Hi all, this is my first post so please bear with me here.
I wanted to bring the real reason we are dependant on Oil. Most people have the oppinion that fuel is all that oil is about. This is not the
Plastics!!!! The real profit from oil is little plastic pellets. Now think about this a second......
Just use your home as an example. What is made of plastics in your home alone.
Your Kitchen appliances and utensils
And what about the function of your home. The wiring in your home...The plumbing.
Well the list is pretty big here.
Now think about your food, how much of it is packaged in plastics?
Needless to say that if you truely wanted to get away from dependancy on oil you would have to live in a log cabin with an outhouse.
There is more here to go such as your car. What about hospitals?
I just wanted to pass this along to those that think that oil is just used for fuel. Fuel actually has a lower profit than the plastic made from
I hope people will think about all the implications here
The real dependancy on oil is the QUICK, EASY PROFIT
We've had solutions for years to solve the fuel 'crisis', BUT, there's SO much more easy money to be extracted quickly from the earth that the
banksters won't stop until they've squeezed out every drop of profit.
Only then will the next generation of energy sources become available.
You've got a good point, we do have to remember though that you only have to go back 50-100 years and more or less nothing was made of plastic and
people certainly didn't live in log cabins.
I'm not even sure why we use the damn stuff so much, especially for packaging it seems unbelievably wasteful to wrap everything we buy in 3 or 4
layers of plastic and then put it in a plastic bag and drive home in an ostensibly plastic car
Yes it is all about profit of course. All buisiness is. What I wanted to show here is just how much humanity is dependent on oil. Like I
said...Think about he implications of the fact that everything in our lives has oil use of some sort. PLASTIC, the real dependency.
Even cloths, paint, ect.....
