation. while i think we all can agree that pure clean air is preferable, we must also understand that we have cotaminants that are released naturally into the air we breathe. the study also lumped many cardio-pulminary diseases into the study as well. it appears that the numbers have been extrapolated from large-scale epidemiological studies. while we must all do what we can to reduce pollutants to the air we breathe (even pot smoke) we mu

BUT you have no probelm believeing miners are more succectible to "black lung" diseases but the power plant workers should not get whatever this lung illness is that kills (an alleged) 13,000 people a year??? Why is it dumb to ask someone to explain?? Or are you saying you are dumb for not understanding the question?? You only pick up on whatever part of the discussion suits your arguement !!!And then you ignore the rest or make fun of it.
