This video shows just how important it is to ask the right question(s) of those supposedly controlling operations and to hold someone responsible when it goes wrong. There are other times we need to ask questions, some time ago the proposed Keystone pipeline was refused by President Obama. Those backing the pipeline made a public outcry, stating the energy needs of this nation were at risk. Asking the right questions, one gets a better look at operations like these, decisions made regardless of public concerns or the truth being told. And even business needs are not be clearly determined, only the needs of big business owned by foreign leadership wanting to sell to other foreign countries. This it big business at its best, keeping secrets and operating within close quarters to those representing the public, but never answering questions or taking responsibility.
"So emm-nant doh-mane means someone can poop in somebody else's backyard even if they don't want them to?" he asked.’ A child’s mind is simple and relentless at the pursuit of learning, especially when a father is there to offer aid. This father took up the challenge and found answers as to why we do not need corporations telling us what to hear or think. Those voices called out last year to state how much we need the Keystone Pipeline, the same wanting the federal government to assure them of its construction. Here is the thing: if we need it so much, why is there a shortage of investors today?
Economics states if people want something badly they will invest into it, thereby making decisions based on the amount of funds put to work. But every major corporation is not investing in their own projects; instead they continue to have state and federal governments invest for them. And when things go wrong, they state “too big to fail” so there are no regulations offered to prevent them from continuing this stupidity. All the regulators are doing, is showing corporations the means and methods of how they get evidence, teaching how to prevent getting such in the future. So those regulating are only backing up the operations made, forgetting the legal majority rights and the nation’s needs are not covered.
The nation’s energy needs were recognized in the 1970’s and 1980’s, even President Carter placed solar panel on the White House to show the direction we needed to focus on. The fossil fuel industry was outraged, how dare any U.S. President openly state we would not have fossil fuel forever. And today they state we need tar sands to keep prices low, the same which will be processed here and shipped to China while payments go to the Saudis and others overseas. The majority of funds meant to be collected by this operation, are not going to stay in the U.S., instead they have already been sent to others. There is also the question of what happens when the pipeline leaks and all pipelines will leak someday, especially when they get older.
An older a pipeline operates with less profit made, as both maintenance cost go up, and the oil fields drain. Less profit causes companies to sell assets, and once gone the expenses are cut by reducing the labor force and maintenance. But that is not all; the same pipelines are often increased in production thus offering more risk and fewer regulations to protect the public. Marginal utility theory in economics calls the first unit of any product worth more than those of equal value following, thus in the future higher risk are taken to gain more quantity offsetting the lesser value. The small businesses are already seeing how big business is attempting to once more enforce its will.
The small businesses are taking the economy back up-hill and it is with this the new alternative energy systems are moving upward as well. The big operations are not willing to let go, but they are also not willing to either answer questions or openly support their own infrastructure demands. What big business wants is for the public to take the risk they demand, yet the rewards are taken for those who live above the rules. The economy is moving but only because small businesses are focused on developments we do need.
Big business keeps secrets and gets help from the governmental regulators to assure they can keep more secrets easier in the future. But the public is only supported if the questions asked are answered and go directly to the matter(s) at hand. The political agendas do not ask question, nor do they answer any, only demand a public outcry when they are seen as useless. And both the Saudis and China want this pipeline, the regulators will not control it; neither will the corporations take responsibility. So the only reality here is who gets to advertise and promote the garbage of Wall Street?
