I’ve posted about how Drake drilled the first well and saved the whales.

This picture is the result of John D Rockefeller’s efforts to make lighting as cheap as possible by using as much of the various fractions of oild as a product as possible.  Much of what we have as chemistry is the result.

One thought on “All The Stuff That Comes From Oil”

  1. Sometimes these articles present a false choice – which is a political tactic. The choice isn’t the gluttonous use of oil or no oil at all, which the graphic implies. The real choice is harder. How do we reduce our oil consumption? Recycling, alternative and renewable resources, etc. Of course, no one wants to get rid of medicine. Thanks for the thought-provoking post 🙂
