RAPE OF THE ARCTIC: Why the Fossil Fuel Barons NEED Global Warming

As arctic ice melts, vast untapped reserves of oil, natural gas and coal are becoming easily accessible. Open water in the arctic also means cheap and easy Atlantic-Pacific transport of said oil, gas, and coal.

Most Marylanders can expect their electric bills to go up by $743 a year--a 74 % increase! The Maryland legislature deregulated the industry in 1999. As a result of this sweetheart deal, BGE was absorbed by Constellation Energy and required to begin buying its electricity on the open market.

Recently, 8,600 U.S. companies have been taken over by foreign ownership, while 20 percent of all U.S. assets are held by foreigners. The politicians were silent. Now, a United Arab Emirates’ enterprise will soon be operating stevedoring companies in six U.S. ports, including Baltimore’s. Its Mayor, Martin O’Malley, almost broke a blood vessel complaining. However, he didn’t say a word while the preceding British outfit was doing the work. Go figure!
