  • Oil spills into Lake Michigan from BP's Whiting refinery [View news story]
    Another reason to reroute the Keystone pipeline. Oil companies talk it; but, they don't walk it or if it is built by man it will screw up. Sooner or later the Keystone pipeline will leak with the potential of contaminating the Ogalla Aquifer. So, reroute the damn thing and then build. After all it is only a conduit to get oil to the Gulf Coast for export. Aint gonna help us!

  • Deal rumor has Plug Power cutting losses [View news story]
    Well I'm not going to say yea or nay.... but, I'll believe it when I see a big green candle on the plug chart! And, if there is something in the wind I would not expect it to be announced until after the bell.

  • FuelCell +17% premarket as FQ1 earnings keep momentum going [View news story]
    also, fuel cells look bubblish. But if I can just ride that bubble to just before it busts or just shortly after it bursts maybe I can convert some of that bubblish expansion into expanding the value of my retirement account.

  • 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!.

  • 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.
