This is reminds me of a slick Las Vegas magician, who keeps talking and telling stories to distract you from what he is doing with his hands. Next thing you know, he has pulled a rabbit out of a hat. We’ve all been fooled again and we seem to love it. And what story is this magician telling us while slipping this particular rabbit into the hat? He is telling us that this new fossil energy boom will create prosperity and jobs.

Meanwhile, the owners of these companies will probably get rich enough to fly to another planet.
