Why Biden’s War On Gas And Oil Is A Crippling Pipe Dream

Ignoring the graphic lesson of the havoc a pipeline shutdown can bring, Michigan’s governor, Gretchen Whitmer, is trying to close the operations of a critical oil-and-gas pipeline that serves Canada and the Midwest. Her stated rationale doesn’t hold oil, er, water. Her real rationale is hostility to the oil and natural gas industry—a hostility that is fervently shared by the White House.

This episode of What’s Ahead explains why the Biden Administration’s goal of ultimately replacing oil and natural gas with wind and solar power is a dangerous pipe dream. To do so would require gargantuan amounts of minerals, and that, in turn, would necessitate a catastrophic increase in tearing up the Earth for numerous new mines and enormously expanding existing ones. Just one example, we would need a 20-fold increase in nickel.

The inconvenient truth is that we can’t do without natural gas and oil.

    “Her real rationale is hostility”

    Yes it is hostility against a section of pipeline under the straits of Mackinaw that is well past it’s expiration date and would wreak havoc if and when it started to leak fowling the great lakes.

    The Spics invading from the south need more FF. So, to be “humane,” BIDΞN will find a way to take it away from Whitey and give it to the invaders.  “American values,” and all that, you know.  We have to have “equity” to become a more perfect nation (and fill his pockets with more bribe money).

    His woke solution:  turn the country into an insane asylum.

    Theed, the Biden-creature is only doing his Yid masters bidding. Just like every other kosher-friendly uS ‘president’. If it wasn’t the semi-senile fruitloop Bidens ass warming the ceremonial WH throne’, it would be someone else just as pliable doing and saying the exact same things. The main point here is, political ‘leadership’ or what passes for it in the uS, does not originate from something called the ‘white house’, or anywhere else in the visible power structures people commonly believe to be the ‘government’.

    The (real) orders come from …..somewhere else. Not suggesting mush-brain Biden isnt culpable himself in his way, of course he is, but whatever he is, in charge, he isn’t. Maintaining physical control over the uS southern border is simply not a priority or concern for the real rulers. They are far more worried about trying to weaken Russia, China, and starting a war in Ukraine. Stuff like that and more besides. Maintaining control over their own southern border isnt something they can be bothered about in any meaningful way. So, yea, the Mexi’s are definitely coming for dinner so might as well get ready for that one too…lol.

    The uS is a land of endless distraction, fakery and illusions. Like this idiot here, that thinks the ‘white house hates the uS oil cartel’, err industry. Laughable on its face of course, but, amusing all the same.

    The standard American opinion. The main component of wind turbines is iron, a material we have in abundance. So-called “rare earths” aren’t that rare and can be recycled, or aren’t required at all.

    The inconvenient truth is that we can’t do without natural gas and oil.

    The even more inconvenient truth is that gas and oil are running out. Duh.

    Prepare for a future with muss less energy, much less mobility and even without private car ownership. Go online instead and dump the clunker, Covid has shown the way. Solar and wind suffice to keep an advanced but localized society going. Start a vegetable garden. You’ll be fine without oil and gas.

    Or if you are not into gardening… hire a farmer!

    200 households can afford one on a permanent basis, provided there is mutual commitment, expressed by a $2000,-/household one-time transferable investment and subsequent participation:

    In return the farmer can provide said 200 households/500 mouths with all the food they will ever need, by excluding all the middlemen, like transport, storage, trading, supermarkets, packaging.
