  • Exxon Mobil Corporation Overvalued, Dividend Not Sustainable [View article]
    People that do not understand the oil patch should not write articles about it. I like to tell people that are looking for negative points about oil to look around the room they are in, then take away the things that are petroleum products. Also look the same way at your electric car, the drug store, the hospital, the supermarket and onward. I hope you can survive without airconditioning. Oh, do you like TV. LED lights function pretty well don't they. Look close at them.

    When the supply diminishes the price will rise. I like oil.

  • Should Investors Bet On Exxon Mobil In The Prevailing Oil Scenario? [View article]

    I am second generation XOM and am looking forward to the future. Even as petroleum begins to be replaced as fuel far into the future, petroleum will be valuable then and even more valuable as time goes by and supply's dwindle. Organic chemistry has made us heavily dependent on petroleum. The uses are mind boggling. I wish I could be here for the third generation.

  • Who's taking Wal-Mart's U.S. market share? [View news story]
    The public needs to do some comparison shopping to learn that on many essential items like T-P and paper towels their prices are are consistently higher than our regular supermarkets. And other things. I thought electronic accessories like cables were very high.

    Their marketing people bite you on the small stuff.

    I go there for a very few things I cannot get elsewhere.

  • Putin praises Exxon as Arctic drilling starts [View news story]
    I believe in oil like user does and I guess I am an optimist because I believe there will eventually be alternatives. Just do not get your hopes up for a quick demise of petroleum like it is evil because it has much value beyond motor fuel. Besides energy it is a source for thousands of chemicals and products.

    Electrict cars will happen but not by leaps and bounds but rather by millimeters and microns. Business progress will happen without government as it becomes financially sound investment. Throwing government money at a project will not make it work if the technology is not practical.

    Presently piston engines move huge amounts of material in a very practical manner with hydrocarbons. You cannot change the physics of it all. Politics cannot replace physics, it's that simple. However you can win elections talking about it, but it is just so much hot wind.

  • Swap out Exxon for ConocoPhillips, Imperial Oil or Suncor, Barclays says [View news story]
    I sometimes am amazed by the comments of people writing for various financial newsletters. I am trying to learn from what I read in their publications and when they do not understand the operation of a company like XOM I realize a person could easily make a mistake following their information. I question their goals. I guess very short time.

  • Exxon Mobil May Be Exceedingly Mobile [View article]
    I really like living in an oil boom. I grew up in the oil patch and never thought we would see this again. I think we should all embrace it while it lasts. When it goes away we will be forced to substitute with less energy. In the future it is unlikely humans will enjoy the luxury we do today from very powerful piston engines. I see this as an exciting time. Just look around you at the quality of the vehicles brought to you by capaitalism, science and oil.

  • Why This Oil Giant Is Tried And True [View article]
    I am long in petroleum and it is the main thing that seems to keep expanding. There is a finite amount on earth and even Model T days there was concern about running out and concern for a substitute. Today there are studies that support that our use of petroleum will go much farther than the human struggle we bear today. Humanity will adjust, invent, explore and do everything possible to survive and prosper.
    The answer may not be in a substitute for oil but a different attitude about living. For now the piston engine is like a drug we cannot stop using. It is the answer to many needs. I have observed that corn farmers have changed the number of passes over their fields with new methods to save fuel. As petroleum supplies diminish the cost goes up and we conserve more. It is happening right in front of us every day and it has nothing to do with politics.
    In the mean time I really like using the stuff to stay warm or cool and well fed. We need to appreciate it more and it will pay us more dividends for a long time.

  • Exxon's Tillerson appears with Rosneft's Sechin at Moscow energy summit [View news story]
    Anyone would think that a country like ours that uses around 20 million bls of crude every day would have a great energy policy. Think about the magnitude of losing 5% or only 1 million per day where all of our industry depends on it. Where is our common sense?

  • EPA's McCarthy says significant changes possible in carbon plan [View news story]
    If the EPA had basic high school chemistry they should realize that CO2 is produced by life in a constant cycle of life with plants needing it to survive and emit oxygen for animals. It seems so obvious to me. I know so many good science teachers that are democrats, could not some of them been recruited as consultants in these cases? It should not require a PHD biologist to figure this out.

  • ConocoPhillips: 20% Of The Stock Price Is Tied To Canada [View article]
    I grew up in the oil patch and it is the only place I have ever felt secure. I also never imagined we would ever be so energy secure ever again. If only every one could appreciate the positive effect petroleum has had on our lives in terms of food production, comfort, medicine, entertainment, almost everything. Without it we would be working a lot harder. It sometimes seems as if when we are almost down and out the chemist and engineers find another way to provide.
    Pollution problems are being solved as man learns. Please note this, what would substitute for that vast amount of energy. In 200 years our decendents are going to have to find a new source.
    Now I am enjoying this one.

  • Think tank says investors should weigh risks of big high-carbon projects [View news story]
    Our planet is always changing.

    I really was trying to make the point that we are worlds away from abandoning carbon based fuels and 200,000 other products from our lives. Right now our lives are more comfortable and less expensive because of hydrocarbons. Yes, eventually they will be used up and humanity will survive without them, and the survivors will be living very differently. That is expected to be about 200 years from now. The changes will come because of capital investment as the landscape changes.

  • Think tank says investors should weigh risks of big high-carbon projects [View news story]
    I am having trouble understanding how we can clean our air any more when every job we send to china increases pollution there. And that situation is not improving. We are on the same planet.
    Do greenies drive electrict cars fueled only by wind and solar. Are their SUV's solar powered. Do their farm tractors and combines have electrict motors.
    The Amish farm with horses and mules and I have watched them harvest corn by hand. But when they want to get some real work done like loading a silo they use a gas engine. I have not seen them shipping out huge truck loads of grain either.
    Do greenies think of the mathematical difference between mule power and Diesel engine tractors. Why did we have the industrial revolution? Do we want to go backwards and all move back to the farm and drive mules to eke out a bare existence?
    From where you are sitting right now count the materials that come from oil and coal, then count the things that do not have a connection to oil or coal. If you don't understand this concept, read up on organic chemistry.

  • Exxon: Future climate rules won't curb fossil fuel investments [View news story]
    The defense of common sense rarely accounts for the fact that hydrocarbons supply the source for all of our life saving supplies in medicine, food production and virtually every thing in sight. Sit in a room in any home in the Western Hemisphere and you cannot see an item that is not sourced from hydrocarbons. Your inorganic products (rocks) were cut, broken and/or polished with petroleum energy. Go, try to get along with it. Back in 73 and 79 we had terrible inflation because the Arabs decided to punish us.
