Since no die-hard Republicans without a brain posted it, I posted the following: I knew it! The Republicans PROMISED that President Obama would cut drilling. There was all the hoopla in the 2008 elections about the "Chinese drilling for oil 50 miles off the coast of Florida", and the claims after the BP - Deepwater Horizon that a President Obama would stop new drilling and cut oil production. It took almost 6 years, but the drillers are cutting back on drilling, so it MUST be President Obama's fault! I wonder how many people will believe that?

"To answer the question, because they haven't been looking very hard. Not too high on their priority list." ===================================================== LOL! kkimes, why don't you pose that rhetoric to Al Armendariz, you know, the EPA SW director that had to resign after it was revealed that he and the EPA were out to CRUCIFY the oil industry.

"As I have said before, if a bird can't fly through these slow moving blades without getting himself killed, he's too stupid to find food." ===================== Typical of the ignorance as to wind turbines. The blades are rotating any where from 100 to 180 mph at the tips. Major League Baseball players have trouble dodging a 90 mph fastball.

Thanks for the Bday wishes! As far as the cng car exploding comment, I was just playing the devil's advocate. Hopefully they wouldn't explode so easily in a wreck. Have a great week!

Here in Oregon the state has a FIT Program (Feed In Tariff) started 3 years ago. Every quarter there is an allotment of 15 year contracts for electricity the price per kilowatt determined by the legislature. The price per kilowatt on our contract with our local power company, PGE, was about $.40/ kWh giving use a return on the solar investment purchase price of 7-8 years. It's a way for the individual to invest in electrical production in comparison to the electrical company investment to increase renewable production. We have a large house with 80 solar panels on the roof. The Leaf requires maybe 12 panels, depending on miles driven,(9000 miles/year). Don't analyze my figures too much I'm mainly generalizing from memory. Thanks for asking.
