"No wonder the oil cartel is grubbing as much money from the public as they can get right now."

personal transport is 20% of the oil usage.

When airlines fly on hydrogen or electricity, let me know.

When plastics and 100,000 products made from oi cease.....let me know.

When NG gas use ends...let me know.

"Wind power produced more than 6 percent of global electricity in 2020 with 743 GW of global capacity (707.4 GW is onshore)."

Now, what percent of the world's transport was 'wind powered'?

let's just look at auto transport -

"There were 10 million electric cars on the world’s roads at the end of 2020, following a decade of rapid growth. Electric car registrations increased by 41% in 2020, despite the pandemic-related worldwide downturn in car sales in which global car sales dropped 16%. Around 3 million electric cars were sold globally (a 4.6% sales share),"


That's out of a billion cars now on the road.

And out of those less than 5% EV CARS, what percent are run on 'wind power' and not NG? or coal?

Probably less than 2%.

And of heavy trucks that get 5mpg on diesel? 0.000000001%?

Airplanes? 0.000000000001%

Ocean liners/freight hauling ships? 0.000000001%
