I'm not even sure the oil companies are against the belief in global warming.

1200 arrests outside the White House in late August over people protesting Keystone XL pipeline. Didn't see that one on the news.

Of course not.

The propaganda will only tell you what you're supposed to think about.

Temperature time-lines that only extend back a hundred years for example.

They don't care what anyone believes so long as they get their money.

If people believe in Global Warming then they'll have a full-scale manbearpig campaign.

So long as people continue to drive their cars and buy disposable grocery bags.

I don't see how I had anything to do with it.

I don't have the money to buy politicians.

You don't either. We're in the same boat.

I do not like the petroeum system any more than you.

I do not have a car. I do not purchase things unless I have to.

I'm hoping to start a local farm soon. Then I won't have to rely on the petrol-using grocery stores.

Your lifestyle is identical to mine.

Incidentally;

What kind of a car do you drive?

You and I live identical lives in terms of resource consumption.

I do not like the petrol industry. Neither do you.

We're in the same boat. No one is winning here.

You use petrol and I use petrol.

Neither of us like it.

We win when we find ways to skirt around the petrol industry.

In no way.

You do, in fact, use petroleum. So do I.

With a few changes this doesn't need to be the case.

. . .

P.S. Too bad there's no context anymore.

I always think of the big scary ball of fire as being very stable.

I guess higher-ups don't hold the same opinion.

I'm sixteen again and staying up all night to hear about solar flares, pole shifts and critters in space.

If any of this is true it's distressing.

For now I'm looking at it as a convincingly realistic story.

But no, really, that thing about solar ejecta, magnetic flips and moving crusts doesn't sound nice. I hope that's all fiction.
