Kudos to kudos letter

I grew up in an “oil patch” and have worked in the oil and gas industry for 35+ years. I’ve witnessed the remarkable innovations in safety and technology the industry has made during that time. People always say “you [as an industry] don’t do a very good job of telling your story.” Regrettably, we can’t even SELL our story to the mainstream media. Or as I have said for years, apparently to the mainstream media, “good news is no news.” There’s no balance to the ever-growing (ever-changing) fear-mongering of so-called “environmentalists.” The industry has successfully met every demand they have made, and yet they continue to demand more. (And drive to the meetings in their gas-guzzling SUVs, wearing their Patagonia jackets, vinyl hiking boots and nylon backpacks – all made from oil). What a gang of hypocrites. Thank you for helping to get the word out, Robert. I plan to forward your article to a number of people – in the industry and outside – that I know will be encouraged by it.
