I could be wrong, but I think that the Russia war has given Western countries a bit of religion on getting off of fossil fuels.

The EU and California have just banned the sale of internal combustion engine cars after 2035. Dramatic clean energy incentives passed this last year.

It still sucks we're not doing more, but I feel better about progress on climate change this year than I have for years.

It has caused European countries to invest more in fossil fuel infrastructure projects, specifically in Africa, after they had pledged not to do so in COP26

I agree!

It’s nowhere near enough, but it’s a good start.

Yeah, we need better ships and airplanes too for that, not mentioning the industries.
