Elon Musk calls for increase in US oil, gas production to combat Russia despite negative effect on Tesla
Musk’s tweet calling for more fossil fuel production was retweeted roughly 20,000 times in 30 minutes
Musk: “Hate to say it, but we need to increase oil & gas output immediately,” Musk tweeted Friday. “Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures.”
Even though the guy knows he is #cutting-his-own-throat (cutting into his profits), by suggesting the US produce more oil and gas; he sees the severity of the situation.
It seems like everybody but Kamikaze Joe and his crew can see the dire straits they have put the USA with their #incompetent-decision-making. At least he is #consistent, he’s been #F-in up ever since he has been sitting in the Big Chair..
As of three days ago:
Reports show that the U.S. is buying 650,000 barrels a day from Russia, a major concern after President Vladimir Putin’s deadly invasion of Ukraine, where hundreds of civilians have been killed after six days of violence. Now, the White House faces bipartisan calls for an increase in domestic energy production.
Is this total insanity or what?? The man ought to be locked up in a padded cell.
Does the time ever come in politics when they are held accountable for their #irresponsible/irrational decision makers?? The fool and his policies are destroying the country and no one seems to be able to put the brakes on him.
Hypothetical situation: If Kamikaze Joe’s family owned car dealership, where he could have bought a luxury car for $80,000, but this genius decided to go next door to another dealer and purchase the same car four $500,000, do we think he will do it?? Now that I ponder the question, he may be that stupid to do it.
One of the biggest reasons most of the policies that our politicians put in place; they do not affect their #sorry-ass. This is why I’ve always been an advocate of them having to live under the same rules and regulations that the common citizen does; such as health insurance, Social Security, retirement plans ect. If those conditions were put in place, we would see more common-sensible, economical and practical way of them doing business.
Will the US run out of oil?
According to the MAHB, the world’s oil reserves will run out by 2052, natural gas by 2060 and coal by 2090. The U.S. Energy Information Association said in 2019 that the United States has enough natural gas to last 84 years.Nov 11, 2021
In the meantime, without #astronomically #increasing the price of gas and oil , I am sure with the progress the world has been making in the natural energy field, we can continue to curb our #dependency in a very short amount of time without bleeding the people at the pumps.
Let’s face it folks; the little guy is always between a rock and a hard place. I have no doubt, by now the world could have been very close to being independent of gas and oil, but there is too much money being made by top dogs, they do not want to shut off that oil spigot.
Metaphorically; it looks like everybody knows his old lady is screwing around except him.
