To answer this seriously. . .
What motivates oilmen? money.
What motivates environmentalists? protecting nature.
One motivation is far easier to ridicule than the other.

Know any oilmen or discussed their motives with them? Many of the ones I have met want to do things with the money after they make it, supporting various causes just like environmentalists support their causes.
