    whose current value is based on drilling more oil out of the ground than the planet can possibly survive, so that's the top of the food chain right there. If they have to calculate the true cost of doing business (wrecking the planet, polluting communities) into their stock value, then at least we have a fighting chance to slowly ween ourselves off fossil fuels. And for the other companies it won't be economically viable to base their business on continued increasing fossil consumption if the spigots at the top are turned down.

    But if you have a better solution to avert climate catastrophe, I'm all ears.
