It’s a simple fact that the US is now a net oil EXPORTER. So why do we still IMPORT billions of barrells from Saudi Arabia? Simple it’s to launder our money.
but there’s no reason for this. None at all. We could tell the middle east to go stuff it. And pull our troops out completely. Our oil supplies now meet domestic needs and the US-Mexico-Canada shelf is now self supplying. And things might only get better IF we hold our population back. Can you imagine how awash in oil we’d be if we stopped the invasion and held our population to 180 million?
Much of this gain is from fracking and we need to set up rigorous controls to protect our drinking waters from horrific practices in the fracking industry. But it can be done. And more research into fracking fluids and management would help – currently they simply leave left over fluid in large pits to evaporate! Fracking might need to be restricted where it encounters water supplies.
And sadly, much of the reason for us meeting our energy supply is because of the 14 yr long Hyper-Depression America is in.
