“Memo to oil apologists: When VHS supplanted Betamax, nobody shed a tear. When word processing software replaced typewriters, nobody shrieked about a socialist revolution in the steno pool. And when the jet engine replaced the propeller, there were no protests on the Mall in Washington about a vast supersonic conspiracy. Face it: Technology changes. And the petroleum-based economy is dead. It’s built on antiquated technology that’s killing us and our planet. Oil has served its purpose. It was great while it lasted, and it got us to a point where we have the industrial and technological wherewithal to chart a new course. But we’re no longer primitives who need animal fat to light our evening meditations, or chase away evil spirits.”
