or lack there of,……

consider this:

if US$ 50-70 a barrel made it financially feasible to extract oil from oily sand,….

and in so doing made Canada, of all countries, now the country with the worlds second ( i think ) largest reserves in the world,….

and if its no longer a silly idea to grow corn in your back yard to run your car,…

and if its no longer silly to think that what you put in your tea and coffee can also drive your kids to school,…

and if its no longer silly to think that the Una-Bomber was right,….

and Al Gore wins a Nobel Peace prize for growing a beard!

then what price would oil have to be for it to no longer be silly for entire nations to send their armies across borders to secure their current future energy needs?

answer:

perhaps when oil starts getting so expensive that its actually getting too expensive to live in an oil producing country?

especially since almost everything is imported.

and if the price of everything is going up, partly becuase of the price to transport them ie the price of oil,….

what comes next after secureing the oil?

clean drinking water.

is it just me or is the world turning into a pre-madmax science fiction pre-apocalypse type thing?

take turkey’s recent military moves on iraqs northern border.

now could it really be a coincidence that theyre moving their army only a couple of weeks after the kurds announced that they were selling some pretty hefty oil contracts?

the oil law in iraq hasnt been passed yet, so the kurds are doing this on their own, probably with the funds going into their own accounts rather than that of the iraqi central government.

and while the yanks might be all “we urge restraint”,… they really dont seem too bothered.

hmmmmm,……

perhaps its time i checked ebay for a pair of black leather pants like mel wore in mad max.
