10. Building a giant death ray that randomly kills people would create jobs

Building prisons to house everyone whose name begins with the letters g through r would create jobs.

14. You have a point?

 

Expanding our energy infrastructure adds value; you're examples do not.

16. People make money off renewables too

 

Profit is a motive in virtually every part of the energy business and I don't have a problem with it.

5. OIL is everywhere.

Even in the plastic keyboard keys we type on...

No need to expand the list.

13. No problem

however I would like a written guarantee of the number of jobs, pay and how much less gas will cost me. You see, I've been burned before.

20. And if it doesn't?

What will ExxonMobil do to make good on its promise? Or are the jobs they're promising really going to be hazardous clean-up crew jobs when they cheap out again on the pipeline construction like they did in Alaska? Something tells me that the incredible mess the oil companies have made of the North Shore will get a little more attention when they do the exact same thing in Nebraska.
