We have thed most natural resources as oil, gas, coal, shale and we should put them to good use instead of struggling with renewable energy which will take about 100 years. Our country should make certain that the natural resources we have do not pollute the air, but let's develop our own great resources instead of depending on Al Qaeda Saudi Arabia.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has just released their Energy Infrastructure Update report, which shows how much new electric generating capacity was installed for 2012. According to the report, renewable energy sources (biomass, geothermal, solar, hydro, and wind) accounted for 49.10% of all new domestic electrical generating capacity installed in 2012 for a total of 12,956 MW. More than a quarter of that new capacity (25.29%, or 3,276 MW) reportedly came on-line in the month of December 2012 alone and wind led the way in 2012 with 164 new “units” totaling 10,689 MW.

Advocates of renewable energy are likely cheering...
