    "With more than 90% of its electricity generated from renewable energy sources and goals
    to reach 95% by 2014, Costa Rica is certainly one of the greenest countries on the planet.
    It also is on track to become the world’s first carbon-free economy."
    (Costa Rica Star, Oct. 2012) Web Search "Costa Rica renewable energy"

    Costa Rica has a population 4.8 million, of whom nearly a quarter live in the metropolitan area
    of the capital and largest city, San José. (Read more at Wikipedia. Impressive!)

    FYI: Fraudulent Conveyance is

    The only legal problem is that such a "Return of Capital" divident is a
    Criminal Fraudulent Conveyance. Creditors as well as responsible shareholders
    even employees should be screaming "Thieves!" Lock 'em up to set an example.

    To better illustrate, suppose a company has no business which is a better
    financial situation than a loss-making business. Based on a business plan
    or promise, the company borrows money then pays its shareholders a
    dividend from the cash received. Wouldn't that strike an average honest-citizen
    as criminal wrongdoing. That's because it is!

    From Scientific American, Feb. 2015, p.67 by Michael E. Webber
    "Our research at U.T. Austin indicates that intermittent wind power is more
    economically valuable when it is used to make clean water from brackish
    groundwater than when it is used to make electricity."
    "In parts of the desert Southwest, brackish groundwater is abundant at shallow depths."
    "Desalination of seawater is energy-intensive, but brackish groundwater is not nearly as salty."
    "We can rethink how to better use energy and water to grow food in unlikely places."

    Webber's article "A Puzzle for the Planet, pp. 62 - 67, contains other thought-provoking nuggets
    regarding the interrelationship of energy, water, and food.

    Thermal coal is a sell. Mines and power plants
    will be closed as solar-power displaces them.
    YZC has a lot of cash but also heavy debt.
    Perhaps it should acquire SCEI.

    Dividend Doctrine of Investors Liberation Movement
    Dividends can and should be paid ONLY when the company has nil debt,
    its business outlook is satisfactory, it has "surplus" cash defined as money it
    can't productively use in its business, and its stock price is too high to
    appropriately repurchase (meaning without making the remaining shares
    less valuable fundamentally). Any dividend declaration in violation of these
    four conditions is ipso facto NOT in the best interest of shareholders.
    If a dividend is paid, it should be done annually to save expense, occur when
    the company's cash hoard is most abundant, and timed in a manner to
    minimize the tax consequence to shareholders.
    REITs generally should not pay distributions exceeding the legally required
    minimum of 90% of taxable income following the same timing principles.

    Dividents are now being declared by many public companies whose shares are held
    by intermediary institutions on behalf of their unsophisticated holders for completely
    illegitimate reasons that the unsophisticated holders would never approve if they were
    aware of the damaging effects. That's why the First Iron Rule for independent investors
    and the slogan of Investors Liberation Movement is "Never buy mutual funds!"
    Someday, I hope that I.L.M. can approve mutual funds operated according to
    our doctrines because I realize that many ordinary people can't spend the time
    to personally manage their investments.

    It's located in the sunny Mediterranean closer to the equator than most of Europe.

    Energy production is dominated by state-owned DEI which supplied 77.3% in 2010.
    Almost half (48%) of DEI's power output was generated using lignite,
    12% comes from hydroelectric, and another 20% from natural gas.

    In 2012 renewable energy accounted for 13.8% of the country's total energy consumption almost equal
    to the EU average of 14.1%. 10% of the country's renewable energy comes from solar power while
    most comes from biomass and waste recycling. In line with the European Commission's Directive
    on Renewable Energy, Greece aims to get 18% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.

    In 2013 according to the independent power transmission operator (ΑΔΜΗΕ),
    more than 20% of the electricity has been produced from renewable energy sources
    and hydroelectric. This percentage in April reached 42%. (Wikipedia)

    As you well know, divident is a deliberate misspelling and is
    defined as any dividend paid in violation of our Dividend Doctrine. Use it
    to castigate Financial Vampires and to educate unsophisticated investors.

    When the name of a U.S. President is mentioned, usually one or two associated events
    immediately come to mind which seem to define the historical legacy of that president
    for better or worse. Examples: F.D. Roosevelt - Great Depression, World War II
    Truman - A-Bombing Japan -- Eisenhower - Interstate Highways
    Kennedy - Man on the Moon, Cuban Missile Crisis, Civil Rights
    Johnson - Vietnam War -- Nixon - Watergate

    Obama sorely needs something really GREAT to be favorably remembered throughout the ages.
    That opportunity could be Renewable Energy. -- Carpe diem, Mr. President!

    The share of total electricity generation from renewable sources (other than hydropower)
    is expected to rise from 6.7% in 2014 to 7.9% in 2016. (EIA)

    Located in the Puna district on the Big Island in Hawaii, Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) is
    the only geothermal power plant in the state. PGV is comprised of two air-cooled power plants,
    a combined cycle system and a binary system, with a total generating capacity of 38 MW.
    The facility includes several features that make it environmentally friendly including:
    noise-reduction enclosures, a low-profile, small-footprint design; near-zero emissions;
    100% geothermal fluid re-injection; and continual monitoring measures.
    PGV commenced commercial operation in 1993. It was acquired by Ormat in June 2004.
    Over the years, Ormat has increased the output of the Puna power plant by upgrading the plant
    through resource development and with the addition of a bottoming OEC in 2011.
    The PGV power plant sells its electrical output to Hawaii Electric Light Company
    under three long-term power purchase agreements.
