Wow...apparently even the occasional petroleum executive is able to link demand for gasoline to its consumption, "A petroleum executive suggested Thursday that Gov. Sonny Perdue should cancel Saturday's football game between Georgia and Alabama."
Sort of reminds me of a conversation I had once about the LifeLight Festival. The question was - how can we make it green? The correct answer is cancel it - because no amount of effort will erase the carbon footprint of all those people driving that far. There are some compromise answers too but that's for another day.
The destruction of the economy used to always come up in conversations about global warming and cutting carbon. That's starting to seem quaint.
