  • Algorithms set to trade on price-trends do not act uniformly. Some shorted oil briefly in response to the growth stock correction but this was a short-lived event.
  • We may see a tighter relationship between $WTI and rising rates. Those who short $WTI to protect growth portfolios may jump on the rising $WTI trend as inflation becomes more an issue of concern.
  • How the physical world works and how individuals find common cause is lost to them leaving them anxious, paranoid and wanting to both control and destroy that which makes them anxious.

Nature favors diversity and abhors uniformity, I.e. there’s a reason the universe has more elements than just hydrogen and our planet has more species than just one. The lesson is that we should use all forms of available energy, including coal and nuclear, in proportion to our ability to do so safely and economically.

o.k., since this mostly a rant article, I will bite.

As Greta has recently observed about World leader's actions on climate change so far, it is nothing but, "bla, bla, bla".

and so far, she is more right about the hydrocarbon market than any oil analysis, CEO, or all the politicians in the World put together.

net zero, eletric scooters, egg beaters, solar tanning beds, etc, are all just political red herrings to greenwash doing nothing.

Oil and gas will be around for a very long time to come. Even if they did what they said they were going to do, it would mean nothing. holding global temps to 1.5 degrees, by 2030, 2050, 2100, based on a fuzzy magic 2009 number, would mean exactly ZERO impact. That ship sailed back around the end of WWII, when most of the world still had not industrialized.

This is adapt or die time, and we will need every last molecule of hydrocarbons to adapt as there simple is no other energy source up to the task.

The alternative, mother nature takes over. She knows how to reduce carbon fast. She reduces carbon based life forms first, that generate all the other carbon.

LONG fang, cop, oih, mur, mor, este.

Great Stuff Todd!
A great quote I found.

“Hydropower depends entirely on nature. Solar and wind depend entirely on nature. Those who believe that the impact of climate change is imminent and we will have more natural disasters than ever, why do they want to be more & more dependent on nature?”
