  • Shell CEO backs climate change warnings as well as need to keep drilling [View news story]
    kata, spot on comment.

    Maurice Strong was part of the group with Al Gore and Goldman Sachs that set up the Chicago Climate Exchange, which thankfully failed. He is (or at least was) THE driving force behind the IPCC and their completely flawed studies on climate change.

    Maurice is an avowed Socialist and remains the driving force behind the UN's Agenda 21 program which is nothing more than a wealth redistribution program. This man made gullible warming has been nothing more than a scam since day 1.

    "Peak investment in oil has been reached in late 2014"

    Not even remotely close, and it's clear you are saying that without having any idea of the amount of money that is actually invested in Big Oil vs Fantasy Fuels.

    You got the whacko part right though; I'll give you credit for that.

  • Lumber Liquidators: CARB-Compliant Or Not? [View article]
    Author, I'm still going though this thread and agree with the majority of your comments here, but do disagree with the comment about 'no correlation' between the 2 tests.

    I have a good background in construction and can strip away the outer layers of anything without affecting the core product, so what remains will be a decent indicator of formaldehyde levels. I'm just beginning to go through the test data http://cbsn.ws/1ElmFwZ but so far it appears damning.

    Also, if anything, I would expect any type of heat process (outer layers) to actually remove some of the formaldehyde through dissipation. That said, I am digging to see if I can find any data on the tests done at the factory.

    And for anyone who has this flooring in their home, I know everyone is making a big deal about formaldehyde levels but I have inhaled enough of it that there will be no need for the embalming process when I die; I'm good to go right now. I'm in good health and expect no complications from inhaling probably literally tons of formaldehyde laden dust.

    bjnflicks, again, you are completely out of touch with reality. We're not even remotely close to ditching carbon based energy and you are proposing to do so in 15 to 20 years? With what? Fantasy?

    You need to read the 10-K's of some of these alternative energy companies that clearly state they would not be a going concern if the government were to end or reduce subsidies. That is the 'technology' you want to use to replace carbon based energy?

    bjn - replacing carbon based energy is a pipe dream and nothing more. Any attempt to do would cause a catastrophic world wide depression. We're not even remotely close to replacing carbons.

    BTW, I think the most dangerous enemy of the United States is Liberals.

    by4y, you don't have a clue what the planet's energy needs are, and I mean not one single clue. Here's the best long term outline of the planets energy needs and if you manage to read through the entire article, you'll notice there are no references to magic liberal switches.

  • Left-leaning party sweeps to power in Canada’s oil-rich Alberta [View news story]
    It is a theory. Corporations do not pay taxes and yes, all costs are passed on to consumers.

    Right. I'm telling you a fact that I passed on 100% of all taxes to my customers and never varied from that principal. Other businesses all across America will tell you the exact same thing, yet you have a theory that there are variables as to who pays a tax.

    Again, if you had a business you would understand this. Don't hand me your 'since 2003' crap, I'm not buying that any more than I am buying your 'theory'.

    Neither one of you have a clue based on reality.

    You are living in some Liberal dream world. I passed on all costs to my customers, right down to the cost of the stamps to mail the check in.

    user 18159032, your 'example above' is incorrect.

    user 18159032, you don't have a clue as to what you are talking about. All costs are passed on to the consumer, including taxes. What happens after the tax is imposed is another story.

    See my comment above. It is clear you have never run a business. Stick to the books and theories.

    Outside of actually running a business and having to deal with fact based issues, books and websites are probably a decent source of information. In theory, of course.
