The high temperature of the rotting material, along with the heaviness from the layers of rock and sand that covered it caused a chemical reaction, which created Crude oil.
It should be stated that child starvation will step in to stop the attempted exponential growth. Famine is some arbitrary large amount of starvation. Since we do not see a significant amount of famine, then we assume that we have “outran Malthusian forces”. This is nonsense. The amount of child starvation will be proportional to how fast we are able to expand the environment, for example by pumping more oil out of the ground, and how many children we average. The child mortality we see throughout the world today is exactly what one would call “Malthusian catastrophe”, if we properly understood the concepts Malthus was so close to understanding.
After this year, companies are expected to dramatically increase production as new oil projects are introduced to the oil business, coming online with full production capacities.
What does this mean for poverty? Well, if we properly understand what I attempted to explain above, we would expect to see groups with horrid adult life expectancy and high child mortality rates compared to other groups in the same environment if we were over breeding and our numbers were at the limit. Today we have 1 environment, the whole Earth because of cheap transportation. Clearly there are groups with these symptoms.
That said, oil coming up way short would have tens of millions looking for how the political elites blew the modern world apart. It might be a very good idea to be, well armed, really. Folks are going to be hungry and angry. At desperate – lives will be lost. Those with – will be attacked by those without.
Along with providing insight for oil spill response, this paper discusses environmental factors which can contribute to the success or failure of a cleanup operation.
He writes with a clear purpose and that is to argue that America's "securitization" of oil and its willingness to use military force in order to secure its supplies of oil have been a major mistake....
It was first said that little oil had actually leaked into the ocean but a little over a month later the estimate was 12,000-19,000 barrels of crude oil being leaked per day.
“With independence following WWII, the oil, oil fields, refineries and supplies seized by the Japanese invasion force were returned to the Indonesian Government, and the new era of Indonesian energy exploration and production began,” according to the Indonesian Petroleum Association.
Fast forward ten thousand years and what we see is that all of human history and pre history deals with humans living in poverty. Usually this involved the masses living at about the equivalent of two to three dollars a day while the elites used dominance to exploit a substantially higher living standard for themselves.
They found that war has a long lasting effect on the covariance, whilst terrorist attacks have a one-off shock to the price of oil, the DAX and the CAC, whilst the S&P500 and the FTSE100 were not significantly affected due to the fact that they are more efficient markets and a deep enough to withstand the consequences of a terrorist attack....
The Deepwater Horizon drilling rig along the Gulf of Mexico is an oil-spill that resulted from an explosion that is under contract with BP, leading up to over million barrels of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico....
You bet there is a difference. Poor people in the USA are somewhat likely to have a motor vehicle. There were several periods in which I was low income but had a motor vehicle, and was sharing living space with other single men of low income. And I felt no need to blame anyone or any society for my struggles with money. And it was often at the end of the day that I had a sense of satisfaction that I had hustled and and found odd job to supplant a part time job or intermittent job. I feel my character improved quite a bit from the experience and when the engineering world finally opened up for me I was able to excel to a high degree, by hard work, intense effort and self-studies to supplant my formal education. And to show I’m not just blowing smoke, one of the books I studied was the famous Burr Brown book “Operational Amplifiers” decades ago.
We ventured back, after our wild scramble for safety, to find things in a terrible mess...We started shoveling the mud away-when, without warning, a lot of heavy mud shot out of the well with the report of a cannon…In a very short time oil was going up through the top of the derricks, and rocks were being shot hundreds of feet into the air....
