Exxon’s new “Energy Everywhere” program (satirical video)

From our buddy Andy Cobb, and his buddies, a satirical take on Exxon’s recent oil pipeline leak that flooded a suburban neighborhood in Arkansas.

Here’s Andy’s take on the video:

America’s oil industry is terribly misunderstood. When a lot of people hear “364 pipeline spills in 2012” they think it’s a big mess, like a nearly realized advent calendar of crap. What they fail to see is a revolutionary energy distribution system about to achieve NATIONWIDE COVERAGE.

And remember, that’s not just gas or oil flowing through the streets of Arkansas–it’s dilbit, the thick toxic hydrocarbon stew produced by tarsands. So roam wherever, and take your energy source with you! That s–t is sticky as hell, it’s not like you’re going to be able to get it off.

    Good gravy that’s funny! Makes me want to play “Angry Bergs” at arcticready.com, the Shell parody site. Kill ’em with humor………for freedom!

    EXXON = Climate Criminal

    Oh, isn’t that the truth? Forget about teaching anything that will not be on those tests. And critical thinking skills are totally missing from educational curricula now.
    They are turning out unthinking, uncritical worker-bees. And that’s the whole point, isn’t it? It makes for easily-manipulated workers. And voters.

    All our educational system teaches these days is what is on the next standardized test. Sad.

    BP runs all those commercials congratulating themselves on being such a civic-minded corporation, as if, in the face of civil and possibly criminal penalties, it has any alternative.

    I love the one with the BP spokesman saying, “…and we’ve shared what we’ve learned with the government.” Well, yeah — it’s called the discovery process.

    LOL! Someone on FB is an idiot, and has no idea what satire is. They probably think that Stephen Colbert is really a conservative, as well.
    I blame our educational system for not teaching students about satire, irony, sarcasm, etc. ;-)

    This is why we need to call out the big lie whenever the proponents — including the guy in the White House — claim this is to help America’s energy independence.

    If this was even remotely about ‘energy for America,’ they wouldn’t be shipping the sludge thousands of miles to the biggest oil export-capable ports on the continent. They’d be refining it in southern Canada or in one of the northernmost U.S. states — but they’re not.

    And even if they were, we simply cannot keep burning all this carbon. The climate catastrophe is already underway, and all we humans seem capable of doing is making it worse.

  8. BeccaM says:

    LOL. I guess some folks just don’t think before they type.

  9. Someone on FB thought this was pro-Exxon propaganda!

  10. This leak in tiny Mayflower, Arkansas is a great reminder why we should oppose the Keystone XL pipeline. Let the Canadians refine their own tar sands sludge and export it, instead of pumping it across the U.S. so that Exxon can refine it on the Texas coast, pollute the air, and then export it. If the Canadians want to export it, let them build their own refineries in pristine British Columbia or Nova Scotia.

    Since Exxon has a no-fly zone over the spill in order to control the media, how wonderful would it be if plane-hobbyists or small-drone hobbyists flew through that area with live-cam feeds?
