  • Paulson, Bloomberg, Steyer: Global warming is risky business [View news story]
    A report by the biased 3!!!! Credibility = zero. Common sense means sustainable development and when it comes to energy, getting it from the oil sands where America is guaranteed secure access and has a say in how its developed is a lot better than getting it from places that hate America as is the case now!!! Wake up Obama!!!!

  • Zacks' Bull Of The Day: Encana [View article]
    Encana is more of a gas company than an oil company (80% of production is gas). Having said this, ECA is moving towards liquids and oil as the new president (Suttles) is working hard at monetizing assets, focusing on profitability and focusing development on the most promising assets. I am long ECA but the reader should not make the mistake of thinking it is an oil company. A gas company looking to move more into oil and liquids that is showing considerable success in its strategy is more like it.

  • Oyu Tolgoi Receives Audit Report From Mongolian Tax Authority [View article]
    Nothing new here - you have a corrupt nationalistic GOM that is always looking for more as they keep driving their economy into the ground. Rio Tinto knows this game well as they operate in many similar countries and so will not be bullied by these clowns. The investment agreement that includes tax stabilization is enforceable in world courts (a must have when doing business in a place like Mongolia as their courts are a joke) and the GOM does not have much of a leg to stand on here. The next election is in 2016 and chances are that this government will be history as the prior government was far more pro business and the people are taking an economic beating over the policies of the current government.

    Common sense is beyond the grasp of those like fossilfree who only see through the green blinders they are wearing. ;-)

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Iraq Crisis, Bond Yields, GE Bid [View article]
    One of the dirtiest sources of carbon???? NOT!!!! Oil sands bitumen is 4% - 16% (depending on source of supply and production method) more carbon intensive than conventional oil. Coal is way way worse and California heavy oil as well as a lot of the other heavy oils produced are also worse. It is not really as bad as the greens and (not in my back yard) BC crowd would like people to believe.

    Your post is "barn yard " material. They have been crying about eminent domain for 50 years! Their is good reason for that law to exist. Its called ability to do business and move product without being blackmailed to death by some narrow minded land owners.

    if you can't see how having a readily available source of oil coming from a source that is not going to turn the taps off and refined product sitting in Texas that could easily be redirected from what ever market it is going to to stay in the USA, then all I got to say to you is Duuuuu!!!###%%%!!. Besides - A lot of the refined product would stay in America and support American jobs anyway.

    If you really want to see sources of air born mercury look no further than coal burning power plants as everything else pales when compared to those.

    Vat taxes have actually become job killers in many countries because of the high rate it can get to (20 plus percent in some places). So not sure if this is a good idea as it increases smuggling and drives the economy underground.

  • Vale Hit Hardest By Global Iron Ore Glut [View article]
    The bigger question is how are these bigger players going to deal with the current situation? Rio Tinto has production costs of around $20/ ton and so have lots of room. BHP and Vale are higher than Tinto but quite a bit lower than the current price. A lot of the other players are not so lucky with costs ranging from $80/ ton and higher. So will the big three keep expanding deliveries knowing that it will be others that suffer most of the damage of lower prices or will they pull in on deliveries choosing to shore up margins?? This coupled with world demand are the real questions that need to be answered when looking at investment in this industry. JMO ;-)
