The noise from oil trolls, oil bots and Big Oil astroturfing has become deafening. Their aim is to overwhelm the climate movement - and thoroughly confuse the public - by posting vast amounts of misleading information and spreading crazy conspiracy theories as well as general nonsense, in very large volumes. They are a naked attempt at pushing Big Oil's agenda of perpetuating fossil fuels irrespective of the very high risk they pose to society's very survival. The Angry Clean Energy on what they are; what to do about them in an environment where Big Oil's obscene 2022 "profits" will likely power them into hysteria mode; and how this is consistent with Big Oil recently dropping any pretense about their goal of stalling - and then reversing - the energy transition.
