  • Keystone opponents pledge sit-ins if pipeline approved [View news story]
    They are a vocal get in your face voting block - their antics get attention and often get their way. I would love to see groups of
    conservatives being more visible. Boots on the ground make a difference.

  • Shell's planned Pennsylvania ethane plant remains in limbo [View news story]
    Thanks - I kinda thought so. I know of several "abandoned" coal mines that were re opened. I am assuming you are experienced in the field of production. It is my belief, right or wrong : ) that CNX made a great purchase of the Dominion acreage. Do you have an opinion ??

  • EPA backpedals after documents show cutback in 2014 ethanol blend [View news story]
    Ethanol has its place. Get govt and mandates out of the way and let the markets determine the volume and value.

  • Government shutdown could send ag markets into turmoil [View news story]
    The govt. does not need to be involved. There are many other private sources of this info. This number, just like many other "govt forecasts" just add short term volatility.

    These crop forecasts are about as accurate as the hurricane forecasts.
    Its the short term speculative money that trades off this info. I think the lack of this info a good thing.

    Carbon capture, what a ridiculous waste of resources.

  • Chinese demand for coal is cooling [View news story]
    Much of the dirty coal China burns is lignite - brown coal. Very low quality and dirty. I look for lignite to be replaced with a higher quality cleaner burning coal.

  • EPA's new carbon rules hurt coal, could accelerate shift to natural gas [View news story]
    Agreed, that Germany is somewhat unique, but the US is following the same path. Again, it is not scientific fact that CO2 is a pollutant.
    CO2 was made a pollutant in April of 2007, by legal means. In March of 07, CO2 was not a pollutant.

    The theorized link between CO2 and global warming/ climate change is NOT proven - it is a COMPUTER MODEL based on assumptions and variables that are not proving to be true.
    I think its fair to say that "green energy" also has its own political and investor clout.

  • EPA's new carbon rules hurt coal, could accelerate shift to natural gas [View news story]
    I have lived in the shadow of the largest coal fired plant in the US for 30 years. The power company has spent well over a billion dollars upgrading pollution controls. They have spent untold millions fighting lawyers for this claim and that and nothing has ever stuck. Every resource extracted from the earth does environmental damage including the ores and rare earths that go into the construction of solar panels, batteries, and wind mills. The mining of these elements is no worse than coal. The new plants with the proper pollution equipment are comparable to many heavy manufacturing plants.

    Do a search for the latest on green energy in Germany and Spain.
    Not so good news. I do not believe that CO2 is a pollutant. If CO2
    is omitted from the list of pollutants, the new high tech coal plants
    are amazingly "clean" compared to the old plants. I agree with kmi,
    I think we will see a resurgence - at some point, of a new and improved coal plant.

  • Report: Top 50 polluters emit 75% of greenhouse gases [View news story]

    It is also totally implausible for me to accept that climate science can predict such small changes in temperature over decades. The "climate change model" isn't working.
