Wrath, you Neanderthal! There is a very real Global Market and that is where Mobile Exxon and all the other O&G&C Companies have taken their product to sell to the highest bidder...

If you want to control O & G & C it must be Nationalized like the Arab states have done-only make it belong to the US... Then the US would make all the profit.. But as long as these Companies are private--they are free to take their product to the highest bidder on the Global Market...

I can't explain the Global Market to You any more--either get it this time or forget it...

Before someone blames the recent Colorado flash floods on climate change: "The Rocky Mountains have long been prone to flash floods. Native Americans warned Boulder's founders of flooding, according to historical accounts. The U.S. Geological Survey has mapped the remnants of ancient flash floods all along the Colorado Front Range, where steep mountain canyons send debris pouring into town, along with the rocks that give Boulder its name."

The average life expectancy of a human being without electricity–and there are 1.4 billion in this category–is 48 years old. In the last 30 years, thanks to a tripling or more of electricity production in countries throughout the developing world, mostly using coal, over 2.5 billion people have added 6 years to their life expectancy. Think about someone you love that you lost early, and think about what 6 more years would mean. Now multiply that by 2.5 billion people.

Climate change IS real. It gets warmer in some places, cooler in others, sometime the change lasts for thousands of years and other times only a few hundred. We will do what man has done since he first set foot on this planet and that is ADAPT. It is the most economical solution.

Climate change very serious?? maybe not.....Global warming is just HALF what we said: World's top climate scientists admit computers got the effects of greenhouse gases wrong

Leaked report reveals the world is warming at half the rate claimed by IPCC in 2007 Scientists accept their computers 'may have exaggerated'

the leaked report makes the extraordinary concession that the world has been warming at only just over half the rate claimed by the IPCC in its last assessment,published in 2007. They admit large parts of the world were as warm as they are now for decades at a time between 950 and 1250 AD – centuries before the Industrial Revolution, and when the population and CO2 levels were both much lower. The IPCC admits that while computer models forecast a decline in Antarctic sea ice, it has actually grown to a new record high. Again, the IPCC cannot say why. (UK DailyMail Online) 9/14/2013

mkhunt “Carcinogens in drinking water is a threat to everyone.”

And yet you can’t name a specific example of a single water well ANYWHERE in the Ohio Valley that has been polluted with carcinogens from fracking, after THOUSANDS of wells have been drilled and fracked here. Some threat.

mkhunt “Cancer has become big, big business there”

I have news for you, Chicken Little. Cancer is big business EVERYWHERE. But unless you can prove a single case was caused by the gas industry, you STILL got nothin’.

Keep squawking, loons. Since squawking is all you got.

Cowtransplant you talk like a TAKER not a MAKER.

Because MAKERS know that every dollar the GOV takes is one less dollar a MAKER can use to create business and jobs.

All you ever built was field of cow pies.

this is not about politics and this is not about competition between companies. This is about the rights of American families to live and thrive. Carcinogens in drinking water is a threat to everyone.There is a breaking scandal in Texas about Dr. Ronald DePino. Cancer has become big, big business there with families having to put up their life-savings to even be seen by doctors, false reports on drug studies and guess what!gross, monster sized offices and salaries. Fracking the system!Greed never rests.Enforce the law. We are THE PEOPLE the Constitution was written to protect not the few who prey on the helpless and desperate.Constitution Day, September is for you!!God Bless America

All you people who want nuclear power look at Japan whom everyone said was the safest in the world and now tainted water is going all the way around the world and the junk from the aftermath. The world is warming and cooling just as recent as early 80s when there were far more polluters we were worried of an ice age, and if fact Europe had mini ice age. When you call nuclear as clean energy have to have heads examined and if there was no climate change we would still have glaciers in Ohio valley and a 2 mile high 1 in Central Park in New York city. ! volcano eruption in early 80s in the Philippines spewed more crap into air than the entire time from ind. revolution on and add 30-50 years more because of the ways things have changed, cleaner coal, smaller cars ,anti pollution things that we have done but places in 3rd world China India and many others haven't. So wake up and stop saying that nuclear power is clean and windmills are killing whole species of bats in Ca.

Wow, Professor Wraith, you really let me have it, I think. "You didnt't built THAT"? Have you been into the Mescaline again? By the way, you have no idea how many jobs I've created. I can assure you that I haven't killed as many men as Murray.

I can tell how serious climate change really is by looking at Al Jazeera Gore’s carbon-spewing jet and Al Jazeera Gore’s carbon-spewing mansion. And the way Al Jazeera Gore sold his carbon credit sales scam channel to the Middle Eastern Kings of Carbon. Apparently Al Jazeera Gore was smart enough to know you green loon Inconvenient Truthers wouldn’t even notice.

Mr Murray sounds like a spoiled brat. Sure his industry is in jeopardy but I bet he would say a word if Coal was going to replace gas. And i highly doubt his employee's mean as much to him as he say's, he is all about greed and money

Folks: climate change is very real and very serious. Look for international bans on coal plants going forward. They are a major source of CO2 that can be eliminated now with gas, nuclear and alternatives.

dy: Yes dozens of new reactors are under construction world wide. The Chinese have a very slick new prefab unit. Nuclear is the cheapest and cleanest power available.

Mr. Murray is very correct. Gas will replace coal for power generation globally; along with additional nuclear. The USA will benefit from LNG exports. This is very similar to the shift from coal to gas for home heating; for the same reasons.

centrist, Look-up the graduation rates and costs to graduate from 4-year colleges and get back to us. BTW, 37% graduate in 4 years and it takes 58% 6 years to complete. That is of those that receive a degree. Check-out those that start compared to those that finish a degree.....

Centrist: With one college degree in his pocket, one of us here went to work underground decades ago, as a proud member of the UMWA, in the OV Coal mines, and found great satisfaction, and a darned good living, there. While working as a coal miner, he even earned a second degree. And, he worked underground with people as diverse as retired military personnel and church ministers supplementing their incomes. It's a hard life, but a good one. The work can be satisfying, interesting and at times exciting. Troll: Thanks.

At least beyond what your mind can conceive, Choker. How many jobs did you create today? Yes, your morning bowel movement does create one ten-thousandth of a Government sanitation worker job, so you can count that. LOL

Centrist, so you're saying you know a dozen miners and they're all dunces. I'm sure they think as much of you, too. LOL

Maybe miners like the pay? Like the challenges of the job? Like their coworkers? Like earning their keep by providing an honest day's work? No, Centrists know they're only miners because they couldn't get jobs as community organizers. LOL
