Channel3000: Rail Route from Minn-Chicago---The Red Wing Dream

As a youngster, every fall during the change of colors, Dad packed us in the car for a trip to Red Wing, Mn and the Red Wing Pottery.

That's been a few years ago---the train station is a Burger King now. But the views are just as breathtaking...and it still would be a dream retirement to live on the river, hop the train to Mpls or St. Paul or wherever.

The restoration of train service might just happen. Click on the post for the article from Channel3000.

Brit Bankers Oppose Bonus Tax--BBC--Should US follow similar TAX?

When Writers Wore Tweed----

Duluth Trading has a new bit on Twitter that goes: "Real Men Don't Twitter--they wear the writers tweed----". Click on the post for the tweet.

However--given the current state of compensation for writers, it is beyond one's memory to recall when a writer bought a Tweed new...maybe a Goodwill tweed, but not new.

With newspapers, Tv, Radio, etc all in financial trouble, Paid content is on the way---and soon. Murdock is right. You just cannot demand high quality and then pay zero.

Accounting Corner: Law Corner: Simple Math Corner: "When Things Do Not Add Up"--OpEd

Recently while watching a football game, I noticed that the audio track from a certain popular channel just did not match the video---boy did that ruin the game for me. Nothing like being a little delayed to rattle the enjoyment. When things just do not match up...there is a real sense of things being wrong somehow....things need to mesh to make sense in our lives.

Recently, in the political arena, something similar has occured.

There was a theft from a local school district that was discovered in July. Revealed to the public in November. Always need a little delay to model Edward Kennedy and Tiger Woods I presume. The theft was not revealed to local law enforcement it seems, no need to follow proper procedure, but sent directly to the DA, where it seems that the person confessed to $100,000 of theft, while in the alternative pleading "not guilty." We never really plead these days, but plead in the multiple alternative. Right at that point of the story, I hear the sound track going off the road.

But relax...it gets better. The person involved supposedly had a gambling addiction and a $200,000 gambling debt---but not one person, even the DA it seems, worried in the least of where the other $100,000 was. The school that had been stolen from reviewed two years of accounting and then declined to go further in history. They presumably felt so bad about the incident that they did not want to really know the facts...and well,....maybe the DA feels so bad that he does not want to know either.

And that is where we are today---in a place where the FACTS and the LAW do not matter....just the POLITICS and how we FEEL seems to be important.

As I see it there are two phases---determination of facts---as in the old Dragnet movie, the "facts and nothing but the facts" and then in a separate judicial section, the clemency or sentencing. The facts come before the sentencing...at least that is the way the texts teach it.

To do otherwise is to run the car off the tracks, or run the TV with the audio track off kilter---we have run amuck. That is how I see it.

Mailbag: Bear Trader: Energy: Coal Gassification clarified

Observer wrote to Bear Trader:

Recently I came upon an article about the gassification of oil, and it appears there is a new plant that can do this. I wonder about how this would stack up in your analysis of energy efficiency. Warren Buffett is betting big bucks on the Great Northern Railway, and there has been strong movement or support in coal stocks or MLP in coal and natural resources---I wonder if coal is moving to the forefront, as corn, wind, and sun appear not to have the numbers come out for a decent return. What is your analysis??

Bear Trader Wrote:

Coal gasification, natural gas, oil, coal, coal derived liquids, nuclear, and all of the green "renewable" delusions have to be individually analyzed because over time they are all fungible.

"Fungible?" you ask. Indeed. The chemistry of "synthetic" production of hydrocarbons has been well understood for a hundred years. No real improvement can be expected over the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis used by the Third Reich seventy years ago and by Sasol today (Sasol makes gas and oil from coal and at other locations makes liquid hydrocarbons from natural gas. The process used is the same, differing only in details related to feedstocks.) So, you can make gas, oil, and coal interchangeably from gas, oil, or coal.

Current state of natural gas:

Gas well output in relatively impermeable geologic strata (the gas has to flow through the pores in the rock to get to the well bottom; there is a lot of gas in rock that doesn't flow enough gas to pay for the drilling) has been improved by forcing extreme pressure oil down the well (20 to 100 Tons per square inch). The rock breaks along sedimentary layers, oil creeps along these cracks, forcing them further open. This is an expensive process.

Lots of natural gas drillers put this brand new, just available tech into effect in 2008 as natural gas rose to $13.50. This resulted in massive increase in natural gas supply as these new wells came on line at nearly all the same time. The well drillers had to sell the gas for whatever they could get to keep the banks from taking everything, and now the natural gas price is about $5.75. The thing to remember here is that this deep rock hydraulic fracturing technology cannot break even with $5.75 gas; more like $10.00. One must realize that these wells won't flow for very long without a lot more hydraulic fracturing being done on them, and that won't last all that long either, since these wells simply have less natural gas per unit of ground area than we are used to. New wells will have to be drilled more often and over a larger area to maintain a constant output. Expensive.

So, I think Wall Street is wrong, and will be surprised by a sooner than expected rise in natural gas prices. Perhaps the equilibrium price is double the present price. Perhaps the peak will be three times. This assumes a continuation of the present U-6 unemployment rate of 18%. If times are better demand will be higher and so will peak prices.

Current situation of oil:

The most important factor is East Asia and other emerging markets. They have been exporting increasingly heavily in recent years, have more dollars, and more dollars to spend as a result, so being "more wealthy" in dollars means they find oil less expensive over time compared to us here in the USA. As a result their increase in oil consumption as a percentage over time is something like two or three times the USA - and I am including Uganda, Somalia, et al., in my calculations. Remember that China buys more cars every year than does the USA, and that China and India combined buy more than the G-7. Oil consumption is rising inevitably. Reserves coming on line are increasingly difficult to produce, under miles of ocean and rock, in the Arctic, and in the most extravagantly politically unstable places (notice how the Chinese deal with this in the Sudan).

