This is kind of like saying "we can power turbines by harnessing the power of boulders rolling down mountains." Certainly true, but it neglects to take into account the energy required to get the boulders up the mountain in the first place. In the case of oil the sun and the dinosaurs* already did the work for us.



*technically not true, but oil=old dinosaurs is a popular idea
