  • Why Oil Is So High When The World Economy Is So Low [View article]
    I that is a simplistic reply!! XL pipeline was killed by environmental groups as well as questions on the routing. I do not think their position will change regardless of what is done to satisfy their objections.
    This president has no regard for the security of this country I think he will follow previous administrations and continue to use American Troops and taxpayer money around the world to protect our oil supply from people who just don't like us.

    Thanks for your through article on the oil supply and some solutions.
    I think by now you seen enough of NIMBY which results in no oil from Canada,no drilling on public lands not even in large military bases etc which leaves us with no policy and kick the can down the road.
    I do not think you are wasting your time as at some point people will have give up and start to do something about this problem. The alternative is another 2008 moment when the S___t hits the fan

    Maybe you don't like oil from Canada but the facts are rather plain. The other source available for oil is from private land since the environmentalists and the government have made most public land almost impossible as a source for oil. While the oil and gas companies have been very successful using new methods in obtain oil that was not possible in the past it is not growing fast enough to replace all imported oil.
    In regards to replacing oil for transportation with natural gas this is a long term project which is moving forward at a snails pace due to resistance by several sources as well as not getting full support from the Federal Government.

    Changing the tax structure does not mean higher taxes but fairer. There also needs to be a real discussion on limiting the percent of GDP the government will be allowed to spend. This leads to another discussion as what government should be doing, Right now in my opinion various groups have lobby-ed to do jobs which should have been left to the private economy.

    yes .5 billion for Tesla, and on and I am sure glad you as well as many other people love spending other taxpayers money. When private industry tried to develop oil as gas on private land here comes EPA and others no no does fit are plan for wind and solar. You point out one failure if you check the records you will find most of Obama's GREEN ventures have gone down the tubes. Oh well its not his money.

    What happened to private capital developing your schemes

    Mondale flamed out before he got to first base!! I think maybe your followers that want Tesla to succeed should cough up money enough to get their car and the government should write off another bad investment and get out of both the car as well as the battery business.

    Maybe Romney will take the time to read this discourse it would give him some idea's for his campaign. The news media will bury this story until the obituary.

    Yes I do without the government picking winners. No deduction suits me fine. I would think with your experience you can see that two major programs which have added benefits with no visible means of paying for them ie: Social Security and Medicare where being used to get votes.
    Again I think Tesla is a great idea but does not under the governments responsibility. They already have enough problems which they prefer to kick the can down the road on.

    At least Tucker was using private money. Now we have two co's in the electric car business with hat in hand for more taxpayer money to stay alive. Hopefully the election will result in both receiving a dear john note " the government is out of the car business"

    PS Those will take the time to read the material can draw their own conclusion.

  • Discussion With Energy Transfer Partners: Sunoco Acquisition Is Accretive, Distribution Is Secure [View article]
    I agree the infrastructure from all new plays is lacking and is in the process of being built out. EMP,ETP,KMP among other are working this problem as we speak. If Obama and his supporters will get off their backs progress will be much faster.
    Just as a side note a new refinery in S. Dakota to handle oil from the Bakken and Canada (Hyperion) is being held by the same groups in SD supreme court after having state approval.

    John I really appreciate you attempting to handle this subject but you are dealing with people who have a lot of hope for Tesla.
    Tesla's web site says it all

    This what Tesla has on web site

    In my opinion based on forecasts they are just ramping up, 10 cars a week would barely support their overhead in my opinion. In fact they state they are still road testing cars and stating they have 39000 miles in testing. My guess the big three must be laughing during happy hour.
    I think John is correct unless a white knight shows up this will be another Tucker

    It looks to me based on sales on all electric cars to date that this electric car program is another Obama folly.

    Most of comments are valid but there is a problem ! The current administration along with a lot of his followers think the solution is wind and solar. They don't like coal,oil,nucs or even nat gas. While they say support nat gas they have done little to make it happen.
    Unless there is a change in are government there will be no change.

    We need to back research to provide safe nucs We need to implement a policy of conversion from diesel and gas to LNG or CNG. We need to resolve the problems with coal What we don't need is government picking winners and losers using Taxpayer money. If Apple can build a company using new technology from ashes, private industry will solve the future energy problem. Right now there is too much interference and second guessing by government which is stifling risk taking.
