question - silk worm deaths vs. oil industry

Is it better for silk worms to be boiled alive so that silk fabric can be made (possibly by child labor), or for synthetic fabric to be made from petroleum?

Depends on how much method of death of insects matters to you, I suppose. It's not like dying from pesticides (as with cotton) or habitat loss (as with lots of petroleum products) is a nice way to go.
