oil and guess
So do you actually get onto the bandwagon and enter the oil and gas industry knowing that you can earn big bucks, or do you go into the opposing industry and look into alternative energy?
I know I can be extremely naively noble, but I don't like the offshore oil and gas industry. It is like, you are learning how to dig more oil from Mother Earth. Unless you tell me something like, oh I am learning how to dig oil more efficiently so that there is less wastage or something, but still you are exploiting our Earth's natural resources. Sounds like killing someone with less pain.
No doubt you can have double digit bonuses each year, but it is still something that I find it hard to convince myself to accept. (true, I don't have to accept it) True, the very electricity that powers my computer that enables me to blog is a result of burning fossil fuel, but that's because our power grid doesn't use renewable resources. My fault. Hey at least my calculator has solar cell.
Engineers and engineers-wannabe should ask ourselves: is money all that we are after?
