Rock oil has been used as medicine for countless thousands of years. Petroleum jelly was found to be a healing salve by oil workers who noticed cuts
and burns healed faster when they'd been working on the parts of the pipework where petroleum jelly collected.
A wise old lady pointed out to me it's incredible what a car can do running on only a small amount of fluid.
I'm not against oil or oil industry.
I am against the greedy, lying way the oil industry is run.
When the need for a massive concrete oil platform was recognised, a building site was chosen on the west coast of Scotland. The chosen site was close
to where the posh people have their yachts. Obviously they objected and a public enquiry was launched. The application was rejected and the people of
Kishorn were approached with the story that 'they only wanted a little site, everything would come by sea (no impact on the fragile local road
system), and the workers would live on site. There would be no negative impacts on the local community, just jobs for locals'. I don't believe they
ever wanted the first site. It was just a scam to catch out the people of Kishorn.
It was all lies. The site expanded as it pleased, the roads suffered from the traffic, all the local bridges were damaged by trucks, workers needed
accommodation everywhere, workers families came in and picked all the big winkles, damaging one of the only ways of earning a living.
Then the rig cracked during construction. Also the grout was found not to have penetrated the cavities holding the reinforcing cables. It was a dud
and should have been scrapped. They concealed the cracks and put it into place.
I wouldn't like to be on it in high winds and big waves.
