Blunt Force Trauma

To add to Elaine's article is this large posting on the Oil Drum:

Blunt Force Trauma

Also...if I'm correct, Russia has the world's second largest fields and they too have peaked:

Fears that Russian oil output has hit its peak (April 15, 2008)

Shawntoh

I note no one in the media has reported that Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) once said:
"I do not fear poverty for you but your riches"

--As told to Shawntoh by Brother Muhammad Nasr

Great wealth is indeed very dangerous. It destroys the soul from within. Unless one figures out how to turn the tables! This means sharing the wealth with others in a noble way, not on palace building or power tripping.


A delicate matter, that is! A very delicate matter. Many lottery winners go right off the cliff. Many end up bankrupt. Ditto with people who inherit a lot of loot. I have seen this close up, very close up.

GK

I think history is pretty much 100% conclusive that given power, people ALWAYS end up believing they are gods. And then begin the descent into looting and killing their subjects with impunity.

And yet we continue to give people enormous power. We need to get back to the 10 amendment and local rule.

Anyone who suggests consolidating power ala Lisbon Treaty, OPEC, Federal Government, Federal Reserve, World anything, etc should be jail for insanity.

History is absolute on this.

Correct, GK.

For me what confirms your argument on what the Saudis can deliver, who is making the promises.

It is only (highly-paid)flunkeys and minions who make the promises. These promises are not worth spit until one of the Royal Family makes publicly promises it.

When I used the search terms "king saudi arabia promises more oil" on Google, this page was at the top of the list, congrats Elaine.

Wow. Thanks, Bokonon!

Yes, only when the King himself says something, it STILL can be a lie! They think nothing about lying to 'Crusaders' which is what they call us. Actually, the also call us 'Infidels' and think we are way outside of the circle of goodness that is Islam.

So we take what they say with a huge grain of salt the size of a mountain.

"There is a natural aristocracy among men. The grounds of this are virtue and talents... There is also an artificial aristocracy founded on wealth and birth, without either virtue or talents; for with these it would belong to the first class... The artificial aristocracy is a mischievous ingredient in government, and provision should be made to prevent its ascendency." --Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 1813

Eleine,

Please tell us your opinion about LS9.com. Talk about the goals of this company in the next post about energy, ok ?

GK

So LS9 basically creates new bacterial life forms to make petroleum. What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

Wouldn't it be cool if it could turn any carbon source, like a carbon-based life form, into fuel?

How many private jets could you fuel from the carbon in the 5 billion people they plan to depopulate?

Hey, It is probably going to make Gasoline so cheap you won't have to meter it! Just like NUCLEAR ENERGY in the 1970S!!!

Dial your Nokia 6680 1-800-GET-CLUE.

In some cases, LS9’s researchers used standard recombinant DNA techniques to insert genes into the microbes. In other cases, they redesigned known genes with a computer and synthesized them. The resulting modified bacteria make and excrete hydrocarbon molecules that are the length and molecular structure the company desires.
