U.S. Smashes Record: Highest Production Of Lowest Quality Fuel In The World
3 years ago

Marc, I think YOU should look up the term devil's advocate, as it simply means "a person who expresses a contentious opinion in order to provoke debate or test the strength of the opposing arguments." If that term offended you I apologize, but I meant nothing negative by it.

That video is a presentation by the National Corn Growers Association. I'm not going to waste an hour of my life watching something that has a very very good reason to be biased.

There have been meta-analyses done on the subject of corn ethanol EROEI, and they put corn ethanol AT THE MOST at 1.4 EROEI. As Steve was saying in his article, we need a much more EFFICIENT fuel for America to focus on in order to have a sustainable future. That's what Steve meant by low quality, the corn ethanol low efficiency.

Marc, I appreciate a devil's advocate as much as the next guy, I love bringing up as many sources of data and as many facts as possible. Your response however seems to just be an attack on Steve however! Instead of delving into the realities of energy production and the economics behind it, you take his wording out of context and use it against him. For example you attack Steve for calling #corn #ethanol a low quality fuel and reply that due to it's high hydrocarbon content it's a very powerful fuel. Now your reply is correct: corn ethanol is very high in hydrocarbons. It produces a lot of power per volume used. That however does not take into account the economics behind the production of this corn ethanol. Many scientists debate whether or not it even breaks the 1.0 EROIE point, and therefore it is barely efficient, if efficient at all, to create this fuel in the first place.

Love the Pollock comparison! If you had tell those you love whom are not financially-savvy to either invest in an S&P 500 etf or in their state sponsored pension fund, what would you tell them? I personally struggle to find solid ideas for the want-to-be passive investors in my life, and I would love to hear what you would do in this situation!

One could look at a shorter term RSI during expected times of Japan's announcement and react to that, but you're definitely right: it will be extremely difficult to capture the possible gains from shorting these stocks

With all of the recent increases in stock prices for the "prospect" companies of Japan's new developments, the move seems to be to wait until the date of the announcement and short the stocks that don't get the bid. That nearly assures profits, as there are many investors moving into these stocks strictly to bet on this bidding war.

This seems to have great potential to rise with the increasing populist opinions! Is that a part of your target price analysis or did you keep it completely non-speculative?

Do you think that the Fed would risk spooking the markets with a rate increase? With the amount of uncertainty going on right now it seems pretty risky!

Tech Talk: Canada’s Oil Sands Story
3 years ago

With the recent shift in corporate opinions moving towards a future with clean energy, I wouldn't invest in any kind of oil sands company. The net energy produced by oil sands is so low they will be the first to go when clean energy begins the real takeover, so any gains will be very very short term and unpredictable.
