As long as we haven’t yet managed to find alternative energy sources to cover all our needs we still need to transport oil and natural gas from one place to another.
How we do this is the result of the continuous struggle between the ‘tree huggers’ and the ‘global warming deniers’.
Without the tree huggers our planet would be a lot dirtier that it already is
while without the ‘deniers’ it would offer us a life a lot less comfortable than the one with which we have already been accustomed.
It’s our job – yes, ‘ours’, the ones whose asses are still comfortably glued to the proverbial fence – to maintain a reasonable equilibrium.
