Where did I suggest it drives ALL war? It drives war. What percentage of war is acceptable? And the Ukraine conflict is absolutely funded by oil. If not for oil revenue it's ~impossible for Ruzzia to have invaded and probably would have been impossible for Putin to have maintained an autocracy.
Is smoking not bad because some lung cancer isn't caused by smoking?
It is ironic that you're questioning the connection of oil and war on a 'diesel shortage' thread when the shortage is the result of a war funded by oil
You remind me of the game we used to play as kids. Put your forehead on the end of a baseball bat and spin in circles until you can't, and try to run like hell in a (not so straight) line.
Your making yourself so dizzy you dun forgot where ya came from.
A quick reminder of where this all started.
No, I'm 'assuming' it's a lot cheaper to have your military at home than half-way around the world protecting an increasingly scarce supply of oil.
You still haven't backed this up, nor shown how anything would ever change if we stopped using oil tomorrow. But it's amusing watching you chase your tail.
You wanna talk irony. You propose we rid ourselves of oil to become more independent. Meanwhile, China accounts for 80% of the world's solar panel production and provides over 90% of the elements needed to make panels are sourced from there. .
This number has been relatively flat for a decade despite the increase in production of panels, and its about to get worse thanks to our Bozo in Chief who just twisted the dagger in local manufacturing before pulling out.
An Alabama-based solar panel manufacturer is closing down. Why? Check out what Biden did to Trump's solar safeguards for clues.
At least with oil and gas we have the ability to pull it out of the ground, refine it, and sell it iin house if SHTF and the world economy collapsed.
Or another major WW, which is very possible with the likes of Putin and Xi at the helm.
At least we (USA) don't rely on Russia for energy. But We're grossly relying on (Xi) to send us their junk solar equipment.
Yeah, soooo much better!
