https://michaelshellenberger.substack.com/p/biden-shouts-no-more-drilling-there I don't get this. You take away a resource that 100% of people NEED and use daily. Can't keep blaming this Russia/Ukraine shit. At some point you have to pony up and use the resources we have available to us. How is not drilling the best interest of your citizens? Even the crazy lefties that voted this in. We're no where near getting off oil. I'm for greener energy. I've done the simple "green" things to reduce energy usage in my house. LED lights in every fixture. Extra seals around doors. Turn down therm...
I have to take issue with the idea that lawn mowers emit as much CO2 as passenger vehicles. It’s directly related to how much fuel is combusted. If you run your mower once a week and use a half gallon of gas to do so, that’s no where near what a probably average commuting person consumes in one day. Consequently no where near the CO2 emissions either, not that that even really matters.

CO2 isn’t the evil boogeyman that they make it out to be.
It makes a great bogeyman though, as it is impossible to go about modern life without producing CO2.
I have to take issue with the idea that lawn mowers emit as much CO2 as passenger vehicles. It’s directly related to how much fuel is combusted.CO2 is exhaust from a muffler after burning the fuel. Your mower maybe has a spark arrestor out in CA or fire prone areas. The CO2 from a riding mower or even push mower is exponential worse than a car. There's NO muffler filtering anything. As a total, it's substantially more than you'd think. Passenger cars emit way less than one would think. Diesel is another conversation. A lawn mower pisses out CO2 like no other vehicle or motor. We don't have to agree that CO2 is a problem or not, but it's just fact. Landscaping lawns puts out fuck tons of CO2. I like golfing and a well manicured course, but the equipment used is putting out more CO2 than you'd think. Again, I don't care. I'm not giving up oil. You ...
catalytic converters convert remaining hydrocarbons to CO2 in reality
It says that lawn mower or off road engines emit “up to” 11 times other pollutants.
By the way, mufflers don’t filter anything but sound from exhaust, catalytic converters convert remaining hydrocarbons to CO2 in reality. You’ve got to be trolling here, right?
Correct, any carbon monoxide is converted to CO2, even though the catalytic converter is primarily to remove nitrogen compounds produced when atmospheric NO2 is heated in the ICE. Those nitrogen compounds are the "other" pollutants mentioned above.
Elections over let's see gas jump a few bucks this winter.

Limo liberals never cared about gas prices
Biden Admin Quietly Greenlights Plan to Build Huge Gulf Oil TerminalThe Biden administration has quietly approved plans to build a new crude oil terminal in the Gulf of Mexico off Texas, seemingly in contradiction to the president’s climate agenda.The Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration approved the application (pdf) for Enterprise’s Sea Port Oil Terminal, one of four proposed offshore oil export terminals, on Monday.According to the application, the port will be located offshore of Freeport, Texas. It will have 4.8 million barrels of storage capacity and add 2 million barrels per day to the U.S. oil export capacity.In its 94-page decision (pdf), the Maritime Administration said that it had approved the application because the construction and operation of the port is “in the national interest and consistent with other policy goals and objectives.” ...‘Peak Hypocrisy for President Biden’Greenpeace promptly took aim at the Biden administration’s decision regarding the new oil terminal, stating that the new terminal would “emit over 300 million tons of carbon dioxide every year polluting the air and water of Brazoria and Harris counties in Texas while creating serious health threats for everyone living there.”“It is peak hypocrisy for President Biden and Secretary [of Transportation] Pete Buttigieg to shorten the fuse on the world’s largest carbon bomb by greenlighting additional oil export terminals right after lecturing the world about increasing climate ambitions at COP27,” the independent global campaigning network added.The approval of the Sea Port Oil Terminal would facilitate the safe and efficient long-term loading of large crude carriers while simultaneously slashing oil transportation costs and reducing ship collision risks among other issues, according to officials.
Kazakhstan is negotiating with the United States to export oil bypassing Russia, said the American ambassador in Astana, Daniel Rosenblum.Since September, the state-owned company Kazmunaigaz has started export deliveries through Georgia and Azerbaijan through the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline. After oil bypassing Russian ports, Kazakhstan plans to export uranium.
Perhaps the release of oil from our formerly strategic, currently election emergency oil reserve has helped Bidet&Co avoid complete defeat.
Is there a date for that gas station screenshot above?
