Do you think a graph about renewables and petroleum future wich comes from British Petroleum is any reliable?Greg Locock wrote: ↑Sun Oct 04, 2020 10:50 pmRenewables aren't even keeping up with the growth in energy demand never mind 'taking over'. perhaps by 2050 fossil fuel use will start to drop

Sadly petroleum companies are probably the main responsible of current situation. I´m not talking about their product wich we all use, I´m talking about patents wich never saw the light, biased reports stating climate change does not exist to delay society reaction as much as possible, influence in governments to not take some decisions wich are obvious decades ago, etc.
Business is legit, manipulating governments and the entire society for their own benefit is not, and that´s what these companies are doing for around 4 decades or even more
Edit: when I say petroleum companies I mean energy companies, as depending on the country they may be petroleum companies, or electrical companies. Here in Spain for example it´s electrical companies who manipulate the most as there´s no significant amounts of petroleum here. Coincidentally most former presidents of Spain are all advisors of different electrical companies with huge salaries while legislation has been the biggest problem for renewables to take off for decades. A casual coincidence? Spain is just an example, it is the same all around the world.
