I would like to see magnets used for energy.

they have the ability to create a perpetual motion generator. They never stop going, and need nothing but oppostie polar fields to keep them moving. I have googled this idea, and low and behold there are many companies coming out with magnetic generators. This is the way to go. Every house in America can use these, they don't take a lot of room , and can be built for very little money.

and no one will complain about them killing birds , and blocking their scenic views.

wind farms are just not a good solution at all.

Obama Administration Grants 27 Waivers to Oil Companies since Spill

WASHINGTON — Since the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig exploded April 20, the Obama administration has granted oil and gas companies at least 27 exemptions from doing in-depth environmental studies of oil exploration and production in the Gulf of Mexico.

The waivers were granted despite President Barack Obama’s vow that his administration would launch a “relentless response effort” to stop the leak and prevent more damage to the gulf. One of them was dated Friday — the day after Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said he was temporarily halting offshore drilling

The exemptions, known as “categorical exclusions,” were granted by the Interior Department’s Minerals Management Service (MMS) and included waiving detailed environmental studies for a BP exploration plan to be conducted at a depth of more than 4,000 feet and an Anadarko Petroleum Corp. exploration plan at more 9,000 feet.

“Is there a moratorium on off shore drilling or not?” asked Peter Galvin, conservation director with the Center for Biological Diversity, the environmental group that discovered the administration’s continued approval of the exemptions. “Possibly the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history has occurred and nothing appears to have changed.”

I missed the reason for the explosion. What was the cause of the accident?

The casue of the explosion is probably 5000 feet down on the bottom, they probably havn;t been able to center on that, they are centering on stopping it and clean up.

True enough, G2. IMHO, BP should have had a contingency plan, like using 2 blowout preventers instead of 1, and having one or more dome devices ready. Their lack of planning disgusts me, especially since they told Uncle Sam that they could handle any possible emergencies. We already have tar balls washing up along the northern Gulf coast. I expect nothing but total disaster from this horrible example of offshore deep-water drilling.

We are not the only ones who eat the food grown in the USA, there are many other countries that depend on our grains, and other foods, that are grown here in the USA.

There is also a thing called Mutual economic destruction. That all our economies have been tied together for fear of nuclear war breaking out, it would destroy everyones economy, It was a fail safe to make sure nuclear war did not take place.

That's why Greece is dragging the rest of us down with them. We are all tied together now. So if Rath continues to hope for our demise, rest assured the rest of the free world will suffer even more.

Just as every other country exports food & grains.

AWB was the worlds largest grain's exporter in the world! Until the Iraqi war.

Sadam cut Australian exports to Iraq of lamb, live sheep & wheat & prevented Australian ships from using trade routes to export into other nations in the mid east.

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=839

So you see, ..... my point is ... if you take WAR & AID out of the equation, there would be much less demad for U.S food / exports, just as the case would be for Australia & Europe .... Japan .... China.

ect ect.

Aid is the best weapon of trade, why do you think the GATS agreement went tits up.

Why do you think the WTO is there.

If you say so.....

Talk about up yourself.

I don't see China or Australia, in crisis because of the troubles in Greece or the USA.

Yes .... you are right that we are all linked in some way.

But some nations are less linked then others & some nations wont be effected no matter what happenes.

Dow Jones falls 1,000 points Thursday

Now just imagine what would really happen, if the rest of the world decided the U.S regulations are to tough now & the new u.s tax system no longer favours big business.

Then many companys like News corparation ........ ect ect would move their courprate HQ to another country.

& take their wealth, & jobs with em.

rath, the rig that sank, causing the leak, was in place for over 2 years. Also, Alaska has been producing huge amounts of oil since the 1960's.

The dome failed because of 'ice-like crystals' on the ocean floor. BP now has no backup plan other than sinking a relief well.

Please note that BP is NOT an American oil company; Tenneco, Shell, ExxonMobil and others have had no problems, and have been operating in the Gulf of Mexico since the 1950's.

The current estimation is over 72,000 barrels of crude oil spilled, with as much as 1,500 barrels leaking per day.
