Why The Saudis Hold the Cards Right Now

(OilandGasInvestmentBulletin) – Current OPEC spare capacity would suggest a lower world oil price, but the distribution of this spare capacity could be one reason why oil prices are higher than many experts think it should be.

Usually the more spare capacity (supply) in a market there is the lower the price – simple economics. But the reality is that Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world with significant spare capacity to produce more oil in the world and influence prices. And they currently favour a $70-$80 barrel oil price.

In 2003, OPEC had 2 million barrels a day LESS spare capacity it has now, and oil was under $40/barrel – but spare capacity was more evenly spread out among the 11 member states.

If everybody has spare capacity, the potential for cheating on production quotas is greatly increased and that carries a higher downside risk for prices. Should the world economy grow more quickly, only the Saudis have the ability to increase production enough to meet demand and influence prices. Read entire article

Plundering the Planet

“The earth is not dying, it is being killed. And those who are killing it have names and addresses.” Utah Phillips.
(GlobalResearch) – Call me a cynic, but as soon as I hear of the latest “rogue state”, declared by the US and endorsed, invariably, by UK and Israel – a “rogue”, always far away, invariably either poverty stricken, or embargoed – I reach for a 1993 “Encyclopaedia of Word Geography”, turn to the page on the latest declared “enemy”, and look at the box which lists: “Major resources.”

In October 2001, as the assault on and invasion of Afghanistan began, ostensibly in the search for one man, Osama bin Laden, I found (p. 400) : “Major resources: natural gas, coal, iron ore, beryllium, gold, silver, lapis lazuli, sulfur, chrome, copper …” Continue reading

Initial estimates had the amount of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico at 25,000 barrels a day. This clip, made using the same engine that powers many of today’s biggest games, shows how much oil that really is. Video Link Here

Oil Gusher Doom Details Here

Here are the facts about the oil spill that have not been heard anywhere in point form:

Dr. Bill: oil volcano is a giant reserve of magna, ocean floor has been raising around the world 13′ ft a day, that is why there are so many earthquakes and volcano eruptions. This oil is going to keep refilling. Gas burps are lethal and will kill everyone. 79 exercises ready for evacuations. The disbursements heat the ocean and create major hurricanes. BP cut corners and put the wrong pipes down. The company should be seized. 2-2.5 millions gallons a day is leaking. Most dangerous? Volcano super tsunami may occur driven by steam. 80 to 200 feet high, 50 miles inland, clear across Florida. 400-600 miles per hour. 100’s of millions of tons of methane exist in this volcano. 40% of U.S. oil production will cease if tsunami occurs. This could happen by July or up to 2 years. Listen to the weapons that the US have! They have weapons that are a 1000 years ahead of any country that can stop this oil gusher. The plan is to massively reduce the world population…Get out of the Gulf Of Mexico NOW..At least 100 miles inland..
Conspiracy or not? You decide..

(JohnDotyJr) – Relief Wells Are Useless, We Can’t Stop This Oil Gusher

BP and their affiliated and unaffiliated spokespeople are hilarious. For the public, at least. Maybe that’s their plan. They’ve decided that the situation is so hopeless that they will just put on a big comedy show for us with several acts. Behind closed doors, one can only imagine what happens when the facade ends. What are they talking about? What sort of contingencies and strategies are they actually considering? Surely they are not this naive, this ignorant. It makes no sense. So, the only logical conclusion we can come to is that they are entertaining us. So Maybe we should thank BP for their humorous sideshow. Read More Here

(AP) – Gulf oil full of methane, adding new concerns

The oil emanating from the seafloor contains about 40 percent methane, compared with about 5 percent found in typical oil deposits, said John Kessler, a Texas A&M University oceanographer who is studying the impact of methane from the spill.

That means huge quantities of methane have entered the Gulf, scientists say, potentially suffocating marine life and creating “dead zones” where oxygen is so depleted that nothing lives. Read More Here

What’s most striking about the present BP oil catastrophe is not that it is an aberration but rather part of a dangerous pattern of mankind’s propensity to destroy nature. To destroy life in a large region of an ocean isn’t even new: The world already has over two hundred “dead zones” where fish can’t live because the ocean water has no more oxygen left thanks to the runoff effects of man-made chemicals.

President Obama has a solution to the Gulf oil spill: $7-a-gallon gas.

MSM: AP IMPACT – Many Gulf federal judges have oil links

(AP) – More than half of the federal judges in districts where the bulk of Gulf oil spill-related lawsuits are pending have financial connections to the oil and gas industry, complicating the task of finding judges without conflicts to hear the cases, an Associated Press analysis of judicial financial disclosure reports shows.

Thirty-seven of the 64 active or senior judges in key Gulf Coast districts in Louisiana, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida have links to oil, gas and related energy industries, including some who own stocks or bonds in BP PLC, Halliburton or Transocean — and others who regularly list receiving royalties from oil and gas production wells, according to the reports judges must file each year.

They tried to put people on the committee like Phillip Campbell, who had already pronounced it was a done deal and ClimateGate was a non-event, but were forced to settle for people who were more covertly sympathetic: “impartial” people like committee chairman Phil Willis, who had already made up his mind in January and announced it in the Telegraph:

“There are a significant number of climate change deniers, who are basically using the UEA emails to support the case this is poor science that has been changed or at worst manipulated. We do not believe this is healthy and therefore we want to call in the UEA so the public can see what they are saying”
