    Some one is way behind the times. Some years back, Russian & Ukrainian scientists found that oil is not from fossils & is renewed deep in the earth.

    I am not against finding new ways to build stuff. Adobe blocks with a touch of cement works very well as does compacted soil bricks, also with a touch of cement.

    I see the man made global warming scare as another frontal excuse for more control over the people & an even bigger govt. Govt is almost always the problem & very seldom the answer.
