Google "Jim Cramer Mad Money" and you will find the Mad Money site, where you can submit a question to Jim Cramer. Perhaps we should all ask him if ACI might be a nat gas play due to the fact that the Leer mine sits over the Marcellus shale gas formation.
Oops, I meant this to be a reply to Ben Stevens' post about "Email" to Arch regarding the possibilities of exploring for NatGas in Arch-owned properties.
Not saying you don't have any clout, Ben Stevens, but Arch is probably poo-pooing your efforts. However, if someone with some standing in the financial journalism field were to raise the issue, then it might motivate Arch to more action. Maybe someone at Bloomberg or CNBC would be interested in this subject? It could actually be a "scoop" for them.
I think the powers that be really can destroy coal. I've seen it happen with the precious metals, so why not coal? I'm thinking of going all-in short on coal.
The day is coming when humanity will thank the coal industry for pumping CO2 into the atmosphere and staving off the coming ice age.
Well, according to gbor, the PRB spot price doesn't matter because ACI is 100% hedged through 2014 - if I understood him correctly.
This is an intriguing theory that needs to be explored. Does anyone have any intel that would support Mr Stevens' theory? Thanks.
Dwayne - perhaps your could write something for Seeking Alpha that discusses Ben Stevens' theory that Arch's coal properties harbor natural gas fields under them. How about you two collaborating on an article?!
Maybe you should write an article for Seeking Alpha on this subject. It might force Arch to address the issue if it receives some commentary or attention from, say, a CNBC analyst for example.
Looks bad on the financial statements.
This is why Greenies have changed the meme from "Global Warming" to "Climate Change." Now, any change to the climate can be blamed on demon CO2, and the attacks on the American coal industry can continue unabated.
Coal exports help to ameliorate the trade deficit of the United States. Greenies wish to destroy the coal industry, thus worsening the trade deficit of the United States. Is this not a threat to the economic health and security of the United States?
Given that the Greenie agenda is to destroy the American coal industry and exchange cheap coal-generated energy with expensive, unproven, un-economic "green" alternatives, is it unreasonable to say that Greenies are attempting to undermine the economic foundation of America? Is this not treason?
The Patriot Act defines domestic terrorism as activities intended to "intimidate or coerce a civilian population; to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion." By that definition, are not the Greenies attempting to intimidate the government of the United States with threats to destroy the coal industry of America by using the coercive power of specious climate change arguments?
