Exxon proposes to use human deceased for fuel!

without comments

Vivoleum by Exxon

The keynote speech by Exxon and National Petroleum Council (NPC) executives at GO-EXPO, Canada’s largest oil conference, introduced Vivoleum, a macabre ploy to use human dead to produce fuel.

NPC representative stated: “We’re not talking about killing anyone.  We’re talking about using them after nature has done the hard work. After all, 150,000 people already die from climate-change related effects every year. That’s only going to go up – maybe way, way up. Will it all go to waste? That would be cruel.”

The keynote focused on profiteering on the human cost due to Alberta tar sands and the use of liquid coal as forms of energy.
