Has he never heard of CO2? Why would any sane person want to burn all that and turn it into CO2?
Oh, yeah, profit. Fuck the Earth and all future generations, there's profit to be made! I can own sixteen mansions instead of twelve and have a bigger yacht.
Because the only people who make any money are the CEOs with the twelve mansions you mention? What about the tens of thousands of jobs that we could use in our economy, right now - or the fact that energy prices are climbing precisely when Americans are suffering through the toughest economic times since the 1920s?
CO2 is a gas vital to all life on earth. The concentration is very minute, and its effects on global temperature are totally dwarfed by the dominant greenhouse gas, water vapor. The "climatologists" are politically and economically driven, not scientifically.
I love how this comment got instantly modded to troll, when it was simply pointing out some simple truths about biology, ecology, and politics.
Drilling for oil is boring.
