All things considering, I thought that this would be a good topic for my first article since it exemplifies the need for an education reform (I'm making a bit of a joke here):
So apparently there is another petition making its way around to "boycott" selected oil companies. The link is here: http://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=152319464828818&id=151363471591084¬if_t=feed_comment#!/event.php?eid=151363471591084
After reading the article in the link, I'm certain it wouldn't work...here's why:
"If they [Exxon, Mobil] reduce their prices, the other companies will follow suit."
My Rebuttal: hahaha yeah right! Do you even understand how global economics works? This will just turn the new companies into conglomerates. The only way oil prices can be reduced is by controlling the price of CRUDE OIL...not boycotting two companies.
"If you don't understand how we can reach 300 Million people...well let's just face it, you just aren't mathematician."
My Rebuttal: Actually, I am an Applied Mathematician. There are a grand total of only 311,000,000 US citizens according to the 2010 census. 24.3% of the US population is made up of children. YOU do the math.
Moral of the story: If you don't want to have to worry about gas prices, either purchase your own drilling company or buy an electric car.
