What a weird scene that not even a psychopath could have organized this way. Oil & gas executives sit in a hall in late September kissing up to those who want to destroy their industries while outside winter shows that it has no intention of going away. Quite the contrary. We are at the cusp of a solar minimum and this one is going to last us 30 years. Which means a new cold period is on our doorstep. We can feel the effects already while those executives play breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a monster they refuse to confront head-on. Who needs those executives?
There definitely is a lower-carbon model in the oil and gas industry’s future, agreed executive participants in the opening session of SPE’s 2019 Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition.
