right-wing oil fantasies

Peter Dizikes writes about a number of right-wing myths about oil in today’s Salon.com.

Unbelievably enough, there are people who believe:
# There’s more oil in Alaska than in the Middle East
# The Chinese are about to start drilling — or are already drilling — off the coast of Florida (the Cuba/China menace — Russia/Cuba 2.0 — new and improved!)

and — wait for it —

# Oil is not a “fossil fuel” but a nearly infinite non-organic resource like, I guess, rocks.
