Write-down of two-thirds of US shale oil explodes fracking myth
Industry’s over-inflated reserve estimates are unravelling, and with it the ‘American dream’ of oil independence
The big problem with using a finite energy source: you’re eventually going to run out of it.
Nature is telling us that it is way past due for us to be getting off of the fossil fuels through the effects we are experiencing from climate change. The universe itself seems to be telling us that it is time to get off fossil fuels through this development. Conservatives can’t realize and accept that there does come a point when you HAVE to make ACTUAL changes to your regimen in order to survive. Corporatist Libertarians don’t seem to be able to accept or realize that you NEED government to take a proactive role in bringing this about; that the market will not make the changes fast enough or thorough enough to bring about the changes that we need in order to make a significant enough difference in order to survive.
Both of these sides are driven by ideology primarily, not by science or fact. Most of the Liberals and self-described “Progressives” also live only on the plane of ideology and not in the empirical reality that is around them. This is how they have been so ineffectual at getting anything done to counter the Right and the Corporatist Libertarians when they have the basic outlines of the solutions that people both want and need in order to be well and survive in reality.
This is how the species is going to be made to go through a resetting phase, where hopefully, those with the poor brain types will be driven out or killed off by nature in the process of trying to survive and failing to do so. Quite honestly I don’t want to go through this phase myself. That is why and how I am so vocal with my opposition to both the stupidity and senselessness of all sides in the political arena save for true Progressives and people who put facts and science ahead of personal belief, ideology or identity.
Think about it.
Because will you likely be among the survivors who are left to pick up the pieces and all of the nonsense that comes with that? Or will your clueless, ignorant and nonsensing brain lead you and yours into a natural death?
Think carefully, because you don’t have a choice in the matter. That is just an illusion and nothing more.
Think about it.
