"Ain't gonna be no rematch," Apollo Creed. "Don't want one," Rocky Balboa.  These lines and characters are from the movie "Rocky." Its brutal iconic fight is a metaphor for Mississippi Power's...

“Who you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?" This was Groucho Marx's retort when caught (frequently) in a compromising situation. He got it from Chico, one of the five Marx brothers, who were the kings of slapstick comedy...

There are good reasons to be concerned that the Kemper County Lignite Plant under construction by Mississippi Power could explode if started up. So, will it ever start up? Probably not. Here's why.

Construction of the experimental...

The Tuscaloosa Marine Shale formation lies 10,000 to 15,000 feet below the surface of the southwest corner of Mississippi and extends west and south into  Louisiana. It contains billions of barrels of crude oil. Its existence has been...

A myth is a widely held false belief. An ancient Chinese myth says the world is flat and rests on the back of a great turtle which in turn rests on a greater turtle, and so on. It's turtles all the way down. Today this means endless...

The possibility of bankruptcy for Mississippi Power came up in a discussion last month with reporters and editors who follow the company's Kemper County lignite project. One reporter said its Southern Company parent should pay the $5...

Kemper is Mississippi Power's $5.8 billion experimental plant to produce electricity from lignite (low grade coal). It is under construction, behind schedule, and way over budget. It was supposed to start up in May.  Rates increased 18...

A better economic development policy

I recently wrote about Mississippi's efforts to create jobs by backing new technology failures such as Kior which received a $75 million interest free loan from the state. It was supposed to...

Kior, a state-funded green energy project, recently announced the shutdown of its Columbus, Miss. plant. It was supposed to produce gasoline and diesel from pine trees. This is the sixth state-funded technology startup that has failed.
