Exxon-Mobile is running frequent ads on TV claiming they care about teachers and education.  One thought on this could be they are interested in controlling what is taught in universities.   They might cause universities to back off on the Environmental education and focus more on finding oil, extracting oil and refining oil.  Frankly oil sells itself so that is a no brainer.

There are lots of bright young minds with brand new engineering degrees planning to go to Texas, Mexico or Canada and work for an oil company.  They don’t need to be recruited or guided — money talks.  Money also talks to the legislators of various state run Universities.  Like a big circle, politicians give subsidies to oil and educators.

 Geothermal, solar, wind, biodiesel, and other renewable sources of energy aren’t at the Universities recruiting these brilliant young minds.  They don’t have the politically backed funding for that.  Oil and coal receive federal funding and they use much of it for recruiting brilliance and luring them with buttloads of money.

Meantime, we’re building tired old SUV’s in our auto plants and wonder why the rest of the world doesn’t want them.  Because the rest of the world has young brilliant minds too.  They are being recruited into the renewable energy industry and making fast and powerful cars that run on batteries and biodiesel.

Scary stuff from China

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

I read about the folks who are against healthcare reform they seem to belong to the same pile of people who are against cleaning up the environment.  The common denominator seems to be they don’t like the costs of these humanitarian interventions.  Talk about jab my eyes out!  Is it that they figure some people and places are just expendable?  They are poor and uneducated and someone has to clean up our mistakes and make our chemicals.  Look at these pictures from China.  This would seem to exemplify the cost of not caring.

So when you are shopping for a toy for your favorite tot and you notice that it was made in China.  Remember this picture of plastic factory waste going in to what was once a beautiful river.

even more yangtze pollution

Next time you buy an Iphone, computer or various other electronics and some jewelry remember this titanium plant.

Without rules a nations people are allowed to suffer.  Without activism the suffering continues.  Our country allows activism and yet some refer to those activists as socialists.  I don’t get it.

Don’t blame this horridness on the people of China.  Just like here there are good people trying to do good things to advocate for the health and happiness of all people.  Not just those who can afford good health and happiness.  Please see the entire article and all the photos at

If it wasn’t already obvious, then it is surely clear here that our Stuff is made in a Mordor of this very earth, by a people in slavery. In a globalized world, our complicity in their deaths and suffering is no less than those who stood by in the towns of Auschwitz and Buchenwald. These workers’ horrors may be marginally less, but unlike the deathcamps’ neighbours, we cannot pretend we have not seen.
