3. I worked for an oil company a long time ago.

Knowing oil would run out eventually, they were trying to branch out into solar energy as well as other businesses like chemical manufacturing, coal, wineries etc. They found out that oil workers aren't solar panel makers, coal miners or grape stompers. So they sold off that other stuff and tied their fate to oil because it was the only thing they knew how to do. Which is the same reason there were buggy whip makers to the bitter end.
