Red Right Returning

The energy story of the year!  Maybe it will be coal?  Yeah, coal.

You would be surprised what my regular reading list includes, but PilotOnline has a story today:  Coal ships create a traffic jam on Hampton Roads waters.Where is all the coal being loaded in Hampton Roads coming from? I once had to inspect a coal ship loading down there... in a white uniform no less.  Not the greatest idea in the world. 

and you thought this was going to be about shale.  How's Marcel doing?

Somebody made enough money on coal to fund a hockey arena.

Also, why would the Navy be inspecting coal ship loading? That would seem like a Coast Guard thing if it involved the military at all.

That's interesting. Similarly, here's a blog post from our trip to Australia

And Soviets didn't invent coal fire until Rosenberg stole the secret from Los Alamos?
