I’m sorry for the length of this post, but I had no choice but to spell it out to make those simpletons understand it.
With conspiracists I’m obviously referring to the desperate warmists that warp their panties in a pretzel in order to ignore the illogic of their claims. For instance: car makers and “big oil” are trying to undermine “real” global warming science, and wage disinformation campaigns. Why? Well obviously, because VW makes petrol engines. Yeah so? They make diesels too, and you can get them to run on LPG as well, if you add some equipment. But they also make cars and actually, it’s their cars that use the engines they make. So yes, they will very much be willing to adopt a new fuel technology when that becomes de rigeur for cars, in order to be able to continue selling cars.
Come on… Please!
Analogy (showing how ridiculous the claim is):
It’s clear why one of the largest typewriter companies in the world was fiercely opposed the computerisation of offices, because they would lose marketshare and disappear from the face of the earth if everyone would switch from typewriters to computers.
This is the reason why IBM lobbied for laws putting a stop to the installation of computers in offices. Also they have waged a thoroughly comprehesive, long-running disinformation campaign disguising themselves as the largest maker of mainframes (S/360 through to z/Series), and the inventor of the PC (later supposedly developed into the PS/2 with it’s dedicated operating system, OS/2, also running on older-architecture PC’s, which they did not return to making when the PS/2-adventure proved to be a failure. Because they were making PS/2s with Micro Channel Architecture extension cards/slots, not the older (slower) Industry Standard Architecture extension slots, and obviously they could not make the transfer back, which would be the third time they changed the architecture of the computers they were making:
- mainframes – PC’s
- pc’S – PS/2’s
- PS/2’s – PC’s
This excludes the ttanafer from type writers to PC’s.)
This entire ruse, in order to discourage other companies from entering the lucrative typewriter market, and instead to have them waste their effort trying to enter the dead-end, fictitious PC market. How cunning of IBM! The devious bastards. But they were effective though: thanks to that, the type writer business is exclusively theirs! They have no competitors, so now sell all type writers that are being sold.
I can confidently make that claim, because nobody makes / buys typewriters anymore, whereas the machines dominated the business machine market (hence the name International Business Machines), they have been thoroughly replaced by computers.
In order to prove yhe falsegood of this elaborsteclaim, I point you to the logo: the letters IBM divided into 8 lines, for the 8 bit computers they were making & selling.
And Nissan, to pick a car company, also maemkes piston engines for crude-oil-derived fuels, yet now they also produce the Leaf, a full-electric car, and use it to boost their image.
So, what would “Big oil” do? Become big hydrogen, or big solar, or whatever: they’ll adapt to changing circumstances.
