Scoff if you wish. Do some actual research into this and you will find that the oil companies have been lying abut oil since they started pumping it. How do you get top dollar for everything? You tell people that you had better hurry up before the last one goes. Same with diamonds. There are huge safes filled with diamonds but only a very few are released each year which makes them scarce. This keeps the price of diamonds high. If all the diamonds that they have in those safes were put on the market at one time they wouldn't be worth much more than gravel.<quoted text>
Please, please, please, I beg of you - don't tell us that you teach science at the Right Wing Church School.
In the name of rational, objective, reasoning - please say it ain't so.
The oil companies get top dollar because they have everyone convinced that that the oil is going to run out. It is a fable to keep the energy companies wealthy. Just look at all the huge oil deposit discoveries that have been made in the last two years. We are not going to run out of oil. The earth keeps creating it 24 hours a day.
I know you will have to think differently about this as you have been taught certain things since you were in kindergarten. How could people teach us something so wrong for our whole lives? Anybody that says different is a nut. We all know that oil comes from dead plants and dead animals, right?
You question everything else then why not question oil.
