Please bear in mind that others perceive carbonwashing going on at the same time.
West Wave Films' 'spOILed' is worth noting.It's a very professional, documentary-style production with many interviews,data, and a narrative which mirrors much of what you've shared with us.
Everything mentioned within the film is 'true' when viewed through a particular lens or filter.Very contextual.
It would not be 'absolute' within a strict Ayn Rand interpretation.And even she might petition us to 'check our premises.'
If you don't own it,or haven't seen it,it's definitely worth a look.Very revealing.
