The West is experiencing its third energy crisis.
*** and ***
This time is different. The third energy crisis was not sparked by Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies or by Iranian ayatollahs. It was self-inflicted, a foreseeable outcome of policy choices made by the West: Germany’s disastrous Energiewende that empowered Vladimir Putin to launch an energy war against Europe; Britain’s self-regarding and self-destructive policy of “powering past coal” and its decision to ban fracking; and, as Joseph Toomey shows in his powerful essay, President Biden’s war on the American oil and gas industry.

The USA went from a net exporter to a net importer all to be “green”. Like “climate change” is a real thing! And, if it was, that it’s not driven by China and India.
We have not built a gasoline refinery in the USA since the 70’s (or so I’m told).
This “electric car” stupidity is just beyond comprehension.
Hopefully the voters can start taking back control.
31T$ of debt should be a huge wake up call.
