Show us how it’s done, Joe. Show us how to be fossil fuel free.

Joe, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is.

We’ve all heard him ad nauseam. He’s going to end fossil fuels.

“I want you to look at my eyes. I guarantee you, I guarantee you we’re going to end fossil fuels.”

Feb 2020

“We are going to get rid of fossil fuels.”

I’ve argued that this is impossible if you want to continue to live in a civilized world. Greta Thunberg, who never misses a chance to find a spotlight, made a failed effort at this in 2019. She sailed to the US for a climate conference in a boat called the Malizia II. Much was made of its being “zero carbon”, which is truly amusing. It might be emission-free, but the boat is 100% carbon. The boat is constructed of carbon fiber, which is derived from petroleum– pitch or coal, to be precise. Even the sails are largely plastic. The bucket the crew defecated in? Plastic.

Greta Thunberg's boat: how the teenage climate activist's zero-carbon ...

And Greta’s seagoing accoutrements? Plastic

I’d love to see Biden try it.

There is an aphorism that goes like this:

“Lead by example”

We’re going to end fossil fuels? Show us how it’s done, Joe. Lead by example. Show the country that you can be free of fossil fuels. Show us how to do it.  You have two years left to set the standard. It’s easy to pontificate. I want to see how it works in real life and this is your chance to demonstrate to the country and to the world that your crusade is worthy and real. Up until now, you haven’t given an inch personally to the climate crisis.

Go fossil fuel free, Joe. Prove it can be done. Now is the perfect time. You keep telling is there is climate crisis. Start acting like there is one.

Biden,s theme song CALL ME IRRSPONSIBLE

You can’t have renewables without fossil fuels, joe.
Materials from petrochemicals are critical to the production of solar panels, wind turbines, and batteries.
Most medicines, like aspirin, use oil and natural gas-based petrochemicals in their manufacture, joe.
You’d be up a creek, babbling like a baby without your dementia meds.
joe, your efforts to cease the use of crude oil could be the greatest threat to civilization, not climate change.
Ridding the world of fossil fuels, could result in billions of fatalities from diseases, malnutrition, and weather-related deaths. 

That’s what your puppet master, klaus schwab calls “the great reset,” right?
Billions dead.
Own it, joe.

This means cave man stuff. No metal, no plastic, these people are insane.
I must say I wouldnt miss spandex on grossly obese people.

Biden And McConnell Have Left Our Strategic Petroleum Reserve In Worse Shape Than You Think
comment image

Aided by Mitch McConnell, the Biden administration is selling U.S. oil reserves to offset a portion of his profligate spending.

When joe biden was sworn into office in late January 2021, SPR inventories stood at 638,086,000 barrels. In the most recent U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA) report dated Nov. 11, 2022, SPR inventories have declined to 392,119,000 barrels, a drop of 245.97 million barrels (-38.55 percent).

With this decline to fewer than 400 million barrels, SPR reserves now stand at their lowest level since late March 1984. However, these headlines fail to tell the truth about Biden’s effort to deplete the SPR — which now essentially stands at about 100 million barrels, some 75 percent less than the “official” EIA inventory number. Let me explain.

In August 2022, Biden, in collaboration with House Democrats and feckless Republican Senate leadership, passed and signed into law HR 3684, otherwise known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This bill passed the House of Representatives on a 228-205 vote, with all 220 Democrats and 8 Republicans voting in favor. In the Senate, this bill passed on a 69-30 vote (Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota did not vote), with support from all 50 Democrats and 20 Republicans, including support from the entire Senate Republican leadership (Sens. Mitch McConnell, John Thune, and Mike Crapo).

Tucked away in this monstrous bill (see page 914) was authorization mandating that the secretary of energy, “shall draw down and sell from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve 87,600,000 barrels of crude oil during the period of fiscal years 2028 and 2031.” The bill further added, “Amounts received from the sale … shall be deposited in the general fund of the Treasury during the fiscal year in which the sale occurs.”

In other words, in order to pay for a portion of this $1 trillion in new spending, this law requires the additional sale of oil from the SPR. And by legislating this “trick,” the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) “score” improved, giving the appearance that the infrastructure bill would be less costly to the American taxpayer. However, this was not the first time Biden has used the sale of oil from the SPR to offset a portion of his profligate spending during his tenure as president or vice president.

The genesis for this budget chicanery began in the late stages of the Obama administration. In October 2015, the Obama-Biden administration worked with the same Senate Republican leadership to pass the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015. This act raised the debt ceiling, increased discretionary spending in fiscal years 2016 and 2017, and averted a potential government shutdown. Tucked in this bill was a mandate to sell 58 million barrels of oil from the SPR during fiscal years 2018-2025. Once again, this act was shepherded through the Senate under the leadership of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Not to be outdone, the Obama-Biden administration dipped into this well a second time with the passage of the 2015 FAST Act in December 2015. This bill mandated the sale of 66 million barrels of SPR oil during fiscal years 2023-2025. And once again, the bill was moved through the Senate by McConnell.

Subsequent pieces of legislation including the 2017 Tax Revision Act, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, and America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 also followed suit authorizing the sale of an additional 104.5 million barrels of oil from the SPR. All told, mandated SPR oil sales from these various laws now total 358.6 million barrels, of which 288.1 million barrels have yet to be sold.
