Globalist Investors Suddenly Gung-Ho about Oil Companies

'African countries that currently have little or no oil and gas output could see billions in energy investments in the coming years...'

“European-based ESG [Environmental, Social and Governance] equity funds have been increasing their investments in energy companies, including Shell Plc, Repsol SA, Aker BP ASA and Neste Oyj, according to analysts at Bank of America Corp,” Bloomberg wrote.

Reuters has reported that Europeans have turned their attention to Africa, despite global efforts to prevent the West from exploiting the continent’s natural resources and exacerbating its alleged climate crisis.

“Energy firms are considering projects worth a total of $100 billion on the continent,” Reuters reported. “African countries that currently have little or no oil and gas output could see billions in energy investments in the coming years, including Namibia, South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Mozambique and Tanzania.”
