Nice idea but I'm afraid oil and it's bi-products plays a major part in most of the products the west consume be it plastics, clothing, electronics, building materials, even in our food.

Supprised the current oil crisis hasn't got a thread of it's own.

This current Russia v Saudi spat combined with Covid19 has resulted in the world running out of storage for oil. Oil companies, who generally have a better credit rating than most banks and nations now have huge overhead libilities and last week were having to pay companies to take their product off them.

If the west switches to cleaner fuel, that will only bring the price down, making it easier for Russia, South Asia, and Africain countries to start building their economies on cheap oil (China are world leaders in clean electricity). I doubt they will care about the polition given that rich countries have built their economies on heavy poluting industry.

Even if/when we switch away from oil, there will be a vested interest in protecting supplies in the middle east. Unless you put massive import tarrifs on countries without green economies.

I think I meant to reply to an earlier post saying "lets get rid of oil"

Despite the ethical dilemmas of other teams, I wouldn't be too bothered if we got a mega-rich, dodgy owner. I could salivate about their morals all I wanted, but really I'd be thinking: new ground, spunking money on transfers, getting into Europe etc.
However, when it is any other team [Newcastle] I will roundly condemn and deride them for their amoral choice. I'm suspecting that is a typical fan for you - or perhaps everyone has more morals than I do?

Watching Sunderland til I die has reinforced by veiw against this. When income from supporters becomes irrelivant to the club the relationship between club and supporters diminish. That seems to have happened a bit since we got to the premiership.

When we were in administration, it was s***, but you knew every penny the club made matters. In the premiership it seems the crowd are only included to put on more of a show for TV audiances.

Cynically correct. (If that's allowed)

Is that an existing phase. If not, you may have just invented the term Cynical Correctness.... for people that always look for the bad in something.

Either way, I think its brilliant and will be using it when people are overly politically correct about stuff
