    Nice move by management

    Forgot to mention that RigZone's most recent edition had a article on the potential for a lot of U.S. E&P companies to file bankruptcy in the next year or more. I'm guessing that CORR's latest acquisition was just one of those near-bankruptcy situations.

    Yes, I was nibbling down there, also. They continue to do everything right, IMO. Just hope that doesn't change.

    Patentbuddy shows he has several patents to his credit.

    Also, he was an EVTN consultant for maybe 10 years so all those 10Ks we saw thru the years with "consulting fees" just might have been him.

    Supreme Court

    In the latest salvo between the two sides in the war on coal, it appears as though the coal power industry recorded a victory.

    On Monday, in the case Michigan v. EPA, the Supreme Court ruled against EPA regulations on emissions of mercury and other heavy metals from power plants by a vote of 5 to 4.

    Justice Antonin Scalia issued the majority opinion in the case, and he argued much in the same way others have argued against EPA regulations: “The agency must consider cost — including, most importantly, cost of compliance — before deciding whether regulation is appropriate and necessary.”

    Several opponents of the EPA hailed the decision...

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott said the ruling was “good news for Texas.”

    The state's Attorney General, Ken Paxton, said the ruling was a “victory in our efforts to rein in an out of control EPA.”

    However, if you look closely at the situation, the mercury ruling by the Supreme Court does little to hurt the EPA or any of its regulations against coal.

    For one, the rules on carbon emissions from new and existing plants are still intact, and this ruling offers no precedents for future litigation.

    Also, Monday's decision doesn't actually kill this regulation in any way; it just forces the EPA to rewrite the rules with more attention to cost and benefit, which some estimate as $10 billion in cost versus $80 billion in benefit.

    When the rules are rewritten to include cost (this could take years — after all, the EPA is a government agency), it isn't a stretch to assume they'll survive the courts.

    Major livestock industry support

    Yes, I read both of them and was impressed by messages expressed. Can't imagine how the case for SB724 passage could have been stated any more clearly and forcefully. Construction of that PR took some thought and time. Let's hope the PA legislature votes for acceptance.

    Could TRER benefit from MCP BK?

    I might if I knew what MCP BK meant.
    Interesting that 51,000 shares traded today and the PPS was up a penny on a very bad general market day.

    "The Renewable Energy portion of the tour is not offered to the general public. A designer of this renewable energy project will be on hand to explain how Fair Oaks Farm is powered by methane gas generated from manure."
    Taken from the promo for this tour sponsored by the organization that my wife belongs to. I take it that they just spread the manure on their 30,000 acres after they get what methane they can from the stuff. They now have a pig operation in addition to their dairy herds so they have double trouble with manure.
    The tour is mid-July and the only reason I'm going is to see the pig operation as this is no Kreider Farms operation. If there's anything remotely similar to Kreider, I'll relay it.

    OK, business for Bion without a government mandate, I take it. Since all the emphasis through the years has been on the legislative side, I just never considered the dairy and feedlot people taking up the cause on their own.

    Read it twice. Looks like HB724 is what's really needed to get the ball rolling. Just no substitute for positive legislation.

    oil spill must be settling down

    "extends beyond the rim of the plate" that's because they've shrunken the plates a tad in the last year or haven't you noticed which allows them to shrink the portion size.

    Cracker Barrel - $148 and change. Eaten in many of their places and almost every time it's: meat loaf, mashed potatoes with brown gravy, carrots, corn and biscuits - YUM. Easily had that 100 times in the last 20 years.

    No, I've never owned a share of CBRL.

    Looks like somebody/ies liked the latest PR. Hopefully by the time BION gets this certification HB724 will have been favorably passed fro BION, also.

    How did the presentation at LD Micro go? Were there a lot of attendees? Were good questions asked? Anything you can add?

    Several 1st gen BION systems - how did they work out? Are they still running? What did you learn from them? Is Kreider 2nd gen?

    As I've tried to post without success several times, we just completed a driving trip, part of which, was tru eastern North Carolina. Several times, I spotted billboards sponsored by "swinepollutionDOTcom" re the pollution problem in NC. They have a rather interesting WEB site, IMO. Just another opportunity for BION.

  • "....Lithium is the Oil of the Future

    Although I'll always be an oil bull, I'm well aware that lithium is the next big commodity for investors.

    Coal is done for, and lithium-ion batteries are the best solution we have to store electricity when the wind isn't blowing, the sun isn't shining, and when our cars get plugged into the wall instead of a gas station pump.

    That's why you've probably heard me call it “the oil of the future.”

    Soon enough, lithium will be followed as closely on the market as oil is today, and because it is scarce, lithium prices are going to soar when demand for batteries ramps up over the next few years.

    Investors who position themselves today will earn similar fortunes to those who invested in coal before the industrial revolution, oil in the early 20th century, and nuclear in the 1980s."

    Now, if TRER can get it's act going, the lithium part of that Texas hill will come into play.

    Hmmmmm, I now have a GTC in at .20.

    Do hope there's nothing serious behind the dumping/selling pressure today.

    Kind of think you filled today.

  • Quite positive, IMO. They need to successfully get past another process stage and then sign a JV with K-Tech. Who knows how long that will take but, at least, they didn't give any more deadline/s that they could miss like the 4/15 one. :-)
