Because from this article I can’t help feeling they made, indirectly or otherwise. a buck or two off of the incident. For stuff that’s supposed to be in short supply, they sure keep a lot of it in tankers going nowhere.

Will any reduced consumption in the West be outweighed by increases in China? Will the resulting increased scarcity of old-style oil push its price up and make the once-fringe resources increasingly more competitive? Will the more costly alternate sources of energy then also become more competitive? Big money seems to be betting on profitably exploiting the fringe sources of fossil fuels, rather than the eventual dominance of wind, solar, wave, and other alternatives. Should we listen to big money and follow their lead, or hope for something better? Just thinking out loud.

Shortages of paints, fertilizers, diesel, polyester anything..Among other things, buying and trading locally will be the norm. Exporting and importing goods will go by the boards. Even intra-state commerce and travel will decline. The attempts to make use of diminishing and marginal oil sources already sicken the Planet and result in bankrupting “great games”. The next wars over oil will be of unimaginable environmental, social, fiscal savagery..in the meantime, money will be made..this will be the sociopath’s fondest dream come true..and a normal person’s nightmare..
