How many scientific accomplishments have been made world wide due to petroleum?

Do you think we would have as many with wind or solar?

    ….and all the while the oil production capacity in Brazil (via George Soros, funder of Obama) grows on a massive scale…hmmmmm…..

    Probably not with wind. I’d place more bets on solar power but not just yet. It’s not good enough to sustain our energy economy. Nuclear should be the next primary power.

    We could all own horses and the horse shyt would be two feet deep in the streets. Everything that makes my life comfortable comes from big business and is delivered using petroleum.

    Oil gave us plastics, synthetic fabrics, lubricants and all the products that use them.
    Wind and solar have very limited use, and could not function without oil.