The USA will have less and less influence over oil prices as both pricing and political power wane. The next upswing in oil prices will simply have to be lived with. Currently oil is about $80, Coby-Lamson thinks there will be a downswing followed by $100 / barrel next year. Could easily be. That's about $3.40 / gallon.

Nuclear: Cannot be increased rapidly. Lots of political opposition, rather mindless, Yahoo sort. (Swift, of course.)

Renewables: When output, initial cost, and maintenance cost are figured in, including grid improvements, (the necessary "smart grid" will become obsolete about every five - seven years due to technological change) simply cost more in fossil and nuclear energy (and human) than they replace. The only exception is properly done satellite solar power (which both Japan and China are working on seriously. Nero fiddles while Rome burns.)

Getting into Warren Buffet's head:

The purchase of the Burlington Northern - Sante Fe Railroad is a much bigger deal than just controlling northern tier coal. It means Buffet combined with the Union Pacific, controls trans-continental shipping. Chew on that one for a while. Not likely you will see price wars from those two.

The Word on the Street is that Buffet is going to take Goldman-Sachs private in 2010. See


(Kass sees Israel making attack on Iranian nuclear weapon project sites by summer, causing heavy shock to USA economy; in this case I personally expect Iran to try to block Straits of Hormuz, that the US Navy gets involved with a large chance of loss of major US Navy ships. Certainly Ahmadinejad is figuring to try, and has had decades to put multiple plans in place. Real war. Maybe a few nuked cities here in the USA, certainly threats thereof.)

Remember that Enron and Goldman are/were big fans of "cap and trade", figuring to make hundreds and hundreds of billions profit a year trading CO2 rights. Now Goldman should emerge the game-controlling player in cap-and-trade. Buffet figures to make money on coal and coal cap-and-trade financial operations at the same time. After all, the use of coal is going to increase over time, and sizably, unless the politicians are willing to go to rotating blackouts. Electricity, because of cap-and-trade more than any other factor, will increase in price two to four times (in constant dollars) in the next five to ten years. Buffet will make an absolute fortune, just immense, maybe the first trillionaire if he lives so long.

2009 Memories: "NO END AROUND":;;;Evansville School Board: 10/12/2009: Mr. Pierick speaks

Ed note: One of the key things that stands out in the stories from 2009 from Evansville, is the hazards of politicians doing an "END AROUND" from the budget process----Mr. Pierick warns of this on this video. The $600,000 wind turbine project of the city was such an end around for the city budget. The theft of the computer equipment from the school is what the end around looks on the expense side. The end around on the capital expenditure is just as hazardous as day to day expenses. Make a note of it.)

Video: Mr. Michael Pierick, spoke about his analysis of the proposed purchase of land on 2nd Street. He concluded that this proposal would not have been included in the budget if it had gone through the process because there were other items that were more important--it was a tough budget decison but his vote was NO.

End of the Windmill Wannabees----not to uplift but to save money: Mass: Windwatch

WESTPORT — After plans fell through for a 120-foot wind turbine behind Town Hall, the Alternative Energy Committee has focused its attention on other locations in town where a larger turbine could be built.

The committee is considering locations in Portsmouth, R.I., and Hull for construction of a turbine. It is also looking at Dartmouth, where the town is planning construction of two massive towers at a wastewater treatment plant off Chase Road. Sites under consideration are the landfill on Hixbridge Road and town-owned land behind the fire station under construction west of Route 88.

Locations near the ocean would be best for energy generation, but no specific sites are being considered, said David Dionne, chairman of the Alternative Energy Committee, which is working with a consultant. “It’s a no-brainer to think of getting closer to the water,” he said.

An effort to build a turbine to power Town Hall began after voters approved $63,400 for such a project at the May 2007 Town Meeting, a decision that the Finance Committee and Board of Selectmen advised against. For nearly two years, the Alternative Energy Committee and turbine supporters fought to get a contract signed by selectmen and a Plymouth contractor.

That proposal came to a quiet end this spring when the committee voted to return the money to the town’s general fund. Dionne said at the time that the committee had its sights set on a larger project. “All the stars are aligned at this moment to do something substantial,” he said then.

A turbine proposal would likely receive more support now. Selectmen Chairman Steven Ouellette said the biggest complaint he heard about the plan was that the proposed turbine wasn’t large enough, though it was the largest turbine the town could receive a grant for at the time.

A proposal for a 10-kilowatt turbine was more of a “demonstration,” Dionne said, meant to showcase the town’s commitment to going green rather than being a money-saving measure. “Today, the ground has shifted beneath our feet. Everyone is building much, much larger, commercial-size ones,” he said.

Portsmouth’s turbines dwarf the size of the one proposed in Westport. Portsmouth Abbey’s tower is 660 kilowatts and 240 feet high. One built by the town is 336 feet high and 1.5 megawatts — a capacity 150 times larger than Westport’s would have had.

Two Dartmouth turbines would be 470 feet high, each with a 1.65-megawatt capacity.
Wind data gathered from a test tower west of Lees Market on Main Road showed that the two sites under consideration off Hixbridge Road have energy production potential at least as good as Portsmouth’s, Dionne said.

One obstacle is cost, which is estimated at $3 million to $4 million. The Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust offers $570,000 for public-entity turbines more than 600 kilowatts if a project meets feasibility guidelines. Spokeswoman Emily Dahl said the trust has seen “a lot of interest” in so-called community-scale turbines, those that produce more than 100 kilowatts.
