Exxon to USA: Stop Trying, Resistance is Futile

Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention please. Thank you. I present you Mr. Stuart McGill, Senior Vice President of Exxon Mobil, the world's largest publicly traded oil company: "'Realistically, it is simply not feasible in any time period relevant to our discussion today,' Exxon Mobil Senior Vice President Stuart McGill said, referring to what he called the 'misperception' that the United States can achieve energy independence. [...] 'Americans depend upon [oil] imports to fill the gap,' McGill said. 'No combination of conservation measures, alternative energy sources and technological advances could realistically and economically provide a way to completely replace those imports in the short or medium term. [...] end[ing] foreign oil imports is not only a bad idea, but also impossible.' You got that people? Just give up and make Exxon happy. ::Exxon: America will always rely on foreign oil, via ::MetaFilter, ::Boycott Exxon!, ::Aide Who Debased Reports Finds Job at Exxon, ::Exxon on Global Warming
