    1. Big oil has at least 150 years to go. You haven’t got a clue that the World as you know it is made out of oil, from the close you wear to the paint on your porch.

  1. It’s ending though. At this point investing in Big Oil is like investing in whale oil circa 1890 while investing in Green Energy is like investing in electricity in 1910.

    1. If we can get this electrical and solar energy going, Russia’s wealth will crumble. Also don’t care about the rich oil industry folks. They’ve got theirs for a few lifetimes.

    2. Yup. Even carter put Solar panels on the WH roof. Then Reagan was like nope. Gee, I wonder whose pocket they were in. lmao

  2. Love your show. The only MSM calling truth to power on both sides. Thank you for calling out Corp Dems. You should bring Katie Porter on and ask her about what subsidies they get.

  3. Exxon shareholders have voted in two activists who will push for green energy. They know things are changing.

  4. You’ve inspired me. No more fossil fuel! I’ll put a solar panel on my ’04 Elantra. Also, I will steal a bike for commuting on cloudy days.

  5. I think there may be different ways to money other than what we. You can do so much with science.

  6. Of course people would vote for a $15 minimum wage. Because that’s more money for them and less for big oil. I sense a pattern here…

  7. All just Tabloid Broadcasts repeating REAPEATING Tabloid Broadcasts repeating REAPEATING Tabloid Broadcasts / There is a world of New news out there . SPHINCTER

  8. I have been depressed and severally embarrassed until I got to know about Carmen_n._dubois on instagram!!! and their flips had been going smooth and fine for me
