It's not our fault that this is how society evolved. The thing you are missing is that those who are complaining about the Oil industry are complaining about the lies and the PR mouthpieces that they pay large sums of money to for the sole purpose of deceiving the public. That's what we are complaining about...the blatant lies.

It's no different from how the tobacco industry behaved.

The top 3 primary sources for greenhouse gas emission are transportation, electricity and industry.

What % does Commercial and Residential contribute in greenhouse gas emissions?

(11% of 2016 greenhouse gas emissions) – Greenhouse gas emissions from businesses and homes arise primarily from fossil fuels burned for heat, the use of certain products that contain greenhouse gases, and the handling of waste.

However, Land Use and Forestry (offset of 11 % of 2016 greenhouse gas emissions) – Land areas can act as a sink (absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere) or a source of greenhouse gas emissions.
