Re: Advances in Clean Tech + Tax Policy

We have decades of experience with all those things. And still we have various nimrods torching themselves and their homes and blowing stuff up.... There is something like a century of experience with lead acid batteries and the USN submarine service [more]

Re: Advances in Clean Tech + Tax Policy

Of course it "can". Strictly a matter of economics and risk. If my total electric bill is $100/mo or about 1200 a year, (very close)would I invest 35,000 every 10 years plus oh another 20,000 every 20 years for cells? Perhaps if I am a true [more]

Well, lets put it to the test and drop the subsidies!!!!

Re: Privatized gains, socialized losses

And you believe Solar and Wind are immune from similar "social costs"?

There are some interesting abandoned solar sites in the Mojave and abandoned wind towers in S. California passes you might find scenic

Re: Salesforce CEO salary freeze

Unfortunately, these kinds of evaluations seem to me to be mostly after the fact. I saw no useful numerical facts or statistics in the WSJ article. Can you point me at one particular or several citations of specific prediction prior to negative [more]

Re: Salesforce CEO salary freeze

And, so I must ask since no DATA is forthcoming- WHAT? exactly is heroine Minnow's correlation with results? Or any of this for that matter.... can I as an investor peer into her or anyone's pronouncements or dare I say it PREDICTIONS... and find [more]

Re: 100% renewable energy? We have the power.

Doggonne it, now I wish I had taken a picture and saved it of the oversize flatbed truck hauling a wind turbine blade down I-84 in the Columbia gorge belching black diesel exhaust, to build a "renewable, emission-free" wind farm. A pic [more]

Re: Deutsche Bank on ESG/SRI

Nope....just seemed very useful to me.. Holy Grail in fact ;-) Ok now I'm teasing you. My one hangup is how does one "real world" utilize the information predictably? Whose ESG standards did they screen? DB's? Morning star? Larry Moe and [more]

Re: Morningstar Sustainability Ratings

I certainly hope so...it would be a remarkably useful yardstick no matter what the result. If one could say with confidence that "on average I will lose out to (name an index) by no more than 1%, and I might do better" it would do wonders [more]

Re: Morningstar Sustainability Ratings

Mike: Am I missing something here or is this a VERY circular review. It seems the only correlation is with ANALYST ratings not with performance..... So if one analytical measure (I use the term loosely) is correlated with Analyst ratings has anything [more]

There are many reasons from the dramatic (waves,storms) to the pedestrian and arcane. Every year dozens of boats are lost to snow and ice loading sinking them at the dock. The case of a mystery dock sinking was solved by the evaluation of a corroded [more]

Which is actually on its way to being fixed by reversion to the mean- all of the rain that has been falling in most areas including snow in the sierras....not enough yet, but likely to be enough if it keeps up...

I do not see however, WHOSE ESG criteria were used in the study. This would be quite fascinating to me.
