S1E2: A Message from The Oil Company

Hi, I’m the head of a big international oil company. I stand here today to address everyone of you who doubts in me. We know that you know that we do some business to which you disagree. This is a message to show how I deal with this personally.

I’m gonna die. In an evolutionary perspective I have practically already said goodbye. Die – and be lowered in the ground at my family cemetery. Soon my body will rot in the soil, and become soil itself. However, nutritious soil full of calcium and proteins, phosphorous and chlorine. When the ground is this healthy, the passing of ten generations will turn the cemetery into a jungle. And after ten geological eras, this jungle will actually become a fossil.

Give me time (remember we are talking about time in a fairly long perspective)! Time so I can be found in the ground as fresh and nice fossil energy. I’m lying there, ready to get pumped up and shipped to a refinery, in which I become gasoline that will be filled on the tank of a car by my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grand child.

Oh, isn’t that beautiful – how I’m renewable!

Resume: Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, soil to soil. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, Man to Oil! I am the head of a big international oil company. I stood here today to address everybody who has doubted in me. Goodbye.
