It's kind of scary isn't it, with china and india's energy demands increasing too.

...I thought PEAK OIL was a lubricant being hocked by that cute Indy-car driver, Danca-something (wink,wink)!!!

LOL;

Ok, I get the potential for unicorn tears. But the question is, how do we harvest them?

The Rooster 01-09-2011 11:17 PM

Pull really hard on the "corn", that'll make em cry.

It’s a clever propaganda piece to make the political Right wing look stupid.

It’s a beautiful ‘red herring’ (if you enjoy herring).

Q: Want to know what causes ‘peak oil’ ?

A: Supply and demand.

Q: Guess who controls most of the world’s supply of oil?

A: OPEC

Q: What is OPEC?

A: An international cartel.

Q: What is a cartel?

A: A combination of independent commercial enterprises or nations to limit competition.

Q: Guess what happened in the 1970’s when OPEC refused to increase production?

A: Oil shortages.

Q: Why did they do it?

A: To drive prices UP (among other things).

Q: Guess who founded OPEC?

A: A Socialist from a South American country.

Rómulo Betancourt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Q: Can you guess which country? (Hint: It’s a member of OPEC.)

*****

Of course the propagandistic cartoon video won't mention any of these things. The primary purpose of the cartoon video is political, including that of denouncing Fox News, which it mentions by name.

Do you believe everything you hear in a cartoon video?

Is America to blame for what OPEC does?

Don’t you just LOVE OPEC?

Don’t you wish you could have your own cartel and control the world?

gone-ot 01-09-2011 11:51 PM

...you mean to tell me that OPEC isn't an acronym for Other People Enjoying (our) Cash?

What I wish is if you weren't such a broken record. If you have data and not mud/conspiracy theories, then bring it.

The question is about peak oil.

Your request is denied. If you don't like what I post, then don't read it. No one is forcing you to read it.

Interesting how the opposition always is the first to mention the word "conspiracy". Where was anything said about a conspiracy in this thread? Or is that just a hot button buzzword of the Left that is triggered automatically?

Lack of tolerance for disagreement is the hallmark of authoritarianism.
