    While eating a mundane bowl of gruel(oatmeal) and reading the paper, came across this article from the Kansas City Star..

    Interesting observations and commentary... now if they could get those three refineries back on line..

    Good news doesn't seem to get a lot of press with regards to US politics.

    Decline in use of FF's is a good thing. We need conserve more and we can easily do that. If we really put our minds to it we can do a lot more. We also need to integrate more renewable sources and nukes into the grid.

    Sorry anti-nukers. I know the waste is bad, but nowhere near as dangerous as the toxins from FF's and corn-based additives.

    This is a very important development over the past 4 years geopolitically.

    Iran was resurgent from the Iraq debacle - and gained strategic power and influence from it.

    It's time to put the Iranian government back where it belongs. Their economy is almost completely dependent on oil trade.

    I thought Iran was going to implode years ago, after "The Speech". You mean it hasn't yet? :eek:
