Burrito bites

Hooray for Fridays! And wowee – what a week it has been. The Opec meeting was a stormingly spectacular car-crash of a coming-together. As it descended to the depths of publicly-displayed dissatisfaction, natural gas was experiencing a volcanic rise higher before being struck down by lightning weekly storage. But enough chat for now, let’s chow:

–Special report from Reuters on Asia’s insatiable demand for energy.

–Pictorially, the most frequently used keys on a keyboard…or more philosophically…why QWERTY

–Natural gas in ‘the golden age?’

–North Sea oil production slumps on tax hikes.

Sci-fi quilts.

–Aussies may undertake camel cull to curb methane.

Oil-autocracy and drill! drill! drill! 

–Inventor crashes beer crate bike.

–Technology is key to Eagle Ford boom

12 Clean energy trends to watch for (h/t L Bates) 

–From trash to tank – garbage turned into car fuel.

–Strange but useful human tricks.

Economic literacy quiz. 

–Renewables and natty battle it out post-Fukushima.

–Biofuel from algae, wood chips approved for commercial flights.

–Luggage thieves hide in suitcase – complete with infographic (double h/t J Lenetsky).

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the Week goes to natural gas for coming to its senses as it approached five-dollardom.

The Burnt Burrito Award / Quote of the Week goes to…oh, it’s too easy sometimes…Opec, and ‘one of the worst meetings we have ever had’ – Ali al-Naimi, oil minister of Saudi Arabia.

Have an effervescent weekend!
