Even Elon is calling for an increase in oil production

With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine occurring at the same time that the Biden Team is waging a battle to focus on “climate change” on fossil fuels, Oil prices have spikedespecially on the news that the US may ban the import of Russian oil.

The obvious solution to that is to encourage fossil fuel production in the West, something the Biden Administration seems reluctant to do but clearly needs to do.

It was unwilling to encourage more oil production when Buttigieg was asked by MSNBC curator Stephanie Ruhle”There are things, and I realize this is controversial, it has major environmental impacts, could the president consider allowing the Keystone Pipeline? Or do something with Iran?

He, in response, more or less said “no.” In his words:

Look, the president said all the options were on the table. But we also need to make sure we don’t gallop behind long-term solutions to short-term problems where short-term tactical and strategic actions can make a difference. Like what you have with strategic reserves, there is a part in it to deal with situations like this.

The President has outlined policies that will help cushion the impact of any future energy market volatility by building more of this country’s diversified and self-produced energy base.. ”

However, Musk has more brains than that Biden machine, so he made the obvious in a series of tweets on Friday, saying:

I hate to say it, but we need to increase oil and gas production immediately.

Unusual times require extraordinary measures.

Obviously, this will negatively affect Tesla, but sustainable energy solutions simply cannot react instantaneously to offset Russia’s oil and gas exports.

Musk has a point, especially on the need to replace the massive Russian manufacturing base. Like InsideEVs report on Russian Federation oil production in light of Musk’s tweets:

The Russian Federation is the world’s third largest oil producer, with a market share of 11% of global production, according to US Energy Information Administration. The only countries that rank higher than Russia are the United States (20%) and Saudi Arabia (12%). As for natural gas, Russia is the world’s second-largest producer after the United States.

Fortunately, it’s not just Musk who is calling for the US to start pumping more oil. So does Sen. Marco Rubio of the GOP, speak:

“What I want to hear, I will not, and that is the president announcing that the United States will return to the active business of producing oil and natural gas and exporting it… and that we will to do so with the gradual reduction and complete elimination of Russian oil imports.”

Plus, he said, “America needs to go back to the point where we were in 2019 and 2020, when we exported more than we imported.

The US needs to pump more oil, especially in case the Russian suction column is turned off. That would be obvious, but in Biden’s America, clearly not.
