Burrito bites

Happy Friday folks! Sorry for no other post this week, I’ve been traveling and distracted by the triumvirate of Pittsburgh, Platts, and Pierogies (h/t Karl Renninger). I have a few in the works, and will double down in the coming week.

As for this week that was in Energyland™, there have been the usual shenanigans in Europe driving crude (…lower), while strong supply and storage sweep natty south.  Snacks ahoy!

–Germany’s renewable energy revolution puts UK in the shade.

–We worry about energy but feel powerless to act.

Fat or fiction – pie charts of pies by calories (and other stuff).

–The oil shale eighty times the size of Bakken.

–Oil prices down? Good news! Oil prices down? Bad news!

50 signs you are a grown-up.

Frac-o-nomics: more gas won’t guarantee lower prices. (h/t Eric Bickel)

–Does oil abundance mean climate doom?

–Japan: caught between the insurance trap and EU sanctions on Iran.

–Energy meltdown looms large over Greece.

–Rampant oil theft ravages Nigeria’s Delta.

–40 of the most powerful pictures ever taken.

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the Week goes to Terri and Matt, who win last week’s quiz and a $25 burrito voucher each – thanks for playing!

The Burnt Burrito Award of the Week goes to the deepening crisis in Europe, and its negative impact on the globe…something’s gotta give.

Have a rockin’ weekend!
