  • Despite climate threat, U.S. coal finds willing home elsewhere [View news story]
    I do agree with your statements. No sense in very small, incremental changes that whose costs will cause unintended consequences.

  • Despite climate threat, U.S. coal finds willing home elsewhere [View news story]
    Unfortunately, yes. Right now it is cheaper for power plants to covert to burning natural gas then retrofitting old plants to burn coal cleanly. I do not think the US wants to go back to the bad old days before the Nixon administration when the air and water were heavily polluted.

    China is drowning in its own pollution.

  • Blowout jobs number [View news story]
    They predicted 6 million. 30% are young and healthy - not enough IMHO.

    Very good numbers. One caveat, many have dropped out of the workforce. Wannabee retirees who's portfolios have revived and have affordable (or, at least, any) healthcare coverage in hand. Just positive thoughts.

    Doesn't answer the question. Builders complaining of the lack of open lots and experienced labor. Housing prices would be plummeting if there was a great supply, which they are not.

    Is the inventory of new homes growing or decreasing?

    Two older women, one saved $400 a month, the other's husband retired leaving her with no healthcare. i wonder how many seniors do not retire until they can get medicare. Maybe this will actually lead more to retire opening jobs. Has me thinking about an early heave-ho.

    Hmm...we'll have to wait to see whether or not Obamacare will cause the sky to fall. I know a couple working people who opted for the Obamacare rather than the very expensive company plan. Granted, I do live in an area with stiff medical competition.

    So much for the forecast of a big revision of last week's numbers.
