It's not in their interest that we use renewable energy

Most oil reserves in the world today are not owned privately by companies but are controlled by sovereign governments.  They wish to maximize price, of course, and thus they routinely cut back production quotas to drive the price of oil higher,just as a private company might do.  But they also have a secondary objective that is not as well understood among the oil-consuming countries:  they are highly conscious of their strategic interests in preventing the formation of political will in the West that might lead to a sustained effort to make the investments necessary to complete an historic shift away from oil and coal to renewable sources of energy.
