Slippery Mitt doesn't care. As gov he shut down coal plants, but now he's for them. Which way is the wind blowing today?

Sure, it is sitting right next to practical and reliable wind and solar. Oops, maybe your right, it is a fiction, just like man made climate change.

This message is brought to you by wind power. Very reliably, too, I might add.

In Northie & my state, wind turbines didn't even have to set up powerlines. Wind turbines are right next to hydro-electric dams & powerlines. Get the efficiency up on future solar panels & 3 types of power production will all use the same powerlines. Meanwhile, the wind turbines have added extra capacity so hydro dams have more versatility. Hydro dams are the easiest power sources to adjust to the variability of wind turbines.

Yeah, those are the reasons for all the giant wind farms along the Columbia. Existing grid close to markets AND fantastic year-round wind.

The only fiction here is your higher education you boast about. Hay Less than a Box of Rocks what school are you going to teach at you never answered the question.

I love this Romney quote:

"And, by the way, I like coal. I'm going to make sure we can continue to burn clean coal. People in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. I want to get America and North America energy independent so we can create those jobs."

Reliable, only because it's backed by other forms of power production.

Let Romneyhood dine at the top of a coal-fired chimney for his next 10,000 meals. He would change his mind about 'clean coal', except he would be dead well before the 10,000th meal.

What's to love about two lies in one? There is no "clean coal" because it is incredibly uneconomical to stash cubic miles of high-pressure exhaust gas deep under cap strata that can keep it buried forever, so we are not burning any now and cannot burn any in the future.

However, romneyhood won't change his mind, because the coal fumes will make him dead, way before he has his 10,000th meal.

There's nothing dirty about CO2, it's invisible, odorless and vital to life on Earth. If you don't want to burn coal, don't. Just leave other people alone, so they can produce and use the fuel they need.

There's no such thing as clean solar or wind; every production process creates waste.

Which makes it just as ecnomomical as wind and solar. As how to store that CO2, just use plants to convert it in to O2. A system that has worked well for a couple of eons now.

Of course, the real problem for you is what would you do if they stopped using fossil fuels and nothing changed, that the temperatures continued to climb. Of course the first time people had to sit in the dark day after day they would be looking for the reason why and looking to punish someone. Just ask those in charge of ENRON when they started playing games with the lights.

Still struggling with arithmetic? For new installations, wind is now cheaper than coal in my area (and nationwide). Solar isn't quite ready for prime time, but will hit grid parity with coal in about seven years at present trend.
