makes you wonder

Was over at Sally’s where she is talking about global warming and all the debates going on about it, (let’s not mention the David Bellamy debate) and it made me wonder about something.

We all know that oil is a finite resource. We all know that it isn’t exactly doing the environment any favours, yet we don’t seem all that bothered (link possibly biased *g*) about it.
