YesThe long term plan is to leave the oil in the ground.
To reduce the environmental impact.Why spend billions on a dying industry ?
So you're proposal is to keep polluting in your lifetime, rather than cutting emissions now?In my lifetime not much will change. In my son's lifetime fossil fuels will be greatly reduced and replaced by green energy.
In my grandson's lifetime fossil fuels will be relegated to the past.
At least we should hope so, otherwise our grandkids don't have a future.
That seems kind of selfish.
