Re: Renewable Energy

... Total extraction costs for tar sand oil is about 73$ a barrel after massive layoffs and automation. They have been borrowing massively since 2008 telling the banks 100$ a barrel oil was normal. This year so much of that paper comes due Russia and Saudi have decided to bankrupt them. I'm happy t...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Here's one from Brookings. The federal debt was large by historical standards before the coronavirus crisis. Is it a problem that it’s going to get a lot bigger? Measured against the size of the economy, the federal debt is more than twice what it was before the Great Recession ( 80 percent of GDP t...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

I don't know how many people will be surprised by this. I suspect there won't be many here, in which case most of us will be able to relax in the knowledge that we're not alone and (maybe :P ) not paranoid.

Re: Conspirituality - the overlap between the New Age and conspiracy beliefs

Oh yeah, I've read that before. It is partly why I see it as a red flag when I hear people say they are into New Age or Occult stuff, and even Eastern spirituality, as the Nazis sent representatives to Tibet when they were developing their idea of the Aryan race. It comes from even before. A lot of...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

The greatest misconception among us, which causes deep and painful social and political tension every day in this country, is that we somehow don’t care about each other. White people don’t care about the problems of black America. Men don’t care about women’s rights. Cops don’t care about the comm...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

I guess we're starting to see the "See, it was all overblown after all" crowd after the social distancing has done what it was intended. There's no arguing with that level of willful ignorance. The only thing social distancing does is slow down the infection and death rate. It is easier for us to d...
