from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The price of oil is surprisingly low — dipping below $30 a barrel recently. That’s not a bad thing for consumers who like to drive and have warm homes in the winter and for the prices of a whole lot of other things. But let’s not get too comfortable with hydrocarbon-based fuels for too long. There are a few concerning things about burning fossil fuels — even if we’re not worried about carbon dioxide emissions and climate change. However, the alternatives might not be that great, either.

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

simple math

100,000lbs per hour = 438K tons per year. That’s California.

590K tones per year. That’s Four Corners, NM.

So one is a serious emergency ermagad godda fixit like now ernerz.

The other is something going on since 2003 that nobody can be bothered to check on.

Good article! Please! Tell us more about things that have been happening since 2003 that nobody cares about that are just as important as the great disasters of yesterday.

I can, however, say that ‘spewing over 100,000 pounds per hour of natural gas into the atmosphere for months’ is the sort of ‘gimme’ phrase that Kirk used to use to make comedians’ heads explode.
