This is a strong indictment of capitalism at the fundamental level. What we see here is that it is more cost effective for massive corporations to invest billions into propaganda and disinformation than it is for them to invest those same dollars into innovation and technological discoveries to take advantage of emergent energy sources. Capitalism is lauded for being a crucible of innovation, but here we witness it firmly rooted in opposition to innovation, opting instead to allow the balance sheet to dictate a march toward oblivion, even while all available data points toward the presence of better solutions.
