Every year since 1998 - this includes 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 ,2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 - have been cooler than 1998. And surprise, surprise, 2014 doesn't look any better for believers in this global warming/climate change nonsense.
Get used to it - we are looking at prolonged global cooling.
I think the Obama/EPA know that Supreme court Justices are not going to listen to the nonsense you listen to.. Your mailing list must include every mentally challenged person you can get your hands on.
Global warming/climate change is complete and total nonsense. The only people who believe this global warming/climate change nonsense are mentally challenged.
Funny. When the Obama/EPA was asked by a supreme court justice -during oral arguments before the entire supreme court - to provide one example of rising sea levels - guess what. The Obama/EPA team could not come up with even one example of rising sea levels.
global warming/climate change is complete and total nonsense.
Well, Powerburn has adjusted their estimates
for the week ending Feb 14 - 248
Feb 21 - 95
Feb 28 - 164
i still think these are all a little low but the wild card is that it is possible that the EIA is massaging the numbers in an attempt to prevent the perception of a natural gas crisis.
Global warming is dead. Put a fork in it.
Only members of the Church of Global Warming still believe in the global warming nonsense and the membership of the Church of Global Warming has been reduced to hard core morons.
Well, you know Sidney Snelgrove, legendary billionaire investor, said that he made his fortune off the stupidity of others.
I could be dead wrong, but my guess is that coal will not only survive but coal will thrive. But then again, who knows?
Well, this is just a game but I have no problem making my estimates.
February 14 will show a withdrawl of about 265
February 21 will show a withdrawl of about 125
February 28 will show a withdrawl of 165
After that - nobody knows - but I would not be surprised if we have withdrawls during all of March/early April which total 300-400.
Here are some predictions by experts
Sonny Liston will destroy Cassius Clay - odds 15 to 1
The baltimore Colts will destroy Joe Namath and the Jets - odds 20 to 1
Computers are going to fail worldwide -Y2000
These so called climate experts are no more than political hacks and religious fanatics
I hope you are not making investment decisions on your deluded ideas about how C02 influences climate.
C02 appears to have no influence on climate - just like the Physics department at Princeton university has been saying
Antes que nada, before we start, I have immense respect for Powerburn.
Powerburn is forcasting a ng withdrawl of 253 for the week ending Feb 14, a withdrawl of 92 for the week ending February 21 and a withdrawl of 122 for the week ending February 28.
All I can say is, interesting. Off the top of my head, it appears the withdrawl for Feb 14 will be more than 253. The withdrawl for February 21 will be at about 125 - maybe higher - and the withdrawl for February 28 will be above 150.
then again, what do I know? This is just a game but let's see what happens.
As far is I can tell, Mercury has made a good argument why C02 has no influence on climate and the elephant in the room is Mr Sun. C02 is a 99 pound quadraplegic and Mr Sun is the Incredible Hulk.
Anyway, it appears C02 has no influence on climate.
Since real thermometers are showing global cooling rather than global warming Obama has come up with a new thermometer.
It is the C02 thermometer. Shows rising C02 levels while temperatures are falling. What mystifies the general public is what good is a C02 thermometer? Any nitwit knows that C02 has nothing to do with temperatures rising or falling.
Al Gore was recently asked when we could expect global warming to resume. Al replied, have no fear, global warming is inevitable. However, Al explained, we may have to go through several centuries of global cooling before we see global warming again.
Nobel prize winner Al postulated that there was a correlation between global warming and global cooling. Global warming, according to Al, seems to occur only after prolonged periods of global cooling.
Keep this up Al and you will be known as Al ' Albert Einstein' Gore and be in line for another Nobel prize.
And you wonder why Tipper dumped that sad sack. Tipper said she could not tolerate one more second of listening to Al's global warming nonsense.
Agree with you completely
As far as JimmyJohn, Georgie and MustardMash go, their types of posts are typical of people who were destroyed by their coal investments. Bought high and sold low.
They are angry and are boiling mad that someone else is going to make money in coal by buying low and selling high..
On Monday the EIA made their short term natural gas predictions. The EIA predicts that NG will end the heating season with 1331 in storage. I do not know how they can make these predictions with a straight face.
I would bet the ranch that we will be below 1331 with the Feb 21 storage numbers. Then we have 4 or 5 more weeks of ng withdrawls.
The Head of the EIA had an interview with the Christian Science Monitor. Wow!!! This guy is lost in space. Might as well be listening to Al Gore. The only points he forget to mention were that the Arctic is ice free, Mt Everest in snow free and polar bears are extinct.
Holy Moses!!! Just saw withdrawl estimates for Feb 7 from Bloomberg. 236 The next week ending Feb 14 will be even more. We will be at about 1450 on Feb 14 - maybe slightly below 1450
Feb 14 to 28 are crucial. If you look at Accuweather we will have a withdrawl of about 225-250 for those dates leaving storage at 1200 -1225 on March 1. If you listen to the Weather Channel we are looking at a withdrawl of 250 - 275 which may put us under 1200
If the weather turns colder for Feb 15 -28 we could have an interesting situation.
In any event, the misconception that ng is cheap and plentiful is going to be exposed and the idea that natural gas is a bridge to the future is going to be replaced with idea that natural gas is a bridge to nowhere.
Not saying that Howard Weil/Wells Fargo are wrong but an all in cost of $3.90 for Chesapeake is weird.
Chesapeake freely admits that they are not interested in increasing natural gas plays until natural gas is $6.50.
The all in costs make assumptions about estimated lifetime production for each well. The projections of the natural gas producers has been a productive life of 30-40 years. In reality, most wells become uneconomic at about 7.5 years.
Complicating matters has been the observation that keeping the wells productive for 7.5 years is a lot more expensive than they thought. Constant refracking, fiddling with compression etc is expensive.
As an uptake. Accuweather has made an abrupt change in their weather forecast for next week.. Previously Accuweather had been projecting highs in Chicago for next Tuesday and Wednesday to be 46 and 47. Now they are projecting highs of 40 and 33.
Who knows, but it is looking more and more likely we will end the heating season with less than 1000 in storage. Storage as of Feb 14 should be about 1500 - maybe a little lower. That is a given. We already have the temperature readings almost to that date.
Then what happens? We sort of know that the storage will be about 1250 at the end of February. Last year we had a draw of 400 in March. That puts us at 850. One more good polar vortex and things could get interesting.
The analysis of air trapped in ice. If that has not been discredited as sloppy and unreliable I do not know what has.
Mostly done by 16 year old Russian technicians in Siberia after drinking gallons of vodka.
It is possible to do analysis of air trapped in ice but it is anything but easy. Fortuneately there is a lot of air trapped in ice so eventually we might have credible results. But let me repeat,. it is not easy. And an accepted methodology for this analysis is years away.
But, my guess is, when we do have credible numbers the air in trapped ice will show that CO2 levels of 400 to 1000 were completely normal thousand and millions of years ago. Of course the high C02 levels of yesteryear were due to that nasty city Atlantis which burned coal like there as no tomorrow.
