Oil and Wealth

I just finished watching this program on PBS in MN:

Extreme Oil
13 KTCI: Monday, June 25 7:00 PM
Public affairs

The Wilderness
Lobbyists debate the extraction of oil in Alaska; extraction site in Canada.

We have lived on this planet for thousands of years before oil. We CAN live without it. Won't get RICH, but you can LIVE if there is food.

Thinking about the Inuit, what is rich to them? A good hunt and happy people is being rich. We just have to redefine wealth and richness to mean a whole lot more than just money.
