The Petroleum President

Saudi oil facility

Political leadership has demonstrated a strong reluctance to reduce our dependence on petroleum energy sources. I think the economic interests of the oil industry dictate our leaders’ political priorities. How different might the world be if we’d aggressively pursued alternative forms of energy like sun and wind?

We’re now situated so that a single drone strike can impact the U.S. economy because we’re so completely dependent on oil. And our president awaits instructions from his Saudi “masters” to determine how the United States should respond. To quote our current president, “Sad.”
