The reckoning of reality merges with delusional future forecasts to create a modern day tragic Shakespearian play, politicos promising a smorgasbord of prosperity, wealth for all, health for all, education, world travel, a lifestyle made for kings and queens, for the rich and famous, for you, for average Dick and Jane, for everyone and all one has to do to receive these heavenly gifts is to accept, allow and endorse unabated resource extraction, to allow pipelines, drilling, water exploitation and the inevitable poisoned environments...
A mere 100,000 people in Canada work in resource extraction and if one believes energy company propaganda we will all be working extracting oil n gas, there are near 30 million jobs in Canada, 100,000 are in resource extraction...Let me repeat that, there are near 30 million jobs in Canada, 100,000 are in resources extraction...
1/3rd of 1% of Canadians work in resource extraction yet a corrupted, corporation controlled Federal Government advertises and portrays Canada as a deadland, a country without hope of surviving a fragile economic world without giving in and ceding all that is pure, clean and renewable, ceding the air we breathe, water we drink to an industry with a record of pollution, shortcuts, lies and denial, an all greedy profits above all else industry, oil companies couldn`t care less about anyone`s wellbeing, the country`s wellbeing, energy companies care only of personal profits for the few
There isn`t one educated person alive who really believes oil and energy companies will make any country rich, a country`s people rich...Only irrational bought politicians who care only of directorships and Swiss bank accounts talk of such fantasies, elected liars giving their all to sell the lie, a continuance of the Ponzi, a la la land of make-believe and sparkle ponies, a place where time stands still and the future never comes, the skills shortage, the need for millions of workers, all con propagated by the same roundtable players, a circle of lies emanating from the same table, a table consisting of the corporate mouthpieces, current day politicians clinking expensive wine glasses, gobbling caviar and waving expense account write-it-all-off credit cards, and you my friends are picking up the tab..
Time that stands still, Christy Clark claims we have 150 years worth of natural gas, Allison Redford claims Alberta has 150 years worth of tar goop oil, but what does that mean, in what context, does British Columbia have 150 years of natural gas with one LNG plant operating or 15 years worth of natural gas with ten LNG plants operating, numbers matter and math never lies, only accountants, Alberta has how much goop, 150 years worth with resource extractors feeding two pipelines or 30 years of goop being fed into 50 pipelines.....A giant LNG plant in full operation employs 250 people, a pipeline once built employs a mere handful of workers...
150 years is a micro-second of time, peak oil is a reality and yes the USA may become near self sufficient in energy production but that scenario will last not even a decade, the crash back to a finite resourced earth will be painful.....Painful for all, Enbridge`s northern gateway pipeline will be stopped, peak oil, peak gas, peak food and already past peak fresh water, ...Peak oil means not two or four tar goop pipelines but fifty pipelines, fifty pipelines means extracting oil so fast, so furious, so water intensive that 150 years will be 30 years, .....10 LNG plants in British Columbia means 30 years and all our natural gas is gone,.....How is it that our elected politicians never change their numbers, their talking points, how much natural gas do we have, how much tar goop is in the ground, you can`t double, triple, quadruple extraction rates and have the end exhaustion date remain the same, Someone is zooming someone..
Energy companies will make no country or populous rich, they will make themselves rich at the expense of life itself, water, finite water, wildlife, vanishing wildlife, human health, vanishing human health, rising cancer rates, autism epidemics, the children are sick and 150 years is not forever, oil extractors will take the easy pickings first, the last 80 years worth of goop will be deep, ugly and expensive and they won`t be there to assist, there is no more water on earth today than there was 200 hundreds years ago, water is continually renewed, recirculated and refreshed only now natural refreshed water contains caffeine, contains a witch`s brew of pharmaceutical compounds, water purification techniques have failed to keep up with the millions of trace chemicals found in drugs, in petroleum products, insanity on a grand scale, northern Alberta is a toxic sewer, the Athabaska river a cancerous conduit, plans to put trillions of gallons of freshwater, after first saturating water with toxic chemicals into British Columbia`s groundwater and for what.....250 workers will run a LNG plant, times 10 is 2500 workers and within 2 decades we are out of natural gas and fresh water..
100,000 workers employed in resource extraction in Canada, corporations have been predicting for over a decade now a skills shortage, a three card monte game of ruse and trickery, get the Government to train workers, prod universities to train millions of welders, plumbers and mechanics all to join a rapidly growing application for work line up...For when there are millions of extra workers wages can be lowered and lowered, bars dropped and expectations of a rich and famous lifestyle dashed...Automation, robotization and obsoletism will be the future buzz words, these corporate screws use the shortage of millions of future workers ruse to gain leverage today, to gain access today, to remove environmental laws and regulations today, to lower tax rates today while they promise wimpy burgers and enormous wealth sometime way off in the future, there never will be...that day
And the politicians know this, the facts are undeniable, Tim Hortons doughnuts can`t find skilled workers, we can`t pour coffee in Canada, we can`t mine coal in Canada, we can`t build ships, and yes, even the Alberta tar sands are going whole hog on bringing in, bringing in read this well...Cheaper labour, complicit keep your mouth shut, pay your fees, pay the recruiter indentured temporary workers...
