old_sssage? I think he is just laying low because there is not too much to discuss (cuss, yes, discuss, not so much). I imagine if you tried a post with his name in the title he might see it and respond.
dcf is still here, gambling on weekends, enjoying retirement.
I am just sad. we consume 8-9% of the world's coal; super tight regulation here won't help the global bathtub as much as folk thing. It will continue to make America weaker as a 'colonial power' (he who controls the power has the power). If you watch the movie 2016 you will know of what I speak. It's both intentional and not intentional. If the black rock could hit the waves faster and more efficiently (rail lines in Montana, Longview port), life would be better for Arch.
Folk with a different agenda will almost die trying to make that NOT happen. Unfortunately, they don't understand that methane increases global warming 25x of CO2 ... and the fracking sites are releasing copious amounts of it each day. The EPA is just starting to 'warm up' to that idea and regulation of it.
