Barack Obama, our next President

according to your thinking we wouldn't have jets, because they weren't around when the Wright brothers first flew....you know the gov't shouldn't have spent money developing
jet engines/jet power
diesel locomotive engines, coal fired was just fine

Sorry. The comment was intended for general consumption, not aimed at you.

However, Galt is amused and somewhat disturbed by folks from places like New York and Florida who think it's OK to ruin the Dakotas with wind turbines and the Mohave with solar panels so that they can live in sealed high-rise condos with air conditioning.

Even if the power transmission was feasible, which it isn't.

And then there is the issue of transmission lines.

What I was attempting to point out is all energy sources has their own impacts on the environment.
The myth of clean energy.
For example the number of wind turbines-using the most optimized of these and assuming the blades are what is needed in the different environments- it would take all of North Dakota and South Dakota covered by these to supply the needs of the US according to some estimates.
The actual number and land volume it would take is based on estimates. I could not find a definite number.
Of course, this is not the environmental impact that most Americans would want.
One problem with wind generated eletricity is that you can't push it very far. Wind electricty generated in the Dakotas would never reach californis. You could, however, transport carbon base fueks ftom the Dakotas to California.

A revoked but "apparently valid [US] passport can be used for travel until officially taken by an arresting officer"

lol! No son. It's actually a compliment that the likes of you obviously know when it's safer to keep your mouth shut instead.

At least it proves you're not completely brainless, just scared.

""John McCain in Syria, meets rebels""
""Sen. John McCain, one of the Senate’s loudest voices for further intervention in Syria, snuck into the country and met with rebel leaders Monday, his office confirmed to POLITICO.
The Arizona Republican made the trip from Turkey into Syria alongside Gen. Salam Idris, according to The Daily Beast, which first reported McCain’s visit. Idris leads the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army and accompanied McCain as they met with rebel leaders from throughout the country.

Thanks for being so stupid, Ed!!
I don't have to make you look like an idiot, you do it all by yourself!!
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA
This is almost as much fun as mocking your stupid ignorance concerning Gitmo!!
"nutsucker"
You are forgetting the red line in the sand president nobama drew. Mc Cain was at least able to talk to the Syrian rebels, nobama apparently is unable to do so.
Speaking of Gitmo, did not president nobama, say his first priority would be to close Gitmo. Just like all of his BS promises no action, 4 1/2 years in office, closing Gitmo was just another of his lies. nobama has nary a clue. Whats up today, another global warming speech. Why does nobama not make positive actions to lower the number of American's on food stamps? Or figure out why household incomes are falling? Or why fewer American's are paying the federal income taxes that support your worthless azz. Or why home values and home sales are at lower than the levels when he took office.
It is always a good day when you show up to spew your left wing garbage, it can be amusing.

I wouldn't mind a cash for cluckers program for golf carts. My gas powered 1989 Club Car has seen better days. Our co-op campground is a bit hilly and having an electric cart 10 to 15 years ago with three teenagers was impractical. An electric cart would never be idle long enough to get fully charged. However, now an electric cart would be more economical.
Wonder if his golf cart is still working and he is healthy

Promoting nuclear energy is (maybe implicitly) a cornerstone to promoting nuclear energy. The big energy producers like Exelon and FENOC will have an incentive to replace fossil generated electricity with nuclear by trading credits within their own production line.
BTW, the guy you voted for ran on a cap and trade platform too.

And then there is the issue of transmission lines.
Power transmission is very feasible and accounts for 22% of South Dakota energy needs and $4 billion in local business and government revenue. It pays to go wind in the Dakotas! "SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(AP)— A new report from the U.S. Energy Department says that South Dakota in 2011 had the capacity to generate about 22 percent of its electricity from wind energy, ranking first among all states.

Energy Secretary Steven Chu says that wind power represented 32 percent of all new electric capacity additions in the United States last year and accounted for $14 billion in new investment.

The department says that the percentage of wind equipment made in America also increased dramatically.

Nearly 70 percent of the wind turbines, towers, blades, gears and generators installed at U.S. wind farms last year come from domestic manufacturers, doubling from 35 percent in 2005."

"Is" implies that it exists, which it does not, nor do the wind turbines.

If this can be built and financed privately, go for it.

Galt is betting that the radical environmentalists will shoot this down cold.
