    Well to Wheels efficiency

    For as long as I can remember studying pumped storage systems,
    the round trip efficiencies have been ranging from 72-82%. There are some that are actually higher than this when the reservoir actually accumulates runoff from higher elevation waters ie. you pump up less than you receive when you empty it. In these cases the round trip efficiencies have been as high as 86%.
    Also, the thermal efficiencies of today's gasoline ICE engines are approaching 24% and diesels about 30%.

    Stressed out lithium batteries

    The atomic shuffling not only helps explain how lithium ions move through the anode, in this case a promising new material called zinc antimonide.
    And the breakthroughs keep coming...

    Predicting the bottom is a mug's game.
    No. Predicting the bottom is a technician's requirement. It does not matter whether it's overdone or not. Only the bottom is all that matters.

    I think you need to think opposite of what the analysts recommend. They will sell when it is at the top AFTER they recommend you buy it just so they can squeeze out a few more percent. They will buy after they recommend you sell it...just so they can squeeze out a few more percent. If you look at it this way you will come out with better buy and sell points and have a much better chance at making a good profit.
    It doesn't ALWAYS work out that way. A stock really could be in trouble, they load up a short position and then recommend you sell. But, in my experience, the analysts tend to work for their clients and company and not necessarily for you. You are a useful tool for their aspirations. Think about it as you go forward in your investing and see if you don't see the same thing over time....

  • India is making waves towards adding 12-fold to its nuclear power production after corruption surfaces in the coal mining permit process. India has the some of the world's largest thorium deposits and is asking China for assistance in the thorium technology. Earlier India claimed it is ramping up it's solar and wind capability, but nuclear power could easily best AE's in output and reliability towards providing many more citizen's ( a couple hundred million) access to cheap electricity. Maybe they saw the light in going nuclear instead? No mention of fuel cells in the latest article.

    Not so sure about that. Studies on many previous isotopic contaminated areas show that the rain appears to wash away residue into the ocean faster than initially thought making it theoretically possible to occupy contaminated areas earlier than planned. Not saying you aren't right, but the science is not settled yet. Maybe in 10-ish years we will have a better idea?

    Last week another paper, in a long line of papers, confirms the forcing factor for CO2 is somewhere in the range of 1.2 (meaning a doubling of CO2 will produce about a 1.2 degree increase in temperatures all things being equal).
    The IPCC has been forced to reduce their proclaimed forcing factor every report including the most recent AR5 as you pointed out. The climate modelers have been forced to reduce their factors in the models, too, but are still averaging ~2.0 for no good reason. Once they put 1.2 into their models the models will come close to approximating the real world temperature patterns.
    If the CO2 concentration rises by 3ppm per year, then in 100 years the CO2 concentration will be ~700 ppm meaning the projected global temperatures would rise about 0.8 degrees, or about 0.08 degrees per decade, all things being equal. This prognostication remains to be proven given the significant influence of the sun, and ocean current cycles, on the global climate.

    Is this a breakout I detect??

    It certainly now looks like the $20 barrier was definitely NOT broken. I'm sure we will try again, but it will be awhile...

    Time to pass around the plate!

    Hey red!
    The rise in temperatures along the U.S. West Coast during the past century is almost entirely the result of natural forces — not human emissions of greenhouse gases, according to a major new study released today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    Northeast Pacific coastal warming since 1900 is often ascribed to anthropogenic greenhouse forcing, whereas multidecadal temperature changes are widely interpreted in the framework of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), which responds to regional atmospheric dynamics. This study uses several independent data sources to demonstrate that century-long warming around the northeast Pacific margins, like multidecadal variability, can be primarily attributed to changes in atmospheric circulation. It presents a significant reinterpretation of the region’s recent climate change origins, showing that atmospheric conditions have changed substantially over the last century, that these changes are not likely related to historical anthropogenic and natural radiative forcing, and that dynamical mechanisms of interannual and multidecadal temperature variability can also apply to observed century-long trends.
    OMG, red! The National Academy of Sciences research says natural variation trumps CO2 hysteria! They are slowly coming so many others will be forced's just a matter of time. The models are wrong. The real world does not agree with the models. CO2 is not a major driver of the climate despite what all your politcal science 'experts' tell you. How many times did us non-warmers tell you that there is very little correlation in West Coast droughts and CO2, but that the changing PDO/ADO/AMO cycles are the drivers that affect, not just Western American weather, but weather worldwide? But did you believe? NOOOO! It was the big bad CO2 molecules...

    I am scheduled to buy some additional shares of Ballard based on my Nov puts so I will be longer than today. How does it feel to be perennially wrong, red?
    I don't really have to fight global warmers, red. The real climate data makes them look silly enough already. BTW how manyhundreds of thousands of gallons of fossil fuel did all the world's climate change hypocrites use to go and participate in the climate parades (charades?) this weekend?

  • Ok all you Ballard supporters. You didn't come through for me the last week and the stock has lost another 9%. But here is your chance!
    The stock price is sitting near medium support levels at the $2.90-ish area. You don't want it to fall through and decline further, right? So open your wallets and start buying again. Show me you have resolve to not let it fall any further. The technical's are on your side here, gents! Let's see what you can collectively do.

    Think long!
