HOW I LEARNED TO QUIT WORRYING AND LOVE SHELL PESTICIDES

And then came the the Dieldrin/Aldrin pesticide revelations a decade later. OOPS. As it happened to be 99+% of all Americans had measurable amounts of Shell’s favorite (and very carcinogenic) pesticide in their bodies. As it happened to be, America was being poisoned, slowly but surely.

When I was a kid a movie came out that was one of Stanley Kubrick and Peter Sellers best pieces of work. It is called: Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

This movie is a dark satire about a crazed American Air Force General (played by Sterling Hayden) that goes looney tunes and launches a nuclear B-52 bomber strike against Russia. This nutcase General is obsessed with what he believes to be poisoning of America by the Commies through the addition of fluorine to drinking water. The fluorine is poisoning our ‘precious bodily fluids’. Slowly, but surely. Of course, everybody knows he is a nutcase and the Commies weren’t poisoning America. The movie ends in nuclear Armageddon. Sellers had a number of roles, including one as an ex-Nazi nutcase scientist. read more

End Mayo Gas Robbery

COMMENT ON THE CORRIB GAS PROJECT IN IRELAND BY A FORMER EMPLOYEE OF SHELL OIL USA.

I don’t quite understand the ‘in your face’ attitude of Shell towards the Irish. I know that there is a bit of history between the Irish and the British, and as a consequence one would think Shell, being an Anglo/Dutch company, would be a little bit more diplomatic. Instead they seem to have treated the Irish like just another third world country. They corrupt the government, try to steal the resources, pay no taxes, and treat the people like crap. Shell is making no friends amongst the Irish and I suppose they don’t care as long as they can manipulate (buy off?) the government. read more
