A note to the “Drill, Baby, Drill” crowd

We live on a rock, magically floating in the air. Real patriotic American astronauts have take pictures of the earth from space. Our rock is not connected to anything at all. So, there’s only so much oil in the ground of the whole earth. Maybe it’s 100 billion barrels, or a billion billion barrels. Whatever. If we keep using it, we will run out some day.

So you see, “Drill, Baby, Drill” is not the ultimate answer… The day after we suck the earth dry, you better hope we have viable solar or bio energy. Or it’s gonna get cold and dark real fast.
