The price advantage of NG remains in place as it sinks with oil.
Oil is a cyclical industry. The price always rises again.
We have finally achieved energy independence in the US!
We now have an energy cost advantage and that ought to stimulate the general economy very nicely.
Both hydrogen and electricity presently come from plants that are very far from 0 emissions!
Obama is doing a small part of what should have been done about coal power plants 30 years ago. The science is real clear!
The power plants and coal companies make lots of $ and the rest of us pay for it in rising levels of poisonous mercury, acid rain and atmospheric #$%$. It costs us a whole lot more to deal with in terms of health costs alone, than they are making. That's true even if you don't believe in global warming.
It's long been clear that power plant pollution is a bigger threat that vehicle pollution and politics have protected the power plants.
They bragged about " clean coal". Great, lets see them do it!
The US has all the cleaner burning NG it'll ever need for a very long time, Why mess with dirty coal?
If Obama has a mandate, it's from the voters who elected him expecting he'd move to clean up the environment in a big way.
Is the coal industry or American's health more important?
That none of the big pharmas with deep bio-medical expertise are willing to back us at this late date is disconcerting.
Given our history of descending valuation, i'm sorry to say it wouldn't be an altogether foolish bet.
We are still years from having a successful drug on the market, our patents are aging, other companies are learning from our efforts.
We have little spasms of optimism, rise a bit and then sink again.
There's a Pacific coast fish called an opel-eye perch that has charming blue eyes and i've caught many times. I had one in a tank for many years and she'd eat from my fingers. She completely dominated the tank and tolerated no competition. They become vegetarians with age.
Effective cancer fighting drugs are by their nature toxic. In the long run, many of them spawn secondary cancers many years later. Still, 35 years later, i'm still alive, if dopier.
Most drug candidates fail. That we have 35 of them helps the odds.
We won't know if our drugs are effective till we have clinical trials.
A black box on a drug means caution, NOT don't use it.
You are clearly speaking your short interest over human interests.
Are you really willing to allow extra deaths to promote your short profits?
Smells bad, doesn't it.
Will you come out against vaccines for a profit too?
They do cause a few unfortunate deaths.
Drugs aren't safe. Most cancer drugs have toxic side effects. It's a risk/reward judgement.
Isis drugs are no different.
Out here in CA, the price of diesel hasn't fallen all that much.
Building a tank tough enough to go on the road under that much gas pressure is an intimidating challenge.
Last year, a 1 ton truck pulling a heavy trailer overheated it's trans climbing the mountain and it caught on fire. The fire spread under it, up into the engine and then the cab, feeding on plastics. The diesel tank overheated and caught fire and then the big diesel tank mounted in the bed of the truck went up. Flaming fuel spilled out and ran down the downside slope and fire covered the highway.
Can you imagine the explosion if that truck had an equivalent NG fuel load?
Has me wondering about my investment here. It wouldn't take many spectacular NG explosions to put us out of business.
With NG and shale oil, we are now pretty much free of our dependence on arab oil.
Obama did that to a great degree, going in the face of the environmental end of his party.
Even the Iranians aren't stupid or radical enough to actually use a nuke.
