Canada’s Oil Future Has Been Hijacked



How Did Alberta’s Oil Future End Up With Pipeline Companies? How did the value of your house and your future employment opportunities end up in the hands of owners/operators of buried steel tubes and a single federal regulator? Why does the fate of Canada’s largest and most valuable resource industry – and the millions of Canadians who depend upon it – rest with commercial pipeline companies and the National Energy Board (NEB)? What about all the other stakeholders?

Potential for more oil found in British waters

Image result for brexit wins

A “very significant” reservoir of oil was uncovered during a pilot program in British waters west of the Shetland Islands, a British-based company said Friday. “A very significant hydrocarbon column of at least 2,000 feet is present” in the Lancaster field in British waters, Hurricane Energy said in a statement. Robert Trice, the company’s CEO, said the pilot well confirmed a column of oil that was more extensive than the company first estimated. “Our initial assessment of the well results, which are subject to refinement of the provisional data, suggest that the Lancaster field is likely to be significantly greater than the 200 million barrels,” he said. Preliminary testing yielded a natural flow rate of 6,600

How humans are driving the sixth mass extinction
Scientists have been warning for decades that human actions are pushing life on our shared planet toward mass extinction. Such extinction events have occurred five times in the past, but a bold new paper finds that this time would be fundamentally different. Fortunately, there’s still time to stop it.

The Fed’s Only Escape Is to Trash the Dollar

Harry Houdini was the greatest escape artist of the 20th century. He escaped from specially made handcuffs and underwater trunks, and once escaped from being buried alive. Now, Janet Yellen will try to become the greatest escape artist of the 21st century.



Yellen is handcuffed by weak growth, persistent deflationary trends, political gridlock, and eight years of market manipulation from which there appears to be no escape. Yet, there is one way for Yellen and the Fed to break free of their economic handcuffs, at least in the short run. Yellen’s only escape is to trash the dollar. Investors who see this coming stand to make spectacular gains.

How do we measure sustainable development? Two new indexes, two very different views

It’s been a busy day for launching new country rankings. Today (July 20), the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) released a 427-page report ranking countries by 77 indicators tied to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals approved last year. The SDG index averages countries’ performance on those goals. Each goal is assessed by a mélange of indicators, including poverty and obesity rate, traffic deaths, literacy rate, seats held by women in national parliament, access to water and electricity, unemployment, mobile broadband subscriptions, wastewater treatment, and carbon emissions.
