“Long-term energy security?!” This is going to transfer the Canadian tar sands, dumbass!
Long-term?!? Do we even consider the dumbass amount of energy needed to extract and process those tar sands? Or the fresh water? Yeah, it needs fresh water to process it. Lots. Only a dumbass would believe that tar sands mean anything but a desperate oil industry.
And only a true dumbass President and Congress would consider no better way to spend that 7 billion dollars.
But the dumbass CEO and the dumbass US guhment he and his friends have bought are not why the US has an economy and environment and culture built on oil consumption; let’s not forget the dumbass American public who maintain their bubble-reality of a divine right to continue their genocidal gluttony of a lifestyle based on a dirty and increasingly limited non-renewable energy supply.
Feels good to vent like this, however sad the news from home really makes me. 😉
