Keep Track of Your Minerals

I am not a good bookkeeper but when my check stub arrives I read it and post it in a spreadsheet, then distribute the money to the stakeholders in our family trust. That partnership has a means of smooth transition so if I die suddenly, the checks continue to flow into the account and the names change on… Read More »

The Peer Review Scandal in Science

Peer review was supposed to be a method whereby a scientist who published articles had their scientific work scrutinized by a body of “peers”. The peer system is broken. There have been a huge number of self-serving periodicals, journals and on line journals that are “peer reviewed” by like-minded friends of the author. So much for peer review.… Read More »

High Prices Are Not a Given in 2017

The “keep it in the ground” snowflakes are certainly a clueless bunch. They have no idea what they are talking about and standing on the street and chanting while wearing faux fur, Dacron II filled nylon jackets with plastic zippers, and holding up signs made from vinyl speaks volumes about their nonsensical view of the world. Never mind… Read More »

Geothermal – the Other Low Carbon Energy

Geothermal energy is the poor stepchild of low carbon footprint “alternative energy”. Why?

But he lays out compelling evidence that climate myths are destroying the environment. Further, he has sound science behind him. In judging the moral philosophy – some call it “ecosophy”… Read More »

The Myth of Alternative Energy Replacing Oil

I was visiting with a friend recently and we were talking about the “good old days” which we recalled to not always be so good. But I ventured that without electricity, we would be back to the old days overnight. How would we survive? I still have a barn with milk stanchions. I still have an old work… Read More »
