They show smiling engineers in front of green fields, and of all things a solar array. We are told that hundreds of thousands of jobs are “created” by oil & gas extraction. We are assured our environment is their top priority. We are told the oil & gas industry is working on ensuring we are energy independent and our national security depends on them.
