What can cure fossil fuel dependency and treat bipolar disorder? Oregon tells rail companies to keep oil deliveries secret. Oregon transportation officials are doing everything in their power to keep the state’s residents in the dark about the movement of crude-filled, explosion-prone rail cars.

Oregon tells rail companies to keep oil deliveries secret

The Oregonian won a two-month battle in March when the state Department of Justice ruled that the state Department of Transportation was of course legally required to provide information it receives about the oil shipments to the daily newspaper. Failing to do so “could infringe on the public’s ability to assess the local and statewide risks,” a Justice Department attorney advised. “Risks shmisks,” the Transportation Department replied. It heavily redacted reports it had received from the rail companies before releasing them to the journalists — and then kicked the intrasigence up a notch. The department told rail companies to stop submitting reports because such reports would become public. Grainspotting: Farmers get desperate as coal and oil take over the rails. The U.S. agriculture and energy sectors might be facing a Jets and Sharks situation: Our railroad system just ain’t big enough for the two of them!

2013 in review: the year fracking shook the world. The pumping of water, sand and chemicals underground at pressure to crack rocks and release gas dominated headlines in 2013.

2013 in review: the year fracking shook the world

Fracking for shale gas, even if the process has not actually been producing much energy beyond its homeland in the US, has barely been out of the public consciousness. In the UK, drilling for oil by fracking explorers Cuadrilla in Sussex roused one of the biggest environmental protests in years, as thousands marched outside the village of Balcombe and Green party MP Caroline Lucas was arrested. A similar series of protests was mirrored in Manchester, later in the year.

But it was oil, so it came down brown. Danger pour la société si plus de 20% des énergies fossiles sont brûlées. BP, Shell, Statoil accused of fixing oil prices. The good folks at BP , Shell , and Statoil would never break the law and screw over their customers in a quest for inflated profits, surely. Yet that is the very accusation coming out of Europe, where the industry giants are suspected of colluding to fix prices for crude, biofuel, and refined oil products at artificially high levels, allowing them to reap greater profits than the laws of supply and demand would dictate in a truly competitive economy. Offices of the companies were raided last week by European Commission officials, and the Justice Department is being urged to investigate whether the alleged price fixing spilled over onto American shores.

Do You Know Where Your Oil Comes From? If you drive a car that runs on gas or diesel, you’ve probably thought about where the crude oil that made your fuel came from, especially when you’re standing at the fueling station watching the numbers whirl by and cringing at the thought of your next credit card bill.

Do You Know Where Your Oil Comes From?

According to the news and speeches made by politicians, the Middle East is the major source of US oil imports, right? That’s why energy independence is so important, and why the Middle East is such a critical asset, because instability in the region could threaten oil prices and cause shortages. However, our primary source of oil imports is actually found closer to home.

A lot closer, it turns out; Canada and Mexico both have very large oil reserves and they sell frequently to the US. Other sources include Africa and South America. Global Bioenergies concocte un hydrocarbure sans pétrole.

Hydrocarbures non-conventionnels Puisque nous avons officiellement passé le pic de production du pétrole conventionnel en 2008, tous les regards se tournent vers ces autres hydrocarbures afin de savoir quel sera leur capacité à compenser un déclin déjà amorcé. Pour rappel, sont généralement appelés « non conventionnels » les hydrocarbures qui ne peuvent pas être exploités par des méthodes classiques (simple forage).
