US to 'drown the world' in oil : Comments

By Nicholas Cunningham, published 28/8/2019

A recent report from this organization says that to avoid the worst effects of climate change, 'we canít afford to drill up any oil and gas from new fields anywhere in the world.'

yeah well I suppose the warmist religion of the 70's insisted we would be out of oil by the year 2000. Now they are worried the US is producing to much. Pathetic to think these alarmist have brainwashed so many. Really comical to hear of electric cars needing to produce more carbon than petrol cars. Anyone told Bill Shorten or Daniel Andrews.

Well it looks like all those predicting peak oil, & telling us we would be back on the horse & cart by 2000 got it about as right as those telling us we would all be boiling in a hottest world "EVER" by the 2000, or 2005, or 2006, or 2010, or in 18 months, or 12 years or any time in the next few centuries.

Incredibly some people believed every wrong prediction, & still fall for the same garbage today.

The world has a future, just not a fossil-fueled one! And just for an economic future that has finally forced the cold dead hand of the price gouging fossil fuel industry off of our's and the global economy.

Every second one of us will confront cancer before we turn 85. Along with infants babies, toddlers and juveniles, fall victim to myeloid leukemia aand some very nasty brain cancers etc. More so if you live close by a highway busy with diesel-powered traffic

. Fossil fuels are toxic and give off toxic and cariogenic particulates. Some of our larger cities are so smog bound from industrial pollution, almost impossible to venture outside on some days.

Oil price shocks contributed to several global recessions and that cannot be allowed to happen again with weaponised oil!

Electric vehicles don't, despite the endlessly repeated mistruths of a brainwashed from birth, runner., have an exhaust or an exhaust product that spews CO2 and other pollutants into an already hugely overloaded atmosphere.

Think, at the dawn of humankind, around 2 million years ago? The atmosphere was 51% antiviral anti-bacterial, disinfecting oxygen. Today it is less than half that and the world has more than doubled the infectious diseases we must now cope with. Incidentally, oxygen is implicated in all healing!

We need other cleaner, vastly less costly, vastly less-lethal fuels and we do have other cheaper safer less-lethal options.

Because thorium is so abundant and all but everywhere, it has to be thorium!

There's enough energy in a handfull of Mumbai sand, to power India for a year!?

And because thorium is so prevalent, almost impossible for greedy speculators to corner the energy market and cripple entire economies with endless maximised price gouging and rationed weaponised oil!

Thorium promises every fusion did, but couldn't, unlike thorium, deliver!

Come on Alan, a bit of rationality would help.

Without fossil fuels we would still, like the cavemen & medieval man, be lucky to reach our 30Th birthday. It is only the civilisation allowed by fossil fuels that has enabled most of us to live long enough to develop cancer.

Even if someone actually solves the problems with thorium & builds a power system that works with it, we will still be using fossil fuels long after you & I have gone.

The US probably uses half a million barrels of oil per day on wars.
http://www.resilience.org/stories/2006-02-26/us-military-oil-consumption/

How much oil are we going to waste sending warships to the M/E to protect oil shipments out of the gulf and to protect the US petrodollar?
Why exactly are we starving the people of Iran and Venezuela?
If the US itself wants to overthrow these countries so it can turn the oil taps on for themselves, then that apparently is quite ok.
