One of the main pro-oil arguments is that most things are already set up to use oil (or oil products) as fuel. Converting engines and other equipment for use with an alternative fuel can be costly and create a lot of waste. There is also some argument that certain alternative fuels are dangerous for the environment as well as oil. It has been argued that wind farms are harmful to birds and other animals. Certainly, nuclear power is harmful to the environment. While it is supposed to be greener and more economical than fuel, it can also be disatrous. The biggest pro-oil arguments are likely to be economical rather than environmental. We know oil and it's biproducts are not great for the environment. Gathering oil can also be bad for the environment. Oil transportation is a great environmental risk as well. However, oil has been a major economic factor in many countries as well as the global economy. It would certainly create changes and perhaps even instability in the global market if we deviated from vast oil use.
