A Visual Attack on Industry
No industry on the planet is more vilified or misunderstood than Oil & Gas. Bad operators and accidents like Macondo certainly don’t help in communicating the many ways in which Industry serves mankind.
Below is a sampling of the literally hundreds of infographics that circulate (and go viral) online.
Many are skewed factually or draw upon incongruous data points to ‘educate’ the viewer along a certain line of thinking: mainly that Industry is bad and here’s the visual ‘proof’ of it.
The problem is that busy citizens (who are not geoscientists and don’t work in industry) will do their ‘research’ with such tools. Unverified issues become fact and a bias soon forms in the mind. Subsequent appeals to intellectual honesty – hit the brick walls of fear & misinformation.
Their minds are already made up. The infographic did its job.
