I gave the thread about a 30 second look. Snorted and exited.
Sigh, in the interests of honest dialogue, I will explain my personal views on this and virtually every topic that ATS covers.
(If your not really interested, then ignore the rest. LOL)
I do not trust links or quotes.
First, quotes are almost always out of context.
Second, "Links", are generally used as debate points/talking points and rarely-in my experience-provide valid, verifiable data. (The exceptions prove
the rule, IMO).
There is no point in trusting a link to an individual that also has a vested interest that matches the argument of the original poster. Especially,
when there's no way to easily verify/debunk that link or it's data.
No, this isn't foolproof. Valid links suffer guilt by association.
As a result, I prefer dialogue. ( Those that attempt to use 'dialogue' in an attempt to push an agenda prove out quickly and that ends the
Occam's Razor is my 'bible' when it comes to these debates.
So back to the thread. LOL.
I posed my points to show a 'possible' alternative. Supported by my own logic. It proofs nothing. It does, however, gives those who aren't suffering
from "idee fixe" a moment of pause....I hope.
So we have a CEO of a huge Corporation-the absolute top of the Corporate food chain stupidly suing to stop fracking and giving ammunition to his
Occam's razor-simplest explanation: He intended this. It was deliberate. He is against fracking as anyone.
Am I right? Who knows? The remainder of the 'Razor' now applies...
Last point. By sheer chance-fate?- I met an extremely powerful oil industry individual a few years back in Alaska who, during a conversation, causally
stated "the Oil Industry is not monolithic".
There was more to it-I will P.M. it if your interested, as it's lengthy and off topic- but that epiphany led to a series of realizations of how this
planet really works, by the way.
Re fracking? The jury is still out...
