    Obama Focuses on Wind Energy in Iowa Trip

    Obama Focuses on Wind Energy in Iowa Trip - WSJ.com

    I think Romney should come out in say that he supports all forms of energy. He doesn't want to go against wind power or he might lose a large part of the Midwest. :eusa_boohoo: Wind power in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Romney should support the same advantages from coal to wind. All forms of energy are needed in telling tens of thousands of workers that I'm not going to support you. well, isn't a good way to gain support.

    As of 31 March 2012 (2012 -03-31)[update], the top five states with the most wind capacity installed are:[16][9][17]

    Texas (10,648 MW)
    Iowa (4,419 MW)

    [Wind Energy, light energy, clean vehicles....... All the same load of horse cr@p.
    If Obama had started out as a venture capitalist he would have ended up standing on the exit 48 offramp of the Merritt holding a sign reading 'Will work For Food". Instead he's made his career choice in promising people that if they "Vote for me and I will steal from he to give to thee". Based on Mr Obama's career success up till this moment, when PT Barnum uttered his famous "There's one born every minute" statement, Mr Barnum was actually grievously understating the situation]

    "Fisker Automotive can't seem to catch break -- because its Karma hybrid EV sedan has yet again become too hot. Similar to an incident last spring that left a model burnt to near smithereens and damaged its owner's house, the Karma above caught fire in a Woodside, CA parking lot while powered off. Jalopnik was the first to get word of the incident, noting that the damage remained reserved to the front left of the vehicle, near where an exhaust is located. As the story goes, the owner found the vehicle emitting smoke after returning from a grocery run, prompting a call to Fisker and then the local fire department, which arrived as it was already engulfed in flames. In a statement to Wired's Autopia, Fisker has been vehement to note that the damage appears to be far from where the car's battery and sensitive electrical components are located, and that it wasn't plugged in for a charge -- furthermore, it's already had correspondence with the owner and is actively investigating the matter with plans to issue an update when there are findings to share."
