Arctic Oil Rush


Great Gods of Gluttony!  These guys just aren’t bloody listening are they!  Canada, Denmark, Russia, Norway (and I’m sure the Americans must be involved somewhere), in their desperateness to grab the remaining drops of oil that this good planet has, are all fighting for sovereign supremacy.  They all want a go at the undiscovered oil they believe is provocatively lurking under the Arctic seabed.  And they are salivating. 

The melting ice, induced by man-made global-warming, is somewhat ironically making conditions easier for them to access the (perceived) oil and gas but no-one is hearing the warnings from climatologists in that tampering with the deep ice might have dire biospherical consequences.  No, they don’t give a damn about all that.  They just want to be the first to stake their claim and bag all the treasures.

Believe it or not, and as inconvenient as it may be for some, beneath all the barren Artic surfaces there are eco-systems, organic matter, bio-diversity, marine habitats – thriving life. 

Yes, that’s just what the already thawing Arctic region needs right now –  a whole bunch of squabbling oil-heads invading and pillaging the place . . . sending in steaming submarines, underwater oil-rigging equipment, ROV’s, mass human nautical activity, people coming and going, transport emissions, hellicopters, even military bases . . .

We’re just not learning.

  2. I always think that this neglecting of the rest of humans is nothing but a means to cull our species. It appears those who are on the top of the pile only think that the best solution for humanity is to reduce numbers down to 1 billion or so. If in the meantime they make lots of profit, then so much the better… for them of course.

    And five billion awaiting to see what happens.

    It is about time to use our numbers to overwhelm. Well in actual fact I shouldn’t use first person plural because I won’t be alive by then.

  4. Whenever I read
    of a fight and rush to suck out OIL,
    I can only think of a bunch of vampires
    descending on one helpless dying individual,
    to get even the last few drops of blood.

  5. Matty, that seems fair enough to me.

    Jose, I think it really is coming to the point where the people need to overwhelm the elite and it may be sooner than you think. It’s just so easy to become despondent.

    Little Indian, that is a perfect description.
