It's a pretty exciting and thought-provoking way to get people's attention. Having never attended any of these presentations I can't vouch for the merits of their arguments. They may well be right but I have one niggling doubt over the validity of such a comparison. In all my time on this earth, I have never, ever, heard anyone complain about having too much oil.
