What is needed is not so much "alternative energy", but rather the ability to store massive amounts of energy and the ability to transmit power over long distances efficiently. Without those, wind, solar, geothermal. etc will never be more than trivial sources.
Why did you throw geothermal in that group?

Hydropower and wavepower, to name two that are 24/7.

Of course, living in a box inhibits your ability to see anything but the past.

Repugnants are as strongly against nuclear power ad are Dems.

Worldwide, nuclear power is hated by citizens. Even France is reconsidering it's use of nuclear power.

But you're too stupid to see any of that, you're still locked in the coal era, where I've made you look the fool for several years now!!

Most are clueless about the difference between Chernobyl and US reactor design.
In fact, most people would identify the cooling towers as the reactor buildings.
True. But what does the Fukushima plan design look like?

The one study said it could be done safely; however, is it always done safely is what the rest of the article is about. Methane has been found in ground water near fracking sites. Cleaning this up should be at the expense of the company doing the fracking not the homeowner.

Shell seems optimistic in their ability to deal with all the sulfur. However, the large amounts remains an environmental concern.

Snowden should have followed the whistle blower laws.
However, if he had stopped with stating the NSA lied to congress when they stated they were not collecting data on all Americas he may have been okay.
When Snowden became all Wikileaks and started informing foreign governments, he caused his own woes.
Hong Kong just allowed Snowden leave the country-whatever your trading partners implied.

"The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, itís not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.

So, you know, I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have toĖ if youíre going to do this ó find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally donít have access to this kind of weapon."

One cannot develop something that doesn't exist.

All the sources that you cited have severe geographical limitations, severe reliability problems, and significant environmental effects. All require fossil fuel backup sources for reliability.

Wow, I don't know what government you have been paying attention to but its obviously not the same one I've had my eye on.
What are you mumbling about?

You need to state what your objection is.

What do you find bad about the whistle blower law? What do you think needs changed?

Or are you saying the Obama admin is corrupt and the whistle blower law does not protect individuals?

"Has been found" means what?

Many water wells release hydrogen sulfide completely unrelated to any gas drilling activity.

Fracking will turn out to be the most devastating environmental disasters to visit humanity.

Your ignorance concerning this issue is as dumb as your ignorance concerning coal.

Y'see, it's all geology, a subject you know nothing about. A field where I earn my living. The very idea that you can break the rocks deep in the earth's crust and have no fissures or cracks extending into aquifers or rivers is pure stupidity that only the truly ignorant can believe.

Likely you've never been to a fracking site. You have no idea what occurs there. It's not pretty, it's not clean, it's not safe.

When the potable water supplies are contaminated, there will be no turning back, as GE will get to sell every household in America filtration systems.

More corporate control of citizens.
