What is the life blood of the capitalist economy?
There is no modern industrial age without oil.
The motive behind the attack on oil and the oil industry is to bring down the American Capitalist economy.
The economy is like a car engine. You hamper with it’s fuel intake (oil and gas) and it slows down. You mess with it’s emmisions putting a potato on the tail pipe (cap and trade) it dies.
The Left does not want capitalism to succeed. THAT is what defines the Left.
This is NOT about the environment. This is about destroying and replacing capitalism with a centrally controlled government dictated economy. When the state is ownership of the industries, will these same people still have these grave environmental concerns? Of course NOT!
