Its our own fault to a degree, but i would like to see more government intervention in making more sources of energy available. tax the crap out of fossil fuel producers,



Fossil fuel producers would just raise the price of gas accordingly and pass this "extra" tax they would have to pay on to the consumer.

They would make sure it doesn't affect their profits.

I truly believe that with that much profit that they could singlehandedly develope hydrogen or some other form of energy technology.

I have a funny feeling though, that they've already done this. They're just waiting for oil to run or get close to running out before introducing them. Why on earth would they cut into their own business themselves? Companies like that are well managed with long term strategic goals. And their strategy to implementation operations are some of the smoothest in the business world. They've definately got the technology... its just waiting. Or so I think.

that is definatly probable, if nobody was paying attention. what is the point of government, if it is to only allow those with the most cunning, the most success.

If the american government was any government at all, they would use some of the trillions they borrow off of their central bank to purchase these big refinery companies and regulate the rates to the citizens.

government always intervene when you cant pay you bills, but they sure no how to stay clear when nobody can afford to pay them.


If political campaigning was strickly kept to only public funds, not private contrabutions, then something could actually be done about it.

Most people have become such a trip lately. "I am a capitalist and I think that every company that can get away with screwing us is alright in my book"

Are you kidding?

Since when is this what America is all about? I live in Michigan and have seen our jobs go over seas, I have seen a poor 83 year old man burn to death trying to save a modest home with a bucket of water.

We re not a bunch of greedy pigs at the trough, we are free people trying to make a better way for HUMANITY, not big corporations.

Most of you are to brainwashed to see it. If we were not sold up the river during the 80's this nation would be a better place. Other capitalist countries dont do this crap to there people, they put a leash on the corporations so they dont just greedily feed at the trough at the expence of the people that put them there.

Its what the American governement is for. It is why we started this great experiment called America. Not so the elite can build themselves on our backs then turn around and shaft us while our elderly eat dog food and put out fires with a bucket so they dont lose what little they have left.

Those kind of profits while your grandparents cant afford to heat there homes? Does anyone really use there heads anymore?

WAY TO GO EXXON!!!!

Semper



So you love capitalism huh? So much you captialized it.

It's obvious you also worship capitalism which is not a good spiritual place to be in but I think that's not a concern for you.

I'm not anti-capitalism but I HATE -corrupt and unchecked- capitalism.
I also do not love or worship capitalism.. to me it's a necessary evil, one that works best to keep balance in our current state of the world.

Go ahead, love and worship your "capitalism". One of these days your going to have it in a way that you will NOT want.

Cheers.

18 years on, Exxon Valdez oil still pours into Alaskan waters

Crude oil is still polluting Alaskan waters almost 18 years after the tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground, according to a study by US government scientists to be published in two weeks.

The study, an advance of which was released on Wednesday, found more than 26,600 gallons of oil remaining at Prince William Sound. Researchers say it is declining at a rate of only 4% a year and even slower in the Gulf of Alaska.

Maybe they should spend some of that profit cleaning up their own damn messes.
