Religion. Some say that "God put oil on this earth for us to use up and when it is all gone, we will be taken up to the Heavens". Seriously. No, I mean seriously. Ask around and examples of this abound in the evangelical communities. I bet the Duggars and their 19 children will be outfitting them all with Hummers on their 16th birthdays. God also put sunshine in the sky every day and we are free to use as much of it as we want for our food production, warmth, energy, etc. I have to think the "oil-is-here-for-us" crowd just doesn't get the full picture. Oil is here for us to use temporarily as we learn new ways to capture energy from the environment. Oil is temporary and so are the ignorant.
