  • Really? Did it take a poll? What a non-shocker. How many days again?

    Notice how the liberal media had to throw W in there even though the gap was 5%. Nice.


    From USA Today, 8:31 AM

    "President Obama has topped predecessor George W. Bush in another poll, but not one he would like.

    In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Obama the worst president since World War II, and 28% put Bush at the bottom of post-war presidents.

    "Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

    Of course, Obama and Bush are the most recent presidents; historians will tell you that it takes decades to truly measure an individual president's performance.

    Ronald Reagan topped the poll as the best president since World War II, with 35%. He is followed by presidents Bill Clinton (18%) and John F. Kennedy (15%).

    Obama received only 8% in the best presidents poll.

    The Quinnipiac poll also reports that 45% believe the nation would be better off had Mitt Romney defeated Obama in the 2012 presidential election; 38% say the country would be worse off with a Romney presidency."

  • Just come clean and say you are the front poster for a person or persons with a short position that is spamming this board to death in order to try and affect some fictitious time when they will cover.

    Come on, we are just retail minutia, it is really not doing much and really annoying.

    As I have said, I am buying back in today. The funds are holding (see the volume).

    Give it a rest.

    I detest answering a question with questions, but how could it not last? Are you looking at PPS and not figuring in cash-on-hand, free cash flow, cash burn, debt servicing and debt maturity? What would they be declaring bankruptcy from in the next 5-17 months?

    Thanks for letting us know,


  • EIA - Net Generation by Energy Source: Rolling 12 Months Ending in April (in megawatthours)

    Coal = 1,629,010
    ALL Renewable Sources Excluding Hydroelectric = 263,468


    Detail for solar:
    Solar Photovoltaic = 10,394
    Solar Thermal = 1,253

    But wait, even lowly landfill gas may pass solar in the very near future, it sits at 9,631 and has been again on good ole' Sol.

    When faced with fact, the solar crowd has such great comebacks as 'Oh yeah' and the even better 'Coal shill' or the most impressive "Solar is experiencing exponential growth". Love it!

    Hey Dwayne,

    Don't waste your posts, I won't anymore. The drater (please reverse letters) doesn't have a clue he on a coal board. Mentally challenged, take pity. His parents will take away his access soon enough.

    If coal is so good for the economy...

    And Arch coal's main profit driver, metallurgical coal? Were you born in a hospital? Do you live in a house? Do you operate a bicycle or car? Does the basement you live in have steel girders holding up the first level of the house (hint, look up)? Is your nation defended with sticks and stones or planes and guns?

    Confused fellow, wake up and put that solar in that iron to make steel. I need to see this one.

    What are you talking about?

    I suggest you go live in the hut in the Nairobi slum next to Obama's half-brother George. No coal, no electricity, just booze and poverty. Or, you can go to Detroit, same thing.

    Sorry for the confusion, but again:

    "What is the percent of electric power generation in the US 1Q 2014 for solar?"

    Hypothetical nonsense. Try some facts.

    Last hypothetical blather: In 2011 coal was expected to be bypassed by Natural Gas as the primary source for electric generation in the US by 2014. Coal went from 28.5% of the electric mix to 42.3%. Oooops, wrong way. Capitalism wins.

    Exponential growth for a short time of 0.26% ... amazing. It is 0.26% for solar, right? Or is there a fib that can be told that can change it?


  • As credibility is lost, so are initiatives.

    Who was ultimately responsible for the VA? Who is the 'CEO'? Hint: It wasn't Shinseki.

    Bergdahl - Wow, even Feinstein is jumping in on this one.

    ACA (Obamacare): Lots of enrollments, lots of government money, few payments from the young uninsured necessary to fund the program. It is starting to show more clearly now.

    Keystone pipeline - Clearly beholden to special interest groups

    Benghazi - Who was ultimately responsible for that one? Who is the 'CEO'?

    EPA - No hard direction to the EPA to get measurement of methane release at fracking sites. Special interest groups starting to turn on him. Reference the movies coming out (Gasland for example)

    Chicago - Emanuel's career as a mayor in shambles. City is broke. Lots of bicycles no one wants to use (if you know what I am talking about :-) Poor financial management, poor planning. Obama's best friend.

    and on ... and on ...

    Yes, there have been successes, Osama Bin Laden for example (thank the CIA for the 'immunization' campaign), but, if you want to have executive orders stick, you better have the street cred.

    LIAR. Dummy. Wrong board, you too dummy to even know this is the common stock of a coal supplier? Who cares of the itsy bitsy piece of total. Go take your 0.26% of the energy source pie to the corner and play with your panels! Dummy.

    Bill Clinton and JFK were indeed two of our best President's in the last 100 years, and so was Ronald Reagan.

    Jimmy Carter and Barry Soetoro, two of the well, I don't like negatives so let me just say 'one's that made the mediocre look exceptional'.


  • Just starting. Even better with domestic mining supply reductions.

    Natural Gas Storage Report

    All depends on what the definition of 'normal' and 'winter's start' are, n'est pas?

    Is normal anywhere within the 5 year band? Is normal the median of the 5 year band? Is normal now over and above the 5-year band because of the conversion to gas driven electricity in the East?

    Remember, pipelines only go where pipelines go. The west could have a surplus and the east run out ... 'ain't no truck taking it up Highway 44'.

    Couple that with another brutal winter (and excessive heat in the east particularly) and ... well, my older friends in Boston and NYC will be paying 3x normal bills. And Uncle Sam is nice, but he only give so much in social security money.

    HOWEVER ...

    It's all about the Met, it's all about the Met ... say it with me ...

    LIAR. NG is not clean. It only burns 'cleaner'. Do some research LIAR.

    From Zack's 40 minutes ago:

    "As per the Energy Information Administration, coal consumption is estimated to increase by 5% in 2014 backed by rising power demand in the U.S.".

    Solar would have to increase what percent to equate to the 5% thermal coal consumption rise ...

    BAHAHAHAHAH! You dummy!

  • From the EIA last updated June 14, 2014 in the FAQs:
    What is U.S. electricity generation by energy source?

    In 2013, the United States generated about 4,058 billion kilowatthours of electricity. About 67% of the electricity generated was from fossil fuel (coal, natural gas, and petroleum), with 39% attributed from coal.

    In 2013, energy sources and percent share of total electricity generation were
    • Coal 39%
    • Natural Gas 27%
    • Nuclear 19%
    • Hydropower 7%
    • Other Renewable 6% • Biomass 1.48%
    • Geothermal 0.41%
    • Solar 0.23%
    • Wind 4.13%

    • Petroleum 1%
    • Other Gases

    Are you daft? What argument? Fact is fact. I know that is hard for you of the 'Oh yeah' ilk.

    Try this, I will skip making you construct and deliver my lunch (and you do run a very fine chain I do say) if you simply post another easy to find fact. Coal versus ALL SOLAR: How much did each increase in the production of megawatthours from 2013 to 2014 in the rolling 12 month period April to April?

    I am just all aquiver (as I am sure other are) waiting for your factual response. Venture to say most here don't expect any fact from you, only conjecture, blather and meaningless drivel. Prove them wrong.


  • run_by_hr run_by_hr Jun 24, 2014 9:50 AM Flag

    Yeah, 42.3% of electric power generation in the US 1Q 2014, up 11% from last year. You are not the brightest candle in church. How about 'Arch Coal Stock Price is Almost Dead', now that would not be a lie.

    What is the percent of electric power generation in the US 1Q 2014 for solar?
