Exxon’s Plan for Surging Carbon Emissions Revealed in Leaked Documents

I felt a sudden, cathartic desire to listen to "Cunts are still running the world."

With all this talk about carbon footprints, there has been a lot of progress with becoming free of fossil fuels. Sweden has a goal of becoming free of fossil fuels by 2050, which is a pretty big undertaking by itself.

Iceland on the other hand has nearly 100% of its power coming from renewable energy. With over 3/4th's of its power coming from hydroelectric plants and the rest being provided by geothermal.

Becoming less dependent on oil and natural gas is a worthy goal and the United States is falling behind other countries in this aspect.

All of which doesn't address the issue.

It addresses the humorous tagline, but that's not really the same thing.

Oil is a valuable commodity, it shouldn’t be used for energy on a large scale, it should be used for production of goods.
Nuclear can solve the issue until we get decent solar/wind/hydro.
We can make better nuclear too.
