  • Keystone approval could be "light bulb moment" for investing in Canada [View news story]
    I have always said reroute it away from the Aquifer and then build it. My question here is; why should we the US put our environment at risk to the benefit of Canadian energy companies. It has been documented quite heavily that the oil isn't coming to benefit the US consumer but is headed to the Gulf for export to higher paying/profit markets.

  • Plug Power +30%, CEO says major deal expected in two to three weeks [View news story]
    I have watched and I do mean just watched fuel cells for a long time. This may not be the right time or the right company (Plug); but, if the nay sayers live long enough they will see fuel cells in common use in cars. With increasing efficiency in solar cells I wouild not be surprised to see solar powered cars too. The thing that makes me wonder about battery/electric vehicles is; somewhere there is a fossil fuel being burned to generate the electricity to charge that battery. There may be some efficiencies with fuel cells generating the electricity at the point of use and there by no transmission losses etc.

  • 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!.
