Where are all the greenies, econuts, tree huggers, wind farmers, sandal wearers, body painters, mung bean munchers, peak oilers, meditators and other assrted tatbags when they are needed? The world is going to crash around us and it's got nothing to do with global warming.
While all the worlds's forces for environmental insanity have been focused on protesting against and preventing the Americans from drilling the vast reserves of oil and gas known to lurke beneath the permafrost of Alaska, the naughty old Russians have just got on with it and drilled Siberia and other such climatically benign regions. As a result, the Ivanovs have oil gushing out of their ears in such a flood that they are about to sign up energy deals with Western European countries which will turn these bastions of 'greenism' into vassal states of the modern day KGB.
"One-and-a-half, two years ago we couldn't imagine our production would be so high.
"We achieved these results because of our alliance with foreign contractors.
"Their specialists teach our specialists while we show them how to work in extreme conditions with temperatures below minus 50."
What is hilarious about this is that not only have the Russians stuck an enormous balalaika fair up the jacksies of the peak oilers but they have taught the yanks how to extract oil from the ground in conditions of extreme frijidity. Let's face it, it's pretty hard to find an oil well operating at minus 50 in Texas, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela or Iraq.
Better still, the story gives the lie to the nonsense and bullshit put about by the same Amerrikka hating nitwits that the invasion of Iraq was all about oil.
Now what was that Genetix was babbling about the other day?
