How's this for irony?

OK so here we can see how the process of global destruction is self-feeding. :S
Global Warming Exposes Arctic To Drilling
09/11/2004 12:36 PM - Tom Doggett - Reuters

Rising global temperatures will melt areas of the Arctic this century, making them more accessible for oil and natural gas drilling, a report prepared by the United States and seven other nations said.

It predicts that over the next 100 years, global warming could increase Arctic annual average temperatures 5 to 9 degrees Fahrenheit (3-5 degrees Celsius) over land and by up to 13 degrees (7 Celsius) over water. Warmer temperatures could raise global sea levels by as much as 3 feet.

Such a change would threaten coastal cities, change growing patterns for vegetation and destroy habitats for some wildlife, but an energy-starved world would have new areas for oil and gas exploration, according to the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment report.

The Arctic region, particularly offshore, has huge oil and gas reserves, mostly in Russia, Canada, Alaska, Greenland and Norway.

Warmer temperatures would make it easier to drill and ship oil from the Arctic, the report said. It did not attempt to quantify the costs of drilling and shipping Arctic oil and gas, or estimate how high energy prices would have to be to justify drilling in the region.

"Offshore oil exploration and production are likely to benefit from less extensive and thinner sea ice, although equipment will have to be designed to withstand increased wave forces and ice movement," the report said.

However, land access to energy reserves would likely be restricted due to a shorter season during which the ground is frozen hard enough to support heavy drilling equipment.

"The thawing of permafrost, on which buildings, pipelines, airfields and coastal installations supporting oil and gas development are located, is very likely to adversely affect these structures and increase the cost of maintaining them," the report said.

Energy companies would find it easier to transport oil and gas because the warmer temperatures would open sea routes.

"By the end of this century, the length of the navigation season...along the Northern Sea route is projected to increase to about 120 days from the current 20-30 days," the report said.

However, a longer shipping season will increase the risk of oil spills, the report warned.

The report was commissioned by the United States, Canada, Russia, Denmark, Iceland, Sweden, Norway and Finland. It concluded that global warming is heating the Arctic almost twice as quickly as the rest of the planet in a thaw that threatens millions of livelihoods.

So then I suppose it's a bit drastic to shoot "every corporate motherfucker," now isn't it?

It probably wouldn't hurt.

Actually blah blha blah.

There's no answer to solve this delema, no leader to lead us through our problem, only a total mass realization will save our home.

Show me how saving humans is a good thing.

Might as well shoot the corporate scumfucks in the knee.

Agree?

I'm sick of this bullshit about how just because someone works for a corporation, they must be evil fucks. IT'S A FUCKING BUSINESS! There is nothing inherently good or bad about corporations. I'd wager that the computer you're using right now was built by a corporation.

What about 'em? Do you think every corporation uses sweatshops? Furthermore, would you rather see their workers unemployed and starving to death?

No, I would rather see these people growing their own food and not having their resources limited because of corporate influences.

Many of those people have the option of working on farms, but instead choose the sweatshops. Who are you to deny them that right?

i.e. Perhaps they don't own enough land/equpitment to feed and support a family, or they own NO land, their soil is polluted (by whom?) or the soil is leached of nutrients/no available irrigation?

Infinate possiblities.

Corporations are selfserving SS7, they aren't helping anyone.
