Oil! Conspiracy! Intrigue! Swarthy, mysterious foreigners. This story has it all.

by editor on June 21, 2011

Some of our Canadian friends are spinning a conspiratorial tale about foreign interest wolves in sheep’s clothing interfering in an important domestic industry. Oil, to be specific.

Only the world's 26th richest man would color coordinate his giant sunglasses and his turtleneck sweater

The Toronto Sun outlines the paranoia:

An OPEC billionaire has publicly said what everyone long suspected… Saudi Arabia doesn’t want the world to develop unconventional sources of oil, like Canada’s oilsands.

Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, the world’s 26th richest man, worth more than $19 billion, told CNN he’s worried if oil prices stay around $100 a barrel, the West will look for other sources of oil and Saudi Arabia would lose its dominant position.

Doesn’t mpact us since non-Muslim president Obama discovered plenty of oil in Brazil, not to mention his “green energy” investments that produce quantum-particle-like jobs (they vanish when you look for them.) The Canadians, who sit on vast fields of shale oil deposits, are all wound up, however:

Prince Al-Waleed’s comments were a rare Saudi public criticism of the West. Normally, they leave that sort of thing to their allies — professional environmental lobbyists.

There are about 100 professional anti-oilsands activists in Canada, who do nothing but attack Canada’s oil industry. Typically they pose as grassroots environmentalists. But the facts are different.

Most environmental activists are actually paid professionals. And most work for foreign lobbyists.

Greenpeace, for example, is a $200-million multinational corporation based in Europe. If they don’t raise a million bucks a day in fundraising, they’d have to shut down.

Call us stupid, but we had never considered the fact that Greenpeace’s anti-oil campaign might we funded by oil interests. Duh!

Thankfully, our media has more important stuff on its mind, like reading Sarah Palin’s old emails.

“quantum particle”?

Um, no. “Quantum” refers to unitary energy states, and not having any in-betweens.

But I know what you mean.
