Who Needs A Livable Climate? I’ve Got A Job!! (Shell Video)

   

Originally published on Planetsave.

A facilities engineer for Shell is featured in the video below in order to inform us of how swell it is to work for Shell. You know, if you can just block out that whole “destroying the world” thing. Anything for a little money, eh? 



Truthfully, this video really stands out to me for how it demonstrates what gets people into this industry — It’s a job. Perhaps even a high-paying job. In an office. For a big company.

40 hours a week helping to bring down human civilization and countless species. What’s not to love?  

However, I’ll come back to the crux of the matter: as much as “evil” oil suppliers are to blame, demanders are many more times to blame. Oil companies and simple people like the lady in this video are supplying a demand. If we pull out the demand, there will be no such jobs. Instead, there will be jobs in much cleaner bike, electric car, and public transit industries.

If you are opposed to destroying society and/or countless species, stop driving gasmobiles and go solar!

Agelbert COMMENT:

... the so-called customers that feed the fossil fuel burning greedballs at the top have been continuously forced out of green alternatives by the fossil fuel 'bought- and-paid-fors' in government.

I have written extensively about how Big Oil has engineered (for about 100 years!) tax payer rip offs called "subsidies", fake oil shortages for profit and wars.

Throughout this period, Big Oil gamed the energy market and consumer choices starting with Prohibition (No, it was not about booze; it was about making ethanol illegal so Rockefeller could corner the fuel market!) and extending through the 1980s when solar and wind renewable energy were crushed in their infancy.

Hand in hand with all this corruption and propaganda that fossil fuels were "Cheaper"  , came the "new ice age" baloney.

It's a long, sordid story and they are still at it to this day.

FossilFuel Industry's SECRET MOTTO

Don't Believe the Dirty Lie

That's Alright, Isn't It----Everyone Is Doing It SO it must be OK?

How the Promise of Chemurgy Was Dashed By Big Oil


Robert F. Kennedy Jr: "In the next decade there will be an epic battle for survival for humanity against the forces of ignorance and greed. It’s going to be Armageddon, represented by the oil industry on one side, versus the renewable industry on the other. And people are going to have to choose sides – including politically. They will have to choose sides because oil and coal, they will not be able to survive – they are not going to be able to burn their proven reserves. If they do, then we are all dead. And they are quite willing to burn it. We’re all going to be part of that battle. We are going to watch governments being buffeted by the whims of money and greed on one side, and idealism and hope on the other."
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
