Now we are getting some good comments. What was Al Gore's electric bill? Seems like $2000 0r $3000 a month and he lives in South Carolina or some other warm weather state?
Cats kill little birds. Windmills kill eagles. Eagles eat cats. A surplus of windmills will lead to a shortage of eagles which will lead to a surplus of cats which will lead to a shortage of little birds which will lead to a surplus of insects which will lead to the extinction of the human species. Then there will be no need for windmills or electricity. Dr Seuss could write a great book on this but unfortunately he has passed on.
Do windmills endanger bicyclists or just eagles?
Last cat I saw trying to kill an eagle got eaten. If wind power helps get us off foreign oil, I am for it even if it costs some eagles.
I like to pay taxes on milk and bread so skiers can come to Steamboat at a reduced rate and Intrawest and local businesses can make higher profits. What's not to love?
Science has been working on how to dispose of spent fuel for 30 years. It is all still sitting in pools at the plants. Maybe that is the politicians fault or maybe the scientists fault. I do not know. About 30 years ago I worked at General Iron Works, a subsidiary of Stearns Roger Corp. We were the largest fabricators of Nuclear Fuel Handling Cranes in the Country and had built over 50% of them in the country under license from General Electric. and Westinghouse. While I was there we also built two IF300 Shipping Casks for shipping spent nuclear fuel. They were sent to Japan for moving their spent fuel rods to I do not know where. When a technology can not solve a problem this major in 30 years, I have my doubts about the viability of the technology. There were also a couple of incidents, Three Mile Island, Cherboynl, and a place in Japan I will not even try to spell that have disenchanted me with nuclear. Fort Saint Vrain did not work out too well in Colorado and Washington Public Power Supply in Washington state was a complete disaster while I was there working at Boeing.
Eric Do we have a "proper watchful eye " on the border with Mexico?
"PASSING" on the left usually works well. Nothing is foolproof for people not listening.
Tim What do you do for a living? What do you believe in besides the Federal Government? And most importantly where do you live?
Eric I think that if you have been reading these forums for long you know that I have no love for professional politicians at any level. I also served in the Air Force in 1967 and 1968 and thought it was a very inept and mismanaged organization. However I felt no ill will towards the military and even the high level leaders. You seem to sound very much like the Hippies of the 60's but their system never seemed to work out. I agree that the U.S, will eventually collapse economically and it will be the fault of professional politicians but I expect to be dead before it happens. Good luck to you and any future generations.
