a word of thanks
(Steppenwolf) Dec 08, 16:37
I’ve had the urge to express my gratitude to many of you here for some time, and now seems like as good a time as any. At times I feel as though I’m secretly listening in on the dialogue and commentary of a wise and discerning society. In most our formal education classes we are taught how to function within a fiat currency system, and no mention is made of any alternative: “Just take what we give you, learn how to deal with it, and leave the rest to us.” Many here have a strong sense of what’s true and what’s not, and I think that’s part of what makes this forum so valuable. I’ll never look at dollars the same, nor any commodity, nor anything pertaining to matters of economy, now or in the future. There’s much more going on here than honest stores of value and just weights and measures; your experience, wisdom, insight, wit, and frequent humor foster a good learning environment and reciprocated exchange. Thank you forum moderator and forum posters.

Part: “wanting to get goods into the U.S. To import $1 million of goods, for example, an importer would need ICs that were the byproduct of $1 million of exports. The inevitable result: trade balance.”
@ Mr. Buffit, are you lurking? I think your plan stinks. It’s too late for that.
I and the US do not want a trade balance. We now want and deserve, a 20 year trade surplus.
Now get back to your drawing board, and don’t come back until you have the right solution, or you will be down sized.

I have to agree with you on the global warming thing. I’m not sure I fall for it either.
My son and I started getting into geology and the study of rocks as a hobby. I read an excellent book “Ontario Rocks”, can’t remember the name of the author.
He lays out a graph of the past several million years and the temperatures that they have deduced based on drill cores. It seems that the Earth has a natural cycle of heating and cooling. Each recent cycle lasted approximately 40,000 years. As per the graph we are in the midst of the warming phase of the cycle.
An excellent read and would recommend it to anyone interested in learning about the geology of the Canadian Shield and surrounding area.

I find it amazing that we are (probably) very near the end of the Oil age (as we know it), now that the greenhouse effect is, according to many scientists, becoming a real and immediate threat. We need that oil crisis (if they are right, and I think they are right)! Because greenhouse gasses will never be voluntarily cut (confer the kyoto fiasco)
Especially in Europe because if the climate keeps warming up, the gulfstream will stop flowing (as it has done in the past) and we’ll get Alaska’s climate. The salinity of the water around Greenland is already dropping (because of melting ice & more rainfall on the continent).
If that continues, the (salty & therefore heavy) water there will stop dropping to the bottom and the ‘pump’ that attracts warm water (&therefore weather) from the south (Mexico) will come to a halt.

(Mr.Copper) Dec 08, 16:03
Now you’re really going to think I’m nuts, but I don’t buy the global warming thing.
I think we’re flattering ourselves thinking we can destroy the planet. Mother nature is in charge of that. This planet is huge. Ever take a 5 hour flight? Remember the ice age? One huge volcanic eruption, or large meteor and we’re toast.
I like nuclear energy too. I think we should power cars with it. ūüôā
Sometimes I think of these scientists like a bunch Ted Kaczynski’s‚Äô who simply reject progress, and use a bicycle, and expect everyone else to do the same. Or they are socialist financial planners, who want to redistribute wealth. Note the Kyoto thing? I saw it as making us produce less, so third world countries, exempt, could produce more.
If they really wanted to curb air pollution, they should have curbed globalization, which is bringing progress/cars etc to many places where it never was.
If the info we have received, about the environment, came from the cabal media, or a cabal educated/paid scientist, we have to be suspicious, think out of the box and read between the lines.
Please don’t be mad at me. Just saying what I think. ūüôā

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 22:48 on October 5, 2014  

Deadeye, I’m with you 100%. The environment scare tactics are all propaganda. I remember very well when the communist global powers started that baloney way back at the start of globalization. De-industrialization. There was no other way to get sympathy and support, to move big industries to Japan, Korea, China et al.

All the common folks out there are constantly repeating what was told to them by their media. I remember, late ’70s I think…..”We don’t want the smoke stack” We don’t want the rust belt” bla bla bla bla.

I told my wife 40 years ago….”See what they are up to??” They are going to give manufacturing away and lower our living standards”. (if you are not employed by gov’t or gov’t vendors) My old gunsmith friend was saying the same thing back then. They’re going to lower our living standards with this pollution crap.

Now we have 90% of the population thinking like Ted Kaczynski. He thought high living standards were bad, and wanted everybody to think the same way if he had his way. China today has about 500 million new middle class, with high living standards because they got all the wealth creating industries. Everything they say is exaggerated.

Re your….”Big Government allied with world companies for control of everything associated with money, liberty and freedom.‚ÄĚ

Agreed. I knew that decades ago, and concluded, the ONLY way to short circuit them is to simply boycott anything imported. I tried spreading the word starting in the ’70s hoping the info would spread, but it was like talking to a tree.

My friends started buying VW beetles, and Fiats etc, and Toyotas. It was sickening to me to see them gleefully buying. Only caring about themselves, and not their country and fellow neighbors.

Thank you Aufever.

