America Moves From Competition to Cooperation

Oil prices made their biggest single-day surge on Friday, soaring $11 to $138.54 on the New York Mercantile Exchange, an 8 percent increase. That followed a $5.50 increase the day before, taking oil futures more than 13 percent higher in just two days. While demand has gone up, supply has not been able to add any more oil to the market. Analysts have also cited the decline of the U.S. dollar, fears about the long-term supply of oil, and aggressive speculation as factors in rising prices.
Energy Secretary Sam Bodman said “We’re in a difficult position where we have a lid on production and we have increasing demand in the world,” he told a small group of reporters.
So yesterday, we saw the price of oil go up, up, up and the stock market fall down, down, down. That, my friends, is market pressure growing too great in the bottle, and the sound of a very dangerous cork popping. At this criss-crossing of peak oil, we mow begin the Zero-Sum game as we pass into the forever downward sloping slide of oil depletion. There just isn’t enough oil in the world for everyone to keep living as they do, and now a lot more people are poised to perish because our present governments and markets failed us. Now we are in for some hairy times as government and religious idiots start lobbing missiles at each other all over the world.
Smarter people need to take the weapons out of the hands of hateful people right now. We can have peace and safety while those of us who prefer to avoid conflict and global suicide work out our problems (Even though Russia does have some cool looking airplanes. It reminds me of GI Joe!)
We don’t have to kill one another – but it seems there are people in our global community that choose to. And I can’t stop that from happening, all I can do is try to help people that want to help out their fellow humans.
As for all you macho military warmongers still bent on waving around your weapons, this one’s for you:
Also, I can’t wait too see Bill Maher’s new movie, Religulous.
We let’s agree we can all work together and fix this place.
And lastly, for people in shock wondering about what is going on right now and what to do about it, here is a helpful video:
