10 Mar Overcoming Energy Industry Misconceptions
The mischaracterization we face in the petroleum industry has become a frustrating reality that is not likely to go away anytime soon. In many cases, our schools are teaching an abridged negative view of our industry that is purposefully creating a huge misconception for the generations to come. No industry is perfect, but overall our industry is extremely responsible and has taken huge strides in decreasing negative environmental impacts. These advances and the continued focus on improvement should be a source of pride rather than shame.
Aside from education, we should challenge the people and companies blindly taking anti-oil and gas stances to put their money where their mouth is. Let them be the first to stop driving, flying, and using all products derived from petroleum.
