Calls for abandoning oil is ‘unrealistic,’ says OPEC chief

RIYADH: Calls for completely abandoning oil and fully relying on renewable energy have been deemed “wrong” and “unrealistic” by Haitham Al-Ghais, the secretary-general of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries.

“If oil disappeared, this would also affect the production of renewable energy, such as manufacturing of wind turbines and solar panels, as their production is linked to oil products,” Al-Ghais said.
