    I also love the conservative talking point of "Build Keystone XL!" like oil dug by a Canadian company on Canadian soil, shipped to a Canadian owned port in Texas and sold to some overseas company whereby the Canadian firm keeps the profits somehow benefits America. Because capitalism?
    That's just it. Everything seems to be set up for private profit. And as has been proven over and over and over again, trickle down doesn't work. So, why our society needs to be entirely based around it is beyond my comprehension.

      Bingo. It's exporting all of the environmental risk to the US. All of the profits stay in Canada. Fuck that.

      • I'm not going to backread. Are the last 4 pages just Sic pretending the whole world isn't seeing substantial inflation, and just blaming everything on things he doesn't like?

              I'm the one saying "large scale energy storage" is the missing link for the last decade or so.

                I have been told inflation is global. Greater oil supply short term would be a relief to global inflation. And it would aid Europe to get off Russia sources.

                  • I've been wondering what ever happened to vanadium batteries. Remember reading they were some massive breakthrough back in college.

                    • It's going to be really interesting with gas creeping up again. Currently it's $4.59 for me...

                      I'm sure the R's will start playing this card openly and freely as we head into midterms. We all know how this can creep up as the #1 issue for many folks, regardless as to what else is floating around in their head.

                          Dissolve? No. We just will become Russia2, where our oligarchs feast off the profits, and everyone who used to earn 600k and under a year are practically homeless.

                            Many many "states" that were part of the Soviet Union split off. You don't think that will happen here?
