Obama’s War on Coal will decimate the lives of poorer Americans working in the mines. But not to worry Obama wants to replace them with green jobs for rich kids…
President Obama is about to make an end run around Congress and sign some executive orders that will virtually doom the lifespan of coal-fired power plants.
But in his effort to clean up the U.S., he’s costing the economy more than it will save.
The temptation of exploiting Arctic oil has drawn China to the global race – and these strategic moves could put the aggressive country in the lead.
As Dr. Kent Moors explains, growing unrest means Pakistan is now ground zero when it comes to energy markets in the Middle East. Read more...
There's an old saying, "The more things change, the more they stay the same."
And modern Russia a perfect example of this saying. And this move to the past autocratic methods is creating a very unstable future for the energy markets.
Dr. Moors explains the warning signs in Moscow that are making energy traders start to worry.
To find out what's happening and what it means to you, read on...
On average it takes 4.4 million gallons of water to “frack” a well. As Dr. Kent Moors explains, that has big consequences for energy prices. Read more...
The "midstream" segment in oil and gas markets is undergoing some very interesting changes these days. It is diversifying in an exciting way for income investors.
MLP "clones" are starting to emerge, controlling more expanded activities and new product-specific focuses that never existed before.
That means brand-new investing opportunities for you.
There's a worldwide race heating up to supply the world with liquefied natural gas (LNG) and right now the U.S. lags far behind.
But that's about to change, with the U.S. expected to go from 0% of global LNG exports today to 9%-12% as early as 2020.
Investors should get ready because certain natural gas stocks will surge along with the exports.
So far, only Cheniere Energy Inc. (NYSE: LNG) is allowed to export LNG out of the U.S. to both free trade and non-free trade agreement (FTA) countries- it hopes to begin exporting in 2015.
And Cheniere's stock has been on a tear since earning that approval.
When the DOE announced the approval of LNG exports from Sabine Pass on May 20, 2011, Cheniere was trading at $7.69. The stock soared over 30% that day, finishing at $10.04, and today trades nearly 301% higher at $30.82.
Now, investors have another chance to profit from an LNG company.
Once again the catalyst will be approval from the DOE to export LNG to non-FTA countries.
And a non-FTA permit is the key with LNG exports.

Paying taxes is about a pleasurable as a root canal. But as Dr. Kent Moors explains, you can ease the pain by investing in Master Limited Partnerships, or MLPs. Here's how.
As the new balance emerges, we will see a realignment of global energy prices. And both the sourcing and use of energy will open up significant opportunities worldwide. Here's what's causing the shift.
Something big unfolded on my trip to Frankfurt last week.
It began with meetings in Germany over natural gas prices. They morphed into a discussion on how government subsidies affect energy prices. Our conversation turned to a recent IMF report that criticized taxes on energy - specifically pre-tax concessions - those provided by governments to producers in oil exporting countries.
That led four of us to drop everything in Germany and fly to Dubai, so we could hash out the matter firsthand with some of the folks responsible for those tax benefits.
What we learned there could change everything in the global energy markets and have huge consequences for energy investors around the world.
Remember, you heard it here first…
Despite its promising future, clean energy stocks have proved to be an investing minefield.
Even China-based clean energy stocks are no longer a safe haven. Yesterday (Monday) Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. (NYSE ADR: STP) defaulted on its debt.
Heavy losses caused by plummeting prices for solar panels - which fell 73% from 2010 to 2012 - left Suntech unable to make the payment on a $541 million bond that was due Friday.
The news caused Suntech stock, already down 80% over the past year, to slip another 10%.
While numerous U.S. renewable energy companies have faltered, most notably the 2011 bankruptcy of solar panel maker Solyndra, Suntech is the first Chinese clean energy company that could go under.
What's new is a reluctance on the part of the Chinese government to keep pouring subsidies into money-losing companies.
