    • Romneyhood could care less about coal
      Unless he can find a way to send the jobs
      overseas!

      "There are two things that are infinite. The universe and human stupidity, and I am not certain about the first"

    • Or you vote romney, get obama and the green thumb nut crowd out and and then BTU goes straight up. It depends on your pocket book, make money for yourself or give to the obama green crowd.

    • >> Just imagine if the president of America feels the same way.

      I have no idea what the president feels. But regarding EPA rules, I am pretty sure they will continue on their current path. So whatever investing decisions I make, they will be assuming current EPA rules stay in place. That means a strong recovery in BTU has to be from exports and also favorable from weather and natural gas pricing.

    • You ask a relevant question, with no simple answer. Some government actions are effective. Others do not produce the stated goals.
      ========
      While I contend the majority of government policies (ie sarbanes oxley,, Did that catch good ole boy Jon Corzine?) are minimally productive at best, I agree government has the ability to influence an outcome, good, bad, stated objective or untended consequences , like: ""CO2 emissions in US drop to 20-year low""
      "Many of the world's leading climate scientists didn't see the drop coming, in large part because it happened as a result of market forces rather than direct government action "
      You can change that word in the first sentence from "Many" to" ALL"
      lolz

      But regardless of our differing political persuasions, you, like many who believe government is the solution are not unintelligent, stupid or ignorant, it is just "what you know, isn't right".
      lol
      So,,,,, what do you do today?
      Start by reading the article: AP IMPACT: CO2 emissions in US drop to 20-year low " and that should help you formulate an idea as to where BTU is going, depending upon if a guy like this makes the rules. ""Natural gas is not a long-term solution to the CO2 problem," Pielke warned."

      So the people who think as Pielke strongly believes, : Coal is Dirty, but Natural Gas is not the solution. Does it matter that he believes he knows what the problem is, but he has nary a clue as to the solution?

      Just imagine if the president of America feels the same way.

      Doesn't take much imagination, does it?

    • You ask a relevant question, with no simple answer. Some government actions are effective. Others do not produce the stated goals.

      Let's stipulate that government action is responsible for the sad state of coal and BTU. What should I do with my BTU shares that I own today ?

    • is that why BTU is up in the past couple of weeks ? Because mining permits are being pulled. And miners sent home. Thereby limiting supply of coal, and raising price of companies that are still in business ?

      Seems positive for BTU.
      =====================================
      Let's give it another try.
      Because you suggest that the coal supply is lower, that will support prices and that was caused by the action of the EPA. OK.
      But while you give credit to the government for actions they have taken that have positive results, you totally deny that same government can have ANY NEGATIVE Influences.

      Which one is correct. OR do you want it both ways?

    • >> If you went to coal country, you will find mining permits are being pulled and miners sent home.

    • If you went to coal country, you will find mining permits are being pulled and miners sent home. That's not low nat gas prices, that's the EPA under Obama.
      He couldn't get the carbon tax, so he cranked up the EPA. He did the same to sue Boeing in NC. Using the Labor board to kill jobs and support his unions thugs. He is going around congress and using his thugs for his fascist destruction of capitalism.
