Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment

Everyone is getting hot because of Oil-Qaeda
Hear ye! Hear ye!, The Court of Public Opinion is now in session.

The charges against Oil-Qaeda are: government subversion, mass murder, deceit, and reckless disregard for the health, safety, and lives of the billions of people of the planet Earth.

All done to put cash into the coffers of Oil-Qaeda, as it takes for its own profit, the well being of an entire planet and those who struggle to live on it.

Ok, so "who is this Oil-Qaeda?" you might ask -- so let's get that description by reading some posts that others have shared about it:
Just like those running asbestos, lead paint, and tobacco companies who knowingly continued to do harm for profit ... energy executives ... are the business equivalents of terrorists.

In fact, for years they’ve funded a massive campaign to deny the reality of climate change ... we should think of them as oil-Qaeda ...
(Tom Dispatch, emphasis added). Those who are doing the following are indeed terrorists:
More than 100 million people will die ... by 2030 if the world fails to tackle climate change, a report commissioned by 20 governments said on Wednesday.
...
It calculated that five million deaths occur each year from air pollution, hunger and disease as a result of climate change and carbon-intensive economies, and that toll would likely rise to six million a year by 2030 if current patterns of fossil fuel use continue.
...
"A combined climate-carbon crisis is estimated to claim 100 million lives between now and the end of the next decade," the report said.
(New Climate Catastrophe Criminality Policy, quoting Reuters, emphasis added). Has our society become so "sophisticated" that mass murder is ok, but killing one person gets a murder prosecution?

Perhaps there is a social dementia that the murderous Stalin recognized, and that he figured would protect his mass murder of his fellow citizens:
"One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic." - Joseph Stalin

"It is forbidden to kill therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets." - Voltaire
Is there something in the public mind that causes us to see the ongoing mass murder results of Oil-Qaeda as a statistic instead of seeing it for the terrorism it is?

Just how brilliant and sophisticated is it for the federal government to be flying drones around the world killing "suspected al-Qaeda" members, as well as innocent civilians who happen to be too close, but then helping Oil-Qaeda conduct mass murder in a business-as-usual manner?

According to a paper published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society, this will bring certain doom upon current civilization:
But today, for the first time, humanity's global civilization—the worldwide, increasingly interconnected, highly technological society in which we all are to one degree or another, embedded—is threatened with collapse by an array of environmental problems. Humankind finds itself engaged in what Prince Charles described as ‘an act of suicide on a grand scale’, facing what the UK's Chief Scientific Advisor John Beddington called a ‘perfect storm’ of environmental problems. The most serious of these problems show signs of rapidly escalating severity, especially climate disruption. But other elements could potentially also contribute to a collapse: an accelerating extinction of animal and plant populations and species, which could lead to a loss of ecosystem services essential for human survival; land degradation and land-use change; a pole-to-pole spread of toxic compounds; ocean acidification and eutrophication (dead zones); worsening of some aspects of the epidemiological environment (factors that make human populations susceptible to infectious diseases); depletion of increasingly scarce resources, including especially groundwater, which is being overexploited in many key agricultural areas; and resource wars. These are not separate problems; rather they interact in two gigantic complex adaptive systems: the biosphere system and the human socio-economic system. The negative manifestations of these interactions are often referred to as ‘the human predicament’, and determining how to prevent it from generating a global collapse is perhaps the foremost challenge confronting humanity.
(Can a Collapse of Global Civilization be avoided?, emphasis added). The greatest threat to civilization is Oil-Qaeda, together with those who have a fetish for fondling nuclear weapons, i.e., Nuke-Qaeda, the clone "friends" of Oil-Qaeda.

  1. The lyric "I can’t even remember what it was I came here to get away from" reminds me of the pilgrims then and now.

    Not the same.

    We have become the people we wanted to get away from.

  2. "The report's roots can be traced to the The Global Change Research Act of 1990, which required that a national climate assessment be conducted every four years, with a report issued to the president and Congress. The legislation led to the formation of the U.S. Global Change Research Program, an inter-governmental body involving 13 federal agencies and departments, including the Departments of Commerce, Defense and Energy, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Science Foundation, among others." (National Climate Assessment).

    Soon after that law was passed Oil-Qaeda got busy deceiving the public (The Exceptional American Denial).

    Time to put Oil-Qaeda out of our misery.
