Google looking to invest in energy sector: report
(Reuters) - Internet search and advertising leader Google Inc is increasingly looking at the energy sector as a potential business opportunity, the New York Times reported.
Engineers at Google are hoping to soon unveil tools that could help consumers make better decisions about their energy use, the paper said.
To support these efforts, Google has hired engineers who are conducting research in renewable energy, former government energy officials, scientists and even a former NASA astronaut, whose experience with electronic gadgets is being put to use to develop energy tools for consumers, the Times said.
It added that the company's philanthropic unit, Google.org is considering large investments in projects that generate electricity from renewable sources.
"We want to make money, and we want to have impact," Dan Reicher, director for climate change and energy initiatives at Google.org told the Times.
But with a recession looming and oil prices dropping, investors might pressure Google to curtail its clean energy ambitions, the paper said.
Calls to Google seeking comment were not immediately returned.

am starting new investment company
plan on going public
plan on making my inside and outside investors wealthy
company's mission statement:
1. The First Individual And/Or Institution Of Any Kind That So Much As
Hints At Cooking The Balance Sheets Will Be Arrested On The Spot.
2. So Will The Second.. and so on.
3. I will identify any competitors or customers in any and every
industry (including the banking industry) that are cooking their
balance sheets and have them arrested on the spot.
I know a thing or two about enterprise corruption;-)
not sure now
why: usually the economy needs xmas (holiday) shoppers and not freaked
I hadn't taken that into effect when I made the prediction
i would b surprised if a bottom (there it is again) occured before Q2-
All I can say is wow!
The folks on this thread have been stumbling onto some great information via their research. There has been correspondence with R~~ in this regards and he is pleasantly surprised with the foundation that has started to grow and the honest effort on everyone's part to be more informed in the world of Enterprise Corruption...
One thing i can't help but notice is how so many of the original crowd (and some new ones) are starting to think like wise investors and businesspeople.
The Novartis conversation is a good example.
And.. we are all investors.. whether we want to be.. or not.
...and I agree....Kudos to you all!
There have been some great investigation going on and digging up some dirt in spots that before seemed mundane. The VW connection/Pope from Nikki, Logos is on the tail of Navartis, deuterium_is_heavy with his Legatus and TB Devilrays and NT and their seeming endless connections to 9/11, EWS eats Carbon Credits for breakfast, sammy has got the future worker bees main number, Agent Smith is back with on target, O has found the Legatus/Greenspan/VW connection, Intrigued By Reinhardt is keeping a close eye on the "morality" plays, WaWaWa is leading the charge against ND completion date or any other completion date he/she can put to words, hilly7 is onto Dubai, Steelrat is catchin on quick, SY5551 has been fielding this from all corners non stop, Names goes Here has every tax haven corner...cornered!, Terry_Wrist (not his real name) is being watched closely for his stalking capabilities and of course his continued contributions to every aspect of the thread ;-), investor is still pounding on R~~'s door wanting in..lol (soon), and Infohunter has everything documented in a nice 5 million page pdf and DavidLightman83 has it on video..
I also see that Kanigo2 has put an effort in finding some debasement connections in the precious metal industries...good work..we can use someone with his skepticism to keep us all strait..he has always appreciated the "cyclical" connections that R~~ has put forward.
Watching ATS and their threads are just as important. There is no need to concern ourselves with the petty things that happens with competitive sites...we are all going to either win together or we will fail together...but we have to work together. They have some great minds over their and JustyC and Shermanium et al. have been instrumental in keeping posts flowing between sites. ARSfan, surfing guru, Nightwatchman et al...great job.
...and to the AC's out there...we see you! (AnneC ;-) To the lurkers and voyeuristic seers out their jump in any time.
The base is growing and the knowledge that we will discover will be insurmountable to our future.
...and thank you R~~
Hey, just wanted to post this chart here. It's the stock market in the US since 1800 adjusted for inflation. I have had this for awhile and it confirms Rs prediction of Dow
A poster on the chat last night (Durtanium_is_heavy) said that Legatus is connected with the Tampa Devil Rays and that because of that they will win the world series...
...Than you have this last night..
Bud Selig pulls a first ever in the World series when the Phillies were winning.
Could it be true? Will the Devil Rays win because of Legatus?
THE world’s bank — the International Monetary Fund — is going BUST and must be bailed out, Gordon Brown warned last night.
The IMF has only got £150billion left, it emerged — with dozens of countries queuing up for major handouts to keep afloat.
The PM urged cash-rich China and oil sheikhs to give hundreds of billions so the IMF can keep giving out funds — and stop it going bust.
Mr Brown said: “This may not be enough. It is becoming increasingly clear to me we cannot delay and we now need substantial additional resources in addition to the $250billion the IMF already has available.
“The big surplus countries — those that have got big reserves — are in a position to help most and we will be urging them to do so.”
The IMF’s role is to help countries stave off bankruptcy. It handed over £16.5billion to Ukraine this week and Hungary is also desperate for funds.
Dozens of others — especially in eastern Europe — will need big bailouts because of the global slump.
World leaders fear a Russian takeover move unless they are able to survive. China is cash-rich, having spent ten years banking profits in a special fund rather than investing them abroad.
Oil-rich countries in the Gulf are also able to plough funds into the IMF. The UK supplies five per cent of IMF cash, compared with China’s 3.7 per cent.
Last night Mr Brown held talks in Paris with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who backed the PM in urging the reshaping of the IMF.
Mr Sarkozy said: “We will work hand in glove to get out of this terrible crisis.”
Mr Brown said: “Our first priority is to stop the contagion to other countries, including in eastern Europe, where there are problems emerging and action must be taken.”
