Wind turbines may catch on fire ten times more often than is publicly reported, putting nearby properties at risk and casting doubt on their green credentials, researchers have warned. [Snip] An average of 11.7 such fires are reported globally each year, by media, campaign groups and other publicly-available sources, but this is likely to represent just the “tip of the iceberg”. There could in fact be 117 turbine fires each year, it argues, based on analysis showing just 10pc of all wind farm accidents are typically reported. Fires tend to be “catastrophic”, leading to turbines worth more than £2 million

Michael Watson walked the press and McDaniel supporters at the press conference through how they have serious concerns with the election review process in Mississippi. “We’ve heard it our entire lives in Mississippi,”

Fidell, who teaches military law at Yale, said that he’s been tasked with leading Bergdahl’s legal team as the Army investigates the circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance from his Afghan outpost and his capture by the Taliban in 2009. Military sources previously told ABC News Bergdahl may have simply walked off the Army base of his own

Wednesday, Gov. Deval Patrick (D-MA) told local reporters he was looking into ways to help the Obama administration deal with the ten of thousands of illegal immigrant children flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border. He said “My inclination is to remember what happened when a ship full of Jewish children tried to come to the United States in 1939 and the United States turned them away, and many of them went to their deaths in Nazi concentration camps.” Patrick discussed the political debate about deportation or allowing the children to stay and said, “I think we are a bigger-hearted people than that as

Democratic donors are outspending Republicans by more than 50% in the closest-fought Senate races, according to a Guardian analysis of the latest campaign finance disclosures that reveal a surge of money flooding into key battleground states. More than $42m has been raised so far this year by Democratic campaigns in just 10 states that are seen as crucial in determining whether the party holds on to control of the Senate in November´s midterm elections. And although a number of more liberal senators are currently pushing for a constitutional amendment that would somewhat curb the growing dominance of money over US politics, disclosures

RUSH: The government wants to establish talking shopping carts so that food stamp recipients will be directed to healthier foods in the grocery store. And if they end up buying the government-approved amount of healthy foods, they could win free movie tickets. I kid you not. They want to install talking shopping carts in grocery stores for food stamp users. (interruption) Well, Michelle´s voice would probably be a good idea. I don´t know whose voice, but it probably would be Moochelle´s voice. In fact, it´s a USDA suggestion. "The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is suggesting major changes to grocery stores."

"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue." —Barry Goldwater The 50th anniversary of Barry Goldwater´s clarion call for liberty acceptance speech for the Republican nomination passed this week. In a modern world where politicians talk, but their words are hollow, listening to Goldwater´s message a half a century later is like a drink of fresh water. But the words were no less scary to politicians less than a year from President Kennedy´s assassination. The establishment Republicans, then known as Rockefeller Republicans, played the same

President Obama told his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Wednesday that he ´must halt the flow of weapons and fighters´ into Ukraine as the U.S. imposed tough new sanctions on Moscow. The tough action, in the form of new sanctions on Russia´s lucrative energy and defense companies as well as a handful of Russian banks, was announced by Obama in a half-empty White House press briefing room on Wednesday.

RUSH: Last night on CNN, Joe Johns, the correspondent, had a report about me and my criticism of Eric Holder. Now, that´s not what I´m surprised about. What I´m surprised about is it took so long -- his report basically says establishment Republicans are worried about Sarah Palin and me, because we´re too partisan, and they are worried that we are scaring off potential Republican voters and potential Republican donors.

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

Sarah Palin is right about impeaching President Barack Obama. No, not that the president should be impeached. But Palin is correct in arguing that, for those who assert that Obama has grievously abused his executive authority, impeachment is the proper course of action.

WASHINGTON — President Obama said on Wednesday that he believed the United States had “a credible way forward” in its nuclear negotiations with Iran, and strongly suggested that after consultations with Congress, which has been threatening additional sanctions, he would seek an extension of the talks beyond Sunday’s deadline. “There are still some significant gaps between the international community and Iran,” he said in the White House press room, before announcing additional sanctions on Russia, “and we have more work to do.” Iran has already signaled that it wants more time to negotiate, but Mr. Obama is almost certain to

Wednesday on MSNBC´s "All In," Robert Reich, President Bill Clinton’s former Secretary of Labor, said American drug users are responsible for the "drug war" policy which is causing the violent chaos in the illegal immigrant children´s home countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras therefore the unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border should all be declared "drug war refugees." Reich said, "We are implicated in a variety of ways. We are the customers.

