Oil domination, the end of the USA.
March 22, 2013
Yup, you could say oil dominates our culture: cars, heating our houses, making roads, more cars, plastics, more plastics, more cars. And just like guns, we will not go peacefully into that cold night without oil. But there could be a way, maybe.
Come on, let’s stay with oil. I mean, COME ON, it’s worked for over a hundred years, right.
What is the definition of Sustainability?
According to Richard Heinberg of the post carbon institute (find him here http://richardheinberg.com/about ; he made the above video, by the way)
“That which can be maintained over time.”
According to the Iroquois Great Law of Peace–chiefs must consider the impact of their decision on the seventh generation to come. (From the Post Carbon Reader) Seven generations–that would be 30 years per generation on average, about 210 years. Do you think the oil will last until 2223?
How about this, from the 1987 definition at the United Nations’ World Commission on Environment and Development: “meets the needs of the present generation without compromising future generations to meet their needs.” Sure, we’re doing that with fracking, right? No problem with tearing up small town North Dakota.
It’s coming to a town near you . . . Oh shit, it’s already here in Greeley, Colorado, in Weld County where farming and ranching used to be, now with 20,000 fracking wells in a small area of Eerie. And I work near there. I take my own water, though. This is a long article, but well worth a save and read.
It’s all to help us keep driving whatever the hell we want as far as we want. A-N-D we will not have to rely on those &^%$# OPEC turbanheads. After all, Muslims aren’t humans, right?
You know you can make a difference. All you have to do is care. Look around you and care. Because if you don’t . . . If you don’t, the great USA will die. Sooner than you think.
