Tax loss. Good stuff to lose money on.

Good thing it was only other people’s money that they lost.

Gee... they could have invested that $100 million in drilling for oil and made a killing.

They should fire the accountant that said it was profitable, but my suspicions say they gambled on some big government low-interest green money that never materialized.

If that surprises anyone here, they need to turn in their Freeper posting privileges.

It was not going to work without a copious water supply. Those H’s have to come from somewhere when making hydrocarbons. An efficient algae that would grow in sea water would have been a major coup here. I don’t think it ever happened.

Carbon credits never took flight and that made pond scum just pond scum.

If they had hired me, I could have helped them lose only $90 million.

I guess a swimming pool that turns green can no longer be considered an asset.

Disappointing. I love diesel motors, was hoping this algae stuff would work. Much smarter than turning our food into biofuel. I’ve owned a good bit of XOM stock for years. Pays dividends and rises predictably with the price of oil.

I’ll bet they did the algae experiment for PR, knowing it wouldn’t work.

Honestly, I don’t know why they would even try; because of their success, Exxon will always be THE top target of capitalism-haters, no matter how much good they do.

You could insert the word “quietly” into any sentence in the article. We won’t see this information in any MSM story.
