Burrito Bites

Happy Friday! This week has seen crude oil supported as it focuses on the positives –  decent data out of China and improving sentiment in broader markets due to earnings season, while supply-side concerns are forgotten for now (hark, domestic production at a 20-yr high). As for natural gas, we have seen a swift return to mid-three dollardom due to colder conditions and a storage withdrawal bullishly beyond the realms of  any analyst expectation. Enough for now, y’all let’s chow:

–Shale gas will fuel a US manufacturing boom and it will be in plastics.

–Saudi…California?!

–Don’t try this at work: man outsources job to China, spends day watching cat videos.

–Would exporting the natural gas surplus help or hurt the economy?

–The world’s most efficient light-bulb. (h/t Tim Ward)

–Cat wins stock-picking competition.

–Hot on the heels of yesterday’s post, here is global outdoor air pollution mapped by city.

–There is not enough energy for the economic growth we want.

–Emissions limits could cut climate change by two-thirds.

–Portraits of people blasted by wind.

–US set to produce more of the fertilizers it uses.

–What’s to like about ethanol?

–11 pieces of fantastically geeky furniture.

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the Week goes to fuel economy, which has hit an all-time high record at 23.8 mpg.

The Burnt Burrito Award of the Week goes to Lance Armstrong.

Have a prodigious weekend!
