Where have you been, Sweetie?

I hope you are not still falling down.

Please keep yourself upright, if you know what I mean.

Has your wife been enjoying too many helpings of West Indian Home Fries/hash browns?

They were quite tasty as I recall. The home fries, that is.

PLEASE PETITION YOUR UTILITY COMPANY TO STOP USING KENTUCKY COAL!!!. Coal companies in my area are destroying our land and rivers and water supplies. Coal companies here will not hire talented, experienced people who know what theyre doing. they only hire people with influence and relatives. They will not hire you if you're poor or how much know you no matter how smart or experienced you are!. This is the problem we are having, tell your Utility company to switch to Natural gas, it's cheaper and cleaner too!.
And, where will the displaced people in the coal industry work?

I was thinking they had gone on one of those gay cruises that you read about.

I can see them pool-side, applying lotion to one another.

Maybe they can help put the mountain tops back together.

I have nothing against shutting down Big Coal. But one has to be honest about the alternatives. In my home state, which has no shale and therefore no potential for fracking or any other type of natural gas extraction, there is a bill in the legislature at the moment to ban transport of fracking waste over our state lines. Apparently there is so much liquid waste generated, of undisclosed composition, that the producers are dumping it in the neighboring states...

In IL much of electric generation comes from coal, and there are coal mines (both active and inactive) throughout the state. State is dedicating substantial funds to study ways to clean up the industry rather than shutting it down.

CT is mainly nuclear, with some coal generated power. Natural gas is popular for residential heating uses (along with oil which is being slowly phased out). At some point the power generation will switch over to natural gas as well. But we are dependent on the outside region for everything other than nuclear.

We should be glad there's no fracking here. It's a complete mess. The groundwater, the flames coming out of faucet, the showers that burn your skin, rashes and all the trucks. People in PA have it pretty bad in certain areas.

And god help them if they contaminate that water that comes from the Catskills and provides most of the drinking water for New York City.

Even some "greenies" are starting to reconsider nuclear power. It's the only good answer to climate change right now that I can see...though Japan is going another way now. And maybe France too? And Germany I think.

Is there such a thing as "clean coal" or is that BS? An oxymoron.

I just called Yankee Gas Co this morning.

Still no plans for gas lines in my neighborhood.

Though they have it in our town.

I know the Gov is pushing it in the state. Can't wait!

You see much of that in IL. When I was much younger we spent the morning at a nuclear power plant about 30 minutes away, and then spent the afternoon searching for fossils in the coal spoil piles that were within the shadows of the plant. Now nuclear is on the way out in IL. One plant on the shores of Lake Michigan has been mothballed. All of the over run power plants that are only used in summer for brown out protection are natural gas.

They're definitely working on it and I know there have been strides in carbon recapture, the Sierra Club and Greenpeace notwithstanding.

We can't reject everything, even nuclear.

Wind and solar and hamsters just aren't going to do it for us right now.

(And I wonder how much of that fracked gas and oil CT uses??)

I just spoke again to the Yankee Gas rep and she said my town is only 10% served by gas lines. So in other words, go ahead and buy another's year supply of oil, let's see 800 gallons X 3.69 or 3.89 don't know yet! oy!!!!

hamsters?

Dont forget hydroelectric.

The natural gas CT uses is probably 100% fracked. The other states are trying to externalize the environmental costs - CT is saying no - not our problem.

Solar actually has more potential here than you would think. I wouldnt hold your breath on Malloys natural gas extension - he might not get reelected and I am not sure how institutionalized his initiaves are.

Thorium is the future of nuclear power. This is where more money and research should be going...

We just want the energy from it.

Not holding my breath or hanging by my thumbs.

Getting ready to cough up another $3 grand to stay warm next winter.

Interesting.

The benefits are many.

And something Harry Reid and Orin Hatch agree on.

Looks promising.

Isnt that what they give to mental patients? Or is that thorazine?(where is Joel when we need him)

When I was in grad school we used to make fun of the nuclear studies students. Saw it as a dying profession. Now they are probably laughing at us.

Oh, don't start talking about Thorium. There are parts of Chicago and the suburbs that glow because of the disposal of thorium from the manufacture of glass mantles. That includes the Gold Coast http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2014-04-17...

absolutely. Dan on NPR yesterday flatly said once a product has come to the market its not the moral responsibility of the buyers to voluntarily assume extra "costs" (i.e. provide for waste disposal). Its the responsibility of the seller via the free market pricing.
