    "...has bottomed out in the last year at $3.59."

    Don't think so. Yahoo shows that number as the low of the year, but I would have noticed that. Yahoo's 1-year chart shows 7.08.

  • Atlantic Power: A Tale Of Misinformation [View article]
    Sun beams and pin wheels. AT, another Solyndra type scam.
    Bought at 15.69 and was almost even in Oct/Nov 2012, at which point I was going to bail. Close but no cigar. Now holding a bag full.

    "No other auto maker has an answer to match TM's hybrids."

    Check out Ford's new C-Max. In their competition with Prius, they claim more mpg and more hp.

  • Is The U.S. Building An Unsustainable Welfare Support System? [View article]
    smcguia wrote: "...thanks to completely broken system from day one which never adjusted for baby boomers..."

    The broken system was repaired under Reagan and the adjustment for retiring baby boomers was included. Pay check deductions were increased and retirement ages extended. Since then, all excess collected funds were put in a "lock box".

    Now as the baby boomers are retiring in greater numbers, the benefits exceed the taxes going into the box, so some money needs to be taken out.

    This is where the problem occurs. The money in the box was stolen and spent. It's empty. The $2.5 trillion endowment for the retiring baby boomers is gone.

    That's why it's a problem today, and not in 35 years when the box was supposed to become empty, as many of the boomers were dying off.

    Is that $2.5 trillion included in the debt figure of $16+ trillion?

    ODD!
    Of the 34 comments, 24 of them are from first commenters, 3 from 2nd commentors, and 2 from 3rd commenters = 29 mostly anti-fracking zealots, or one with a lot of alias's.

  • Chevron (CVX -2%) says it may consider expanding its proposed liquefied natural gas export terminal off Canada’s Pacific coast because of its "vast amounts” of gas reserves in the Liard and Horn River formations in British Columbia. Meanwhile, Canada's government gives final approval to an export license for Shell's (RDS.A) planned LNG plant on the coast, only the third such approval. [View news story]

    Kevin's stalker gets in the first comment. I think Mr. Tag is starting to sweat the upcoming CC. Surprise announcement?

    Another good article Kevin. Always learn something new.

    I've got a question for you, that I'll also ask on Yahoo's SZYM MB (one of the guys there studies their patents).

    Do you know if SZYM is working with any saltwater micro-algae strains?
