    Offshore winds generate power and jobs, study says

    http://hamptonroads.com/2010/0

    Money quote… “Our research revealed that harnessing offshore wind power in Atlantic waters is a much more cost-effective way to generate energy than oil and gas drilling,” said one of the study’s co-authors, Jacqueline Savitz of Oceana, which opposes offshore drilling.

  • Dan Sullivan

    “McDonnell is right to say that the (ABC) plan doesn’t increase taxes, even though it includes new and existing taxes to replace most of the revenue that Virginia would lose by ending its liquor monopoly.” – Norquist (emphasis added)

    And he simply ignores the fact that the plan decreases revenue that in all practicality must be replaced. Maybe states should be allowed deficit spneding too. Kind of follows the path the right wants to go down on reserving powers not enumerated to what will become 5 masters carried by 45 serfs.
