סוף עידן הנפט על פי BP ענקית האנרגיה העולמית

Last week, one of the world’s seven fossil fuel supermajors — Britsh Petroleum, whose legacy dates back to the early days of the oil age — announced, in essence, that the time had come to wind down its core business.

 BP said that by 2030 it would be producing 30 to 40 percent less oil and gas than it does now. It promised to end exploration for hydrocarbons in new countries and to increase tenfold its stake in “low-carbon investment.”

 
Yes, the announcement came with caveats — it excludes its work with Russian gas giant Rosneft (BP owns a fifth of that company); some of those "low-carbon investments" are likely to be destructive in their own right, like biomass; and BP has a shaky record on follow-through (in 1997 it declared the company’s initials would henceforth stand for Beyond Petroleum, a stance it maintained for just a decade before doubling down on oil and gas).
 
But the news was nonetheless seismic for what it says about the decade past and the decade to come.
