Please explain to me the meaning of "with more open embrace" on the following sentence - Big Oil is throwing huge resources at the problem with more open embrace of unconventional petroleum developments.
It is strange, but I suppose it means that they are more positive about unconventional petrol developments than they were in the past.
What if we add the article "a"?
Big Oil is throwing huge resources at the problem with more a open embrace of unconventional petroleum developments.
It's still a stilted sentence, but the idea that Big Oil is throwing money at the problem and is embracing unconventional something appears more clear.
The problem is the term "petroleum developments". It makes no sense in the sentence.
Yes - and that's exactly where I intended to place it.
But, for some reason, my hand-eye coordination put it in the wrong place.
Sorry about that.
