ODT miss the bus = and a few thoughts.

An Editorial to-day on Iraq, withdrawal therefrom. Not a bad stab, most of it. Queried why the US stayed so long……… Simple, and the key was a page further on………. the oil rights that China was about to get before the invasion, (up to 12 mbpd, so they say, but let’s say 6 mbpd) have now been let. Why stay longer. No mention that the Bush (oil man) Cheney (oil man) invasion was about oil.

Then – ironically alongside a bolder heading about corporates signing up to the stadium – they note that Dr Susan Krumdiek is to evaluate the impact of peak oil on Dunedin, for the DCC. An acting transport person was interviewed.

ODT – get it together. There is no debt repayment, no neurosurgery, no nothing, without energy. This isn’t about transport – at least, not alone. This is about everything. Infrastructure, food…….

The lack of reality, make that relativity, is staggering. It’s three years since I went in there in person. Gave Dene McKenzie the Deffeyes book, waited. Nothing. Nada, zilch.

And I mentioned here the Dunedin Forum, how the owner (Julian Smith) was there, and a reporter (Loughrey) and between the following brackets, is the reportage of Bob Lloyd’s presentation.

Media?  Hmmmmmm. Don’t get it, or don’t want to get it?  But, Mr Kirkness, as I’ve said to you before, you are meant to be about purveying the truth. Cognitive dissonance and/or religious slewing, have no place in that.
