      Obviously, the sky is falling!!   There won’t be jobs in Colorado’s O&G industry!!

      Or, in this world, the S&P500, Dow Jones Industrials, and NASDAQ are all drifting upwards, and Colorado will continue to have a stable but declining number of employers and employees in the industry.

      Shell Hits Its Own Peak Oil, Plans to Reduce Output

      "Shell confirmed that from now it would allocate around 25% of its spending, or $5 billion to $6 billion, to renewable energy and marketing—which includes its gas stations and lubricants business—up from 11% previously."

        That's a lot better than Big Tobacco's efforts to diversify:

        Tobacco companies claim to be developing and selling merchandise to help cigarette smokers quit, but health researchers accuse the industry of trying to hook consumers on different – still dangerous – nicotine products.

        Writing in Annals of Internal Medicine, researchers at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) call the industry’s push into the smoking-cessation market “the pharmaceuticalization of the tobacco industry.”

        “The same hand that’s creating the problem is attempting to create the solution,” lead author Yogi Hendlin said in a phone interview. “But their solution is long-term nicotine maintenance, rather than total tobacco cessation.”
