Crude oil is a fossil fuel and was made naturally from decaying plants and animals, like this prehistoric dunkleosteus, living in ancient seas millions of years ago.

Guns: The Cartoon

A rare cartoon that does not cover an environmental topic. However, my concern with gun control and safety runs parallel with my environmental concerns.
