  1. Like all addictions, hydrocarbon addiction extracts a heavy price for the “fix” it gives.  I think these rural disasters are as good a reason as any to push hard for alternatives to drilling for and refining crude oil.  Farmers themselves might give serious consideration to running their equipment on biofuels.  The less demand for crude there is, the less probability they will wake up one day to find a grandiose mess on their farmland.  Plus, farmland can help provide renewable energy instead of just creating demand for the products of crude oil refinement.
