  • Congress to hold hearings on LNG exports [View news story]
    It did look at one time like nat gas would transition us off of oil dependence, but it currently looks like hybrids and electrics will skip nat gas entirely. There still may be a future for nat gas in commercial transport.

    Thing about oil consumption in US is some 70% is transportation so every time someone buys an electric or hybrid we reduce our oil dependence. Electrics are typically fueled from the grid which is moving rapidly to gas and is generally powered by cheap fuels - including, yes, coal. This is good because cheap energy is good for economic productivity and growth.

    The cost of the 2nd Iraq war alone would have enabled our energy independence, let alone the frequent and repeated international incursions and efforts we constantly engage in.

  • Tesla Motors draws criticism in Germany [View news story]
    My understanding is that only Tesla vehicles are allowed access to the US supercharger network, how would this be different.

    No one is debating whether exports will raise the price of NG: the question centers on whether the increased economic activity resulting from increasing gas extraction is worth the raise in all Americans' expenses resulting from higher energy prices.

  • Putin addresses lawmakers, annexes Crimea [View news story]
    Seriously, the bogey man mainstream media progressive conspiracy that is out to 'get you' doesn't exist.

    Did I discuss Syria at all? That's all you sir. And by the way, calling out Obama on inaction in Ukraine is the most asinine thing his haters have yet done. If it weren't for Bush squandering global goodwill on his Cowboy 'Shoot First' Bush Doctrine the US might be relevant as a 'Protector of Democracy and Defender of Freedom' but those days are long, LONG gone.

    And you can choose to paint me as a 'lib', progressive, dem whatever you want. But you'd be wrong. That's the rhetoric of the wingnuts who can't make valid arguments and instead apply labels in the erroneous thinking by using labels their position is somehow enhanced. Well, news flash: it isn't.

    By the way: being mainstream isn't a bad thing. It means you pretty much are in the center along with most other people around you. If you think the 'mainstream' are the bad guys, here's another news flash: that makes you the minority opinion.

    McCain's assessment of Putin and Russia was actually spot on. But even he isn't a war raving lunatic looking for any excuse to pick a fight with anyone and everyone like the commenters on this market current.

    I don't agree with a thing you say, it's pretty amazing.

    So Obama should have proven his manhood was bigger than Putin's at the cost of US blood, money, and political capital? Wow. Just.... Wow.

    As bbro said, "it's an economy the size of Kentucky" - so its impact on the world isn't significant enough to move needles much.

    Can anyone state why, exactly, the US cares about Crimea besides a few energy deals in the region? This seems like it's the right outcome for everyone involved.

  • Libyan militia thwarted in attempt to sell crude to North Korea [View news story]
    smith, let me adjust some of that:

    European interests jumped in when the revolutionaries offered lucrative trade deals for help eliminating Ghaddafi, which have yet to be fully realized. The US was then pressured by the Euros to help, since we spent years killing their boys in our Iraq they decided it was time for some quid pro quo, so we went in there to help Euros promote European energy interests and basically rip off the billions of dollars of Ghaddafi's assets.

    The US subsequently pulled out since it doesnt have all that many interests there to defend but the Euros still give a damn, so moving forward we can expect the Euros (mostly Italy and France) to aggressively defend their energy interests there.

  • BlackBerry sells U.S. HQ [View news story]
    Why would BBRY get into landlording when it isn't their business? That makes no sense. Plus they'd have to put up with vacancy and credit losses on that 63%, reducing the potential return. Far better to let a pro do it with the connections and infrastructure to manage the property and the willingness to take credit risk on tenants.
