The first offshore wind farm in the United States started producing clean energy in mid-December. Located 13 miles from the coast of Rhode Island, the five turbines will power 17,000 homes, including all the energy necessary to sustain the nearby Block Island. The wind energy industry is the fastest-growing job sector in the country. Despite their popularity in Europe, however, coastal turbines have faced resistance in the U.S. “We have a huge, clean energy resource off of our coast, and to date we have not tapped into it,” Deepwater Wind CEO Jeff Grybowski told VICE News correspondent Arielle Duhaime-Ross.

Port Fourchon, Louisiana is a mega oil port, located at Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, on the Gulf of Mexico. It is a sea port, with significant petroleum industry traffic from offshore Gulf oil platforms and drilling rigs as well as the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port pipeline. Fourchon services deepwater oil and gas exploration, drilling, and production in the Gulf of Mexico. Port Fourchon services over 90% of the Gulf of Mexico's oil production. There are over 600 oil platforms within a 40-mile radius of Port Fourchon. This area furnishes 16 to 18 percent of the US oil supply. This port is amazing by any standards.

Since the end of the Cold War, the United States has expanded its security commitments and tried to bring as many states as possible into a U.S.-led liberal world order. That strategy—sometimes dubbed “liberal hegemony”—has repeatedly failed. The United States should return to its earlier strategy of “offshore balancing” and focus on three key regions: Europe, Northeast Asia, and the Persian Gulf. If a potential hegemon emerges, Washington should commit resources to preserve a favorable balance of power and if necessary fight to uphold it. If no potential hegemon is present, however, the United States should remain offshore and let local powers handle regional security problems themselves. This approach would reduce U.S. defense burdens, mitigate the terrorism problem, and discourage WMD p...
After a year of operation, it's clear that the fishing community and offshore wind near Block Island are thriving together. Each offshore wind turbine supports giant shellfish communities, which creates a healthy marine ecosystem. America’s first offshore project, the Block Island Wind Farm, was completed in late 2016. Block Island residents, including fishermen, have been pleased with the results. Electricity rates are down, tourism is up, and the island has access to high speed internet for the first time because of the project. The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) and the Special Initiative on Offshore Wind (SIOW), based at the University of Delaware, released this video that features never-before-seen underwater footage of fish feeding at America’s first offshore wind farm, a...

American hedge fund billionaire George Soros is back in the headlines for two things: his most recent funding projects and new revelations that the shadowy political donor has been hiding his fortune from US regulators with Mossack Fonseca, the firm behind the Panama Papers leak.

In the U.S. today, wind power accounts for about five percent of all electricity generation, but a new project aims to change that. A $300 million installation off the coast of Block Island, Rhode Island, takes the renewable energy technology out to sea. Gov. Gina Raimondo anticipates the project is the beginning of a new industry, but some locals are skeptical. Mike Taibbi reports.

The IRS will allow a Nevada Trust to be treated as a tax free "offshore foreign trust". Nevada allow any Nevada company to act as private family trustee (as long as the company does not solicit trust business). Annual fees are substantially less than South Dakota or Delaware.
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Professor Habib Dagher is building the first offshore wind farm in North America that will float off the coast of Maine - a state that some consider to be the Saudi Arabia of wind power. Test models have performed well in the laboratory, but the farm's real turbines will need to stand up to the region's bleak weather. If they do work, experts believe that they can generate enough electricity to power the US four times over. Critics, however, worry that the cost of such a development will be passed on to consumers, as the US has no formal energy policy. Al Jazeera's John Terrett reports from Maine. Reaching more than 270 million households in over 140 countries across the globe, our viewers trust Al Jazeera English to keep them i...
