On May 26, 2011, the Financial Post published a summary of MLI Managing Director Brian Lee Crowley's Commentary, "Are We Running Out of Natural Resources?"

    I generally agree with your commentary about, not running out of resources. But I believe you are mistaken in referring to oil and gas as fossil fuels. I do not believe it is possible or plausible these resources were formed from the decay of plants and animals. I can't prove it, but there is no question that I am right. I believe these fuels have been and are formed thru natural chemical processes within the earth. Perhaps we are using it faster that it is being produced but it is being produced constantly.
