    I guess that’s why the PCC clings to petroleum technology. “Five to nine billion barrels in Cuban waters” is just too juicy to resist. Meanwhile the climate heats up and the oceans degrade. It’s to be expected by capitalist pigs, but Cuba? What the heck happened the country’s great natural energy resource, the sun? It’s just too depressing for words.
