Bragging rights
About the only thing I think I can comfortably brag about is winning the 13th Annual Dead Baby Messenger Challenge Race. Not the downhill, the long race. I did it with a slow leak in my front tire, so every 2-3 miles I'd have to stop and pump more air into the front tire. Then I routed myself quite badly through unfamiliar parts of south Seattle. I had to be one of the last racers in (probably the actual last) but I got the manifest and all the stops right-so I won the race. A pretty sweet prize package worth about $600 bucks-yeah! Thanks Dead Baby for a slim victory I am going to brag the sh*t out of for the rest of my life!

Hey Seattle, I want you to stop thinking this can be reformed or somehow made sustainable or safe, ok? Stop mining oil, stop expanding the global oil industry, that would make the world sustainable and safe, ok? 
"Right now, railroads cannot find enough insurance to cover a major disaster that could generate billions of dollars in damages to a city, because insurers don't want the risk. BNSF said what is not covered by limited insurance policies can be self-insured by corporate funds. 

The railroad industry and the U.S. Department of Transportation said the number of oil trains will continue to increase. Should Congress vote to lift laws against exporting crude oil, and if export facilities are built on Washington State's coast, the number of oil trains running through Washington state will increase even more."

from contra info The movement against the airport calls for a massive day of action on Saturday 16th January. For the Nantes region, a bike-tractor and walking march is being prepared. We call on support committees and all the opponents to imagine right now how to participate on this day with similar actions (or others) in their regions, or to join us. Since there won’t be an airport, for the immediate abandonment of eviction procedures: book yo...

NO! 150 million barrels of oil would be burned up in just over ONE DAY of global petroleum consumption. Can you fucking KKKarniggers get a grip here? We can't keep making more petroleum powered vehicles and increase our consumption of nonrenewable, harder to source petroleum energy. WHAT THE FUCK PEOPLE?!
"World consumption has been on a steady rise for decades and neared 94 million barrels a day in 2014."

HOW TO GET ARCTIC OIL
FIRST BUILD AN ISLAND WITH GRAVEL
For the Liberty project, trucks carrying gravel would travel by ice road to a hole cut in sea ice. The trucks would deposit 83,000 cubic yards of gravel into 19 feet of water. The work surface would be 9.3 acres surrounded by a wall, providing a barrier to ice, waves and wildlife.
Standard rotary drills would extract oil. Hilcorp would move oil by a 5.6-mile undersea pipeline to shore and overland to the trans-Alaska pipeline.
Hilcorp projects a peak production rate of up to 70,000 barrels of oil a day within two years of initial production. Over 15 to 20 years, the company predicts it would yield between 80 million and 150 million barrels of oil.

Arctic offshore drilling by Royal Dutch Shell PLC drew protests on two continents this year, but a more modest proposal for extracting petroleum has moved forward with much less attention.

We are thinking if Nissan and Tesla Powerwall could work together to create solar power stations instead of gasoline ones and all industry moved that way, why not solar cars and generators instead of gasoline and diesel? No pollution and no war. Back in India, students are developing solar cars too. We just razed a half a million dollar house in a prime Bangalore area to make way for trees and plants and people called us insane. Now our block has groundwater. Just about losing greed for a million more that would burn the earth and eventually - us. We chose trees over extra money.

USA PROPAGANDA MACHINE CONTINUES TO LINK
USA OIL INVENTORIES WITH WORLD PRODUCTION
USA INVENTORIES ROSE 4.8 MB DUE TO
USA OVER PRODUCTION
Stockpiles just keep rising
Yesterday another report revealed that oil reserves were rising in the US – a bearish indicator for the ongoing global supply glut.
The rise mostly took place in the second half of the week and followed the US energy watchdog's report of a surprise surge of 4.8 million barrels in overall domestic crude oil reserves last week. In response, WTI fell to a six-year low of below $35 a barrel and international counterpart Brent crude fell close to one per cent to a new seven-year low of a fraction above $37.

I wake up in a nightmare reality everyday I awaken to the sound of cars. Wherever I was before, there were no cars. The cars wake me to this world. I immediately realize I am an alien stuck on Earth, or maybe a cat trapped in a human's body, I loathe the sound of cars, huge carbon farting motor machines barreling  by about twenty feet from the wall separating where my head lays from the outside world, a "freeway" prison. I further realize I am surrounded by mentally ill, dependent and delusional people who go along with and rationalize the priority of cars over human powered or mass transportation. Everyday people tell me nothing can change and I just have to accept this reality. Or that I need to organize and educate "the community" to change transportation policy. That's the advice I really get from people who drive cars. Really KKKarniggers? Who voted for cars? This is a fucking mechanical pathogen devouring this planet at a rate incommensurate to actual human survival, ok? Like I have time to sit down with every car owner and explain the toxic impact automobiles have on Earth's biosphere? Or that car collisions account for as many deaths as guns do? Or that bombing the oil refineries of terrorists will only continue to inflame the cycle of geopolitical violence in the Middle East, hurt civilians, and destroy their air, water, soil, and future ecological security?  Who's speaking in objective, scientific, mathematical, theological, ethical, economic and ecologically explicit  real and clear terms here? What do you have to say for your defense KKKarniggers, seriously? I made up a fucking narrative cosmology out of a black hole in my heart to describe you singular blobs of car slobbering donkey slaving asses that push Oil Daddy Capitalism's black dope addiction on the whole world, what the fuck KKKarniggers? You ain't come back at me with shit except your petty, petit and utterly nice whitey pussy society whipped objections to my language. Does any KKKarnigger care to comment for themselves? KKKarniggers are all the same color of yellow apathy so it isn't about race, ok?
I want to talk about the impact of car privilege on our planet's biosphere, I don't want to engage in culture war and identity politics anymore, it's a real waste of time.

Externalities

Geneticist David Suzuki points out the fallacy of mainstream economics - and makes an emotional appeal to economists to include the biosphere and life itself in their economic models.

"Economics is so fundamentally disconnected from the real world, it is destructive. Conventional economics is a form of brain damage."

This is a satellite image of the flaring in the Persian Gulf from oil refineries. Pakistan's coastline lies on the Arabian Sea at the mouth of the waterway and recently had an earthquake that caused an island of methane mud to form off the coast of Pakistan.

OIL ZOMBIES ARE CANNIBALS
To stay afloat, zombie companies have to halt drilling and use revenue from existing production to pay interest and other expenses.
When asked about the zombie situation, investors and experts told the news agency that SandRidge Energy Inc., Comstock Resources, and Goodrich Petroleum Co. are topping the list.
"They can just be zombies. They can pay their interest, there's no growth and they are cannibalizing their assets," Thomas Califano, vice chair of the restructuring practice at the law firm DLA Piper, told Reuters.
https://www.rt.com/usa/325563-oil-gas-zombies-prices/
US crude oil production declined by about 60,000 barrels per day in November and will continue to drop until the end of 2016, a new forecast says. Meanwhile, the slump is forcing US companies to shrink production, creating gas and oil “zombies.”
