Money is being made by the petroleum industry. OK, no, duh, it's a fact. Making money is not the bad. But being hooked on a particular strategy about bucks is. So some men have gotten way too rich, judging on the fact that they viciously insist that it continue the same, pumping oil out of the ground and cash into pockets, ignoring the social and environmental consequences.
I want you to grasp this picture: we buy gasoline. At gas stations, mostly, starting the cash flow "upward" ending up in a small number of accounts.
This puts real power in the hands of a few men, too much power for people who make decisions based on profits and not on moral principles.
So I advocate for distributed energy, in particular roof-top solar, charging our electric cars.
The oil industry must fight this, as it is the end of the cash flow thy are addicted to. They will not fight "fairly".
