Signed in at Monty, dumped out at Pluggers. Signed in at Pluggers, dumped out at F Minus. Annoying.
Beer! Is there anything it can’t do? The breakfast of champions and so much more.
You know, that actually happened to me once. I was overseas and somebody asked me, “Do you know my friend so-and-so? He lives in Canada, too.”
Ancient Irish or Chinese curse (depending on who you talk to): May you live in interesting times.
We’re currently in a CO2 drought, near record lows in geological time terms. Plenty more wouldn’t hurt.
So far a two-day power failure in Pluggerville, in the middle of winter. We’ll soon see if those pluggers are as resilient as they think they are.
I thought maybe the lights were out in Pluggerville. Merry Christmas!
The big oil companies are in on the carbon tax game. Exxon claims it is going to exit the petroleum industry. It’s probably not true, but they definitely want in on the carbon tax graft.
The potential profit in carbon taxes runs to many trillions. But it’s not profit generated by making things people want to buy. It’s generated by capturing huge sections of the economy through taxes, surveillance and regulation, which generates graft. It’s a huge, top-down program. The spokespeople are motivated by pure greed, as are the rich backers they serve. That is why they are all hypocrites. Oil is not going away. It’s just going to be so expensive that little people like you and me won’t be able to use much of it.
Especially since none of the high profile spokespeople, not a single one, is prepared to make any real sacrifices for global warming. DiCaprio, Gore, Obama, Sting all fly in private jets and own big houses. David Suzuki owns a big house on the BC coast in partnership with an oil company. Even Greta Thunberg is belching CO2 because her crew all flew home separately after the photo ops. The hypocrisy is the biggest tell.
