The tyranny of female hypoagency or why women nag

Why do women nag? Because it works.

Why do men respond to nagging, watch the video and find out.  (Hint, evolutionary psychology.)

GAO: Recoverable Oil in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming 'About Equal to Entire World’s Proven Oil Reserves'


USGS estimates that the Green River Formation contains about 3 trillion barrels of oil, and about half of this may be recoverable, depending on available technology and economic conditions,” Mittal testified.
“The Rand Corporation, a nonprofit research organization, estimates that 30 to 60 percent of the oil shale in the Green River Formation can be recovered,” Mittal told the subcommittee. “At the midpoint of this estimate, almost half of the 3 trillion barrels of oil would be recoverable. This is an amount about equal to the entire world's proven oil reserves.”
One trillion barrels of oil, the minimum estimate of recoverable oil, would be enough to supply the U.S. with oil for 136 years based on today's consumption rate of 20 million barrels/day.  Of course, consumption will grow in the future but it is still a enough to supply oil for much of the rest of this century.  This might be our road to fusion.

What made the Great Depression great

Great as in big, not wonderful.

It was the financial folly, it was restrictions on trade, but it really was bad in the U.S. because of the dust bowl.

Well now we have our own dust bowl.


The news on that front is suddenly not good: as the FT reports, the soybean harvest in Latin America has been badly hit by La Niña caused droughts. That doesn’t just mean a sharp increase in edamame prices at the local sushi spot and a sharp spike in tofu down at Whole Foods. For much of the world, soybeans are a primary source of protein and because they are used to feed animals, soybean price increases affect many other foods. Soybean is also an important source of cooking oil in baked goods (like bread), and this year’s spike in soy prices is made worse by rising prices for other edible oils.
The US Department of Agriculture believes that soybean production is headed for its biggest global drop ever — or at least since 1965 which is when the US started tracking global soybean production. Prices are now higher than they have been in four years, and could reach record levels later in the year.
This is really, really bad.
