The petroleum era is coming to an end. According to Harry J. Longwell, an Executive Vice-President and Director of Exxon-Mobil, writing in World Energy v.5 No 3 of 2002, confirmed that the discovery of oil peaked in the mid 1960s. The rate of discovery is now one tenth what it was.
Discovery peaked 30 years ago. It takes no feat of the imagination. It takes no feat of intellect to conclude we now face the corresponding peak in production.Petroleum production has peaked and is now declining. The decline, according to Scientific American, will be rapid. By the year 2020 oil production will have dropped to half what it was in 2001. Demand will turn the remaining black gold to platinum. Some of the main remaining oil reserves are concentrated around the Caspian sea. American oil interests would like a pipeline through Afghanistan to bring the approximately 4 trillion dollars (even at 2001 prices) of Caspian oil to tankers. It is vitally important that America have access to that last pocket of oil.

addressing the British House of Commons.
When I first posted my pipeline motivation for the Afghan invasion, shortly after 2001-09-11, nearly everyone called me crazy. However, history has proved me correct. George W. Bush’s one accomplishment in Afghanistan, it turned out, was the one thing he promised that he would never do. On 2001-12-26, Karzai met with the president of Turkmenistan and the foreign minister of Pakistan to work out the final details of the $3.2 billion Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline George W. Bush’s friends had sworn would never be built.
However, according to Mike Ruppert, also since that time, extensive research conducted by FTW (From The Wilderness publications) has shown that Caspian reserves have been verified by drilling results over the last three years to be only around 40 billion barrels and are a major disappointment. The Afghanistan war did not have nearly the payback hoped.
Currently, the [Afghanistan] pipeline is a go-project thanks to the junta’s [Bush/Cheney’s] installation of a Unocal employee (John J. Maresca) as US envoy to the newly born democracy whose president, Hamid Karzai, is also, according to Le Monde, a former employee of a Unocal subsidiary. Conspiracy? Coincidence!It is obvious from his cabinet choices who George Walker George W. Bush really works for and it is not America. George W. Bush himself founded an oil company Arbusto Energy. He was a former shareholder of the oil company Spectrum 7 Energy. He was the former director of Harken Oil and Gas. His father, George Herbert Walker Bush Sr. is from the Carlyle Group, Dick Cheney from Halliburton Oil (whose customers included Unocal, Exxon, Shell and Chevron, plus Saddam Hussein, Colonel Muammar Gadaffi and Ayatollah Ali Khomeini), Dan Evans from Colorado Oil, Zalmai Khalilzad from Unocal, Condoleezza Rice from the board of Chevron where she was their expert of Kazakhstan. Chevron even named a 129,000 ton oil tanker after her. Steven J. Griles was a lobbyist for Occidental Petroleum. Donald Evans Secretary of Commerce was CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Donald Brown Oil. Donald Rumsfeld acts as if he were honourary CEO of Occidental Petroleum. Spencer Abraham, aka Jabba the Hut, was a tireless promoter of drilling the Alaska Wildlife Refuge. In 2005-04 Bush gave $10 billion to his buddies in the oil companies in subsidies even though they were making record profits and the deficit was breaking another record. You get the picture.
~ Gore Vidal (1925-10-03 2012-07-30 age:86)
About the only cabinet member without connections to big oil or big tobacco is Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Secretary of Defense. PNAC (Project for the New American Century) Richard Perle, of the Defense Policy board, is implicated it taking bribes from Boeing to secure a military contract. He was forced to resign as chairman in an earlier scandal.
To them, assuring access to this supply of oil and the trillions in profits for American oil companies, is easily worth a few thousands of American lives. Without that oil, America will no longer be a world power. It is just that the average American citizen is too stupid to realise that. They have to be tricked into going to war.
In a similar way, America wants control of Iraq’s oil fields. It can use terrorism as an excuse to annex them.
The potential profits are astronomical. In the last gasps of the petroleum age, gasoline will be hundreds of dollars a gallon, yet it will cost little more to produce than it does now. People have murdered family members for considerably less money.
Note how America has continued to occupy Afghanistan long after any threat from the Taliban has been squashed. Why are they doing this if not to protect their access to Iranian oil and to protect the pipeline corridor?
Note how George W. Bush kept offering lame excuse after lame excuse to invade Iraq. Comedian Bill Maher lampooned him on them. George W. Bush has not the balls to tell the truth. He wants free Iraqi oil for his constituency, the oil companies.
What George W. Bush should be doing instead if he had America’s interests at heart instead of Harken’s would be to reduce her dependence on foreign oil, ratify Kyoto and get on with converting to new clean sources of energy the way the Japanese are.
