    Yeah.

    Their leadership went along with a trend of virtue signaling by companies and making a long term pledge.

    But none of their senior leadership will be around to be judged on their performance in adhering to that plan, and 28 years from now I doubt they really expect to be held to their promises. They'll have collected their golden parachutes and retired to whichever vacation home is sunny and 75 on whatever time of year it happens to be.

    Let's not forget that first part about BP being a major producer of oil and gas.

    Maybe this actually is about their attempts to focus on renewable energy...time shall tell. Until such time, I will exercise my right to an extremely high dose of skepticism.

    I'm just saying, maybe someone should remember the name of which CEO made that promise and follow up with him or her 30 years from now.

    Heinlein devised the Shipstone ultra high capacity electrical storage device in 'Friday'. Mrs Shipstone told Mr Shipstone to not patent his invention, which would have required disclosure of its operation, but to keep it a trade secret, backed up by tamperproof construction, it would blow up if opened.
    The other smart thing was to plow profits into sunny real estate and solar collectors to keep Shipstones charged.

    Every publicly-traded energy company is saying that right now, in the current ESG environment it's required. Like putting up a pride-flag logo in June to prove you bend the knee to the right groups.

    My personal opinion is theres no getting out of moving away from oil. Personally Im all for it as long theres not a disruption and the price for the consumer is low.
    I doubt if Im still around by then but I would think one day everything will be powered on board/on site by a device with a refuel schedule that is measured in years or decades.

    I definitely feel you on this.... It definitely could go that way... but... I'm going to remain hopeful that they're serious about it... It's a lot of cash to spend on virtue signaling. Maybe.

    In the future of 1930, 'The Black Star Passes' John W. Campbell, the lead character was aboard a giant ten engined airliner flying coast to coast. He looked out the porthole at the vast fields far below, at the corn grown for fuel alcohol and cornstalks to be burnt to charcoal to refine the increasingly poor iron ore from Mesabi. Neighboring fields had bumper crops of castor beans to provide lubricating oil. But the machines were so advanced, it only took a few men to farm a county.
