    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPSSSSS....

    - Them Brutish have now gone “Full Net Zero”..., and quitted the ”Energy Charter Treaty (ECT)“ that allows Energy Companies to sue Nations Green Economy Policies...!

    - I SAY BRAVOOOO...!

    - NOT good news for Brutish Pirate Oil Adventure in Malvinas Company ”ROCKFLOPPER EXPLOITATION PLC“ though..., that recently was awarded ”Prima Facie” some monies from the Italian State based on that Treaty..., and was counting with that cash to save their sore bankrupted arse...

    - Yet another nine inches silver spike in the Brutish Pirate South Atlantic Oil Adventure Coffin..., I say...


    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    This climate hoax is destroying our world economy. We should encourage companies to exploit all petroleum sources.

    The ridiculous campaign to fight carbon dioxide is ridiculous.

    There is CO2 in cola. Take a cola out of the fridge, open it, set it on the table. As it warms, what happens to the CO2?

    Same thing with oceans... You can't stop it, no matter how much taxes you pay.

    Right...

    - Evil Greta Thunberg..., Machiavellian Tænk and some few other incredibly poweful influencers have conspired against them Benefactorial Seven (Oil) Sisters and..., with just ridiculous lies and humbug..., convinced the Brainwashed Brutish Tory Government to take yet another step closer to our “Diabolic Full Net Zero”Scheme” by quitting that magnificent ”Energy Charter Treaty” (ECT)...

    -Thank God we still have people like my little brother Shicurèo..., that still can Tænk clearly..., take a Coca Cola out of the fridge..., open it and..., hopefully enjoy it...

    Cheers...

    I'll just remind the MP readership the world's fuel supply is affected by reasonable costs.

    Food is a paramount example why the agriculture depends on petroleum.

    Farming also provides beneficial oxygen to our world.

    And I'll just remind the MP readership the world's economy can be rearranged reasonably...

    - Food transport is a paramount example how agriculture depends on petroleum...

    - All transport of BASIC HUMAN FOOD staples must ABSOLUTELY be made cheaper...
    Quite possibly by a High Intercontinental Transport Tax on Sumptuary Foods & Beverages...

    - From the top of my head I could Tænk about super-taxing things as Perrier Bottled Water..., Scottish Whisky..., French Foie Gras..., Mexican Tequila..., Peruvian Pisco..., Shilean Salmon..., Avocados & Table Grapes..., just to name a few... ;-)

    Industrial Farming (including the Meat Industry) has an extensively documented and highly detrimental effect over our Planets atmospheric balance...

    Capisce...?

    Agriculture is our primary defense against poverty, disorder, hunger, and death.

    Food is a paramount example why the agriculture depends on petroleum.

    Farming provides beneficial oxygen to our world.

    BTW I'll prefer a cold beer instead a Coke...

    Shicuréo...

    Sustainable agriculture is a primary source of wellbeing, order, satiation and life...

    Food is the paramount reason why agriculture must depend on good husbandry...

    Sustainable farming provides a beneficial surplus of oxygen to our World...

    BTW I also prefer a cold beer instead of a Coca Cola...

    Capisce...?

    “ I also prefer a cold beer instead of a Coca Cola...”

    Well that's why you're known as Gauchito Drink. Still, it's good to know you aren't able to afford the cheap scotch, and reassuring that you dropped the coke...
