Follow the money. In this case it's not just about profits, it's about the currency it's self. Everyone needs a constant supply of oil to survive, and oil is priced and sold in US dollars. So if you're in Holland and you want to buy oil, you need to obtain US dollars to buy it. This situation makes the US dollar ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE to people around the world.
Anything that gets in the way of that arrangement is dealt with: Any technology that has the ability to render fossil fuels obsolete is systematically suppressed. The video showed 5 examples of this, but there are many more. Nations that try to sell oil in currencies other than the USD are treated as enemies, Iraq is a good example of that. Normally they don't go to such extreme measures as they did when Iraq agreed to sell oil in euros back in 2003, usually they just foment a coup or assassinate people, but Saddam was US trained, so he knew how to defeat their jackals, so they were left with no alternative but to send in the military.
Whether or not you're aware of this, all the big players are keenly aware of it, and it is the unspoken subtext in much of geopolitics.
I agree, follow the money. (Yellow brick road)
Just click the heels of those silver slippers together and say "there's no place like home."
US coal consumption for electric power is about 650,000,000 tons per year, or about 2 tons per citizen.
Annual US oil consumption is about 7 billion barrels that's about 21 barrels per citizen, or about 880 gallons per year.
US natural gas consumption is about 27.3 trillion cubic feet per year or about 84,000 cubic feet per citizen.
That's a lot of money.
Spot on, Maze.
