    Considering the fact that the vast majority of the new vehicles produced between now and 2020 will be for usage in the 3rd world and be driven by 2-cycle or diesel engines, I seriously doubt that the environment is going to benefit from their numbers. What about oxygen use? Are we, as a race, adding to the acres of rain forests? Is China and India magically not polluting the oceans with their new manufacturing basis? If the oceans go stagnate what will produce the air we need to breath? Do we really have no effect on the planet's environment, as the PhD. Rush Limbaugh would have us believe?

    Thats an interesting question.If magma comes in contact with an underground pool of oil it would explode and depending on the depth,create a huge undergorund dome that would fill with more magma.

    It might be possible: Sumatra

    The longest axis of the island runs approximately 1,790 km (1,100 miles) northwest - southeast, crossing the equator near the center. At its widest point the island spans 435 km (270 miles). The interior of the island is dominated by two geographical regions: the Barisan Mountains in the west and swampy plains in the east.

    To the southeast is Java, separated by the Sunda Strait. To the north is the Malay Peninsula, separated by the Straits of Malacca. To the east is Borneo, across the Karimata Strait. West of the island is the Indian Ocean.

    The backbone of the island is the Barisan mountains chain, with the active volcano Mount Kerinci's 3,805 m (12,467 ft) the highest point, located at about the midpoint of the range. The volcanic activity of this region endowed the region with fertile land and beautiful sceneries, for instance around the Lake Toba. It also contains deposits of coal and gold.

    To the east, big rivers carry silt from the mountain, forming the vast lowland interspersed by swamps. Even if mostly unsuitable for farming, the area is currently of great economic importance for Indonesia. It produces oil from both above and below the soil—palm oil and petroleum.

    Most of Sumatra used to be covered by tropical rainforest, but economic development coupled with corruption and illegal logging has severely threatened its existence. Conservation areas have not been spared from destruction, either.

    The island is the world's 5th highest island, although only the third highest in the Indonesian archipelago.
