Big Oil and the Far Right

Written by Ronald Wright

I honestly don't know what the activist "dinosaurs" --the hard men of Big Oil and the far right--think they are doing.  They have children and grandchildren who will need safe food and clean air and water, and who may wish to see living oceans and forests.  Wealth can buy no refuge from pollution; pesticides sprayed in China condense in Antarctic glaciers and Rocy Mountain tarns.  And wealth is no shield from from chaos, as the surprise on each haughty face that rolled from the guillotine made clear.
