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

Itís a clever propaganda piece to make the political Right wing look stupid.

Itís a beautiful Ďred herringí (if you enjoy herring).

Q: Want to know what causes Ďpeak oilí ?

A: Supply and demand.

Q: Guess who controls most of the worldís 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 1970ís 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.

Růmulo Betancourt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Q: Can you guess which country? (Hint: Itís 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?

Donít you just LOVE OPEC?

Donít you wish you could have your own cartel and control the world?

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.
