    Fracking Blows Up Investors Again: Phase 2 of the Great American Shale Oil & Gas Bust
    In 2019 through third quarter, 32 oil and gas drillers have filed for bankruptcy, according to Haynes and Boone. Since the end of September, a gaggle of other oil and gas drillers have filed for bankruptcy, including last Monday, natural gas producer Approach Resources. This pushed the total number of bankruptcy filings of oil and gas drillers since the beginning of 2015 to over 200. Other drillers, such as Chesapeake Energy, are jostling for position at the filing counter.

    Chesapeake has been burning cash ever since it started fracking. To feed its cash-burn machine, it has borrowed large amounts and has been buckling under its debt for years, selling assets to raise cash and keep drilling for another day. But its debt is still nearly $10 billion. Its shares [CHK] closed on Friday at 59 cents.

    The Collapse of Civilization May Have Already Begun?
    Scientists disagree on the timeline of collapse and whether it's imminent.

    “It is now too late to stop a future collapse of our societies because of climate change.”

    These are not the words of a tinfoil hat-donning survivalist. This is from a paper delivered by a senior sustainability academic at a leading business school to the European Commission in Brussels, earlier this year. Before that, he delivered a similar message to a UN conference: “Climate change is now a planetary emergency posing an existential threat to humanity.”

    Burger King is running out of zesty sauce because of climate change
    The 2019 horseradish crop was battered by unusually harsh weather, and the effects are showing up in fast food joints.

    A shortage of Zesty Onion Dip at Burger King has distressed many people, who have turned to Twitter to express their frustration. What's apparent, however, is that not many people understand why their favorite condiment is in short supply and will not be available in large quantities until spring 2020 – and that has to do with horseradish.
