If Oil is destroying the planet? Then WHY does the planet manufacture it?
I'm guessing it's similar to George Carlin's theory about Plastic. The Earth Likes it - it's just another one of her children.

Hydrocarbons are baaaaaaad, I tell ya!
Oil is as natural as water. As Land, as anything else we see before us. It's what we DO with it...Responsibly [I might add]...that defines it's worth to us.
As with anything the Earth gives us, is there for us to use for the Human species, and others to survive. There was a time not so long ago when we used rivers for toilets...we cleaned up our act (At least this country has)...
Stewardship folks. Good stewardship is the key. NOT the non-use of a resource there naturally.
Oh man....now there you go spouting off about being responsible, and telling people that a natural resource is....well....natural.....jeez, the next thing you are going to say is that mankind is not inherently evil and out to destroy mother earth...how could you!
One might ask the same thing about liberal Democrats. If they keep screwing up the country, why are they allowed to remain in politics?
I see. So it is your precept that MAN...and especially the 'Eevill Corporations' set out to destroy that which sustains them?
Do *YOU* really want to have that as your answer? Seriously? It is my HOPE that this is *Tongue-In-Cheek*
Because the alternative is so much worse.
Which is WHAT exactly?
Here's a quick history lesson for you. Way back in 1932 a communist newspaper I have decried the fact that only 2% of this countries population controlled 76% of the nations wealth. Then, the democratic party gained control of both houses of congress and did so for a continuous 40 years, they also controlled the presidency for a large percentage of that time as well.
So what do you think the percentages were after that 40 year run? ONE percent of the population now controls 90% So who were the democrats working for? 'Cause they sure weren't working for the little guy!
