mv,
scarier is Putin's collaboration with collectivist Muslimism, though. It is no accident that Putin was the first Russocollectivist leader since Stalin in 1943 to visit Persia.
Both of you make good points.

As for the main reason for Russia's dominance, the Russians have known for years now that hydrocarbons are not 'fossil fuels' in being, but really anaerobic in nature. It originates from within the earth's mantle, and can be obtained more easily than anticipated. The west has yet to take this to heart and create their own fuel reserves.

I think that the US's move to nuclear is the first important step in this direction. However, the Euros are just beginning to realize that they are the most vulnerable of all, and have yet to start doing anything about it,.......except the French.

Russia will definately use this 'wedge' strategically, and that is the reason why Putin nationalized the energy industry. He fully expects to use it to dominate it's neighbors AND anyone else who stands in his way. The world runs on energy, and he fully intends to play this for all it is worth.

It will be interesting to see how much longer the Eco-Kooks will have sway over the Jackasses, when our national security is at stake. Stay tuned.

is pursuing scientific cutting edge absurdities again, I see. Petrol is brewed a long way down in the earth mantle, I see. However, 'anaerobic' is the process of transforming organic stuff that has been buried under rock as well. What me interests is, what are the practical applications? Do we just to have drill further down to find unlimited resources of petrol? Does burning petrol made from rock not pollute the atmosphere?

Yawn. ZZZZZzzzzzzzzz
The really criminal part is that we are slitting our own throats by continuing to invest in our own demise.

On the other hand, a good slap in the face might get us off our a**es in terms of getting back to developing and investing in "our own" resources ... and sometimes that's what's needed.

China is already on it with first production capabilities coming on line next year.
Quote:Russia changes the flow of its pipelines, channelling more to China and less to Europe, without any drop in its own revenue. Europe's industrial costs rocket, home heating becomes exorbitant and the EU economy collapses.
The author reads too much of cheap sci-fi. Right now oil pipeline project with China is being developed in Eastern Siberia, but what flows to Europe is located in Western Siberia and North-West. I don't know what should happen that would trigger the redirection of pipelines from West to East . It's not too cheap. Transportation by trains? Too slow.
Don't forget that North Stream and pipleines to Italy are under construction. It will definately increase supply to Europe.
