The increases are impressive. what will be more impressive will be coal stockpiles at the end of february. Probably 120-125. The biggest draws on coal stockpiles are in the summer, especially this summer, with gas to coal switching.
We are headed for an energy crisis - not enough natural gas and not enough coal. In large part because of the misguided idea that solar and wind will come to the rescue. The sad fact is solar provides 0.4% of our power and investment in wind disappeared after the tax credits for wind were rescinded early this year.
To say we do not have an energy policy is an understatement. The inability to make a decision on the Keystone Project is glaring evidence that this Administration in lost with Alice in Wonderland. or on a prolonged acid trip.
