  • Uranium spikes as Cameco shuts world's largest producing mine [View news story]
    This is why I like investing in natural resource production - its really fairly predictable. Supply and demand rule. Ride the cyclical wave.

  • Chamber study predicts Obama's "war on coal" will kill jobs [View news story]
    China burns a good deal of very low grade coal. They have almost zero pollution control. There is no comparison between US coal plants and China's coal plants. The coal plant a few miles from my home burns over 100 rail cars/ day - the largest in the country. They do a tremendous job of removing pollutants. The area around the plant has a 3500 acre lake that is open to the public for fishing, sailing, camping etc. It also has several thousand acres of WMA land for hunting. I have been a regular for close to 30 years. There is not an industrial process, including the manufacturing of solar panels, that does not create environmental hazards.
    Coal can be burned cleanly.

  • Supreme Court ruling will force power plants to cut downwind pollution [View news story]
    The key word is "emissions". I live in the shadow of the biggest coal fired plant in the US. The power plant has spent hundreds of millions over the last 10+- years to greatly reduce particulates, heavy metals, and noxious gases. EPA stays on their butt and they are constantly monitored. All is well. The problem arises when CO2 is included in the emissions.

  • Exxon: Future climate rules won't curb fossil fuel investments [View news story]
    I would be happy if existing pollution controls are continued and in some cases
    strengthened, if the supreme court would take CO2 of the list of pollutants.

  • Barron's sees downside for Plum Creek Timber [View news story]
    Demand for timber is quite robust in the Southeast. Stumpage prices are rising rather dramatically. If the harvest is large enough, PCL should have a great 2014.

  • King Coal Takes Another Blow To The Head [View article]
    When mines are closed, I tend to think that the existing production
    becomes more valuable. If production drops too quickly, prices will spike.

  • Lowering unemployment threshold under discussion at Fed [View news story]
    "Politics has been like this for the past 2000+ years though. Nothing new." Sad but true. I would like to think "nothing new", but Im not so sure anymore. The buffoons that are posing as politicians, will never come together to do whats best for America.
    Its now about protecting the elite and controlling the masses. We have seen many times over the last 2000 years that sometimes these events don't end nicely. Whats it going to take to change politics for the better ??

  • 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.
