Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death. Hunter S. Thompson
Was the January 2009 Gas discovery in front of the Israeli coast the trigger for hatching the Gaza Flottila crisis?Natural gas: changing the Middle East energy landscape.The Middle East faces a natural gas puzzle: while the region holds 40% of the world’s proven gas reserves some countries find themselves gas short.
Still, additional gas would take up to a decade and billions of dollars in investments to produce since there’s no infrastructure to liquefy gas, said Amit Mor, head of Eco Energy Ltd, an Israeli investor. The country is also unlikely to build pipelines through Turkey and other neighbors because of political tension, especially after the diplomatic fallout following the May 31 raid of a flotilla carrying aid to Gaza that left nine dead, Mor said.
The results of the survey are very encouraging and Israel has the potential to become an energy exporter, fortifying its geopolitical stance, said Mor. But we need to be very patient now and wait for additional finds.”
While the International Energy Agency expects an acute glut of gas during the next five years, production will then need to rise to offset a 50 percent drop in output from existing fields by 2030, Chief Economist Fatih Birol said in November. Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka said in March that investment of $5 trillion will be needed in the gas industry by 2030. Source :Peak Oil - More on the find.

What if BP Never Stopped the Oil in the Gulf of Mexico?Engineers Say Deepwater Horizon Well Could Leak for Years if Not Stopped.
BP cap captures 10,000 barrels a day in US Gulf. The BP well has leaked 189.3 million litres of oil in the last six weeks.To compare the Exon Valdez lost 41.6 milion liters! 189.3 million liters is also 5.588 of the largest road tankers together!
A project of BP to owners of small (er) boats to help clean up the massive oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico is completely ignoring its purpose: not fishermen who are unemployed by the disaster and thus deserve it, but wealthy owners of pleasure to walk with 1200-3000 dollars a day.
I was lucky if I made $1,000 a month before the spill. Now BP pay me $1,200 a day : Fishermen make most of Gulf oil disaster.No one can deny that the BP oil spill has devastated some wildlife. But for a dying fishing industry, ambulance-chasing lawyers, and an anti-colonial President, it is a golden opportunity... and TV crews moan about how hard it is to get oil footage that looks good.Spokesperson for BP????
