Might as well end any kind of export business here. If China Joe has his way the US will again be an importer of energy. He seems to think we will drive less or live in colder homes if he stops energy production in America. $7 a gallon transportation fuel and 4,000 % higher cost electricty is his goal. Won't have any effect on "climate change" but his radical base will think He is trying. AOC's 12 years has 9 years to go. Saudi's, Iran's and Russia are making plans to replace our energy industry.
