I spent most of the 1980’s in Germany. It was almost impossible to buy any coffee filter that was not made by Melita. I never knew where the name came from.

I sure didn’t expect a site named oilprice.com to advocate green solutions to the problem of US energy independence. Even if you don’t buy all or any of that, they highlight the legal, structural, and regional difficulties of protecting oil markets from disruptions by events in foreign markets.

“U.S. Weighs Paying Drillers to Leave Oil in Ground Amid Glut”. One very real possibility is that when the wells are turned off, when the time comes to turn them back on again, the oil that was being pumped previously has drifted away to parts unknown. Petroleum is situated in porous rock, not in some giant underground swimming pool. So, if the short term solution for our current over production is chosen, it may well lead to a unanticipated solution, closing wells permanently. This would set into motion more drilling to try and recover what remains.
