Profit, by Any Other Name Is Still a Profit

<a href="">Reports detail financial costs of CBM restrictions</a><br />n<br />n<blockquote>Separate federal and state reports on a proposed crackdown on coalbed methane pollution say the rule could slow development, potentially costing the industry and state coffers hundreds of millions of dollars.<br />n<br />n….<br />n<br />nThe industry could lose as little as 6 percent of expected profits, or as much as 74 percent, depending upon a number of variables such as natural gas price, the report concluded.</blockquote><br />n<br />nDo you realize that if they lose 6-74% of the profit, they will still profit from this venture? Just not as much as before and they help the environment out. Is this a bad thing? I think not. I am always for a business making a profit but they need to do it in a reasonable, ethical way and polluting our water sheds and removing all our scarce drinking water isn't very ethical.<br />n<br />n<b>Remind people that profit is the difference between revenue and expense. This makes you look smart. Scott Adams</b>
