Hate it, fight it, stomp your feet and threaten to leave all you like, but you can’t stop the green movement. Face it, the world is going green whether you like it or not, the science may be invalid, the advocates may be ignorant, the economic impact may be calamitous, but it’s happening, and people are moving more and more away from carbon-based energy sources. Obviously, the oil and gas industry is not going away any time soon, but all those lost jobs are not coming back, either. In fact, more downsizing is inevitable, so instead of whining and crying about how stupid and unfair it is, why not divert some of that excess energy into developing and perfecting alternate sources of it. Look around you, more hybrid and electric vehicles, more solar panels everywhere, on homes, trailers, boats, more atomic and nuclear facilities. I mean sure, it’s not perfected yet, it’s more expensive, it’s less reliable, but these are things we should be working on, and supporting, not more pipelines, and refineries. It’s happening, the world is going green and you can’t stop it, time to stop the doom and gloom and accept the reality, the days of $100 barrels, exploration and drilling, and six-figure O&G jobs are over. Get busy livin’, or get busy dyin’.
