Our social order will find it as difficult to give up oil as addicts find giving up narcotics. This is not to say it cannot be done. Only to say it requires decision and determination.The left are very funny in that they think you can just go off oil.
The right use of petroleum brings benefit. Misuse brings harm and abuse brings danger. For me it is a matter of deciding between the way of God and the way of money. Petroleum used to serve the common human good generates positive outcomes. Petroleum misused in service to private interest brings harm. Persistence in misuse will trend to abuse with dangerous consequence.The world basically produces the same amount of oil as it consumes. That is how it works and everyone and every industry is powered by fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are cheap, portable, efficient, plentiful and reliable.
This is not true George. Relying on travelling by foot, man was always close to the edge of extinction. Why do you have a car? Why do you drive it? Why do you have a heated house? Because the benefits of fossil fuels far outweigh the cost. If people were to stop using fossil fuels today-every tree and spare stick of wood in North America would be burned up in 3 months. Let alone all the killing and fighting over the few remaining resources. No food being produced or transported. We may be dependent on fossil fuels, but the alternative is death to most all of the planet.Maybe we could turn away from the use of cars. Humanity prospered without them for ages? One hundred years of use has brought us close to the edge of extinction. Cars being one example of our earth destroying patterns of practice.
There may be an end to this slick myth! Meant to sike people out and make them contemplate ... a thing not required when definitely believing in something that could change! The disbelievers will be more apt to accept that things change! Thus alter ration of information regarding what's not as it appears ... the mined is a miraculous dark depressive place!We shall see what follows the excessive consumption of a finite resource.
Making use of natural means human being has survived and flourished for thousands of generations. An early example would be Abraham and his extended household. Now that we have preferred artificial means, the work of our own hands, human being is brought to the brink of chaos. That chaos being expressed as cataclysmic natural occurrences and disintegrating human relations in families, communities, and nations.Relying on travelling by foot, man was always close to the edge of extinction.
If you believe the bible, Moses lived to be several hundreds of years, so they must have been healthier than today.Hi,Making use of natural means human being has survived and flourished for thousands of generations.

Trump needs to be removed from office by congress and senate. Senate needs to grow some courage. I hope they do. These reckless egomaniacs are putting the whole world in danger.Even without Bolton...
It really kinda looks as though Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer and defacto national security advisor (can you say "shadow government" right wing conspiracy theorists? Who'da thunk fricken Rudy Giuliani would be a shadow government player, eh you guys?...except he's not in the shadows now, the whole world knows what he's been up to but he's not testifying in the impeachment trial is he? Wonder why? Nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. Clinton testified for hours on end about Benghazi, and was cleared...Guliani will not testify before congress. Dictatorship, much?) - how much was Rudy involved in this? (If at all, Trump needs to be removed.)
Trump just keeps on bulldozing democratic processes, taking the low-road, acting like a dictator himself. (Reminder: democratic presidents don't unilaterally use their personal lawyers to conduct national security and foreign affairs...or advise on regime change.)
I don't care how bad anyone thinks this commander was, it was a reckless and dictatorial move to go ahead and do that without NATO, without congressional approval...just like that.
It was supposed to be secret that the Middle East conference in Warsaw was really about confronting Iran, then Giuliani and Netanyahu showed up.theintercept.com
A truly horrible impeachment distraction, if I may say so.
No congressional approval first, before killing Iran's top commander. Is that a war crime?
This really sucks.
