I'd hate to be the only logical person in this train wreck of a discussion, but I for one want to see the human race survive and I want to see it improve and last a long time. No one is going to save us from ourselves, so why don't we save us from ourselves?

As for wind, wind isn't the best alternative, but solar is. They are working on nanotechnology as we speak to improve efficiency of solar panels by 500% within the next 10 years, and the Sun is the largest source of energy we have. We'd be foolish not to put up a very large solar farm in Nevada or somewhere out West where there is little environmental risk.

Nuclear is a good option for now - but we can't drive our cars on nuclear energy. We'll still have to use oil - and the best way to make sure we have plenty of oil for the next few generations is to CONSERVE it.

We frankly don't have the reserves on our own soil to produce the oil we need, and drilling more just puts it out on the open market. We can't drill here and say that the oil we drill is only going to be used for US consumption. It's a fungible good. Even if we do increase offshore drilling, it would only give us about 2 - 3% more oil.

The way to make oil last is to not use so much of it. How? Because 71% of our oil consumption is through transportation. Only a small fraction of it is used for energy and even a smaller fraction than that is used for manufacturing. If we shifted most of our freight to rail and used trucks for local shipments only - we would reduce our consumption through transportation enormously. If we improved passenger rail such that high speed rail was throughout the entire US and through all major populated corridors, it would reduce the need for any domenstic air travel and long distance driving - which reduces consumption further. Add in metro transit and your reduce the need for commuting every day to work in major cities.

By those changes above, you could knock down 2/3 of the consumption that we use for transportation and we wouldn't have to worry about drilling more.

We can't get away from the manufacture of goods that require petroleum - but with recycling and conservation we will be alright.

Once you move most of transportation and energy production off of oil, you will have solved the oil problem for the US.
Inchworm commercial

Strange how commercials in the 70s (and even the early 80s) used music that was made with acoustic instruments most of the time. Now, kids today can't even tell the difference between a synth and a real instrument.

So by his logic denying the moon landing is okay because they are 'on the right track' and will eventually figure it out?
Matt Simmons: 'Theres another leak, much bigger, 5 to 6 miles away'
06/03/10, 06:30

I'm skeptical of this claim. If there was even a modicum of evidence for it, it would be all over the news but I haven't heard of it. It could be possible but until I see some actual support besides testimony I won't buy it.

The only way another leak 6 miles away could have happened would be if the blowout preventer failure caused enough back pressure to rupture another leak somewhere - and I don't think that's possible.

Their conclusion is that it has to look like another leak is going on - but have nothing to really support it.

I do, however, think that the original leak is enough to cause the oil spill and the underwater plumes.

Oh and there are just about as many differences between baseball and cricket as there are between CART and F1 - try google before you make a half-assed comment next time. It works wonders.

They are done that way for a purpose. All the energy in an impact goes to destroying the car instead of the driver - usually.

For something that was done frame by frame for 4 years, I was expecting something like Kings of Power. This wasn't as good.

I imagine a Frong is a Frog but with more jazz hands.

Very true. I wonder if any studies have been done about the psychology of posting comments on videos. People don't comment until after they've watched it - and in the cases of a video that has something shocking or even politically oriented it usually brings out anger anyway so people are more willing to lash out at each other and are quicker to being offended.

It's also probably why they're quicker to jump to action, jump to conclusions, and quick to rush to any judgment and why videos like this one and others are often spread around before anyone has the time to do research as to what is really going on.

The closer we are to being shocked, the closer we are to turning off all rational thought and civil discourse.

A) I didn't know the owner was part of it
B) This is still rare - and there are plenty of humane ways of killing an animal for food. Living things die in order for us to have food.
C) Again, I do not condone this behavior at all - and never said I did.

But hey so long as it makes you feel like an internet hero to jump to the conclusion that I'm okay with this behavior simply because I didn't know the owner was involved or that because it happened once on video means it happens at every single dairy farm, right?

Most farmers don't do this to their livestock and try to either kill them as quickly and painlessly as possible or make sure when they're alive that they're not sick, etc. Some cows do get sick and die of natural causes though.

Chances are, these were workers at the farm and not the actual owners who bought and paid for the livestock. So, it's about a few degrees worse than being hired at a car dealership and destroying the cars. Only, these animals are alive and can certainly feel pain.

Don't get me wrong, I think that these guys deserve to be hit in the head a few times with a crowbar and stabbed with pitchforks repeatedly - but what I don't like is how people will take this video and think all dairy farms are like this, when they're not.

Five stars for the evil.
