This is the first contract to meet a goal set by Massachusetts lawmakers in 2016 to build 1.6 gigawatts of offshore wind power by 2027. Vineyard Wind expects to have the wind farm operational and selling power to Massachusetts utilities by 2021.

Also on Wednesday, Rhode Island announced it would award a 400-megawatt offshore wind project to Deepwater Wind.

Meanwhile, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's office announced Tuesday that the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy is looking to craft a strategic plan to make Virginia an offshore wind energy hub.

“Virginia should be the prime location for the offshore wind industry, from the supply chain to the full build-out of our offshore wind assets off the coast," said Northam.

Yeah, not surprised.....just kinda upset that society has gotten to this point. The only way I view this is this is their last fight and they are pulling out all the punches as they go down.

It's really weird to observe the people leading our country causing havoc on its society just for profit.

Pruitt is just one man and will die one day, leaving all his wealth here, but his decisions are affecting us now and in the future.

Same with Trump - it's all just a show so he can survive a little longer.

Imagine how much more advanced our species could be if our heads were all a little more in line with the right sensibilities....

Now back to your regularly scheduled articles

This is evidence that a "natural gas" bridge will not work and that businesses are already losing money due to the transition to renewable energy.

Today, the company is announcing a new milestone: Since 2015, it has installed a worldwide total of a gigawatt-hour of energy storage–technology that is critical for using renewable energy at scale. For comparison, that’s nearly half of the entire amount of energy storage installed globally last year.

Through my research over the years, I've read about this multiple times. If we are not proactive, this will happen. I think I've even posted some articles over the years warning about this, but another study has come out. This is the second article I've seen write about it:

“We have plans in Colorado…that will have us at a 60 percent carbon reduction and 55 percent renewable energy by 2026,” he said, adding, “at no incremental cost.”

At Xcel Energy’s Midwest utilities, “we think we can achieve even more sensational carbon reduction goals,” Fowke said. “We'd like to talk about carbon-free energy by 2030 at 85 percent.”

“I will tell you, it's not a matter of if we're going to retire our coal fleet in this nation, it's just a matter of when,” Fowke said.

Another example showing the coal industry is dead. No more. We are moving on. Trump is wrong. He's living in the past. He's manipulating the uneducated.

shuttering the Karn coal-fired power plant in 2023, eliminating coal use and more than tripling renewable energy utilization in just over a decade.

"In-depth modeling analysis showed higher levels of energy efficiency and demand management programs and renewable energy are the best and most affordable way to meet customers' needs in the future," the utility said in a statement Wednesday.

FALSE. Renewable energy strengthens our national security by not having to rely AT ALL on any other nation because you know, the Sun's energy is EVERYWHERE......

I was skimming youtube and found this video. I didn't realize Craig Ferguson and his wife had a special called 'Couple Thinkers'. In this episode, they talk with Neil deGrasse Tyson.

One of the things Neil harps on is educating those who do not understand what is going on so they can make better decisions that improve their life.

That's the reason I created this thread, to inform those who might not know and hopefully they will spread the knowledge once it's figured out.

The conversation gets pretty deep even though it's surrounded by comedy.

To me, Neil is a very inspiring person. Check it out.
