VS2010 – Automated Testing Cookie Management

Cookies

One of the values of automated testing is being able to run a set of tests as part of a suite or load. However, if you have sensibly built in some good protection using MVC anti-forgery or SAML tokens, then there is strong possibility tests can fail due to security functionality disallowing tests run too rapidly.

The Facts Burning coal is a leading source of global warming pollution. “GHG Emissions and Sinks 1990–2006,” US EPA 2008 Burning coal is the dirtiest way we produce electricity. “Carbon Dioxide Emissions from the Generation of Electric Power in the United States,” US DOE 2000.; “GHG Emissions and Sinks 1990-2006,” US EPA 2008 There are no homes in America powered by “clean” coal. IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme CO2 Capture and Storage Database; Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at MIT, CO2 Capture and Storage Project Database CO2 emissions from U.S. coal-based electricity are greater than emissions from all the cars and trucks in America. “GHG Emissions and Sinks 1990-2006,” US EPA 2008 The coal industry is spending millions advertising “clean” coal, but not a single “clean” coal power plant exists in the U.S. today. “Big Coal Campaigning to Keep Its Industry on Candidates’ Minds,” Wall Street Journal, Oct. 20, 2008; IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme CO2 Capture and Storage Database; Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at MIT, CO2 Capture and Storage Project Database “While you might have heard the phrase ‘clean’ coal during the presidential campaign, it’s actually an oxymoron.” Brian Williams, NBC News, Nov 18, 2008 There are roughly 600 coal plants producing electricity in the U.S. Not one of them captures and stores its global warming pollution. “Electricity Facts,” US DOE 2008; IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme CO2 Capture and Storage Database; Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at MIT, CO2 Capture and Storage Project Database “‘Clean’ coal is like a healthy cigarette.” Blan Holman, attorney, Southern Environmental Law Center in Charleson, S.C. There is not a single large-scale demonstration “clean” coal plant in the U.S. today. IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme CO2 Capture and Storage Database; Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at MIT, CO2 Capture and Storage Project Database Virtually all the new coal plants that have been proposed will, just like their predecessors, release 100 percent of the CO2 they produce into the atmosphere, where it will linger—and contribute to global warming. “Coal Power in a Warming World: A Sensible Transition to Cleaner Energy Options,” Union of Concerned Scientists. Oct. 2008. Although carbon sequestration has been the subject of considerable research and analysis, it has yet to be demonstrated in the form of commercial-scale, fully integrated projects at coal-fired power plants. “Coal Power in a Warming World: A Sensible Transition to Cleaner Energy Options,” Union of Concerned Scientists. Oct. 2008. An investment in wind power produces almost three times as many jobs as the same investment in coal power. And an investment in solar power produces almost four times as many jobs, and energy efficiency, almost thirty times as many jobs as coal power. Based on analysis of the new energy economy released by Earth Policy Institute, Nov. 2008 “We don’t have a plant here in the United States today that has commercially installed carbon capture technology.” Joe Lucas, Vice President of Communications, American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE). From: “Can Coal Be Clean? A Debate Between Michael Brune of Rainforest Action Network and Joe Lucas of American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity.” Democracy Now! The War and Peace Report, Oct. 2008 “Without the price on greenhouse gas emissions that is delivered by cap-and-trade mechanisms, CO2 capture and storage will remain a daydream.” Jeroen van der Veer, CEO of Shell. July 2008 Madrid. Shell, “Delivering Energy for Sustainable Growth. The European Perspective,” The 19th World Petroleum Congress Plenary Session, Madrid, June 30, 2008.