Immigration: To stem illegal border crossings, the government once made it harder and costlier to wire cash back home. This administration makes it easier and cheaper. ´People should not have to resort to mailing cash in an envelope or delivering money in person," argued Obama´s consumer credit cop, Richard Cordray, in a recent speech to a Latino immigrant-rights group. So among other things, he´s putting an end to "hidden fees" that he says banks charge immigrants to wire funds. "Consumers sending $200 from here to El Salvador might find they pay anywhere from $8 to $33," the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau chief whined. But

Rep. Tom Rice (R., S.C.) and constitutional law expert David Rivkin on Wednesday predicted victory in the lawsuit the House is launching against President Barack Obama. The House Rules Committee held a hearing on the proposed lawsuit, which is intended to prove the unconstitutionality of Obama’s unilateral delay of the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act. Witnesses at the hearing argued about whether the House has standing to sue the president to enforce the law. “I’m very optimistic that this lawsuit will succeed,” Rivkin said in an interview. “I certainly expect there to be a propaganda offensive to

With House Republicans exploring lawmakers´ immigration “wish lists” as they craft a legislative response to the border crisis, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is drawing a line in the sand: unless the bill prevents President Obama from expanding unilateral amnesty for so-called DREAMers, he will oppose it. “No legislation should be considered unless it specifically prohibits Obama from expanding” the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), “which allows those who have come here illegally to stay,” Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told Breitbart News. “That should be a prerequisite for any bill considered to address this crisis.” Frazier also told Breitbart News

A SET of mysterious, 5,000-year-old rock carvings could see the light of day again, after being buried 50 years ago to protect them from vandals. The Cochno Stone in West Dunbartonshire bears what is considered to be the finest example of Bronze Age “cup and ring” carvings in Europe. The stone, which measures 42ft by 26ft, was discovered by the Rev James Harvey in 1887 on farmland near what is now the Faifley housing estate on the edge of Clydebank. It is covered in about 90 carved indentations, or “cups”, and grooved spirals, along with a ringed cross and

Former President George W. Bush was supposed to give a speech to Ameriprise Financial conference in Boston next week but had to bow out because he’s recovering from surgery on a bum knee. But the finance services firm was able to secure a prominent substitute speaker: Hillary Clinton. Clinton’s speech, confirmed by two sources familiar with the event, is the latest in a series of paid speaking-circuit gigs for the former secretary of State and likely 2016 contender, who charges upwards of $200,000 to deliver remarks or take part in question-and-answer sessions.

DENTON, Texas — The council governing a North Texas city that sits atop a large natural gas reserve rejected a bid early Wednesday that would have made it the first city in the state to ban further permitting of hydraulic fracturing in the community. Denton City Council members voted down the petition 5-2 after eight hours of public testimony, sending the proposal to a public ballot in November. Fracking involves blasting a mix of water, sand and chemicals deep into underground rock formations to release trapped oil and gas. While the method has long stirred concerns about its effects on

The Environmental Protection Agency bowed to fierce criticism Wednesday and announced that it had hit the breaks on a fast-tracked plan to collect fines by garnishing paychecks of accused polluters. The agency, which has come under withering attacks from Republican lawmakers for attempting a “power grab,” said it still intended to pursue the new authority to garnish wages without a court order. But now it will follow a more typical and longer review process. Opponents of the wage-garnish rule applauded EPA’s decision. “It’s about time this abuse-prone agency listened to Congress and backtrack on a rule that was clearly an

While much of the focus in the illegal immigrant surge has been on border security, the federal government does a poor job of ensuring relatives who claim children who enter the U.S. illegally are giving them the care they need, according to internal audits that suggest problems remain despite years of warnings. The Obama administration says its priority is to make sure the children get a fair hearing and protections to which they are entitled — but the recent surge has so overwhelmed officials that they are cutting corners in background checks, meaning some children are turned over to parents
