GlibReaper just found out that a friend had a stroke.

What if the Great White Savior was one of us? Just a stranger on the bus.

Colonialism isn't dead, it just wears a corporate logo instead of a pith helmet.
May 19 GlibReaper commented on Why Is Shell So Bent On Losing Money in Arctic Drilling?.
From hell's heart I stab…

…ilize oil prices for an energy hungry and climatically irresponsible world.

@70 yeah, you actually can call up City Light and ask for "only clean electricity" to be generated on your account. It's called Green Up! http://www.seattle.gov/light/Green/green…

Besides driving an electric car charged with clean energy, people can eat less meat and consume less dairy. There's a great deal we can do individually. However, all of these lifestyle choices won't be enough if Shell goes ahead and drills the Arctic for oil which will be exported to Asia and India. Same goes for increased coal and shale oil exports.

The United States has the highest energy usage and emissions per capita in the world and has benefited tremendously from a history of energy-intensive industrial activity. Trying to extract monopoly rents through onerous intellectual property regulation such as the TPP and TTIP is counterproductive to maximum emission reduction globally.

@67 This may just be what the international spotlight brings: thirsty shitmoths

@68 Perhaps it is a concerted effort. What does astroturf smell like when it burns?

@27 if you take a bit off the top, more people will just move into the rage-vacuum.

Basic physics, yo.
May 8 GlibReaper commented on This Guy Found an Unexploded "Blast Ball" on Capitol Hill After May Day.
Better or worse than leaving a rifle on the trunk of a patrol car?


I'm going to go with "worse" because a grenade can easily blow off someone's hand. The rifle may not have even been loaded.
May 5 GlibReaper commented on Port Commission Holds Closed-Door Session, Won't Publicly Discuss Shell's Arctic Drilling Fleet Until May 12.
The legislative declaration of the 1971 makes for some good reading in light of this embattled Port Commission's questionable meeting practices:

The legislature finds and declares that all public commissions, boards, councils, committees, subcommittees, departments, divisions, offices, and all other public agencies of this state and subdivisions thereof exist to aid in the conduct of the people's business. It is the intent of this chapter that their actions be taken openly and that their deliberations be conducted openly.

The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies which serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created.

[1971 ex.s. c 250 § 1.]

May 4 GlibReaper commented on The City Just Put a Major Roadblock in Front of Shell’s Arctic Drilling Rig.
"Roadblocks" don't work particularly well against ocean-going vessels.
Apr 23 GlibReaper commented on Did a "Bomb" Train Full of Volatile Crude Oil Pass By Tuesday's Mariners Game?.
Holy shit @10 you are an absolutely fuckwitted troll.

Yes, oil trains have already derailed in Seattle (Interbay; no spill fortunately) http://crosscut.com/2014/07/oil-train-de…
Apr 8 GlibReaper commented on Can a Flotilla of Kayaks Block Shell's Arctic Drilling Rigs in Seattle?.
Anyone interested in signing up for a flotilla training can visit www.sHellNo.org and contribute what they would to the rental costs.

People are also welcome to bring their own kayaks.

Rise Up!
