Talking about “dirty” energy and “clean” energy already sets up a pretty clear dichotomy: dirty = bad; clean = good. (Not to say dirty energy doesn’ t have its champions. Drill, baby, drill! wasn’t that long ago after all—and the sentiment certainly hasn’t disappeared.)
Recently, somebody took the dirty / clean thing one step further, framing it as a question of good and evil. The idea: dirty fuel comes from below—or hell—and the clean stuff comes from above.
Can you guess WHO SAID THIS?
“Right now, we have a marketplace that is rigged to reward the most filthiest producers, the expensive, ‘poisoniest’ and destructive fuels from hell, rather than the clean green cheap fuels from heaven.”
