Peak Oil is a hoax, It was used to promote lefties and jihadis. Don’t fall for the hoax.

From http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2011/01/more-proof-that-peak-oil-is-tfbs.html

When BP first formed an alliance with Rosneft in 1998 to develop the Sakhalin fields in the Pacific Ocean, the UK oil giant estimated Russia’s oil reserves at 56 billion barrels.

When BP agreed its share-swap with the Moscow-based energy group last weekend, the estimate was 75 billion barrels, and development of Rosneft’s licences inside the Arctic Circle could increase production enormously.

Such advances undermine the pessimists’ predictions that the world’s oil will imminently run out.

In 1956, when the concept of “peak oil” – the point at which production starts falling – was formulated, US output was expected to fall from the late 1960s.

But new discoveries have constantly pushed that date back.

BP was estimating world oil reserves at 1 trillion barrels 20 years ago: now, despite record consumption, the estimate is 1.333 trillion.

… Russia is already the world’s top oil and gas producer: its equivalent of 18 million barrels of oil a day now exceeds America’s 17 million and is far ahead of Saudi Arabia’s 11 million.

But while the extent of its reserves is constantly being revised upward, so too are those of many other countries.

In 1980, BP estimated Nigeria’s reserves at 16.7 billion barrels; now it says they are 36.2 billion. During that time, estimates of Libya’s reserves have been increased from 20 billion to 44 billion, Venezuela’s from under 20 billion to almost 100 billion and Iraq’s from 30 billion to 115 billion.

New discoveries are running at 15 billion to 20 billion barrels a year, meeting at least half the global consumption.

Drilling off the Falklands could provide a new supply and Cuba may have up to 20 billion barrels, while some estimates suggest America’s outer continental shelf could provide the equivalent of 100 billion barrels of oil and gas.

Despite BP’s disaster in the Gulf of Mexico last year, companies such as Shell are still drilling there to tap reserves 3km below sea level.

The Canadian oil sands are estimated to hold a trillion barrels too and US oil shales have as much.

Iraq, where Shell is developing the Majnoon field, will account for a fifth of global supply growth over the next 20 years, says BP, with capacity potentially reaching 12 million barrels a day by 2020.

Tunisia’s once-suppressed Islamic supremacists re-emerging

Posted by avideditor on January 23, 2011

Jihadis seem to be taking over Tunisia. Usually revolutions in Islamic countries end up religious. Maybe that is why Fatah and Hamas where supporting them.

From http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/01/tunisias-once-suppressed-islamic-supremacists-re-emerging.html

I’ve been harshly criticized for writing here that Islamic supremacists are trying to take advantage of the “Jasmine Revolution” and impose Sharia in Tunisia; now you can add Time Magazine to the ranks of the greasy Islamophobes.

“How Tunisia’s Once-Suppressed Islamists Are Re-Emerging,” by Rania Abouzeid inTime, January 21 (thanks to Maxwell):

[…] As Tunisians revel in their newfound freedom, the long-suppressed Islamists, like everyone else, are trying to figure out what role they can and want to have in the new Tunisia. Ennahdha leaders — including the party’s exiled founder Rachid Ghannouchi, who is waiting to return from London — have been quick to reject fears that they espouse, let alone want to impose, a radical Islamic view.Many Tunisians interviewed by TIME in the week since Ben Ali’s spectacular fall, say there’s room for everyone, as long as their political agendas are clear. “We don’t want to live in a new dictatorship whether it claims to have heavenly or earthly credibility,” says Amene, 22, a university student who has been protesting in Tunis’s main Avenue Habib Bourguiba every day for weeks. A black-and-white keffiyeh, the symbol of Palestinian resistance, around her neck, the Chinese-language major says she doesn’t want the Islamists to be sidelined. “On the contrary. I think everyone can be represented but we want fair and real elections.” (The idea of a new beginning and a clean slate was reinforced on Friday when Prime Minister Mohamed Ghannouchi he would step from office and leave politics as soon as new elections were held.)

During a 30-minute sermon, the imam of Al-Quds mosque urged worshippers to take advantage of “this current change” and vote. He didn’t suggest who they should vote for, but cautioned that this opportunity should not be squandered. “Our future is in our hands,” he said. “The [Arab] regimes don’t want us to succeed, they want us to fail so they can tell their people ‘look at how Tunis has failed.’ We must accept each other and unite, because there is strength in unity. This is our country.”

