our current economic system grew and expanded on the back of cheap surplus fossil fuels. There is no way that Biden can change that, no matter what he does. He is locked into it, just like everyone else.

all the political shenanigans we see are merely window dressing on this prime factor.

We have had nothing else than that, yet here we are once again arguing about the politics of it all, as if voting for this or that dogma is going to make the slightest difference to where we are headed.

our future is being determined by the fact that what used to be cheap and affordable, isn't any more. We are still partying like it is.

we are driving ourselves to the point where the oil we need will cost more to extract than the energy obtained from it.

at which point our precious oil becomes worthless.And we will vote for the next lunatic who says it isn't true.
