    It’d be nice if people would stop creating confusion about what actually went into the creation of fossil fuels.

  4. From a scene that unfortunately wound up “on the cutting room floor”…

    “Daddy, everything from dinosaurs, to forests to algae was largely wiped out with the onset of a super greenhouse due to carbon emissions by supervolcanoes that put vast quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. When you pump oil, you are bringing back up much of the same carbon which until now had been geologically sequestered since then so that we can be burn it, putting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. But we are putting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere at roughly five times the rate the supervolcanoes were able to, both during the extinction of the dinosaurs and likely the Permian-Triassic Extinction, also known as The Great Dying because it wiped out nearly all non-bacterial life! Daddy, do you think what you are doing is something you really ought to?”

    I used to work in the oil industry, safety & avoidance of accidents was the top driving work ethic. Dangers were clearly known. Safety was top of all working concerns. The North Sea Piper Alpha oil platform incident was analyzed, and lessons learned, films were made for health & safety lectures and for the public, it was a very dramatic event. As was Deep-water Horizon. I hope the film shouts out the failure cause, the root cause that led to this tragic incident in the Gulf of Mexico. But no longer is it a case for safety professionals to showcase and bring in new procedures to prevent a repeat. That time has long passed by last century. Fossils must remain in the ground. Time to move on. Many professionals already have. Oil – Get over it. Exxon and the rest need to get the message and realize the urgency, they need to be responsible. They should not need to be told by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to include a climate change resolution on its annual shareholder proxy, there must be decent boundaries in the way we stay affluent.

    “US regulators have told ExxonMobil and Chevron to permit shareholders to vote on resolutions requiring assessments of how climate change policies might affect them, according to documents released Thursday.
    The two oil giants had sought to persuade regulators to allow them to drop the resolutions, which are backed by environmentalists and employee retirement programs in California and New York.
    The resolutions demand an “annual assessment of long term portfolio impacts of public climate change policies,” including estimating the value of the companies’ assets under global climate policies that could depress demand for oil and gas.”
