Η κατάρρευση του μύθου των μεγάλων πολυεθνικών εταιρειών πετρελαίου

Η. Κονοφάγος , Ν. Λυγερός
Κάποτε η κοινή γνώμη θεωρούσε ότι οι πολυεθνικοί πετρελαϊκοί γίγαντες ήταν οι γνωστές σε όλους μας 7 αδελφές που έγιναν 6 στην συνέχεια με τις αγορές μεταξύ τους, δηλαδή η ExxonMobil, η Chevron, η Shell, η BP, η ENI & η TOTAL. Όμως ο κόσμος της ενέργειας σήμερα έχει αλλάξει δραματικά και ριζικά από την εποχή που όλοι σχεδόν οι πολιτικοί μας συνιστούσαν να προσέχουμε πολύ τα 7 πολυεθνικά αρπακτικά ή όπως χαρακτήριζαν τότε τις 7 αδελφές του τομέα του Πετρελαίου. Έτσι η ενέργεια άλλαξε αλλά όχι η πολιτική. Παρ' όλα αυτά το κοινό που δεν παρακολουθεί τις εξελίξεις, εξακολουθεί ακόμη και σήμερα να πιστεύει ότι οι μεγάλες διεθνείς πετρελαϊκές εταιρείες ή Super Majors όπως λέγονται είναι αυτές που ελέγχουν τις τιμές του πετρελαίου και την πλειοψηφία των παγκοσμίων αποθεμάτων υδρογονανθράκων. Οι παρακάτω εικόνες δείχνουν ότι αυτό δεν ισχύει πλέον και έχει καταρρεύσει ο μύθος αυτός, ενώ οι πολιτικοί μας, αυτοί που είναι άσχετοι με τον τομέα αυτό, εξακολουθούν να χρησιμοποιούν για να προωθούν άλλης μορφής συμφέροντα

Οι Μεγάλες Πετρελαϊκές Ευθύνονται για Τεράστιο Μέρος των Εκπομπών Αερίων του Θερμοκηπίου.

Οι μεγάλες πετρελαϊκές, όπως η Chevron, η ExxonMobil και η ΒΡ είναι ανάμεσα στις 90 επιχειρήσεις που θεωρούνται περισσότερο υπεύθυνες για την έκλυση των αερίων του θερμοκηπίου που οδηγούν στην κλιματική αλλαγή.

Στο συμπέρασμα αυτό κατέληξε έρευνα του αμερικανικού Ινστιτούτου Κλιματικής Υπευθυνότητας, το οποίο εκτιμά πως οι 90 αυτοί όμιλοι έχουν εκλύσει τα δύο τρίτα των αερίων του θερμοκηπίου από τις αρχές της βιομηχανικής επανάστασης. Το ποσό αυτό αγγίζει τους 914 γιγατόνους CO2 από ένα σύνολο 1450 γιγατόνων από το 1751 ως το 2010.

Εξυπακούεται ότι στον κατάλογο με τις 90 εταιρείες συγκαταλέγονται τόσο οι μεγάλες πολυεθνικές του πετρελαίου, όσο και οι κρατικές εταιρείες, όπως είναι η Saudi Aramco και η Gazprom.
