Oil Addiction

Have you ever tried to talk someone out of an addiction that was destroying their life? They might have been an alcoholic, a drug addict, a gambler or a child molester. All they see is the pleasure of their addiction. They deny the negative consequences. How much worse are carbon addicts, people who are so entranced by the profits from selling fossil fuels they will destroy ecosystems, poison their own children and, through greenhouse gas emissions, destroy the entire planet, not just themselves.
