Here in rainy Washington state & at the 48th parallel, solar isn't the answer. However, wind turbines are increasingly being used since the wind turbines can use the same power lines to send electric power to citizens. Hydro & wind turbines are the easiest & most successful electrical generating blending methods.

So, how much did your wind setup cost?
By the way, how old are you, 12? Just wondering from the juvenile way you change peoples names.

The truth is that "left is not right" is actually, "left is right, & right is left behind".
The "Church of Climatology" is a fraud.

Like you would know, remember last year Europe was under water, before that under 10 ft of snow. All normal weather of course.
But for the 10 or so tea baggers who post on topix under a 100 different aliases you are still a voice in the wilderness, saying the same ole crap over n over. Not one of you have even suggested one good idea in improving the Government it's all about what is wrong with it. The same with Climate change, it's not the climate that is the problem, its the CHANGE. You baggers can't stand change so therefore it doesn't exist!
You keep hanging on to you flawed science and beliefs.

Pathetic. If you can't dent the science, then deny the science posts with silly icons, huh.. losers..

oh my 'middle', don't hold back so much. your like japan trying to hold all of their radioactive water from the ocean. speaking of which, if one of those spent fuel pools falls we will no longer have to worry about anything. litesong will rejoice. there is no way to fix a stupid person like him. weather is weather, three nuclear reactor cores melting out of the containment buildings, and at this time nobody knows where they are at, spent radioactive mox fuel rods in pools high in the air, that are in danger of falling and catchingfire, joining with the missing cores and radioactive water leaking into the ocean should concern his primate mind more than the madeup fairytale of global warming caused by man.

Aww kal is hurting in the middle..

Most at risk cities Dhaka, Mumbai, Manila, Kolkata, Bangkok – lowest risk in London, Paris

With commercial activity and the middle classes predominantly based in urban centres, Maplecroft has also calculated the risks to the world’s largest cities to pinpoint where the economic exposure will be highest over the next 30 years.

According to the CCVI’s sub-national calculations, of the 50 cities studied, five present an ‘extreme risk’– Dhaka in Bangladesh; Mumbai and Kolkata in India; Manila in the Philippines and Thailand’s Bangkok – while only two London and Paris were classified as ‘low risk.’ Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta, which encompasses the cities of Guangzhou, Dongguan and Foshan and make up China’s manufacturing heartland, are among the most exposed to physical risks from extreme climate-related events.

P.S. No shoreline is risk-free, though..

gee wizz 'space', the biggest city at risk is earth. stand next to a mox fuel rod, better yet pick one up and show it to us. dumbass. and you think the weather is scary, what a dumbass.

.. by PCROBERTS .. The Fukushima catastrophe has hardly begun. Yet already the radioactive water pouring into the Pacific Ocean has made fish dangerous to eat unless a person is willing to accept a higher risk of cancer.

Fukushima has the potential of making Japan uninhabitable and of polluting the air, water, and soil of the US with radioactivity. Yet the crisis is seldom mentioned in the US media. In Japan the government just passed a law that could be used to imprison Japanese journalists who report truthfully on the dire situation.

Take the time to familiarize yourself with the online information about Fukushima.. According to the presstitute media, Americans face threats from Iran and Syria and from whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden. The real threats are simply not in the news.

If you search Fukushima, you will find information that the presstitute media hides from you. See for example, http://www.globalresearch.ca/28-signs-that-th... .

A good aerodynamicist knows its far more efficient to tap the airs 300 to 500 feet off the ground with large & business owned wind turbines. "deaf jeff" doesn't have science & mathematics degrees to know this, tho.
