  • CNX Coal Resources - 13.7% Yield Protected For Years By Contracts And Common Unit Priority [View article]
    It just amazes me how the greenies think that solar and wind wind have no environmental impact. They totally disregard the thousand of acres that must be mined for the rare earths used, not to mention the disposal of all the wind mills and solar panels when the reach the end of their life cycle.

    Ditto that Hector, I have held CNX shares for 20 years and have done well with them, riding the cyclical wave. This latest bear attack was starting to shake my confidence. I also read a rather technical report a few days ago, that I am at a loss to link to it, that was stating some very strong figures from some newer Utica drillings. CNX has quite a few acres in this gas belt and was mentioned as a beneficiary.

    I rolled my own food based ETF several years ago - it has done quite well.
    I used NEOG,MON,DE,JBT, and KR. WFCF is a new one to me - thanks for the heads up.

    The largest coal fired plant in the country has operated 24/7 for 30 years
    15 miles from my residence. Its surrounded by several thousand acres of managed timberland, wildlife refuge, hunting, hiking, camping, 3500 ac fishing lake, etc. and is open to the public. I have been a regular for most of those 30 years. If it were not for the large cooling towers, one would not know its there. Employs 5000 if I remember correctly. As I see it, they, the Southern Co., do a fine job. Billions have been spent to keep it updated. Problem is the EPA keeps changing the rules. Countless groups are monitoring the water, air, and soil for the least amount of pollutant. To date, all is well. CO2 classified as a pollutant is the problem. Remove that
    and coal can be much cleaner. We also enjoy some of the lowest electric rates in the country.

    Yes, its dropping, but even 30% is a lot of tons for some companies to produce. A certain % of fossil fuel will be needed for base load. Rolling blackouts will get no one re-elected. Coal and natural gas are going to be it for awhile. The coal plant in my county is burning over 200 carloads/day and surrounding gas fired turbines are wide open. Oil industry is in same
    scenario. Once supply is in balance all will be well. Lower production from thinning out the herd will produce some mighty fine gains from the survivors - in the long run.

    Coal still makes up close to 40% of US energy not to mention steel use. High cost
    producers will fall but for those that survive, business will be good. Cant pick the bottom or the top - just try to get close. Long CNX

  • Cheap, abundant nat gas a bigger threat to coal than Obama's regulations [View news story]
    I agree. I have lived next (within 10) miles of the largest coal fired plant in the US for 30 years. If you could not see it, one would never know it was there. I believe it burn close to 200 rail cars a day of coal. Its a Southern Company plant and has pretty much all the latest pollution controls. This plant and surrounding area is constantly being monitored by
    several groups/agencies for hazards. There are none. Coal can be burned
    "cleanly" but as in any industrial process, there is toxic waste. No different for solar panels and batteries. The coal problem is CO2. No coal fired power plant can not produce high levels of CO2. I do not accept that CO2
    is a pollutant and the only reason it is, is because of Supreme Court ruling - not science. The US still gets close to 40% of its power from coal - that's
    a lot of coal and it will be there for awhile. Long CNX

    Do think swarm quakes near a fracking field could cause the field to be
    more productive ?
