Because burning something is faster than putting it together?
It's amazing how that it takes earth billions of years to form mountains and other parts of the earth's crust, and how in contrast all that can go to shit with a 12 point earthquake or a volcano eruption.

So you don't have actual numbers, you just like being in the "we gonna run out of oil tomorrow" camp? You do you, man.

best number ive read in recent years was we have up to a few hundred years worth of oil to use, assuming that we will invent our way out of a lot of the things we currently use oil for in excess.
the realistic estimates ive read indicate that since we are only using more oil year after year, we could run out of oil (in the practical sense) within ~50 years.
this is based off of literal executives from companies like BP, the same ones that have gone to extreme measures, like drilling deep into the ocean VS setting up a spicket on land.
humans have used around 1.3 Trillion barrels of oil in total.
no matter what, this is not long term sustainable.

Yeah, i like reading Nostradamus from time to time.

But we digress. How do you know we've burned through a large portion of fossil fuels already? Can't be because some BP exec said so.

Canada has large reserves and can't get it to the US since Brandon stopped the Keystone pipeline.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_reserves_in_Canada
You do realize that the heave crude that Canada would have transported via the XL pipeline a) would do nothing to change internationally set oil prices and b) is not even used in the United States. The US uses "Light Sweet Crude." The stuff that comes from Canada is a heavier crude that would be shipped to international markets. All one has to do is look at the disaster caused by the BP Oil spill that the southern coastal states and marine life are still dealing with to this day to understand the concerns on the XL pipeline and it traversing some environmentally sensitive areas in the United States.

One reason- CHINA. Guess where all the batteries come from? Guess where many current parts for my new Jeep come from? An 'American' vehicle with OEM Chinese wheels, suspension, and steering parts? Yup. So disappointing on so many levels.
China is not what is driving the move to electric cars. China will definitely be a long term factor, but currently, China doesn't really even have an internationally competitive vehicle that is DOT/NHTSA certified for sale in the USA. That said, Americans had laughed at KIA's and Hyundai's years ago... they ain't laughing anymore, they're buying. The Telluride is now one of America's most in-demand vehicles.

The US itself has plenty of oil.

If people want green energy, maybe they should stand up for nuclear instead of falling for cheap bullshit like wind and solar.

PS
Let's go Brandon!
agree that overall nuclear sounds like a better solution; definitely not a 'big fan' (Get it?) of wind and solar

I'm ready to travel by bicycle. Electric bikes are actually pretty sweet.

70% of UK deaths are fully vaccinated.
FDA and Pfizer are pushing ages 5-11 vaccine based on 2% difference between placebo group and vaccinated.
WHAT A SCAM.