A large LNG plants employs 250 person.....A 700 kilometer pipeline once built employs less than 10 workers....Unlimited oil and energy supply to China means the ongoing erosion of Canadian manufacturing, an erosion of standards, of quality of life, increased oil to Asia means more garment workers in India getting burnt to death while working for pennies an hour, more oil to Asia means a never-ending supply of counterfeit goods, fake medicines and a poisoned environment..
150 years of tar goop, 150 years of natural gas in British Columbia and there isn`t a Government alive today that will save money, create future prosperity funds or do anything but spend money faster than it comes in...150 years, or 50 years or even 30 years on a planet earth that is nearly 5 billion years old, oil wasn`t even recovered from the earth until about the year 1900 and by the year 2100 it`s all gone, this position taken by our governments is supposed to bring us comfort, cold or otherwise..
These endless Enbridge ads, the not so subtle threats from the harper Government will continue to fall on deaf ears, by 2020 oil companies, Alberta and the Federal Con party have plans of producing and moving not the 2 millions barrels per day but a 5-fold increase to 10 millions barrels per day, that would require at least 20 more major pipelines and if Enbridge`s northern gateway gets built...Expect a major oil export terminal and pipeline in every British Columbia port...
That`s why our northern British Columbian coast will be defended to the death, to the death of Stephen Harper`s Con oil energy party, or any other political party that threatens our garden of Eden.
We will fight this enemy to the death, we`ll fight this propaganda, we`ll be told that future services are reliant upon oil revenues, health services, pensions, education, yet those services are already under assault, no more home mail delivery, future monetary increases to Health Canada have already been announced slashed in half, future pensioners will have to work longer to receive less, UIC services slashed, science and research slashed, voices muzzled, federal and provincial advertising propaganda campaigns rising exponentially, every year propaganda budgets increase, unabated Canada action plan ads, stickmen ads, oil pipeline ads, CAPP and Government ads merging as one, rightwing propaganda distortion TV channels pretending to be credible, yes I am talking about Sun News...The Sun News teeny-bop short-sleeved wink and nod female propaganda press release readers combined with a bunch of old white-haired haters, a TV station reliant on two advertisers, Stephen Harper`s Conservative party/The Federal Government and CAPP...
6000 people 2 months ago rallied at Science world against Enbridge, thousands more rallied all across British Columbia, 100,000 across Canada rallied against increased oil/tar/pipelines/tankers and the like and our Global BC, CTV and radio stations like the desperate CKNW failed to even report it...The following Monday(a day after the rallies) there was not one word, not a peep, not a single story on these anti-pipeline rallies from any of the big news outlets, and there was a reason why these news outlets played it that way..
Global BC and CKNW in cahoots with Insights West polling outfit and the Federal Government, in a coordinated propaganda ploy was planning a fake-out, Enbridge northern gateway pipeline was rising in public support bullshit gambit, they ran it hard on Global news starting at noon, then at 5:00 pm, continued at 6:00pm, CKNW blathered the same bullshit propaganda all based on a shoddy push/pull poll...The poll asked respondents FIRST whether they agreed with increased oil revenues going to health and education, then they asked similar of increased revenue to governments then finally asked the respondents(once they walked them down the garden path) if they were in favor of oil shipments from BC..and even with all that pushing and pulling polling the numbers were vastly against the northern gateway pipeline..
Global BC`s Facebook page lit up with hundreds yelling and screaming calling the report bullshit, Keith Baldrey refused to look or listen to what Global news watchers were saying as he was stuck in a Twitter counting delirium trance...
There has never been a time in history where a populous has been bombarded with this much corporate propaganda.
10,000 years worth of oil supply might give us a blink of time to react, not 50 years, we will never live in a world where 7 billion people all driving cars, flying in jets, crisscrossing the world, it shouldn`t be encouraged because it can`t be maintained long term..
We can`t with good conscience addict an Asian populace on a product that will run dry in mere decades, and we in British Columbia can`t with good conscience allow oil and energy companies along with Stephen |Harper`s Con party to destroy or risk what we hold dear, what can`t be repaired once broken...
The goop in these rail cars that blew up again is the same goop that would be in Enbridge`s northern gateway pipeline, tar oil cut with paint thinner, Enbridge`s pipeline ruptured and lit will blow up too
And it`s those reasons why there will be not only violence, not only war in the woods but an expulsion of any Federal Government that attempts to move us aside...
British Columbia has spoken......Enbridge`s Northern Gateway Pipeline is dead on arrival!
Happy New Year.
