IT KILLS THEM GETTING IT OUT - Drilling and pumping oil is a messy occupation playing with carcinogenic fluids, that traditionally makes millionaires of those prospectors. Hence the name "Black Gold" and "Texas Tea." Years ago oil prospecting was respectable, today those investing in oil are deemed by many to be climate criminals - because it kills us when we burn it.
at November 2021, Charles
Koch is the Chairman and CEO of Koch Industries. Alongside his now-deceased brother David, Charles Koch has a lengthy resume of
malfeasance. The multibillionaire is the longtime head of Koch Industries, a refining,
petrochemical and pipeline company labeled by Greenpeace as a “kingpin of climate denial”.
G20 abusers will say they had no choice. They needed to keep burning coal and oil for their economies - just like the camp guards at the many concentration camps, they were forced into business as usual - in the case of the camp guards, they argued they were just following orders. But that is not true. We all have choices. There are clean alternatives, such as solar and wind power. There is no need to keep building coal fired electricity generating stations, and no need to drive carcinogenic petrol or diesel vehicles that contribute to lung cancer. We have hydrogen fuel cells, electrolyzers and zero emission electric vehicles.
One thing stopping transition, as in allowing climate criminals to carry on regardless (Blah, blah, blah), is political corruption, where it is alleged that some world leaders have their hands in the pockets of the fossil fuel giants. We've all heard of party political donations, but there are other kinds of bribes. Procurement fraud is one example of slush funds built into economies, with large brown envelopes full of cash or other in-kind favors, for those prepared to turn a blind eye.
It is not too late to redeem yourself Mr Koch. The renewable energy industry welcomes you with open arms, difficult as it will undoubtedly be to transition. Old dogs can learn new tricks.
ADDICTED TO OIL - Oil and coal deposits are the Banks of Death for cowardly administrations, who it appears, refuse to even try to to fix the climate chaos, for fear of the unknown. Are they Chicken?
KINGS - At the Paris talks in 2015 the United States
joined three petro-states -
Arabia, and Kuwait -
to water down the UN’s commitment to a scientific report
that examined the damaging global effects of 1.5 degrees of
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman described Russia, Saudi
Arabia, and the
as “a new axis of evil.”
MOBILE GAS CHAMBERS - The oil barons know about cancer victims dying of lung cancer from carcinogenic and particulate vehicle exhausts, as they reap export dollars in return. During the Second World War, concentration camp guards used petrol and diesel truck exhausts to gas prisoners, before Zyklon B.
The Nazis began experimenting with poison gas for the purpose of mass murder in late 1939 with the killing of mental patients (“euthanasia”). A Nazi euphemism, “euthanasia” referred to the systematic killing of those Germans whom the Nazis deemed “unworthy of life” because of mental illness or physical disability
COAL & OIL COMPANIES - In seeking to extend the use of fossil fuels, the world's oil, gas and coal companies, and the nations that continue to develop coal generation for so-called cheap energy, are turning the whole planet into one giant carcinogenic gas chamber.
