5. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
"US Energy Sec: World wants stable oil prices
ROME — U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu said Saturday that the world wants oil prices to remain stable, warning that a new spike could harm the economic recovery.
Speaking in Rome where he is attending an energy meeting of the Group of Eight industrialized countries opening Sunday, Chu said that both the oil producing and the oil consuming countries have an interest in keeping energy prices stable.
"Another spike in oil certainly will have very big consequences" on the world's economy, he said at a joint news conference with Italian Industry Minister Claudio Scajola.
Last year, prices for crude oil and other energy products reached record highs, fell sharply when the global financial slowdown hit and then rose again at the first signs of economic improvement.
Oil supplies have been in flux recently. OPEC countries have boosted exports by an estimated 200,000 barrels a day in the four weeks to June 6.
Also on Saturday Chu signed a bilateral agreement with Italy to cooperate on carbon capture and sequestration — a process to store greenhouse gas carbon dioxide underground.
"The issue of carbon capture and sequestration are issues that the world has not solved," Chu said. "We need to capture the carbon ... and sequestrate (emissions) safely and we have to do this in an economically viable way."
The cooperation deal includes common projects, development of new technologies and exchange of experts and researchers. It also provides cooperation on developing green coal technologies."
The black horse of the apocolypse is about world financial domination and control by means of world rule of law (balances are the symbol of the legal profession, as the serpants entwining the staff is the symbol of the health profession) With a World Court in the Hague, a World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and a POTUS who is apparently taking marching orders from the world planners, it becomes frighteningly apparent that we are participating in the last days even now!
