Oil industry menace

The facts reported in The Tribune that this country is flipping from an oil importer to an oil exporter and that fracking technology is generating a vast growth in natural gas production should be cause for grief, not celebration.

Despite the devastation caused by Sandy, which seemed for a brief moment to open eyes to the menace of climate change, the fossil fuel industry is using its obscene profits to blind people to its crimes against the biosphere and future generations.

When will we wake up to realize that this industry itself is our greatest enemy?
