At Geoscience for the Future, we often discuss how Geoscience is crucial for a more sustainable future; for renewable energy, for much-needed resources, for hazard mitigation. But what about the many geoscientists who still work in the oil and gas industry – what role will they play? Will the climate crisis pull the plug on the sector as we know it? In this editorial, we consider what the climate crisis means for the oil and gas sector by asking scientists to share their perspectives on its future.
