What if Bush is right. Suppose there is 12 - 86 billion barrels of oil available offshore in currently unleased potential drilling bonanza hotspots. Lets presume the best, all 86bil barrels are found and recovered. How great would that be? [more]
Housing used more basic materials than any industry. Combined with auto manufacturing it is a third of all materials used. Add in appliances and furniture and it is half. [more]
Well the damn greenies are issuing you a warning that the run-up might not last.
Yesterday GW Bush suggested that the solution to the high fuel prices we are experiencing is as simple as opening up off shore oil fields to drilling. He said that there are 18 billion barrels of oil sitting under water out there. In a monumental and cosmic shift from my typical left wing liberal environmentalist tree hugging do gooder entitling enabling self I have decided to encourage GW to sell. As a US citizen and 1/300,000,000 shareholder in the USA I will sell my 60 bbls for $140.00 each. If you want them, they are yours. Just cut me a check for $8400.00. To much you say? [more]
linking chemical x with your health problems. Or colony collapse disorder. Or declining fish stocks. Or five legged frogs.
Well, at least the considerable time, money and effort collecting and organising the library data will not be wasted. Oh, wait, yes it will.
"There is a forgiveness that I think we have to ask for," Gary Fourstar added. "If you do something wrong, then you ask for forgiveness. If you don't ask for forgiveness, then you are doomed to perpetuate the action because you are in denial that it ever took place. If we continue to pollute the water, then we are doomed to repeat it. And we are repeating it -- and the water is dying." [more]
In my last blog post I proposed that if you are eighteen and starting out today, with a salary of $24,000 and are willing to live very frugally (probably more frugally than actually possible) and manage to save $250 each month and earn 8% interest at the end of 42 years you can retire at 60 with a million dollars. After dividing that mil into 20 equal parts you get to retire on $50,000 per year. Annual inflation of 4% will have raised 2007's poverty level of $10,400 income to $54,000 in 2050. [more]
Think for a moment what that means. In the USA in 2007 the Gov says you are living in poverty if your income is $10,400 annually for a single person. That is an income of $200.00 per week. Imagine your lifestyle on $200.00 per week. You get a nice studio apartment in a crack house for $500 per month. Paint peeling off the walls, drafty, tape on the cracked window. Leaves you with $85 per week for paint, heat, electric, clothes, food, transportation (WTF, you aren’t going anywhere). It all seems pretty grim. [more]
Adverse Gardasil reactions. 1800 page pdf file. These reactions range from numbness at the injection site and rashes to fevers, paralysis and death. Judicial watch had to file an Freedom of Information to get this data. I spoke to my childs pediatrician today. He assured me that if Gardasil were linked to deaths it would be pulled imediately. He is wrong. Some of these events happened a month after the first of the three Gardasil injections. You may decide that means they are not caused by Gardasil. You may also decide that means many more adverse reactions are not being linked to Gardasil. Many reactions happened within seconds of being injected. [more]
A short while ago I wrote this blog on EPG a company determined to turn cow poop into gold. Well actually into heat, methane fuel and fertilizer three of the forms gold arrives in today, all while solving a solid waste disposal problem for farms. At that time, 3/25, I bought some shares so I could say I had invested in the biggest pile of crap ever. [more]
