Fred Pearce : Oil Pipelines To Wreck The Planet

“The pipeline is routine. Something we do every day,” he told Canadian journalists.

But that’s the point. It is routine. The oil industry does do it every day. And if it carries on, it will wreck the world.

We need not rely on climate-changing fossil fuels. Alternative energy technologies are available.

Is Obama about to blow his climate credentials? – opinion – 28 January 2013 – New Scientist

After Sandy, lefties were hysterical that people couldn’t get gas. A few weeks later they are hoping that people won’t be able to get gas. Maybe Fred can run his car off hamsters?

    Life on Earth is the only thing that stores energy from the Sun in a long term form.
    Sun energy is stored in wood, crude oil, natural gas, coal. Man would not have advanced without these natural resources. How much of the Sun’s energy do you think is stored on the moon?
    To condem humankind for burning these products is asinine. We are following a logical natural progression. We have done nothing wrong.

    We can get energy from other sources but most use more energy to produce than we get back.

    Using natural fuels to survive on Earth is not a crime. The warmists have lost perspective and common sense. They are morons.

    Maybe Fred should be denied everything produced by current technologies! Or even restricted to those provided by “GREEN TECH”!

    And if [the oil industry] carries on, it will wreck the world.
    O says that the reason for his opposition to the XL Pipeline is concern for leakage or something. But, we know his real reason is straightforward opposition to anything that improves our oil & gas capability. Some quotes:
    “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe [as $10 a gallon].” -Steven Chu, O’s Secretary of (Anti)-Energy
    “I think that I would have preferred a [more] gradual adjustment. ” -Obama in response to gas prices rising abruptly. Obviously, implicit in O’s words is that he wants gas prices to rise, but only slowly. Pair O’s words with those of Chu.
    “Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It’s global warming. It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world.” -Harry Reid, Democrat
    “Imagine the total civil breakdown that would ensue if the electric grid failed for an extended period in Sydney or London…It’s worth noting that if a major city lost all electric supply in 1950, it wouldn’t have been catastrophic… Then ask yourself — why do we tolerate those in our polity who are working to weaken our already over-extended energy generating and delivery systems?” -Wes George (JNova comment)
    “Chief executives of large fossil fuel companies [should] be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature.” -James Hansen, NASA
    “[in twenty years {2008} ] the West Side Highway [and thus most of Manhattan] will be under water… ” -James Hansen, 1988
