    @GabbbarSingh The hypothesis inherently assumes that the aliens belong to a more resource rich planet than us. No human would let a zoo remain if it were to have tons of crude oil underneath it. Similarly no alien would let Earth be peaceful if we had resources they want.

  • From Samir_Madani:

    Libya is a lot of work to track. They have many ports shipping small amounts.During March we tracked 1.2Mbpd in exports, but it took 54 vessels to move that amount.That’s 688K barrels/tanker on avg.It’s not their fault though, as they have a broad range of crude oil assays.

  • From dlt57:

    @SteveDaines @JoeBiden The construction of the pipeline would indeed create thousands of jobs. But they will be temporary. Once Keystone is completed, only 35 permanent employees would be needed to operate the pipeline at a significant environmental cost. It is the dirtiest of crude oil. Facts Matter
