It absolutely does.
And it also spurs investment in fossil fuel production.
Guess which comes on line using existing technologies, and existing knowledge into an existing infrastructure faster?
Fossil fuels need to stay high for a long time for the alternatives to become cost competitive. And they just won't stay that high for that long because there is just so much supply and we are so good at extracting it, and getting better all the time.
We literally need to be running out of recoverable reserves before any of the currently considered alternatives become cost competitive. With the possible exception of nuclear if government would get out of the way.
