    Again, it's your opinion against facts. Can you please point out the inaccuracies in this post:

    (edit: things got borked between the quotes and inline images.)

    You are confusing opinion with facts.

    I'll use pictures this time.

    Actual tyrants are kept in the saddle to protect the interests of big oil.

    Iran was the first real democracy in an oil-rich part of the world until they went against the interest of western oil companies. The US effectively destroyed this democracy in an attempt to protect these companies, resulting in the rule of a bunch of tyrants, the one below being the latest:

    Iran went to war with another tyrant we supported with weapons, to protect our oil interests:

    Until that tyrant went to war with yet another tyranny ruled country that supplied us with oil. We are still friends with the last tyrant of that country, and supply him with weapons:

    We send soldiers into this mess we created, to support the interests of the oil companies:

    There are also millions of locals oppressed and killed in this oil-fueled conflict but we don't give a rat's *** about those.

    Real patriots who truly support decentralized government, decentralized energy supply and freedom generate the power to drive their vehicles from their own rooftop. Independent from global corporations.

    Big oil is scared shitless by the prospect of more sensible people following this example. So they spend about a 1000x this pile of money per year on climate lies alone to protect their position in the global energy supply chain:

    And to spread lies about the impact on our oceans:

    lol, yeah.

    This thread has become extremely long at 184 pages which is becoming inefficient, and with the last couple pages veering again towards a political climate change thread rather than discussion of interesting or new scientific things which we can enjoy learning from, it's probably a good point to draw this thread to a close.

    Maybe a thread would work better on a more specific, focused, scientific aspect of the ocean environment.
