    Issa joins bipartisan committee to fight climate change. He must be terrified about his seat.

    Looks like Tillerson had a secret email account to discuss climate change issues while at Exxon, and failed to disclose it while under investigation.

    Is that why Preet (the US attorney) didn't resign? I wonder...

    LOL.

    They know climate change is real. They just don't want to impact their bottom line by admitting it.

    I will never understand how they don't see this as one of the largest opportunities we've seen in energy since they stopped sending gasoline to the flare.

    There is a trillion-dollar market out there for clean energy. Their R&D and M&A departments should be working overtime to get this stuff to market. Be the first before China, Japan, Germany, and France beat us to it.

    Trillions of dollars.

    The oil companies do a lot of R&D on clean energy, but they don't want their current revenue flows disrupted until the last possible moment either. So they keep their climate research confidential.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Easily. Presumably they believe that if they're not first they'll just use their government ownership, er, influence to buy a piece of the action. And in the meantime, they still own the greatest game on the planet and they don't want to mess with it.

    The Dutch East India company is estimated to have been worth between 5 and 10 trillion (adjusted) dollars at its height. If a company actually made THE breakthrough in clean energy and if it was not possible to reserve-engineer it, it would rival if not surpass that.

    Fusion is the holy grail. Make that and license it and you're probably worth more than the next five people combined.

    My God, I was addicted to the first version of SimCity. I think I played 24-hours straight once on nothing but beer and circus peanuts.

    I still have a soft spot for low density industrial zoning.
