Let’s have petrol of our own.


African children queue for food
Exploration drilling for oil offshore in the Great Australian Bight has been opposed by activists. Australia imports 80% of its crude oil from SE Asia (49%), Africa (24%), Middle East (17%) and others (10%). Import of oil from developing countries depletes their resources and can destabilise government and development. The fiction novel $hort of Love by Martin Knox illustrates horrific ethical dilemmas of importing oil from a developing country suffering famine. After you read this story, you are likely to reduce your petrol consumption or alternatively want drilling in The Bight.
