I routinely see and hear people protesting the cost of gasoline and or diesel, and in the next breath, protesting methods used to extract the oil from which these are made due to environmental concerns.
Do they not know that the only oil left is increasingly difficult to find and inherently dangerous to produce when found?
So, which is it going to be?
Meanwhile, another off-shore well has blown out and is spewing fuel--methane this time--into the atmosphere. (hat tip to Collapsenet).
And I have no plan that involves parking my pick-up truck, until it's forced upon me.
