1) The “shortage” of gas/oil is only politically driven.
2) It can be changed by another politician once Obimbo is gone (hopefully, VERY soon.)Any industry that builds up “green energy” under Obimbo’s administration is on shaky ground, politically. The game is over as soon (again, hopefully, VERY soon) as Obimbo is gone... or when someone comes up with a better idea. Frankly, any idea -- as long as it’s not Obimbo’s -- is a “better idea.”
The only thing that would force a switch to green energy would be if there was an actual shortage of oil. And that is the furthest thing from the truth.
Back in the early 60’s, I was reading an Oil and Gas Journal article. The engineer/geologist was writing about how, if we never bought another barrel of oil from another source, we had enough known fields and reserves to last us until well into the mid 2000’s. At that time, I couldn’t even comprehend “the mid 2000’s!”
Remember, he was writing about “known” fields at that time. Remember, also, he was talking about using OUR own oil. Think of all the fields discovered since that time.
Now, there’s a study being done on “renewable” oil and gas and it seems to be proving more than a theory. “Renewable” meaning that certain fields (after becoming unproductive, to a certain degree) are being replenished by Earth, itself. I’ve always had a problem with the “Fossil Fuel” concept, anyway. I just never could figure out how that many dinosaurs and vegetation could die off to produce as much oil and gas that we have that’s “known.”
So, in terms of an energy revolution, this is idiotic at best. If you want people to have the money to invest in a new product, you don’t generate it by killing your economy and politically propping up an industry that’s going to blow over the moment the political winds shift.
Basically, all this amounts to is that Obimbo hates America and that we’re all going to suffer as long as he’s in office -- as if we didn’t already know that.
