11 June 2010 - Gulf Oil Spill Projection

Stretch your imagination beyond its usual field of protection. Consider whether oil (crude, black gold, texas tea) might just be the "blood" of our Mother Earth. That the entire planet is a living breathing being (just as we have millions of microbes and parasites and other creatures that dwell within and upon US) which is capable of replenishing itself? THINK.

Paraphrasing NBC Evening News : "the oil could continue pouring out of the earth for the rest of our lifetimes."

THINK for a moment - do the math -

All that oil that has so far spilled - the blood of our Earth Mother - how much GASOLINE could that have been refined into? How much jet fuel? Home heating oil? Don't you understand?

The bounty of wealth from that well, had BP properly extracted it (by my calculations) should have LOWERED the price at the pumps to about $1.99!

In truth, had there been NO "accident" offshore, gas would now be close to $3.55! That's what "big oil" was planning! It's all about MONEY! Dirty, green MONEY!

Now that Americans are BEGINNING, just beginning to fathom what is going on, BP will "turn off the cameras watching the leak" tomorrow as they attempt to plug it. Really? Plug it? Something rotten is going on here. We are being collectively lied to! Aside from what has become a MAJOR ecological disaster, we now know that there is more oil being harvested than we can imagine. The supply is truly endless, and the prices we are paying for all those fuels are greatly inflated, robbing us and our children of the standards-of-lives we deserve.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
