Viva Vivoleum

Sez "Shepard Wolff:"

"We've got to get ready. After all, fossil fuel development like that of my company [Exxon] is increasing the chances of catastrophic climate change, which could lead to massive calamities, causing migration and conflicts that would likely disable the pipelines and oil wells. Without oil we could no longer produce or transport food, and most of humanity would starve. That would be a tragedy, but at least all those bodies could be turned into fuel for the rest of us."

"We're not talking about killing anyone," added the "NPC rep." "We're talking about using them after nature has done the hard work. After all, 150,000 people already die from climate-change related effects every year. That's only going to go up - maybe way, way up. Will it all go to waste? That would be cruel."
And, as Exxon's Kenneth Cohen points out, with respect to Exxon's concerns about climate change, "We're very much not a denier, very much at the table with our sleeves rolled up."
