We can make things out of hemp like the Founding Fathers used to.

It also means no plastics. Chop down all the forests and make everything out of wood I suppose?

Most environmentalist want no MORE oil, not NO oil period. There has to be transition period of where we ween ourselves from Fossil Fuels. Driving cars that use oil based energy is not a problem as long as the fuel is NOT a fossil fuel. Bio based oil products have no net CO2 effect to the extent that fossil fuels are not used in the manufacturing process. The goal is not zero consumption. The goal is to ramp down our consumption to a sustainable level.

We CAN'T continue using fossil fuel if the human race is to survive. GOP-science isn't a dirty word!

I have no objection to environmentalist wanting no oil, but that means no cars, or oil based drugs.

"They will pay to transfer liability to others." It's called a business expense. Just like a deduction on your tax return.

If every time something negative happen the activity was forbidden. All of the population would have to stand in place and not move. How come cars are not banned with all of the pollution and death that occurs because of them. Vehicles cause more deaths than guns do. To stop oil production is quite ridiculous. It would only cause more dependence on democrats!

US policy... Keep people ignorant... Protect corporate profiteering.

Very first paragraph is incorrect. Exxon is going to pay for everything.

This was a false flag by environmental socialists. Nothing to see here.

Oh no only God Fearing people want to have toxins in their water, so they can get to heaven faster.
