• Oil prices

    From Björn Felten@2:203/2 to Gregory Deyss on Saturday, February 02, 2019 16:38:52
    It would be more than good for the state of Louisiana if the cost
    of gasoline was $8.70 a gallon. That way, people in Louisiana would
    have jobs. Great jobs, with great pay, and great benefits. Anybody
    and everybody who wanted a job could get a job. A good job, that
    pays really well, and has great benefits. What's the downside?

    I dont think it would go down quite like that.

    Well, we're not all that impressed by what you 'dont'(SIC) think.

    The only ones that would profiting would be the ceo's of these oil companies.

    Judging by your knowledge of anything outside your own county (the R deliberately left out) I doubt that you've never heard of the Orkney Islands. Right?

    For several years now, they've managed to become more than 100% supplied with solar and wind power. They don't even know what to do with their sometimes
    up to 50% surplus!

    Any county or even state in the US can easily make the same happening. But then there's the oil barons ruling your government without some of you even realizing it.

    Hurray for coal and oil power, fuck global warming. Give the oil barons what
    they want. :(

    That is an inaccurate statement in sofar that the Orkneys are a very rutal area. The electricity demand is mostly domestic and the local pub has a back-up
    generator for the dark nights.

    There is no industry of any kind and shipyards plus fishing boats have generators. Supplying 21.000 people with electricity requires a different effort than for 160 million.

    These communities cannot survive on their own without imports of whatever kind of goods which will be produced by power not coming from renewable resources. Their iPhones come from China just the same.

    What are you talking about?
    All I was suggesting is that gasoline prices set at the cost per gallon at $8.70 would cause a negative response.

    Global Warming?

    Hello? the whole purpose and drive behind this phony Global Warming is that
    the globe will superheat. It says nothing about temperatures cooling to the point where it feels like the ice age is upon us.

    wow, really???

    dude, the climate warms up and clouds get thicker... they reflect the heat as well as blocking the sun... below the clouds things get colder since there's no
    sun to warm things up... more clouds from warming gives less heat below... less heat gives colder weather... colder weather gives well...

    Hello Bjrn,

    The climate has changed the conditions that exist.
    The weather is always changing the conditions that exist.

    It's the global warming that causes the extreme weather.

    What kind of global warming? The Earth is always warming, or
    cooling. Sometimes at the same time. That is not really the
    question that should be asked. Manmade global warming is the
    real question. Yes, man does contribute to what is happening.
    But man is not solely responsible.

    Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492. Over the
    next 100 years, Europeans caused so much deforestation that
    an estimated 56 million Native Americans perished. It got
    so cold by the early 1600's the time period became known as
    the Little Ice Age. The area of land that was deforested
    was roughly the size of France. That is what just one area
    of deforestation alone can do.

    Study a little on the jet-stream and on the global ocean conveyor belt and you'll be enlightened...

    The Earth is warming up, due largely to manmade causes.
    How to lower the temperature is easy. Just chop down all
    the remaining forests in the world. Then build new houses
    for the homeless with the timber. If it gets too cold,
    tear down a few houses to use as firewood.

    The newly deforested land can be used to grow more food.
    Assuming it is not all frozen over.

    Indeed it would. Which is why Huey P. Long was so popular in
    his day. He railed against the oil companies (Standard Oil) for
    having a monopoly. He was a populist, and a truly gifted speaker.
    He would have defeated FDR for president had he not been shot by
    a doctor.

    Hurray for coal and oil power, fuck global warming. Give the oil

    the
    point where it feels like the ice age is upon us.

    Here in Louisiana the land is sinking and the water is rising.
    Something is causing this to happen. The camp where I used to go
    fishing is no longer there, because there is no land for a camp
    to be anymore. It is all underwater. The place where I used
    to teach school is no longer there because nobody lives there
    anymore. Why not? Because the entire town is underwater. The
    Native American community that lived there became homeless, and
    had to find a new place to stay. The entire Native American
    community, not just some or most of the people who lived there.

    What is taking place is not global warming/climate change.
    That is just a cover-up story to what is really happening.
    When one area warms up, another area gets cooler. That is
    what happens when a pole shift occurs. The magnetic poles
    will cause the earth's axis to tilt, resulting in a pole
    shift, meaning the North Pole and the South Pole will be at
    a different location in the near future.

    Which freezes faster - hot water or cold water? You can
    conduct the experiment yourself, using your own freezer.
    Fill one ice tray with hot water, and another ice tray with
    cold water. Place them both in the freezer at the same time.
    The ice tray of hot water will freeze before the ice tray
    of cold water.

    Same thing on a global scale. At some point, in the near
    future, the imbalance will be so great that Earth's axis will
    tilt, resulting in a new North Pole and a new South Pole.

    Not to mention a new Ice Age.

    Actually, for more than a decade the winters here have been milder than
    they used to be. The first winter I was here (1972-73), in January of '73
    the thermometer got down below zero (F) and stayed there for over a week.
    Until last week sub-zero temperatures have been rare (and they're coming
    again later this week). All of that said, I had nearly two feet of global warming in my yard until it finally melted yesterday (just in time for more
    of it to come)

    wow, really???

    LOL! My thoughts exactly.

    But it kinda explains how those ignorant deniers reason: they obviously think that the climate is simply like a thermostat that either can be raised or
    lowered, resulting in instant global warming or global cooling.

    That the global climate is far, far more complex than that is seemingly beyond their education.

    Yes. I enjoyed a -53F wind chill a couple weeks ago. It's all "global warming"s fault.

    You see, normally this cold air stays far north. But due to global temperatures
    rising, the jet stream that keeps it there has started to meander a bit. Hence the -53F (47.2C) wind chill.

    That's why they call it "Global Warming" and not "Midwestern United States of America Warming".
