Profit before environment. Point proven

The news that BP intend to extract oil from Northern Canada illustrates how the treadmill we are on annuls any thoughts of combating climate change. BP is a company that had traded on its green credentials. Now its credibility is in tatters. The land being exploited, despoiled, polluted belongs in part to the First Nation peoples.
Oil not only drives engines, it fuels the economy so that we engage in pernicious wars and call anyone who resists “terrorist”. The announcement that UK is to invest in wind farms is totally annulled by BP’s intention. The Independent heads this as “The greatest environmental crime in history”.
