Since there is very little most of us can do about a multinational corporation of great ways and means to prevent this kind of thing from happening, I will now take you into my idealistic view of a world (that hopefully exists somewhere in one of the other multiverses out there).
There are highways that collect solar energy that runs it through cars that will be linked to the road by magnets. No more people controlling the wheel. Now, if you want to drink at 8 am to go to your job you hate, congratulations, you can do it and not ruin the rest of our days. We have trolleys in all major areas that transport people around town. They run every 20 minutes without fail because robots electronically run the show. If you need to go from LA to NY, then you can hop on my super fast underground train that gets you cross control in under ten minutes. Can’t imagine why the airlines did not jump aboard this idea.
Back to reality, Exxon made a mess again and nothing will continue to happen to them.
