I'd like to see some documentation on that...including all the peripheral industries that service or are dependent on the petroleum industry.
For instance, we can talk about rubber outsoles... but no one thinks about the chemicals that are associated with using rubber outsoles. Let's document how many metric tons of just tolulene are generated, used, and released into the environment, for the express purpose cementing Topy to the bottom of a perfectly good outsole. Or benzene, or MEK.
I've breathed it all my career (trying to reduce or get away from it now in later life)...I'm not a better person for it.
And FWIW, forests are one of, if not the "main factor", for reducing CO2. And have been time out of mind...even when the Bison herds in NA, all by themselves, were equivalent to the livestock industry.
Cows=corn=oil. Pretty well documented the environmental effects of the industrial cattle industry.
