Jews Claim to Set New Record for Energy Efficiency

No Longer Have to Depend on Persians for Eternal Oil?

It's a Miracle!

 
The Jews of Jerusalem claimed a new record for energy efficiency today as their temple's eternal light burned for eight days despite having only one day's supply of oil.

Does this mean an answer to the Eternal Oil Crisis?

As the eternal flame is based on olive oil, this could be a challenge to OPEC--the Olive Petroleum Exporting Countries.

However, doubts were generated as word of the oil miracle was contained within an epistle stating that the Jews defeated the Greeks in a battle over the Temple of Jerusalem.

A spokesman for pro-roadway lobbying group Alpha Alpha Alpha (AAA) put it this way. "Right! And the guys who teach abacus in town can kick the Spartan's asses! And I'm King Antiochus the Fourth!

"And, what if it is true? We're not going to run our horses on olive oil, are we? Sorry, Pegasus, no more hay, here's some olive oil.

"So, is it really such a big deal? Geez, why don't we make an annual holiday of it for Athena's sake?"

Jewish community leader Judah Maccabee responded, "This miracle is just the first of many. We believe that it is Jehovah's will to replace the horse with the hybrid mule. And, by the way, if you have to take a mule on a long trip, you should offset its methane emissions."

But, Britannia Petroleum, multinational producer of olive oil and hay, also downplayed the significance of the Jews' achievement. "Zeus wouldn't have put hay in the ground if he didn't want us to use it. Alternatives to hay might be feasible in ten to twenty years, but not now," asserted a BP spokesman.

Ralph Nader’s "Unsafe at Any Speed" Turns 50!
 
TIME Magazine Lists it as the 21st Most Important Non-Fiction Book

Just one below Donald Trump’s “The Art of the Deal”!

(Oh, it's only a joke.)

 

But This Is Not a Joke:   You Can Get An Autographed Copy of “Unsafe At Any Speed” by clicking here

Here's what TIME said about the book


"He goes after everyone, from the stylists who added sharp, eye-catching (and often face- and limb-catching) protrusions to cars to traffic-safety advisory panels, whose work shifted culpability for road deaths from car manufacturers onto drivers themselves. Unsafe at Any Speed made future presidential candidate Nader a household name and helped push carmakers and the government to mandate basic safety features, such as seat belts for all passengers and rearview mirrors." Click here to read more.

You can also click here to see what Christopher Jensen of the New York Time's had to say about the impact that Ralph and his book has had on the auto industry.

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is
 
Hmm...Climate Change Deniers...How Do You Explain This:

Companies are saying, "Maybe the price of carbon needs to be adjusted..."


At least 40 countries and 435 businesses, including Microsoft, Google and ExxonMobil, already have adopted some form of carbon pricing, but the idea continues to be a source of debate and controversy.


59 wanted it to be a part of the COP talks in Paris... To no avail.
