Leave the oil in the soil? Have you people ever seriously considered what that would imply in total for people's lives now?

I think many of Patrick's efforts are admirable, but I personally would not want to be associated with this particular metaphor. I don't think anybody denies these days that ecological problems are real. It's a commonplace. But when we ask such questions as how we are going to tackle them, and what sort of people will support that, we straightaway confront the politics of social classes - and they think or act in ways which seem reasonable from the standpoint of their own position in the world.