I didn’t realize that I said all those terrible things that I support and you listed.. I will immediately surrender my Liberty and Freedom to our massive growing out of control government and agencies. I will trust that they correct all the problems and progress America has made for mankind since the Industrial revolution. I and my family will get on the dole and stop trying to be a “Patriot” or responsible businessman as that surely creates too many jobs and interfears with the big picture government plan. Thanks again, Deadeye

PS. I am quite sure the bottom is almost in as the anger always spews forth even from gentle souls when the hurt signals a market bottom. Yes I have some evil oil profits from some new wells that needs investing in some solid beaten down Gold/silver stocks  that are going to survive and make some huge profits in due time wherein I can pay much of it to our government in taxes to support the nair do wells and the self serving fat hog politicians.

“…the real problems that threaten America which is foremost Big Government allied with world companies for control of everything associated with money, liberty and freedom.”

 
Agreed. Evil, poison and death-dealing companies that use governments (and their violence) to feed their greed and need for power. But the pollution they unnecessarily cause is harmless? Insanely dangerous and biologically destructive nuclear power and waste are harmless? All the poisons they dump in water and on land are harmless? All the poisons they spew into the air are harmless? And the vast majority of all this is not necessary for us to maintain our lifestyle.

 
Did BP et al not PROVE that it is insane to drill anywhere 5000 feet below the ocean? That we are nowhere ready? Oh, we will learn from mistakes. People like that are a threat to mankind.  For someone to even consider drilling at those depths is obviously insane. (people who are a threat to mankind are typically classified as insane.)

Is clearcutting the entire planet to build roads and subdivisions harmless?  Is draining aquifers which have existed for eons in a few years harmless?

These are problems without solutions. Trees put oxygen into the air, which we cannot live without.  We cannot live without fresh water.  There is no solution, and no foreseeable solution, for nuclear waste. Unbelievably selfish people have already saddled an unknown number of generations (their descendents) with this problem and this cost.

You need life before you can have liberty and freedom.¬† These things are a direct assault on my life, and most life on Earth.¬† Perhaps somehow you are immune from pollution, and don’t need oxygen or water.

Richard640,I’m certain that you are smart enough to recognize that this so called professional group is a BIAS group with a sinister agenda that is taking over the common sense thought pattern of America. When one deliberately points out that exhaust fumes from a diesel engine is a threat to America then their view is limited to small problems and not the real¬†problems that threaten America¬†which is foremost Big Government allied with world companies for control of everything associated with money, liberty¬† and freedom. The distractions are the small stuff while our Constitution, Liberty and Freedom are being blatantly and openly destroyed by self serving and mis-guided politicians¬†and their money hungry lackeys.

Bottomline, this report is garbage¬†crafted into a slick EPA propaganda article for the gullible. Global warming or cooling whichever is the convenient topic is not caused by mankind and can not be altered by mankind. These tiny cycles within small cycles and imposed within large¬†cycles, then huge cycles of millions of years are not comprehensible to untrained minds and requires an understanding of universe time scales. It is perfect fodder for fogging most brains and makes great propaganda twisted to serve one’s own objectives.

For what it’s worth=If we look back at 2002, every time the U.S. dollar went above its Bollinger Band, and I believe that happened five times since then, it has quickly reversed itself and gone back to normal.

Posted by Richard640 @ 10:30 on October 5, 2014  

“At the same time, the U.S. Dollar Index is trading well above 86 and that has been the major reason for the weakness in gold and the disappointment in gold mining shares.

However, when you look at the strength in the U.S. dollar in technical terms, it is not only overbought, but technicians might note that it is way overextended as far as its relative strength and way above the Bollinger Band. If we look back at 2002, every time the U.S. dollar went above its Bollinger Band, and I believe that happened five times since then, it has quickly reversed itself and gone back to normal.

So I think the U.S. dollar is on its last legs in terms of this rally. You also have to pay attention to the current currency war that has been started with the euro, yen, Brazilian real, all pointing southward. This indicates a new currency war has begun and the U.S. dollar has been the primary beneficiary of that. But that past has shown that the U.S. dollar has only acted as a temporary refuge. And because the United States desperately needs to maintain its exports, the Fed will look to halt that dollar rally at some point.

On the Cutting Edge – Professional Development for Geoscience Faculty

Geology and Human Health    Topical Resources

Potential Health and Environmental Effects of Hydrofracking in the Williston Basin, MontanaSource of Fracking Contamination

Due to the multitude of potential health and environmental impacts of hydrofracking source contamination can be complicated. The well location where drilling takes place is only one piece of the frack puzzle. Since each well can require up to 8 million gallons of water, and up to 40,000 gallons of chemicals, a well site may need up to 2000 tanker truck trips, per frack. A well can be fracked up to 20 times.

Storage for the waste water can take place either on site, in an injection well, or in open air ponds in the surrounding areas. Transport of the waste poses a contamination risk outside the actual well location. Air pollution also extends beyond the immediate drilling site and transportation route, since a by-product of natural gas drilling is methane gas, one of the worst greenhouse gas pollutants contributing to climate change.

