"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."

American football is without a doubt my favorite sport.
What do you think Alex Smith is going to do?
And, Matt Flynn?
I think those two are the biggest chips in the free agent market now. Houston needs a different quarterback. Shaub isn't bad, but there are better QBs available.
And, I expect Sean Payton to make a really big stsatement to Roger Goodell. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Saints and 49ers play for the NFC championship.
I've always like the Giants, all the way back to the days of Y A Tittle and Fran Tarkenton. I really had them picked early in the season to be in the NFC championship game.
I'm an LSU fan. But, with Les Miles, LSU will never win another championship. And, they just gave him a 7-year extension. I don't think I'll even watch college football until Les Miles goes.
Dunno where Smith and Flynn might be going, I suppose of they let Vick go then they might bring in one or the other in Philly to fight for the job, I think Flynn has the better upside, I was never sold on Smith and apparently neither was Harbaugh. I am starting to agree on Schaub, he's had plenty of chances to shine but can't seem to get it done. I expect the Giants will be better next year along with the Saints, Payton is one of the best coaches out there. I think Washington sinks back to the bottom with RG3 out for an extended time and the Cowboys will never win with Romo. I don't follow college as much, try and see most of the Rutgers games though. Am disappointed with the lack of good bowl games all day long on New Year's Day, that was a great tradition.

Nazism (German: Nationalsozialismus; English long form National Socialism) was the ideology of the Nazi Party in Germany and related movements outside Germany. It is a variety of fascism that incorporates biological racism and antisemitism.
Nazism developed in Germany from the influence of the FAR-RIGHT racist Völkisch German nationalist movement and the anti-communist Freikorps paramilitary culture

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.

What about about the thug-huggers’ concerns?
Dissect the issues, 1 by 1:

Kill, don’t capture. We owe America’s lefties a big wet kiss for forcing the Obama administration into this highly effective policy. By making a cause celebre out of the imaginary suffering of blood-drenched terrorists at Gitmo, they inspired candidate Obama to promise to close the facility within the 1ST year of his presidency.

But no can do. Gitmo’s still open & not just because Congress wouldn’t let him close it. Our legal system benefits terrorists; they’re briefed on how to beat our laws. So President Obama & Co. figured out fast that captured terrorists are another “unfunded liability.” In office, Obama also learned that the terrorists aren’t kidding. The obvious answer? Just kill ’em.

Thank you, left-wing champions of injustice!

But killing terrorists only makes them martyrs. Hogwash. The opposite’s true. Imprison a terrorist & you WILL make him a martyr. Kill him & he’s dead.

Nobody’s attacking us in the name of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi these days (remember the Butcher of Baghdad?) & when terrorists seized a remote natural-gas facility in Algeria last mo., they weren’t yelling,“Remember Osama bin Laden!”

Instead, they demanded the release of the “Blind Sheik,” the mastermind of the 1ST Twin Towers attack, from a US prison.

Misplaced mercy inspires more attacks but killing terrorists deprives us of intelligence. As a former intel officer, I have some theoretical sympathy with this point but given our hopelessly prissy rules for interrogation today, there would be 0 value in taking even top terrorists prisoner.(Obama didn’t even try to capture Osama.) They follow our politics & policies & know that a CIA interrogator can’t lay a glove on them without going to jail.

By insisting that we had to treat captured terrorists like prep-school kids caught in a food fight, leftists forced Obama to send in the drones. The result is that “core al Qaeda” has been rendered ineffectual.

But no president should murder American citizens. Tell it to Abe Lincoln, Hollywood’s celebrity-president of the season, who invaded the South (which had not even threatened acts of terror).
The result? Perhaps 750,000 dead Americans. I believe Lincoln was our greatest president after Washington, but he wasn’t just about emancipation.

Our president has the authority to quell insurrections by force. American-born terrorists engage in insurrection. Case closed.
Consider the late Anwar al-Awlaki. Lefties argue he didn’t pose a sufficient threat to merit killing. Really? Here’s a traitor who joined our most virulent enemies & used his knowledge of our country to encourage, plan & facilitate attacks. His guilt was greater than that of some poor sap who strapped on a suicide bomb —just as crime bosses bear a heavier guilt than their trigger-men.

& if a foreign power can’t or won’t control its own territory, we have a legal right to intervene under the accepted conventions of warfare.

The same principle applies as in police work: If a criminal points a gun & won’t drop it, you shoot him. Awlaki could’ve saved his life by abjuring terrorism. Instead, he took his 16-year-old son along to make war on America. Then we got “outrage” over the boy’s death in a drone strike. Well, daddy shouldn’t have taken the kid on jihad.

This is not a difficult issue: When Americans turn violently against the United States, they lose the benefits of citizenship. When German-Americans served in Hitler’s military in World War II, we didn’t call a pre-battle time-out so American traitors could identify themselves and lawyer up.

But ... but ... the drone program’s counter-productive ...
No, the drone program’s the ONLY Obama-era policy that works.

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.
