Apparently some of us didn't bother to read the article before commenting... LOL

RRafael “Join us if you'd like to find out how to have FREE energy for 25-30 years after your initial outlay.”

You greenbaggers really need to do this. Buy solar panels and windmills and live on free energy forever. Can’t wait until you learn about maintenance cost and weather repair cost after that 2 year parts and labor warranty runs out... LOL

RRafael “here's a neat little economic factoid for you: solar energy creates MORE jobs per kilowatt hour than coal, oil, or gas. Booya!”

...yeah, more jobs in China. Booya! And when you find out how the cost of labor to repair high tech solar panels compares to the cost of labor to mine coal, you’re in for a real surprise. I don’t want to ruin it for you, though, so just do it. LOL

Who does the D gobernor work for? Nothing to report to the peeps....You people think the goberment is the answer, less is better!

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- More than 50 hours after a chemical leak was first reported in the Elk River, there's still no indication as to when 300,000 Kanawha Valley residents will get drinking water back.

A "do not use" advisory remains in effect for eight counties and part of a ninth. Water can still not be consumed, or used for cooking, cleaning or washing dishes.

A representative for West Virginia American Water, whose customers are affected, did not return requests for comment Saturday morning.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's office also did not respond to requests for comment Saturday morning.

Pear energy? Where is that electricity produced? How exactly do they separate the "green" energy from the fossil fuel produced electric to your home?

rrafael, Don't forget to include the cost of the battery back-up system in your calculations! The "real" ROI is about 25 years! Can't wait to see all the "greenies" installing those solar panels in Wheeling! Greenies=green backs. LOL

Wheeling Water Warriors are concerned about ALL fossil fuels. We are starting a "Go Solar" project in Wheeling. On Tuesday, February 11th, at 7 PM at the Ohio County Library, there will be a presentation by Aaron Sutch of the Mountain Institute on Solar Power. We support the continued move toward green, sustainable energy in the Valley, and are working to promote it here. Join us if you'd like to find out how to have FREE energy for 25-30 years after your initial outlay. And here's a neat little economic factoid for you: solar energy creates MORE jobs per kilowatt hour than coal, oil, or gas. Booya! There will be solar panels installed on my house this summer, and until then I use Pear Energy. Yeah, I'm a hypocrite.

company owners are responsible for their companies.that is the reason for safety meetings.if the epa does things right then the owner will be financially responsible for all clean-up and reimbursements to the people.the taxpayers should not take a hit on this.frequent inspections by the epa could have caught this beforehand****pany owners and the epa need to work together.it's funny that no worker was even trying to stop the leak instead of just letting it run over the containment area.somebody should be fired over this.

wunder, If you can find a post I have EVER made complaining about the subject of the article being changed in the blog! I'll be waiting.....

I'm sure I could find you going into the "unemployment" improving for the last xx months on blogs that the article does not support. From now on let us just report the employment rate to keep the peeps from being confused!

BTW, You are not the blog police!

Well, "daWraith"/"TrollSlayer",

That bullying stuff you depended upon so much is starting to grow very thin.

Do you really think selfishness is the way to success?

Do you really think shouting is the way to talk?

Do you really think you are even remotely superior to all except maybe "Ragnar" and his ilk?

Well golly gee Goober, You's is really somethin'!

Is Nutting sacred???

OINK!

It ain't over until the fat man sings.

How is that "WAR ON WATER" THING GOING FOR YA?

No, you’re hypocrites if you heat your house with gas and power your lights with coal and then complain about the money evil gas and coal companies make from selling gas and coal. It’s so much simpler than you have to make it to rationalize your hypocritical behavior."

Reasonable reply should get a reasonable response.

Wowee, a liberal comment buffet down there - complete with a lack of critical thinking skills entrée, denial of personal hypocrisy a la carte, and the cherry on top... STILL believing Chris Christie is a Republican. LOL!

Hey RR, just to make it clear, wonderwhy is on your side. I know it's hard to tell, but he's one of your "enlightened."

Don't worry, wonder won't think badly of your hypocrisy. He does business with those dirty gas and coal companies, too, and then comes on here to complain about how dirty their products are, just like you do. So you're loons of a feather. LOL

RRafael “are you too blinded by the almighty dollar sign?”

RR, now tell us again about how you still burn that cheap fracked gas and use that cheap dirty coal-fired electricity in your own home to save a few of your own almighty dollars, but it’s ok because you pay a little tithe to a scammer to tell you he put up a windmill somewhere.

THAT’S hypocrisy for you, liberal style. LOL

And your whine “Enlightenment and progress takes time and work, and frankly, we're doing the work” is just a cop-out. Solar and wind are available TODAY if you’re willing to spend the money and REALLY walk the talk. Problem is, you aren’t, because that would cost you too many of your OWN almighty dollars. So you babble your pixie dust here instead, and claim to be green when you aren’t. Yeah, "frankly" you’re a real "serious" enlightened greenbagger alright. LOL

dyin- NO, the NR didn't report it! So, what article did the NR put on for the comments? If anyone that disagrees with you, others get blamed for changing the subject. Unless, of course it's your comments. Get a grip! The majority of this country voted for the President. Both popular and electoral. Overwhelmingly. Birthers, muslims, socialists, Nazis communists, ............yadda. The far right should be glad about this President! The far left wanted single payer, wanted Bush and Cheney to be held accountable for the wars. But no, Obama has helped the right. Wonderwhy you folks don't accept that and acknowledge it?

So RR’s a hypocrite, too? Who knew... LOL

And hey RR, I see you’re another loon who’s not letting this crisis go to waste. All those affected by this spill appreciate your piggybacking your anti-gas campaign on their story. Because your crusade is more important than their little problems, eh? ugh.....

RRafael2- Ditto! Make sure you know that toolboy has several ID's. Creationists! I hope the NR pays them. They sit on here being complete creeps all day, every day. Even Christmas Day! They have the War on Christmas! They do not do what they accuse others. Period. Right wingers, get their info from the Daily Caller and Rush Limbaugh. They worship right wing entertainers. Brainwashed sheeples. Rupert is Proud!
