What happens if oil doesn’t recover?
Maybe it shouldn’t. Maybe we shouldn’t have an economy that rises and falls on the condition of the fossil fuel industry. Maybe a concerted effort needs to be made to work on alternatives, once and for all.
What will life look like when things settle down and we are actually able to move beyond the current restrictions and return to some sense of normal? Will we have learned anything, or will there be a rush to pick up where we left off before the shit hit the fan?
Climate “realists” should have a wake-up call but probably won’t. It’s dramatically obvious now how much of an effect we have when we’re driving all over creation versus the noticeable improvements when we’re not. Tough to deny this, though some will continue to do just that.
