Is it a go for drilling for oil and gas on Mars?
Making heroes out of the oil industry.
Drilling for methane or natural gas in the fault zones of Mars, would not only release methane, ethane, propane, butane and pentane, but more carbon dioxide and water water vapor. Just remember that when the drilling starts to pick the high sulfide, hydrogen sulfide fault zones and hot active fault zones. This would shortcut all the silly ideas of dragging minerals, water and gases from other worlds and asteroids, when everything is already there.
It might even give the oil industry a place where they could be heroes again. What do you say oil industry? Is it a go for drilling on Mars? Go for drilling for oil and gas on Mars. You have the funds to build the rockets  and create an advanced new world base for oil drilling. We all know that oil, gas and coal are inorganic and are simply made by the reduction of graphite or carbon by adding smaller or greater quantities of hydrogen. More hydrogen to graphite for natural gas, less to oil and even less to coal and of course none to graphite.
Do we have a go? New worlds need to be explored and new bases established.
Release methane into the atmosphere of Mars and let global warming commence! Drill baby drill!
