Off topic.

How's the (wings, head, skin and fur intact) bat soup?[emoticon]

Wife has ancestral properties in China. Tried their street food and came home with terrible mouth sore.

Was dared on some fried snake in another Asian country. Not too bad. Taste like chicken.[emoticon]

Hmmm, John Kerry says pipelines are better to transport oil than trains and trucks.

"Isn't it true that pipelines are more carbon-delivery efficient than trains or trucks or other forms of delivery?" Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) asked the masked (and muffled) climate guru John Kerry on Wednesday:

"Yeah, that is true. I think that is true," Kerry, President Biden's climate adviser, responded. "But it doesn't mean necessarily we want to be adding another (pipe)line when there are other alternatives. But is it better than train and better than -- yes it is, in my judgement."




And???

How the about the native-Amerrican tribal lands they consider sacred that it is crossing?


I guess John Kerry is onboard.

Should we build a pipeline to facilitate the use and increase the mining of the most polluting form of oil?

Timmo! never did provide us with an analysis of the environmental impacts of mining tar sands to compare to lithium mining.

I gotta give a little credit to the Alberta oil sands industry here though. For awhile they just took the stance of “we don’t give a **** about air quality etc. We are the driver of industry in this province”. Then backers started to back away from investing as markets demanded less polluting sources of oil and oil products. They have now made a genuine effort to reduce pollution, water use, improve air quality etc. They have a long way to go but the mindset is changing. The petro chemical industry is an important part of the economy here. I hope to continue to see change and adaptation in the industry.

Meanwhile, this pipeline debacle seems to be affecting fuel prices which will of course help, and having said that, a fill up on my Tesla is still 8 bucks...at home. Point is, they may want to keep fuel price increases in check as there is now a very inexpensive alternative for many depending on their driving needs. [emoticon].

And in a dying industry where they are actually capping pumping platforms and virtually stopped new exploration and drilling.

I can't help it.
Some of these conversations make me think of having a chapel in a house of ill repute.

Mex,

You mean the oil industry is doing a "Hail Mary"?

Bet if you did a little looking you would see "Big Oil" is investing in renewable energy.
