  • FuelCell +17% premarket as FQ1 earnings keep momentum going [View news story]
    I think the movement in Energy cells is similar to railroads.... Oh please explain. Some time last century a railroad company put into service a sleek and pretty diesel electric locomotive. It became the thing even though the old ugly steam engine could pull a bigger load and faster than the new diesel electrics.

    I have always heard that electricity was a very inefficient form of energy. I believe it was due mostly to energy losses in transmission. Somebody please tell me how much carbon is released in generating and delivering the electricity vs carbon is released to get the hydrogen to drive a similar vehicle 100 miles.

    But we all know that fad status will trump economic data.

  • Shell says Ho-Ho pipeline in Texas shut after accident causes leak [View news story]
    All they have to do is move it away from the Ogallala aquifer so that when it does leak it doesn't trash the water supply for a couple million people. Railroad tank cars do crash and spill but the capacity for a massive spill is less with tank cars. Plus, the exact location of the spill is pretty much immediately known!.

    and the revival of the auto industry that every one thought we should have abandoned and let sink has had nothing to do with it?

  • Union appeals Tennessee VW plant vote to U.S. labor board [View news story]
    All I have to say to nay sayers is; If the shoe were on the other foot, you would be crying like babies. A fair election does not consist of threats regardless of which side is making them. I would not be surprised if the courts rule in favor of the Union and call for another election. I would hope that everyone would stop with the threats and let the majority decide based on the merits of the proposal. I think the Union would lose again. But, I also think it would only be fair vote again. And if the Union had pulled the same crap, it would only be fair to hold another election. Yes a "do over".

  • Exxon CEO joins lawsuit against tower that would provide water for fracking [View news story]
    Not wanting to defend him or anyone else; but, it may very well be that he is opposed to the tower due to property values as stated. That having been said. If Exxon wanted to put a water tower in my back yard for fracking purposes, Mr Tillerson would not give a rats rump! And, might even say bad things about lme!

  • The polar vortex is a perfect storm for railroad stocks, J.P. Morgan says [View news story]
    Not wanting to disagree with anyone; but, a turnaround is possible. I think coal fired generation is held as backup for heavy demand situations. With the really cold weather the last two months those coal fired backup generators may be in heavy use. My personal electric bill doubled in, use Dec/pay Jan; and, it was up 50% for Jan/feb.

    I don't know if your comment was tic or not ; but, as of 2012, 36% of US electricity was generated by coal.

    Corker would have been better off to have kept his mouth shut! If the Union should win a do over, the result may not be the same.

  • Tesoro prevents federal safety agency from entering refinery [View news story]
    If they didn't have anything to hide, they would open the doors. And, if they don't have anything to hide, TSO's actions sure look suspicious.

  • Summers: U.S. risks becoming a Downton Abbey economy [View news story]
    The higher incomes should pay more. I would just love to be in the max tax bracket! Even at 50%. The way I see it; it just like seats at the ball game. Good seats cost more. If you are seating in the good seats in the US economy, it's going to cost you more. But, you say it penalizes hard work. Well just how freaking hard did the heirs to the Walmart fortune have to work?
