“So would Nicola like one hundred thousand people to lose their jobs?”
Perhaps she would like those people to work in different jobs and the 100,000 jobs in oil to go elsewhere. We need to stop burning stuff to generate our energy requirements. Whether that is direct burning of hydrocarbons to power cars etc or indirectly burning hydrocarbons to produce electricity or hydrogen to fool ourselves into thinking we are reducing hydrocarbon use.
The oil and gas industry and infrastructure needs to be dismantled completely. Renewables imho are not the answer though they may be part of a solution. Nuclear power is the only realistic option with a possible exception of geothermal. We need to find ways to do this safely and soon. We have nuclear powered submarines, aircraft carriers and such producing power that would suffice a small city. The tech is already in place.
