Protests coming to Shell/Tesoro Puget Sound Refineries

A large number of protestors will descend on our refineries to protest the use of hydrocarbons and to demand an immediate move to renewables. Ironic being as they're driving here (most autos use hydrocarbons as fuel, ALL autos use hydrocarbons in manufacturing). Ironic as well that their clothes, food, plastic kayaks, basically everything they touch/use in life comes courtesy of hydrocarbons. The world continues to transition to cleaner fuel sources, these types of protests are not conducive to an orderly transition. Assuming none of the protesters lives like "Little House on the Prairie", it seems they are somewhat two-faced. You can read the official USW press release here.
