I started into that Big Oil thing. I forgive you for tricking me into downloading it . It seems watchable. It's an attack job, and any other posture would be pretty bad.

The problem is: If one party started to make America green again, the other party would sweep to power on a platform of undoing their reforms.

Yeah yeah.

Thankfully not only politics, but even big corporations are waking up to climate change now.
Very late, but the elephant is so big now that it starts to impact their profits.

I started into teckk's Big Oil series yesterday.


It's PBS and the subject wasn't fascinating enough to live with the 'baby crawling' pace at which those programs travel. But it did get accross how the big oil companies effectively sowed doubt to delay action by some decades - enough for ruining the place.

Just like the tobacco companies managed another 40 - 50 years by sowing doubt, oil has done the same. And Biden can't even get a coal ban through, because one of his senators in the coal companies' pockets.
