Energy or oil? If to defeat the much less powerfull tobaco industry misinformation war took 50 years. Oil companies have much more money and resources.
We must demand that the oil companies collect the garbage generated by the product they sell just as happens with batteries and tires.

Not sure I understand the debate of global warming. To me it looks like the following:

Evidence: the earth is warming, no one disagrees.

Hypothesis 1 - The cause is the emission of greenhouse gases generated by human activity such as fossil fuel burning and agriculture.

Hypothesis 2 - It is a natural cycle that has no known cause ...

Is that right?

You can't take damsel here now.
