The Clathrate Minds of Oil-Qaeda

I. Introductory Metaphors

Today, let's use some metaphors to further depict the private empire which we call Oil-Qaeda (The Private Empire's Social Media Hit Squads).

"A clathrate is a chemical substance consisting of a lattice that traps or contains molecules. The word clathrate is derived from the Latin clatratus meaning with bars or a lattice" (Wikipedia).

"Clathrate mind: a brain captivated within a cage of cultural bars, taboos, denial, ignorance, and fear." - Dredd

A clathrate culture is a group, nation, or civilization composed primarily of clathrate minded people.

A clathrate culture in a revolutionary stage is metaphorically pictured in Fig 1,

That clathrate culture is pictured later in Fig. 2.

After those who were previously cognitively imprisoned have escaped, it is closed in.

Only those satisfied with the trance of denial are still intact within those Oil-Qaeda clathrate prison bars.

II. The Scientific Revolution Is Over

A scientist did a study which shows that 99.9% of scientific papers point out that the use of fossil fuels by civilization is the cause of global warming induced climate change (James Lawrence Powell).

Previously, a percentage of 97% was commonly used to indicate the percentage of scientists at large who do not deny anthropogenic climate change (AGW).

Those who are not scientists escaped by believing what they see taking place all around them on planet Earth, rather than believing the propaganda of Oil-Qaeda:
Internal fossil fuel industry memos reveal decades of disinformation — a deliberate campaign to deceive the public that continues even today.

For nearly three decades, many of the world's largest fossil fuel companies have knowingly worked to deceive the public about the realities and risks of climate change.

Their deceptive tactics are now highlighted in this set of seven "deception dossiers"—collections of internal company and trade association documents that have either been leaked to the public, come to light through lawsuits, or been disclosed through Freedom of Information (FOIA) requests.

Each collection provides an illuminating inside look at this coordinated campaign of deception, an effort underwritten by ExxonMobil, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, BP, Shell, Peabody Energy, and other members of the fossil fuel industry.
(Union of Concerned Scientists). Gassing humanity to death with excessive CO2 and other green-house-gases is the criminal act called mass-murder (Oil-Qaeda & MOMCOM Conspire To Commit Depraved-Heart Murder).

Not content with that, Oil-Qaeda also conspires with their lackeys in government to poison the drinking water of thirsty Californians who are suffering from a devastating drought (What Next, Mass Depraved-Heart Murder?).

III. The Power of The Clathrate Bonds

Every notable civilization in history has committed suicide, except for the few who have been murdered by a more powerful civilization (Civilization Is Now On Suicide Watch, quoting historian Arnold J. Toynbee).

But no civilization, except ours (in what is now The Anthropocene, which is fostering the Sixth Mass Extinction) has reached the powerless cognitive state of being unable to stop clathrate minds from destroying all of humanity itself (ibid).

IV. Conclusion

Thus, this is a do or die time to get ourselves free of the clathrate trance of culture (Choose Your Trances Carefully - 3).

Otherwise, the unthinkable minds will take us all with them.

  1. I remember that clathrates (a.k.a. methane hydrates) caused the Deepwater Horizon explosion (link).
