I’m not sure what my thoughts are yet on this whole cyber-terrorism scandal, but it seems like propaganda so far. Who’s to say the United States isn’t doing this exact same type of hacking to China and the middle east? I feel like the news outlets are looking for excuses to get the American public to fear and despise China so that we will soon enough support a war against them. Except this time, people REALLY won’t understand what’s going on because it’s all through virtual space. I wouldn’t be surprised if China was pissed at us. I would be if I were them. We continue to point fingers and make accusations towards China while victimizing the US. What about our actions?
http://www.enn.com/energy/article/45606 Just one in 2012! That’s great. But natural gas is lame. I wish we weren’t extracting it like crazy. And I feel this isn’t that novel of an article. Like, no shit we’re not extracting as much coal. It’s got a terrible reputation and we’ve simply found a new fix. It doesn’t mean we have become more sustainable or efficient from an energy use standpoint, it just signifies that we have moved on to the next resource. It would be like highlighting a trend that less people are buying hummers while more are buying RV’s. Okay…but are we really better off?
