Energy Producers Waste More Than $40 billion
By : Dan Rafter - Friday September 5, 2008
Making Sour Gas Into Sweet Energy A 2004 report by the World Bank provided the shocking news: Every year, energy producers waste more than $40 billion by burning off gas at their oil fields and sending it into the atmosphere. The World Bank’s latest statistics estimate that energy producers annually waste 110 billion cubic meters of natural gas—gas that could be transformed into usable energy—by flaring it. This is a tremendous waste. It’s also harmful to the (...)

The principal lesson taught in school regarding personal finance is that everyone should have at least a five-year business plan. Creating such a plan forces us to take inventory of what we have, allowing us to figure out what we need to do to be able to prepare for what our needs may be for the future. This concept is also applied to collectives, such as corporations, communities and countries. The larger the collective the further into the future the business plan should foresee. This (...)

How Iran Has Bush Over a Barrel By Robert Baer Wednesday, Jun. 11, 2008 If wasn’t clear before it should be now: the Bush Administration can’t afford to attack Iran. With gas already at $4 a gallon and rising almost every day, Iran figuratively and literally has the United States over a barrel. As much as the Administration is tempted, it is not about to test Iran’s promise to "explode" the Middle East if it is attacked. The Iranians haven’t been shy about (...)

Venezuela’s Chavez Says Attack by U.S. Would Cause $500 Oil By Steven Bodzin May 15 (Bloomberg) — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, whose country is the biggest oil exporter in the Americas, said crude oil would rise to ``$400 or $500 a barrel’’ in the case of a U.S. attack. The reactivation of the U.S. Fourth Fleet in the Caribbean on July 1 and a possible U.S. base on the Guajira Peninsula, which Venezuela shares with Colombia, are both threats to his country, (...)

‘Perhaps 60% of today’s oil price is pure speculation’ By F. William Engdahl Global Research, May 2, 2008 The price of crude oil today is not made according to any traditional relation of supply to demand. It’s controlled by an elaborate financial market system as well as by the four major Anglo-American oil companies. As much as 60% of today’s crude oil price is pure speculation driven by large trader banks and hedge funds. It has nothing to do with the (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
