IIF Exclusive:

Either Obama and his entire crew are a bunch of bluddering morons, or he just proved there is an agenda that has almost nothing to do with helping the environment.

The speech: www.whitehouse.gov…
Yadda fix well, yadda alternative energy… get off oil. Alternative energy doesn’t actually get us off crude oil as we’ll see.

One could argue that all of the other products we get from oil are the byproducts from going after the fuel, while another could argue it’s the other way around.

Just finding a replacement for gasoline, natural gas etc doesn’t do too much to stop our NEED for oil. Oil is used to make virtually every consumer product in the modern world. From carpet, to roads. Paints to adhesives. Epoxies, that are even used to connect road sections of bridges. Plastics, vinyls, tubing, shoes, clothes, nylon, polyester (poly-anything actually), teflon. Electronics, TV’s, computers, etc.

I hate to say it but its hopeless. Even if we found a viable solution to the energy needs of oil we cannot go without its products. It would be like proposing that humans give up computers. The computers we use can’t exist without oil, and not even because of the energy we get from it.

As long as this is the reality there will be spills, but the real kicker is that crude oil is nowhere near as bad for the environment as the products we make from it. Oil isn’t going away, because even if we replaced the energy needs we’d still need the oil roughly as much anyways. That means that replacing the energy completely would equate to wasting that energy extracted while reaching for its other components.

So before you go trying to scream about oil spills consider that the PC you’re using to do it with was made with oil. The radio or TV you first heard about the spill with was ‘… … …’. When TIME magazine puts out a grocery store checkout isle photo journal (and overcharges for it) the glossy inks they used to make it wouldn’t be possible without oil. After debating online, the bed you will sleep in was made with oil. If you go and protest oil and get hurt, pretty much everything at the hospital was made with oil. Modern life wouldn’t be possible without oil.

The list goes on and on and on:

Ammonia, Anesthetics, Antihistamines, Artificial limbs, Artificial Turf, Antiseptics, Aspirin, Auto Parts, Awnings, Balloons, Ballpoint pens, Bandages, Beach Umbrellas, Boats, Cameras, Candles, Car Battery Cases, Carpets, Caulking, Combs, Cortisones, Cosmetics, Crayons, Credit Cards, Curtains, Deodorants, Detergents, Dice, Disposable Diapers, Dolls, Dyes, Eye Glasses, Electrical Wiring Insulation, Faucet Washers, Fishing Rods, Fishing Line, Fishing Lures, Food Preservatives, Food Packaging, Garden Hose, Glue, Hair Coloring, Hair Curlers, Hand Lotion, Hearing Aids, Heart Valves, Ink, Insect Repellant, Insecticides, Linoleum, Lip Stick, Milk Jugs, Nail Polish, Oil Filters, Panty Hose, Perfume, Petroleum Jelly, Rubber Cement, Rubbing Alcohol, Shampoo, Shaving Cream, Shoes, Toothpaste, Trash Bags, Upholstery, Vitamin Capsules, Water Pipes, Yarn

You can’t even make a score of “green” products without it, or at least it’s currently used to make them. LED lights, those curly power compact bulbs Al Gore wants us all to buy, the jugs we buy Simple Green in, solar panels, air filters, water filters, hand crank flashlights & radios, “Smart” cars, biofuel processors, wire & cable insulation used to hook up wind turbines, caulk used to seal cracks to increase energy efficiency, and so on.

And worst of all, many of the products made from oil are far worse for the environment than the crude that gets spilled is, and is thousands of times longer lasting in the environment, than crude oil which is eaten by bacteria.

How can he talk about us needing to break our addiction to oil and not mention a peep about this reality?

If he really cared about the environment, and the nation for that matter, he’d be grandstanding on a cross country speaking tour, which he’s really good at, trying to convince everyone to stop buying garbage products from China. Virtually everything made in China is literally garbage, and literally all of it is destined for the landfill, sooner than later. You can buy used 30 year old USA products from a thrift store that would outlast the China junk you find at Walmart.

He should be telling people to buy long lasting Made in the USA products. With Chinese garbage they even have to use fuel to ship it across the globe. Some of the Chinese mega-tankers are the worst sources of pollution in the world. Even if he didn’t decide to go for China’s jugular, for etc reasons, he could still be grandstanding about how USA products are environmentally smart. Even if you have to pay more initially, it will last longer and pay off. Less garbage at the land fill, less ‘need’ for more oil extracts, less fuel getting it to your door, and so on.

He should be telling everyone to wash out and reuse all of the vast array of plastic containers we get doing everyday grocery shopping. This goes far beyond plastic grocery bags.

If he cared about the environment he’d be inciting cheerleaders to do backflips to convince people that we need a Hemp Economy. Hemp actually can solve some challenges in the lists above of oil produced products. It isn’t a total solution. Nothing is. We are stuck with oil, or forget about modern life. Period. But we can make a difference. Things can be better. And hemp, tied with conservation is the sinlge most best hope for making a deep impact.

Nice try, Mr. ‘president of the world’.

This man doesn’t care about you or the environment, and his speech is proof of that.

This being the case, it’s time people take a moment to think of what the real agenda is here.

“The only way to prevent global ecological collapse and thus ensure the survival of humanity is to rid the world of Industrial Civilization,” writes Farnish, adding that “people will die in huge numbers when civilization collapses”.

“Keith Farnish has it right: time has practically run out, and the ’system’ is the problem,” wrote Dr. James Hansen on the Amazon website. “Governments are under the thumb of fossil fuel special interests – they will not look after our and the planet’s well-being until we force them to do so, and that is going to require enormous effort.

FULL STORY

A renowned environmentalist, known for his advocacy of population reduction as a means of offsetting climate change, has called for “a more authoritative world” where freedom comes second to tackling what he sees as the devastating effects of global warming. Futurist James Lovelock, tells the London Guardian that he believes “It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while,” in order to save humanity:

Prison Planet

Earth Times:

Potsdam, Germany – German scientists called Tuesday for the world to accept per-person quotas for carbon dioxide emissions to kick-start a global trading scheme where poor nations will benefit. The Potsdam Institute for Research on Climate Effects said everyone on the globe should be allowed 5 tons of carbon per year. That is just one quarter of the average per-person emissions for a US citizen, but still far above emissions in poor nations. The government-funded institute said the current arrangement, in which some nations have made voluntary commitments to cut emissions, would not work. The institute says the world needs an effective way to hold global warming to no more than 2 degrees. Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, director of the Potsdam Institute said voluntary cuts agreed last year at the Copenhagen climate summit would still allow the global climate to become more than 3 degrees warmer by end of this century. A scheme with worldwide per-person quotas would allow poor nations to sell part of their quotas to rich nations. Nations such as the United States have very high per-person emissions partly because of high fuel use by industry and government services.
