there is no conspiracy and there is no shortage. There is an openly proclaimed political agenda, which descends from the anti-human culture taht is killing the west, and it is wrong on many levels, energy policy included.
We have all the oil we need. The only reason why it is not available at reasonable prices is the nonsensical restrictions on drilling. They are not justified by real environmental concerns but on the explicit will to cripple the "unfair" technological advantage of the west and/or to remake the world beginning from the centralized planning of the economy. It's ideology pure and simple, like the "population bomb", the man-made global cooling hoax (in the 70s), the man-made ozone-layer hole, the man-made global warming hoax (80s to present) and all the recurring scares with which we're told we're gonna die tomorrow unless we implement the most absurd policies NOW. The same political idiocy that is forcing on us those extremely dangeorus, polluting, expensive and job-killing, China-made, mercury lightbulbs in place of one of the iconic American contributions to human progress and comfort: Thomas Alva Edison's incandescent lightbulb. That idiocy and the war on political and economic freedom is what is preventing the world from enjoyng the benefits of the immense
and untapped oil fields of this planet which, for the US alone, would be enough to send the Middle East tyrants back to barter economy. The oil that is in minuscule parts of Alaska, Utah, the Rockies, the Coast of California, Texas and the Gulf, is enough to provide cheap fuel for at least another couple of centuries to make America and its allies energy-independent, to give enough time and ease for human ingenuity, free research and the market to develop serious alternatives - should the need arise - without the comrades of the EPA turning the US into Zimbabwe, and the rest of us with it. All that, while forcing the taxpayer to subsidize failures like electric cars that give you a couple dozen miles - if there are no hills and it's not February in Minnesota - and then you have to recharge them by using coal and oil-produced energy (and, the extremely polluting batteries have to be bought at a dear price from S. Korea as their production process is in breach of enviromental regulations in the west. Puh-leeze!). In the meantime, the reduced production of wheat due to subsidized ethanol is causing food shortages and skyrocketing prices of bread in the third world - because we care for the poor - and the erosion of good land - because we care for the environment (dang, I'm drifting again).
Oil is abundant, relatively easy to find and transform in a safe and clean way. If only the government stayed away from it. No, the recent spill in the Gulf is not an argument. The reason why it took so long to plug it is that because of the absurd regulations imposed by government agencies, oil rigs have been forced to go farther and farther away form the coast, where oil fields are thousands and thousands of yards down under the sea level. Between the depth of the sea, the water pressure, the currents, a simple intervention of one hour on land or shallow waters requires weeks, especially if incompentent theoreticians and ideologues instead of real men are in charge of the operations.
And, mother nature absorbed most of it anyway. And, the rig that exploded was the only one OK'd by an adminstration of fanatic tree-huggers who'd skipped the rigorous procedures of their predecessors. And, the BP is the typical liberal big-business in cahoots with big goverment in defiance of the rule of law and all the conditions for a truly free market. BP has been for years pushing for "renewable energies" and similar frauds (and the taxpayer money they guarantee) and it is one of the biggest contributors of the campaign of the deity that blessed the Earth with his presence among such unworty mortals. It is also a big "donor" to all the worst anti-family campaigns around the world, but I digress. All of the above is on public records, there is no need for conspiracy theories. And, now you have a moratory that is not only killing hundreds of thousands jobs in the Gulf - just as China, Vietnam, Iran and all the other enemies of the west are multiplying their rigs in the same waters - but is necessarily helping the prices of oil to go up, as there is less of it available for us and more for these emerging powers that need oil to build up their own industrial might. An industrial growth that is currently paid for (mostly) by the American taxpayer via interests on the debt. The interest
on the debt, not the debt
, currently owed to China is roughly the cost of the entire Armed Forces of the People's Republic. As Lenin used to say, "the capitalists will sell us the rope we'll use to hang them". He was of course wrong like all commies, but only partially: if the US returned to really free markets and limited governement, it would not owe such huge money to a third world tyranny. And, Americans are not even selling
the rope with which the Chicoms will hang us all, they are paying
for it, and a million times its real price at that.
There is plenty of oil, and oil IS the clean energy. Oil is not the problem. Politics is.
There, I said it. Let the stoning begin.