Impacts of Fracking

Air Pollution

Methane is a main component of natural gas and is 25 times more potent in trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. A recent study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) monitoring gas wells in Weld County, Colorado, estimated that 4 percent of the methane produced by these wells is escaping into the atmosphere. NOAA scientists found the Weld County gas wells to be equal to the carbon emissions of 1-3 million cars.

A number of other air contaminants are released through the various drilling procedures, including construction and operation of the well site, transport of the materials and equipment, and disposal of the waste. Some of the pollutants released by drilling include: benzene, toluene, xylene and ethyl benzene (BTEX), particulate matter and dust, ground level ozone, or smog, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and metals contained in diesel fuel combustion‚ÄĒwith exposure to these pollutants known to cause short-term illness, cancer, organ damage, nervous system disorders and birth defects or even death .

The Associated press recently reported that Wyoming’s air quality near rural drilling sites is worse than Los Angeles’‚Äďwith Wyoming ozone levels recorded at 124 parts per billion compared to the worst air day of the year for Los Angeles, at 114 parts per billion. The Environmental Protection Agency’s maximum healthy limit is 75 parts per billion.

A 2007 report prepared for the Western Governor’s Association, that inventoried present and future nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide emissions from oil and gas drilling in the west, projects Montana to experience a 310% increase in nitrogen oxide pollution (smog).

Crystalline silica, in the form of sand, can cause silicosis (an incurable but preventable lung disease) when inhaled by workers. Sand is a main ingredient used in the fracking process. The National Institute for Occupational Safety (NIOSH) collected air samples from 11 fracking sites around the country. All 11 sites exceeded relevant occupational health criteria for exposure to respirable crystalline silica. In 31% of the samples, silica concentrations exceeded the NIOSH exposure limit by a factor of 10, which means that even if workers were wearing proper respiratory equipment, they would not be adequately protected.

Water Pollution:

Chemical additives are used in the drilling mud, slurries and fluids required for the fracking process. Each well produces millions of gallons of toxic fluid containing not only the added chemicals, but other naturally occurring radioactive material, liquid hydrocarbons, brine water and heavy metals. Fissures created by the fracking process can also create underground pathways for gases, chemicals and radioactive material.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and United States Geological Survey (USGS) have recently confirmed what residents of Pavillion, Wyoming had been claiming‚Äďthat hydrofracking had contaminated their groundwater.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initially under an emergency administrative order forced three oil production companies operating on the Fort Peck Reservation, to reimburse the city of Poplar, MT for water infrastructure expenditures incurred as a result of drilling contamination. The oil companies appealed the EPA order, but were forced to rectify their violations by a federal judge.

Another scenario for contamination to occur is by faulty design or construction of the cement well casings‚Äďsomething that happened in the BP Gulf blowout disaster. Storage of the waste water is currently under the regulatory jurisdiction of states, many of whom have weak to nonexistent policies protecting the environment.
Soil and Oil Spill Contamination:

According to journalists at Pro Publica, oil companies reported over 1,000 oil spills in North Dakota, 2011, with many more going unreported, state officials admit. The Associated Press also recently reported that the amount of chemically tainted soil from drilling waste increased nearly 5,100 percent over the past decade, to more than 512,000 tons last year. Steve Tillotson, assistant director of the North Dakota Health Department’s waste management division, told reporters that trucks are hauling oilfield waste to facilities “24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

An ExxonMobil pipeline rupture spilled 42,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone River, near Billings, MT. In the aftermath of the spill, ExxonMobil has disclosed that the pipeline has been transporting tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada, which is a low grade, more toxic and corrosive type of oil. Regulators had not been informed that the pipeline was carrying tar sands oil and the disclosure was a result of the spill. Tar sands oil was not in the pipeline at the time of the spill, though regulators are investigating whether or not it played a role in causing the pipeline to corrode.

Earthquakes

Earthquakes constitute another problem associated with deep-well oil and gas drilling. Scientists refer to the earthquakes caused by the injection of fracking wastewater underground as “induced seismic events.” Although most of the earthquakes are small in magnitude (the strongest measured 5.2), their relationship with the storage of millions of gallons of toxic wastewater does little to ease the fears over fossil energy’s long list of externalities.

Health Effects of Fracking:

Show caption
A 2011 article in the journal, Human and Ecological Risk Assessment, examined the potential health impacts of oil and gas drilling in relation to the chemicals used during drilling, fracking, processing,and delivery of natural gas. The paper compiled a list of 632 chemicals (an incomplete list due to trade secrecy exemptions) identified from drilling operations throughout the U.S. Their research found that 75% of the chemicals could affect the skin, eyes,and other sensory organs, and the respiratory and gastrointestinal systems. Approximately 40‚Äď50% could affect the brain/nervous system, immune and cardiovascular systems, and the kidneys; 37% could affect the endocrine system; and 25% could cause cancer and mutations.

Health impacts from fracking are only now being examined by health experts, since such large-scale drilling is a recent phenomenon. Exposure to toxic chemicals even at low levels can cause tremendous harm to humans; the endocrine system is sensitive to chemical exposures measuring in parts-per-billions, or less. Nevertheless, many of the health risks from the toxins used during the fracking process do not express themselves immediately, and require studies looking into long-term health effects.
