Speak for yourself; I'm in it for great gobs of cash, pure and simple. That and the flowers thrown at the feet by passers-by. And the babes of course.

Am I alone?

Yes. Esp. wrt the babes....

Sorry, the fame, cash and babes go the evolutionists.

Dave Benson asks, "What about oil geologists?"

Well, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists amended its position statement from oposition to the consensus climate science to neutrality in 2007. I think that indicates some integrity.
