"Taylor has crunched the numbers and determined that these elements mean the true cost of wind power is more like double the advertised numbers.
He explains that he started with 8.2 cents per kWh, reflecting total installation costs of $2,000 per kw of capacity. Then backed out an assumed 30-year lifespan for the turbines (optimistic), which increases the cost to 9.3 cents per kwh. Then after backing out the effect of subsidies allowing accelerated depreciation for wind investments you get 10.1 cents. Next, add the costs of keeping gas-fired plants available, but running at reduced capacity, to balance the variable performance of wind 1.7 cents. Extra fuel for those plants adds another 0.6 cents. Finally, tack on 2.7 cents for new transmission line investments needed to get new wind power to market. The whole shebang adds up to 15 cents per kwh.
Ouch.
As Taylor figures it, natural gas would need to cost upwards of $20 per mmBTU before gas-fired power would cost as much as wind."
WTF is that? NG is cheap presently because it's become plentiful, that doesn't mean that the future won't include wind, solar and wave technology. And one more time the costs for electricity varies by region of the nation and then region of the globe. It ain't all about yours or Flack's self centered azzes pal, there are people in faraway places that can no longer afford electricity generated by fossil fuels__and you don't have to look very far.

Typical of your ignorance.
Under Obama, America is producing far more oil and natural gas than ever imagined by 'oilman' Bush.
More production than in the past 15 years, in fact.
Bush and Co. were into procuring oil by invasion.
How'd that work?? They didn't get any for a Trillion Dollar war!!
Did I mention that Bush was a failure in the oil business??

Oil production on federal land is down. Thank advances in fraking technology for the increase in oil production, not obama. Profits are driving technological advancements in oil production.

Steyn on Europe's weakness

John Keegan, the great military historian, said that a nation without a military is in a sense no longer a nation. One of the few remaining serious second-tier powers is now joining their ranks: Under the "Conservative" premiership of David Cameron, a nation that within living memory governed a fifth of the earth's surface and a quarter of its population and provided what global order there was for much of the rest will have a military incapable of independent force projection. Were the Argies to seize the Falklands today, Her Majesty's Government would have to content itself with going to the U.N. and getting a strong resolution. Were the toppling of Saddam to be attempted today, Britain would be incapable of reprising the role it played eight years ago of holding down the lower third of Iraq all but singlehanded while the Yanks pressed on to Baghdad.

But beyond that, in a more general sense, nations that abandon their militaries tend also to abandon their national interests: Increasingly, instead of policies, they have attitudes. "Global warming" "saving" the planet is the perfect preoccupation for the ever-more-refined sensibilities of the post-national nation.

While Europe slept in & slept around, new powers emerged. China and India, on course to be the world's top 2 economies within a couple of decades, both act as more or less conventional nation-states. So too do Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and many lesser players. We live on a planet in which the wealthiest societies in history, from Norway to New Zealand, are incapable of defending their own borders while basket cases like North Korea and Pakistan have gone nuclear, and Sudan and Somalia are anxious to follow.

Whatever supple lies it may tell itself, a rich nation that cannot bother keeping up an army is retreating not only from imperialism & conquest but also from greatness. Continentals enjoy more paid leisure time than anybody else, yet they produce less and less great art, music, literature. A land of universal welfare invariably universalizes mediocrity.

Whether Greece defaults or gets bailed out one mo' time doesn't really matter: It's insolvent & there isn't enough money in Germany to obscure that fact indefinitely. The longer "political reality" tries to dodge real reality, the bloodier the eventual reacquaintance will be. Europeans are going to have to relearn impulses 3 generations of Continentals have learned to regard as hopelessly vulgar. Can they do that? A land of 30-year-old students and 50-year-old retirees has so thoroughly diverted the great stream of life that it barely comprehends what's at stake. "Europe" as a geopolitical rather than geographical concept has been for half a century the most conventional of conventional wisdom. Those, like Britain's Euroskeptics, who dissented from it were derided as "swivel-eyed" "loony tunes." The loons were right, and the smart set the political class, the universities, the BBC, Le Monde were wrong. "Europe" was a blueprint for sclerosis and decline, and then a sudden, devastating fall. As the "loony tunes" could have told them, it ends with, "That's all, folks."

You can post all the Wikipedia opinion (not fact) that you want, but it doesn't change the fact the the American left presently sides with those who are dedicated to killing all Jews.
that is fact which is why I posted it, but it doesnt fit you agenda
and the Right doesnt want anyone to realize that their views are common with the Nazi's and the Fascist just like the Left doesnt like the Idea that their views are more in common with Lenin's veiws.
