Default Re: Disaster in Japan... question about oil price

BTW just saying the polar icecaps may be melting but there is new ice forming in Antarctica just as fast as the other is melting. Vicious cycle of Nature.

and dvrich the way you are throwing your insults around you are the one who sounds more immature, kinda sound like a whiny little 14 year old in High School trying to make someone feel sorry for you. Truth is with the comments you made they sounded like they came from the mouth of Al Gore himself.

That aside back to the oil thing. Oil goes up when greedy people want more money. Also I think we might have all forgot the comments made by Obama a couple years back when he said he wanted Gas prices to go up to try to get us off of oil. (He is the Real Problem in this situation)

When asked if High gas prices were helping Americans

Also in 2007 Pelosi blasted President Bush about gas over $3/gal but where is she now blasting Obama... She cant blame that one on Bush anymore. in Feb Mar Apr May June of 2009 Gas prices here were down under $2.30/gal and at their lowest in Apr 2009 Reached $1.36/gal

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=tbzzeuYJteY

and you cant forget this. Cant blame Republicans in the WH anymore and look where prices are

And also where are our lower prices he spoke of in Apr 2008


Oh and here first 2 years in office Graphs




All in all I blame greedy oil companies, and Politicians.

Im tired of paying almost $65 to fill my truck up from E...
When I bought the truck in May 2009 it was costing me under $30 to fill up from E


Lets hope I dont receive the ban hammer

PS. I cant stand Pelosi

And Here

alright everyone, settle down a fuzz. This thread dont need to turn into a basher.

The basic point im trying to make here is that anything that happens is an excuse for oil prices to go up. And I for one am tired of it. But what can I do, what can We do...nothing. I found that the best solution is to buy some of that new lube that the gas stations sell, buy some before you pump your gas and its not so bad

well honestly i dont have a problem with nuclear power.. part of the problem with waste is that the U.S. doesn't recycle spent fuel. so once it is done it is done. I think nuclear power is the way to go right now anything to get away from coal power. and as far as earthquakes go I really dont see a problem with building plants near fault lines as long as they are built to withstand beyond what the quake is... as for the wave nobody can prepare for a wave that travels at mach oh my god.. I think they are doing all they can do with what they have to work with seeing how every plant is designed with so many back up systems its insane. cause you have main power and control rods to disrupt fission.. and then cooling pumps on another power grid and then if that fails it has huge diesel generators. plus back up batteries that can be switched out when they die. and they might have more than that. it just depends on how far you want to go. as far as the reactor design goes.. the thing is like 40 years old so i wouldnt bash it.. its a good design that works.. as far as spend fuel storage pools being where they are its not a bad idea seeing how you have to move rods pretty quick into the pool before they get to hot so i can see why it is there. plus the rods arent designed to stay there forever.. just until they cool off a little until they can be taken to a proper storage pool which is somewhere on that facility.. i think the people working at the plant are doing a great job and i would give anything to help them even if it meant dying.. I hear people joke about it and its not funny... not at all.

That's the problem today among many other things.

Greed.


If we can drill our own oil well (which we can) and have people who will manage it correctly and prevent oil spills and not get careless and also having leaders who won't let greed get to them then things will be ok BUT that's only in a perfect life.

You also got to think. Places without earthquakes will also have tornadoes,etc.


Plus don't think a earthquake won't happen in your town.

Up near Atlanta, they had a minor Earthquake years back.
