Thanks to the kindess of strangers, blogging goes uninterrupted, as Tony Vahl has come to my rescue. Tony is a serial blogger and the author of the off-beat Dream Seeker book series.
His own highly regarded site, The Daily Skew, is now also available for monthly subscription on the Kindle. Today's guest blog marks his second for me, as I am currently under general anesthesia, in recovery, dead or recuperating at home.
Maybe all three, if I hedged properly.
Seeing that my last post here did not result in the death of the lowly regarded TheAcsMan blog, I decided to come back and share two things I learned this week while listening to Bloomberg Radio and reading a Seeking Alpha missive.
To make this post a little more relevant to the legion of TheAcsMan blog readers (all 39 of you), I will go ahead and compare what I learned with what George has said about the topic in the past. Okay, so what did I learn this week listening to Bloomberg? Here goes:
1. The United States has a twenty year competitive edge on the rest of the world when it comes to Natural Gas resources
I know there's a flatulence joke in here somewhere, but I'm going to leave that alone. I'm reminded of the scene in Star Wars where the Storm Trooper says, "It's just a gas tick," on the closed captioning. A co-worker once swore to me the Trooper actually said, "I'm just a little gassy," as Obi-Wan scampered off.
Anyway, a few Talking Heads this week talked about how demand for oil is leveling off, how the US will be a net exporter of oil in 20 years, and how auto makers are eager to offer natural gas-fueled vehicles to consumers, even with an option to go back to regular 87 octane at the flip of a switch.
So, tell Clint Eastwood the U.S. has the advantage in the second half, as we enter into the post-Madonna era.
