The Romance of Oil
Of course this book seems to be written with the cooperation of the oil industry, particularly Standard Oil. There are lots of pictures of impressive refineries and pumps. Nothing written about environmental issues. Oil is good. Pipelines are good. Drilling everywhere and anywhere is good. Oil=Freedom.
I wonder if Mr. Floherty would still think this is romantic after the Exxon Valdez disaster or BP’s Gulf oil spill?
