You’re ingesting Petrolify® with nearly every breath and every footstep you take. Most of us don’t realize that Petrolify® is being pumped into our water and injected into our food. But we reap its magical benefits regardless.
Did you sleep indoors last night? You can thank Petrolify®. Did you eat breakfast today? Again, that was thanks to Petrolify®. Are you reading this message on your mobile phone or computer? The miracle of Petrolify® never ends!
Except that miracle comes with some deadly side effects, and an expiration date.
That is why the Post Carbon Institute has created the below parody commercial, to remind as many people as possible that the dream we’re living—a dream fueled by a one-time, finite fossil fuel bonanza—is far darker than they might suspect.
We Play A Role Too
When we open our eyes to the hidden costs of Petrolify®, it’s easy to blame the ‘corporate bad guys’—the manufacturers, the drug reps, the doctors—who are pushing their product on an unwilling populace. But we’re not quite so unwilling, are we? No, we want what they’re selling. And, there is no “they”. They are us.
Thankfully, our well-being doesn’t have to depend on Petrolify®. We can choose for our energy needs to be met with renewable, and more ecological and socially just sources. More important, we can learn to live well with less. Conservation doesn’t have to be the “c” word.
The first step is recognizing our pill-popping addiction for what it is.
Please help spread the word that Petrolify® may not be right for us.
