Doubling Production?

Oil executives testified they planned to double oil production by 2050. That is preposterous on at least two grounds:

  1. We have already hit peak oil, there is not enough oil left to double production.
  2. It is mandatory to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero. Doubling them would do as much damage as a global nuclear war.

In other words, they are lying through their teeth. They want to postpone clean energy as long as possible.
