2013- Massachusetts officials will be asked about loaning ARRA funds to many renewable energyRead Moreprojec ts. The federal government will as soon as this September be looking for corrupt officials in Massachusetts either active or retired. It's about time the federal government looks into the renewable energy policy in Massachusetts creating second class citizens, creating health problems with state agencies ignoring the health of the citizens. This corruption trial could very well reach down into local boards of health. There is ample opportunity for people to come forward and talk with the federal courts

You are dreaming if you think there is going to be a bribery trial in September. Has anyone beenRead Morein dicted? This process takes years. And any upcoming trial will have nothing to do with wind power or renewable energy, just like the trial just completed did not. That only happens in your fantasy world.

Your dreaming if you think there isn't a second trial ! Why do you think none of the politiciansRead Morewil l comment on the first trial. The federal judge is the one who split the case into two trials. The second trial starts in September. There are already indictments issued. This is the reason for the second trial. There are already 17 additional bribery counts for giving jobs to their supporters, friends, and relatives, crimes that carry up to 10 years in prison for each count. I urge any one who knows anyone in Massachusetts who was give a job or knows anything about bribery to go to the federal courthouse and make your deal now . The second trial information will flow in the next few days. This Sunday the Globe will carry a feature article on the second trial and what powerful politicians are involved http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2013/04/24/probation/z2EzpQvta5FFjHiAurElTP/story.html

If you support fear and racism, and don't think a super-power nation like ours should helpRead Moredesperate children, then vote for Mr. Beaty. The other 98% of voters will support different candidates.

The United States is no longer a super-power. Obama continues to print money and borrow from China. Read MoreThere are children in this country that need help.

Helping desperate children isn't liberal - it's human. To do otherwise would be inexcusable. PutRead Moret he hateful politics aside. We're a superpower nation, so let's act like one.

President Obama's “red line” in Syria became known as the pink line in the sand because Read Morehe refused to back his word. The Syrians crossed the line every time he redrew it. Obama failed to take action in again and again. The Obama administration's handling of the Benghazi consulate attack in Libya was another example his failure to lead our country. How much longer before the people in Falmouth wake up ! Folks the detainee children aren't going back. The parents will be following their children to the Falmouth gate at Otis Base. The burden is going to fall on what's left of the Falmouth budget. Bienvenidos a los Estados Unidos & Falmouth

You are desperate now Frank and flailing. The 225 foot width refers to the channel, not theRead Moreopening in the barrier. Read that report again. The new channel is 225' wide. Plus there is a 100' tug channel alongside. Plenty of room for a 90' beam ship to maneuver. The Discovery is a jack up construction ship and not a transport ship. The Discovery doesn't leave the construction site. The smaller ships that fit through the barrier bring parts to it. The Discovery also could not navigate the channel at Quonset fully loaded because it would draw too much water for the 29' draft there. I hope there are some crows in you backyard, because you are going to be eating a lot of them soon and will need a ready source.

Rhode Island -NORTH KINGSTOWN – "Quonset Development Corporation’s board ofRead Moredirecto rs approved a lease option Tuesday for Cape Wind Associates LLC for property that could be used for staging components for the Massachusetts energy company’s planned 130-turbine wind farm in Nantucket Sound." “If the offshore wind industry develops, we’re on the leading edge,” Steven J. King, managing director of Quonset Development Corporation, told Providence Business News Wednesday. “As the industry unfolds, manufacturing to support the development of these projects could be sited here at Quonset.”

I worked at the Base when the Katrina refugees were there. They were, in some cases, a hugeRead Moreproblem (public drunkeness, drug use, and lewd behavior) for the Base community and the surrounding communities. Hopefully, the refugee children will not cause the some kinds of problems.

The MassDEP measured over 50 decibels of wind turbine noise in the neighborhood. The World HealthRead MoreOr ganization and many other Authorities recommend less than 40 decibels for residential neighborhoods. The state limit for noise is 10 decibels above background ambient sound. In Falmouth the ambient is mostly less than 30 decibels. The noise level from the Falmouth wind turbines is more than twice what the law allows, and the widespread resident noise complaints are more than justified!

Mr. Cool trivializes "CO2 emissions or municipal solvency" as unimportant. He thinks the Read Morereal priority should be his personal crusade against wind energy. But the voters aren't foolish, and will focus on real issues instead of imaginary ones.

"Campaign finance reports filed by Patrick show he has received $500 from Cape Wind principal James Gordon, $500 from Cape Wind vice president Mitchell Jacob of Wellesley, $125 from attorney Tim Caffyn of Mashpee, who works for Cape Wind affiliate Wind Management LLC, and $100 from Christopher Sherman, another Mashpee lawyer who has done work for Cape Wind." http://www.capecodonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20021028/NEWS01/310289991/0/SEARCH

Your logic escapes me. The MIT report clearly finds that in the absence of storage, wind and solarRead Morew ill cost more and little to no carbon is avoided. If John Deutch installed a wind turbine in his home, he did it to reduce his electric bill through NetMetering. - http://www.nreca.coop/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/NetMetering_WhitePaper.pdf - As the paper above explains, NetMetering results in shifting the extra cost of wind and solar to other grid users. - John Deutch might be surprised to learn that his savings come at the expense of his neighbors.

MEE, don't bother arguing with NEE because as he rightly admits, logic escapes him. Ask him toRead Moreexpl ain how much fossil fuel burning the 400GW of installed wind power in the world today replaces and you will see what I mean. His answer will not only defy logic, it will defy common sense.
Frank Messmann July 17, 2014 at 05:47 PM
Nuclear power is the answer. Wind and solar can never meet the needs of 8 billion people.
