Greening of Oil - Latest from Mac Ackers
BILL STREEVER IN SPOTLIGHT … A statistician may not be moved, but I was pleased to see people respond positively to our Bill Streever story. No backlash regarding ecologist Streever as a “sellout,” or worse, just real people with not-so-typical jobs in the oil industry who also feel they’ve had a positive impact, such as Al Allen, an oil spill specialist, who has worked “within” the oil industry for 42 years. Al says, “We can have a much more profound effect working this way. …Bill has a great outlook and is doing such good things ‘from within.’” More responses came through on my networking pages, find me, add me.

WHAT A BUNCH OF … My job is now easier folks. An oil industry extremist was upset to get a recent press release from us: “What a bunch of crap. Aren’t you aware that global warming and all the hoopla over CO2, etc. has been thoroughly discredited and shown to be both a fraud and a hoax?” Luckily, Greening of Oil reports solely on the science behind energy industry practices! Dare I recommend she actually visit the site? Read the full comment.
DON’T YOU JUST LOVE IT? Greening of Oil has a new freelance writer, Liz Bestic, who lives in Woodbridge on the Suffolk coast. She will be writing many of our energy career pieces ($70,000-plus a year section). Liz is a wonderful writer and artist. Check out her Web site. UK readers forgive me, but I simply adore the names you give homes, hills, farms and the like. Here are a few from Liz’s address and biography: Kyson Hill, Brrom Heath, Cuckoo Farm Workshops, Peter Pears Gallery, Ipswich … You get the picture. Why couldn’t Americans have been more creative in naming the New World? Liz trained at West Surrey College of Art and Design and Exeter College of Art in the mid seventies before switching careers to become a journalist for the Sunday Times. It’s rare to find exceptional writing, painting and printmaking talents in one individual. Welcome aboard, Liz.
