A Delaware corporation founded in 2005 to commercialize technology developed by ‘The Energy and Resources Institute’ (known as TERI). [...]
Our vision is to be the leader in bio-technology solutions to the global oil and gas industry and service provider of choice to both independent and major oil and gas producers. Our mission is delivering state of the art bio-technology solutions to improve and increase recovery from mature oil wells and to solve complex problems associated with the production of oil, gas and water.
It’s important to note that TERI, now unanimously known as ‘The Energy and Resources Institute’ was once actually named “Tata Energy and Resources Institute’, but I’ll get back to that later.
Here’s how they announced it in their March 2012 newsletter:
… Button will apply his extensive industry experience in support of Glori’ strategy to acquire end-of-life and abandoned oil fields for increased oil production.
Button is a senior Exploration and Production (E&P) business leader with 30 years of U.S. and international industry experience with Amoco and BP.
Button joins Glori from BP where he served in an executive role and was accountable for the Organization Capability of the E&P Segment Operations, Health-Safety-Environment, and Engineering disciplines. (Source)
Glori Energy’s slogan: “Tomorrows oil from yesterday’s wells.”
Many might think that such environmentally unfriendly “Big Oil” company must be lobbying and spreading lies in the anthropogenic global warming/climate change debate to protect its dirty business.
Well, yes that’s true, but here’s the fun part (you’re going to love this).
The Business Week link above lists a certain Dr. Rajendra Kumar Pachauri as founder of Glori Oil/Glori Energy, Inc., but for some reason, his name doesn’t appear on glorienergy.com (although it did appear on glorioil.com not just as founder but as head of the company).
Well, Dr. Rajendra Kumar Pachauri is none other than the Nobel Peace Prize-winning chairperson of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that was established by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations’ Environment Programme since 2002.
This is the same IPCC that insists that fossil fuels and human CO2 emissions are driving the warming of global climate; that “the science is settled”, that solar cycles have no or very little impact on our climate, that the earth and its inhabitants are doomed if we don’t tax and trade…I mean ‘curb’ our carbon emissions.
Thanks to archive.org (AKA the “Wayback Machine”) one can read his biography on the now disappeared Glory Oil website and find that, apart from being the Director-General of TERI (someone forgot to amend its name there, funnily enough, it’s the only place on the website where it’s still referred to as “Tata Energy Research Institute”).
He also “served on numerous boards and committees including Director of the Oil and Natural Gas Company of India; Director of the Indian Oil Corporation Limited; President of the Asian Energy Institute; Member of the Panel of Eminent Persons on Power; Ministry of Power; Member of the Advisory Board on Energy; Government of India reporting to the Prime Minister of India; Member, National Environmental Council, Government of India under the Chairmanship of the Prime Minister of India; Member of the Oil Industry Restructuring Group, for the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Government of India; Member of the Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister of India; and a Member of the International Advisory Board of Toyota Motors etc…(Source)
So yes, the preeminent “scientist” whose job is to create and promote the “green” agenda’s policy/scientific consensus as head of the IPCC is a Big Oil insider.
No, I’m not arguing that fossil fuels aren’t a plague to the environment, quite the contrary. But I am convinced that the “settled science” according to which human carbon emissions drive our climate is junk-science that serves a very pernicious, highly profitable and sinister agenda put in place by the very banking/oil/military/drugs cartels that plague the planet and 99.99% of its inhabitants.
CO2 isn’t a threat to the environment. Things like depleted uranium bombs used in every US/UK/UN/NATO neo-colonial/imperialist wars, nuclear reactor meltdowns, and GMO pesticide-soaked crops are the real threats.
Anyone who really cares about the environment should focus their efforts on educating their fellow humans about the real issues and not be part of the engineered smoke screen/distraction that is the human CO2 emissions-induced Global Warming/Climate Change scam.
Some of the most attentive readers might wonder why “Tata” became “The” in the TERI acronym, well here’s an article that could give a few clues, and here’s more about Pachauri and the carbon scheme/scam, and more about his Big Oil ties here.
