I'm afraid to say that I doubt him being serious in the issue of women's rights here in Saudi Arabia..
I think that his theory of ethical oil is actually based on commercial interests..
But he cant say that! All what he did was addressing the issue of women's rights in his theory! which can't be addressed this way.. Why? because he labeled Venezuela as unethical country too.
*You know, there no Sharia law Venezuela*
Also @ 4:22 he mentioned that women in the United Arab Emirates can not go outside without a veil besides that they need mail guardians.
The UAE is a beautiful secular country I've been there and sometimes I feel like that's even an Arab country! It's a multiethnic secular society where women have the freedom not to were a veil and they do what ever they want without a male guardian.
Besides I've seen many westerners who enjoyed that secular society..
Also, they have to focus on other ethical tool which can be used as a pressure to push the unethical countries for serious ethical actions, rather than using oil as tool..
Unethical countries ≠ unethical oil.. Not at all..
*Oil is unethical tool to be used against these unethical countries in my opinion!*
You are probably right there, and I didnt know UAE was mentioned in the clip, thanks for letting me know.
Sorry for leaving some typos!
I heard there are some many good Universities in the UAE.
Your comments are hilarious Lexie.
As we all know electricity (power) can also be generated from wind, wave, and solar.
I think Canada should do to do a better job of outsourcing the natural resources such that it goes to the locals.
I'm wondering if you would consider that it's better to extract electricity from natural resources rather than tar sands, or other shale resources.
You know as well as I that there is enough wind and solar resources to go around.
Coal and bitumes is polluting the atmosphere.
There are many storage methods available for generating electricity. One is pumped storage.
Another that may benefit Canada with all the mines is another
I read another talking about pumping compressed air into mines during low demand times to be released at high demand time to spin turbine generators.
My complaint is that the petrochemical companies have a stranglehold on power generation. Here in the U.S. they get huge subsidies while the government denies grants to study and develop alternative energy sources.
I read that about 1/4 of carbon pollution that's destroying the atmosphere and effecting climate change is because of poorly insulated buildings, mainly households. A program to insulate residences might go a long way to reducing some of these problems, just as higher gas milage and lower emission regulation for cars helped reduce automotive pollution.
What is the C5+ gas that you are talking about?
