The above was once a bit of gallows humor.

The humor is gone but the gallows remain.

Now 🦖 they are going to start extracting oil using wind turbine generated renewable energy.

The story should have been titled, "🦕🦖 Big Oil plans to use Renewable Energy to further pollute our planet".

Agelbert NOTE: Above you may feast your eyes on a sample of wind turbines that 🦕🦖 Big Oil 😇😉😈  will no longer claim are "not ready for prime time", "a bad investment because the wind don't blow all the time", and that other mendacious nugget they have piously trottted out for about forty years, "too low in EROEI". Now we know what Tillerson REALLY meant when he said, "We will adapt to that.". Everyone thought he was talking about Global Warming when, all along, the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn were planning to use Renewable Energy to profit (over people and planet ) MORE from extracting MORE Hydrocarbons. Clever bastards, aren't they?

It takes a special kind of STUPID to believe that lowering the up front costs of extracting hydrocarbons, the burning of which is guaranteed to cause the extinction of most, if not all, vertebrate species, is a Corporate "🦕🦖 fiduciary Responsibility". And that is in addition to the current MORE, not less, "Business as usual"  of INCREASED, not decreased, hydrocarbon sources exploitation.

But then, the 🐉🦕🦖 Hydrocarbon Hellspawn are fervent  CAPITALISTS, so gettin' MORE "profits" while "externalizing" the pollution costs to we-the-people is their RELIGION, so they just keep doing what they do MORE AND MORE, not less.

“This is a great day for Equinor and the Johan Sverdrup partnership, consisting of Lundin Norway, Petoro, Aker BP and Total,” ... ... This day also marks the start of a new phase as we prepare to bring Johan Sverdrup oil to the international market.” ... ... The Mongstad plant is expected to receive up to 440,000 barrels of oil per day from Johan Sverdrup when the first development phase reaches peak production. When the second phase is completed in 2022, Mongstad will receive up to 660,000 barrels of oil per day.

Agelbert NOTE: The following is the kind of news that rarely makes the papers. The oceans are getting rougher as the atmsphere warms and the ice melts. There is a GIANT 🌊 price to be paid by ocean going vessels that we are ALL going to be forced to pay from Catastrophic Climate Change.
