It was done in the early seventies when the benefit outweighed the cost. In those days solar and wind and all the renewable stuff and electric cars were not on the radar. Any cost was worth having a reliable source of energy. If governments haven't been planning for this for the last 40 some years there is nothing we can do. Do you want it to be left to decay into the environment on it's own? As part of moving away from fosil fuels we have to be prepared to spend money to clean up what we have all been using and benefitting from for all these years. What we save from using renewables will go to offset the cost of having a cleaner environment when these things have gone.

The oil industry should be cleaning up their messes.

if thats the deal the signed up for then they would, but they aren't that stupid to sign a deal like that are they?

The government and the tax payer have to suck it up. Sucsessive governments have known it would happen one day
and should have been planning for it, but like thay always do they put off doing something that makes them look unpopular
and put it onto another government.

Hey, the Maori Renee on their final last ever settlements all the time, the government likewise a law unto themselves, can tell the oil companies, we changed our mind, clean up your own damned messes
