"The worldwide dash for the black stuff underscores Tertzakian's argument that though we may not soon run out of oil, "new supplies will be increasingly dirty, insecure, expensive and indiscreet". "

The pollution from oil drilling and extraction in a couple of hundred years is a big cost for the earth to pay.

For humanity to stop the destruction and its dependence on oil civilization needs to be restructured and that will take the will of the people and drastic changes. Many of the changes will set back humanity many years from what we have been marketed into believing that we need or deserve to live our lives.

The top management of ALL the oil companies and their sub-outlets should be made to live in an area within 1-2 miles of their "work". Let them breath the smellls, eat the food, and drink the water. Make sure that their families go with them. Maybe then they will truly understand the havoc they have created. It still comes down to much profit is to much.
