Why the world needs oil
Our beautiful planet works like a timeless machine. All the gears and pulleys are well-oiled to keep us circling around the sunny sun almost forever. But, as for a car engine, when the oil dries up the gears will seize.
When too much oil is taken out of the earth the tectonic plates start grinding each other and cause earthquakes – which lead to tsunamis and other extreme conditions – and volcanoes to erupt. Eventually the whole system can seize and explode.
And that will be the end of football and beer and Christmas. Which is why the world needs oil to stay in the ground.
Just a thought :)
