Burrito bites

Despite the end-of-year lull in general markets, interesting tales about energy, the weird, and the wonderful continue to pass by like high-speed trains. In this last week of the year we have seen crude move into triple digits on geopolitical concerns, only to retrace again on Euro worries, while natty has broken below $3 for the first time since September 2009 as strong supply and warmer weather reigns. But enough from me, it’s time to eat: 

–Everything you need to know about the shale gas revolution but were too afraid to ask.

–The top ten oil stories of 2011.

–Quiz time! What do you remember from 2011

Trading places. Emerging markets are set to import more than developed ones.

Special report on Iran, sanctions, and oil.

–Infographic on Facebook friend facts.

– goes bananas (h/t Jenn Hammond)

–One field of heliostats to rule them all…

–Seven wacky truck spills.

–US highway traffic has declined for 47 months in a row.

–How oil prices affect food prices. (h/t @EnergyMrktIntel)

–Most desirable neighbor for 2012?

–Fastest-growing jobs in the US 2007-2011 = Energy.

–Is energy the Achilles heel of BRICs?

–Famous pictures digitally altered.

–US corn being turned into ethanol is now only 40% of total crop.

–Natural gas from waste water?

–Cat scores 128 on Fruit Ninja for the ipad.

The Burnt Burrito Award of the Week goes to escalating geopolitical tension, from Iraq to Iran to Syria to Kazakhstan to Nigeria…and the list goes on.

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the Week goes to this wonderfully festive picture of Mr. T and Nancy Reagan.

All the best for 2012….Happy New Year!!!
