    I Love how they threw this in at the very end… – Increase a federal loan guarantee for Developing an Alaska natural gas pipeline; establish a regional joint OCS lease and permit processing office for Alaska; and Allow oil and gas Leasing in specified areas of the Gulf of Mexico that are beyond 45 statute miles (current law limits such activity to areas beyond 125 miles) off the coastline of Florida. -

    This bill is still a energy fiasco. First it mandates energy providers to purchase increasing amounts of so called renewable energy no matter how costly or inefficient it is. In the EU they found that wind nor solar didn’t really curb emissions and per-capita they still exceed US emissions regardless of their renewable installments and cap and trade schemes. So the costs just get passed on to the consumer. It doesn’t alleviate the importation of oil nor curb the alleged temp effects of CO2 emissions 0.1%. It’s stupid.

    It will also add to transmissions costs as renewables can’t usually be put close to where power is needed and the unites are spread out more so they occupy more land. And it requires much more overcapacity to get the same energy replaced for a given coal or nuclear plants On top of that the energy is intermittent and must be backed up with regular fossil or nuclear power.

    So you see this bill is mostly to appeases the wacko enviros who don’t understand energy issues.
