Whether you disagree or not with this administrations decision a call to your congressmen / congresswomen both in Washington and your states capital matters.
No I’m not for it, there are Wells all over Texas and Louisiana that hit and then were capped. There is no shortage of oil to be extracted.No, it was an argument (or maybe a jab) cloaked as a rhetorical question. So let me ask you a question - are in favor of opening the Arctic? It kinda sounds like you might be. If so, state why, please, since the demand for oil has dropped precipitously since the pandemic.
Oil-and-gas drillers and oil-field services providers have been cutting jobs in massive numbers, amid a surge of bankruptcy filings, as both demand and prices collapsed. A month ago, Schlumberger, the giant US oil-field services provider, threw another 21,000 job cuts on top of that pile.
Fortunately a realively low percentage is used for plastic production, but the data is hard to come by now, as stated in the article I'll link below.No I’m not for it, there are Wells all over Texas and Louisiana that hit and then were capped. There is no shortage of oil to be extracted.
My statement pointed to the fact that we get worked up about oil products depending on where they come from, and wether or not the products made from it are products I like.
Plastics production accounts for about 4 percent of global oil production. That’s according to figures for 2012, so now it may well be higher.
If I used a different pair of boots and backpack for each trip then you may have a point. But my boots last me a couple to a few years as do my backpacks.Are you gonna stop buying high dollar boots and packs made from petroleum based materials?
I don't know about taking others but it has always been my opinion that a TRUE environmentalist would indeed commit suicide to limit their carbon footprint. Since we see little to none of that happening, those people have made a compromise. Where do we draw the line?As morbid as it it, the only thing for a truly committed environmentalist to do is to kill themselves, and take as many others as they can. Who wants that?
