Democrats’ War On Fossil Fuels Isn’t As Bad As It Looks… It’s Worse

The US has gobs of fossil fuels and one of the cleanest extraction processes on the planet. But the more environmentally sound practice for Dems is to get it offshore and move it here while we wait for the Electric Vehicle Golden Age to dawn.

Politicians insist that dawn will come around 2030, or else. Or else, what? All of their apocalyptic predictions were false. Not once have they gotten right. So, dates and Democrats are not things that can be trusted, especially dates announced by Democrats.

It is a list of poor prognostications that grows longer every year, but they persist. We are doomed and the solution is to stop relying on energy produced here by people less likely to vote for them. We should instead depend on rare metals from nations where people don’t get to vote at all.

Talk about a red flag.

Lithium, Nickle, Cobalt. Things we do not have or in the quantities needed for the new day to dawn. Whose extraction is not just a dirty, carbon-intensive mess but that will occur outside the reach of our environmental control.

Offshoring. Jobs, money, everything at the expense of the environment we are sacrificing to save from ourselves, they say.

It’s quite a contradiction.

Here’s another one. Our salvation from high gasoline prices is a more expensive alternative.

The price of lithium is up almost 500% in the past twelve months. That’s before any increased demand is created by their electric vehicle future. Millions of new batteries would be needed, many of them larger than anything yet engineered. All depended on foreign interests who do not have the same interests as we do.

A component without which the new day will never dawn for transportation few cannot afford now. Charged with electricity we have no way to generate now and no plan to accommodate either eight or eighty years from now.

There are too many hurdles to overcome, barriers created by the Green-Energy advocates.

It can’t be done and many of those pushing it know that. It’s part of the plan.

You won’t be able to drive the car you have and can’t afford the vehicle they say you need. The observant among us understand that this is the answer but to a different question. Not what do Americans do, but how do Americans do what they want us to do?

There is no strategic lithium reserve. We do not have any other way to make the Democrat future. It is built on dependency.

They want you to depend on them for access, mobility, care, everything. And the Left is willing to rely on nations that would rule us for our resources rather than provide them to keep us whole.

America is to become a Hospice from sea to shining sea. A land where you are managed in near-darkness until you die. The only question remaining is managed by who? It won’t be the Democrat party. Neither the Russians nor Chinese would put up with it.
