I ruled out taking the wishes of Big Oil into account ~ I said, "No sense ...". Taking the wishes of an industry physically doomed to collapse into account when deciding whether or not the economy should be sustainable would not be sensible behavior.

Its like taking long term investment advice from someone who's doctor said they have three months to live.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