Le Pen party in France is drawing its support….from the left

Posted by avideditor on January 23, 2011

There is an interesting article over at Pajama’s media which ends with the question, “why do they call it the “far right”? The question is there because all the latest polls suggest that Le Pen’s party is drawing it supporters not from the “moderate right” but rather from the socialist left. This is also the conclusion of a memorandum written by the French Socialist Party’s own public opinion specialist François Kalfon. “According to Kalfon’s prima facie paradoxical findings (as summarized by Le Figaro), the far right “appeals to a part of the working class electorate that was previously to be found on the left.” Pop over to Pajamas to check it out

Only Israel Can Be Accused Of War Crimes

Posted by avideditor on January 23, 2011

An angry Arab mob protested against a statement of French Foreign Minister Michele Alliot-Marie–one that she never made:

A crowd of angry Palestinians protesters on Friday mobbed the car of French Foreign Minister Michele Alliot-Marie as she arrived in Gaza, an AFP correspondent said.

Some demonstrators hurled shoes at the car and one jumped on top of it in a protest over a statement which was mistakenly attributed to the French minister when she met with the parents of captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in Jerusalem a day earlier.

Oddly enough, the article above, by YnetNews, doesn’t mention what the mistaken statement was.

But the Hebrew version of the article does.

Apparently the Arab language version of Kol Yisrael mistakenly quoted Alliot-Marie as having said that the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit is a war crime–as if crossing into Israel and kidnapping a soldier and holding him without allowing the Red Cross to visit him is perfectly acceptable.

Personally, I think an angry Israel mob should protest that the French Foreign Minister does not think that the treatment of Shalit qualifies as a war crime.

Once again, international law is only invoked when it can be applied against Israel.

Exploring Anti Israel Rhetoric, Radical Islamic Propaganda and Anti Semitism

Posted by avideditor on January 23, 2011

Anti Semitism is on the rise fueled by growing anti Israel rhetoric. Just a few weeks ago, a former European Commissioner and a prominent Dutch politician, Frits Bolkestein, called on orthodox Jews to leave Holland because of “the anti-Semitism among Dutchmen of Moroccan descent, whose numbers keep growing”. Reading this statement propelled me to learn more about the state of Anti Semitism in Europe and its connection to the efforts to de legitimize Israel’s right to exist. I asked Professor Dina Porat, the founder and former head of the institute for the study of contemporary Anti Semitism and Racism in Tel Aviv University, for an interview to explore the connection between Anti Israel rhetoric, Radical Islamic propaganda and anti Semitism.

Mother Jones: “Islamophobia” increases hate crimes against others

Posted by avideditor on January 23, 2011

Commies are using the jihadis made up words to enslave us.

From http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/01/mother-jones-islamophobia-increases-hate-crimes-against-others.html

The sole example that everyone’s favorite hard-Left Mother offers for this wild claim is an attack on a black man, but “journalist” Jen Phillips cancels out that example by noting that the idiot yahoos who confronted him took him to be a Muslim, which is why they were confronting him. So in other words, this wasn’t a “racist” incident at all, or an example of “Islamophobia” leading to an increase in hate crimes against other groups.

Why make this claim at all? Perhaps because actual incidents like the one described, of jerks acting like jerks toward Muslims, are so rare. Hate crimes against Muslims are so rare (see here, here and here) that Hamas-linked CAIR has to trump them up to maintain the media myth of Muslims as victims.

Lebanon’s Druze Leader Sells Out Completely, Backs Hezbollah and Syria In Forming New Lebanese Government

Posted by avideditor on January 23, 2011

To bad he is choosing the wrong side. I though Druze where cool and anti Jihadi.
From http://holgerawakens.blogspot.com/2011/01/lebanons-druze-leader-sells-out.html

You know, there was a time when I could respect Walid Jumblatt, the Druze leader in Lebanon – it was after the Syrians and Hezbollah conspired to and did kill former Prime Minister Hariri and at that time Jumblatt blew a gasket and set himself up as the opposition to the Syrian influence. But ever since then, Jumblatt has been caving in, slowly but surely, to the Syrians – I’m guessing he was assured power in a new government but today’s announcement makes his betrayal complete and in my view, on the expendable list.

The Druze in Lebanon will not fair well in a government run by Hezbollah and Syria and this piece of shit is turning his back on his own people. Sure, Jumblatt might be making some secret deals but would you be confident in deals made with two parties that have already committed a high level assassination?
