Another company setting an example and the economics of it make perfect sense.  Why not when you can get it this cheap vs. the alternative.

The Mexico announcement is interesting because the country held two renewable energy auctions in 2016 that got very favorable terms. A year ago, bids were announced at 5.07 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity and by October bids averaged 3.35 cents per kWh for clean energy. This compares to average retail electricity prices of about 12 cents per kWh, so renewable energy is very economical for big companies.

Reports are 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched against Shayrat Air Base.

Google earth imagery clearly shows the potential direct-mission related airfield targets:

-40 bunkered concreted aircraft shelters



....each shelter potentially protecting one Sukoi SU-24M swing-wing tactical bomber aircraft


-eight bunkered ammo/chemical storage units

-a base chemical transshipment facility

-a likely weapons fuzing building

-and the base HQ/admin building

We’ll see what the bomb damage assessment photos reveal regarding damage achieved with the 1,000 pound warheads, and if the Russians managed to give their Syrian allies adequate heads up on the impending attack.

The strike occurred early Friday morning Syrian time, on the Muslim Sabbath.

From a former GI bomb damage assessment professional perspective, Russian commercial TV drone coverage of Shayrat airfield is indicating mixed military results. While observed damage to numerous aircraft shelters is impressive and revealing, there is a concerning number of definite-missed impact craters visible on the Russian TV drone coverage.

The Russian defense ministry is reporting minimal physical damage. Tho, from a professional perspective physical military damage and geo-political damage are usually two entirely different creatures.

Well, if Trump took credit for Jan and Feb when it was around 250,000 each, he surely owns March:

US created only 98,000 jobs in March, vs 180,000 expected

Ok... let's do this.... Instead of..."Well the previous administration started it under their watch so they should get the credit...." Why don't we follow the rule...


"IF IT HAPPENS UNDER THE PRESENT ADMINISTRATION...good or bad... IT IS THEIRS TO CLAIM/OWN."  But, as always, we give the good to the previous and the bad to the present. We parse this shit all the time and all it does is...hmmmmm NOTHING!!!!

Ok lets give the drop in jobs to Trump... even though lower... some say due to WEATHER and businesses going bankrupt... it is still...to the PLUS. And... the national unemployment number is what... 4.5%...lowest in what.... a decade??? Well we all know the U-3 is the official unemployment rate and the U-6 is a broader calculation but we only hear of the rates maybe 4-7%. The later seems to be the one used to do general rating and lower the number ...the better it is...in all the calculations..so here goes...

https://www.thebalance.com/what-is-the-real-unemployment-rate-3306198

No mater how you look at it, this... seems the Trump Admin has started the growth back again... from  Obama's start at say 54% down to 49% average of U-3/U-6. So...who takes "credit" for that??? And... it this accurate/ or do we argue about that as well? Tiring at best... frustrating at the worst.. >:(

The average price of coal exports per ton was $67 recently so that would equate to $26 million in exports to China.  In the most recent EIA report the US consumed 223 million short tons in Q3, 2016 so this equates to 0.18% of Q3 US consumption, although more, not exactly moving the needle.  To put that in perspective we imported $482 BILLION in Chinese goods in 2016 alone which is around $1500 for every man, women and child living in the US every single year.

Navy should return to 'goddamn steam' on Carrier. 
To borrow a phrase: it just can't get any sillier.

The polarization is just getting worse an will continue to get worse. This will all happen before it gets really bad. While social media can be a lot of fun and informative , the number of bully pulpits is growing in both camps and apparently so is the number of parrots.

Agreed.

Although - these words keep coming out of his mouth. My own thought is that people elect their idea of someone, then that someone starts doing their thing and shit gets real - like the example I posted above. Thing is though - any number of politicians could say equally inane things, it's just that they don't make it to print. 

I'm beginning to think the prospect of President Pence is more likely every day. I Googled betting odds of this, and one betting house in Ireland has the odds at 4/6 it'll happen. (Not that I put much stock in Irish betting houses.)

The idea of Pence as President bugs me even more though. He has a record . . . and in terms of exercising personal freedoms - it ain't good . . . .

I didn't like the options much last November. I have a feeling 2020 is going to be one of the most entertaining (yet frightening) elections we may ever see.

You know when Fox News has low poll numbers for a Republican they are actually really really low.
