exxon-mobil to the rescue.

i am declaring infavour of record oil company profits.

what ?! follow this -

restricted refining capacity -
(a) raises the price of gasoline and refined products.

(b) thus encouraging conservation by the customer, and
possibly even lowering the rate of exhaustion of finite fossil

(c) also making alternative energy closer to economic viability,
and thus making more research into alternatives worthwhile.

(d) while the increased flow of money spent on oil, and
oil products, is recycled, and is not lost to the global

(e) finally, some of these enhanced oil refiners' profits
are at last being channelled into raising awareness
of the finite nature of fossil fuels. (and incidentally, thus
making the consumer more tolerant of high prices.)

sounds like a win-win-win to me.
