BP Oil spill in Gallons

Friday, February 4, 2011

Cheesy, Fake, "Oil Company going green" ads.

"We're on it! We swear we are! Oh, we're not? Well you can bet it's rrrrright around the corner. And you believe that, don't you?"

Solar/Alternative energy ideas and campaign promises go back as far as 1886

Nothing rounds out a democratic ticket campaign pledge like these two words together "clean" and "energy."

And nothing satisfies like feigned industry. That cheery commercial that sticks a pacifier in your mouth and tells you "go back to sleep, little one. It's okay, the oil companies mean you no harm. They're on it, solving the problems of tomorrow with clean energy.

Ah, and they're so sexy, these people quietly working "behind the scenes" to "make a brighter tomorrow." Damn! Can I work on her team?

Here's Phil Mikelson, working with Exxon Mobile to help little children learn more. If you watched this video you come to the conclusion that Exxon Mobile is really no different than the Peace Corps.

Here's an explanation of Peak Oil. You'll note the line graph regarding prices. THAT'S why we never hear serious talk about alternative energy.

No, what we hear is everything that makes sense is a myth. Strangely, those spouting this nonsense usually work with a large company either directly or indirectly tied in with the oil lobby. Why do we always listen to the congenitally insane? John Stossel, who has the mental capacity of your average Palmetto bug, delivers the good news in Howdy Doody cadence.

This is how bad the media debate gets.

And so it goes, children. And so it goes.
