The plant material that converted to the bio-fuel that is harming Earth required hundreds of millions of years of growing, dying, falling and pressure to complete the process. Had those materials been uncovered and decayed by the time-based actions of nature, it would have certainly taken, once again, many, many millions of years for the process to complete. Yet we extract and consumed those millions of years worth of climate harming materials in just a little over 100 years (so far.)

Industry compressed a natural process involving uncounted eons into, essentially, the lifetime of a human being. How anyone can fail to see this as fact, and basis for a logically fearful response, beyond baffles me.
