"It's starting to look as if electric cars and clean energy may actually be manage to kill off the fossil fuel industry in the foreseeable future."
Foreseeable? Yes. Immediate, No.
The fossil fuel industry isn't going away for quite a while, if ever. Aviation isn't likely going to go electric unless the cost of hydrocarbons becomes prohibitive. Batteries have, and likely will have, relatively poor energy density compared to the same weight of hydrocarbons. That'll be true for a long, long time. Maybe always. And plastics are going to use hydrocarbon feedstock. Again, for a long, long time.
Also, nothing much is actually going to happen (unless and) until "batteries" get cheap enough to buffer unavailability of wind and solar energy against long periods of cloudy/windless days. That will require vast amounts of dirt cheap storage. That'll probably happen someday, but not for a number of decades. The alternative would be a frightening number of nuclear power plants or occasionally sitting for hours in front of a wood burning fireplace (where does the wood come from) reading physical books by the light of a candle.
