Okay. Leave the oil and gas in the ground. A lot of good it will do the 
people of East Timor in the ground.

Is it some religious belief that causes you to think an oil company 
should go risk its wealth to explore for oil without trying to make  the 
maximum profit?

Feel free to start an oil drilling operation that doesn't seek profit, 
if you like. There's no grounds for expecting the shareholders of 
existing profit-seeking coporations to do the same. We don't all have 
your religious fervor for charity work.
