So scientists reckon we are nearing the point where we cannot extract oil from the ground as fast as we consume it. They project that we are just about at the point where we have used half of the worlds supply. Apparently we have just 20 to 30 years of oil left. Ever increasing demand coupled with restricted supply is a recipe for ongoing price rises.
It doesn’t worry me.
We just have to get smarter, more efficient and use renewable resources. As the oil prices increase, the utilisation of alternative energy sources becomes more viable.
Bring it on I say!
In the mean time I reserve the right to gripe just like all the rest of you about the price of filling the tank of my car.
I have become quite cynical of the media.
The media is a viable businesses only when there is news, because then people watch and listen, and then advertisers want to pay to get exposure too.
Quite frankly I think that the concept of global warming was made up one day when there wasn’t any news.
One volcano can vent more pollution and poisonous gases in a week then we can with our factories and vehicles! (I have no statistics to back up this claim)
Global warming is often blamed for the supposed increase in the frequency of natural disasters: floods, tsunami’s, storms for example. I suggest that the media has more eyes in more places and news stories are exchanged globally far more readily than ever before. Additionally, the world population is now so large that many low income groups live in at risk locations.
I believe that the planet goes through natural climate cycles. If there is any basis to the claims about global warming, perhaps this is end of one phase and the beginning of another.
Author Michael Crichton in his novel “State of Fear” researched global warming for 3 years before writing his book. He thinks its a crock of shit.
And lately have you noticed that you don’t see the phrase “global warming” in the media any more? Now it’s called “climate change”. Which means “some places will be warmer, some colder, some wetter, some drier, some windier, some calmer”.
Well duh. That’s called “weather”.
I’m concerned that kids these days aren’t eating enough dirt.
There are anti bacterial cloths, disinfectants, antihistamines and antibiotics. I’m quite sure they are all just making us weaker!
To build a healthy and resilient immune system more dirt should be eaten; especially at a young age.
Every week we put out our glass, plastic, bottles, cans and paper for the council to recycle.
Are you aware that these materials are first sorted and then buried?
Unfortunately the cost of recycling materials such as plastic and aluminum is greater than cost of buying new.
The council keeps a map of what they bury where, in the hope that one day it can be dug up and sold for cash.
Therefore I propose that you purchase garbage dumps and closed landfills at a bargain price today so that one day (perhaps in 20 years) you can mine your trash for nuggets of gold!*
(*results may vary)
You won’t even have to get your hands dirty. By that time there will be robots that will pick through the trash for you!
I have just recently come to the following realisation. To taste good food must have at least one of these ingredients: fat or sugar (preferably both!). If it doesn’t have either, the food tastes like Brussel sprouts. I’m right aren’t I!
FMCG companies often label their foods with “99% fat free!” but if you look carefully at the label it has extra sugar in it! In the end your body doesn’t care which one it gets to process. Both fat and sugar have high levels of energy. If you consume these foods and don’t spend the energy by exercising, your body will store it as fat!
