Global Elites have no master plan to replace crude oil other than lining their wallets!


by Ronald Stein P.E., America Outloud:

The elephant in the room that no one wants to discuss is that crude oil is the foundation of our materialistic society as it is the basis of all products and fuels demanded by the 8 billion on this planet, of which only one billion existed less than 200 years ago.

As a refresher for those pursuing net-zero emissions, wind and solar do different things than crude oil. Wind turbines and solar panels only generate occasional electricity but manufacture NOTHING for society.


Crude oil is virtually never used to generate electricity, but when manufactured into petrochemicals, it is the basis for virtually all the products in our materialistic society that did not exist before the 1800s. These products are used in infrastructures such as transportation, airports, hospitals, medical equipment, appliances, electronics, telecommunications, communications systems, space programs, heating and ventilation, and militaries.

We’ve become a very materialistic society over the last 200 years, and the world has populated from 1 to 8 billion because of all the products for society and the different fuels for jets, ships, trucks, cars, military, and space programs that did not exist before the 1800s.

If world governments want to rid the earth of crude oil usage, what’s the backup source that can manufacture the supply chain for refrigerators, tires, asphalt, X-ray machines, iPhones, air conditioners, and the other 6,000 products that wind and solar CANNOT manufacture?

Crude oil products are essential to human flourishing for the foreseeable future. Pursuing “net zero by 2050” without first identifying a crude oil replacement would be one of the most destructive developments in human history.

Without crude oil, there would be nothing that needs electricity! Everything that needs electricity to function, like iPhones, computers, data centers, and X-ray machines, is made with petrochemicals manufactured from crude oil!

Until a crude oil replacement is identified, the world will not be able to live without crude oil, which is the basis of our materialistic “products” society.

Most importantly, today, there is a lost reality that the primary usage of crude oil is NOT for the generation of electricity but to manufacture derivatives and fuels, which are the ingredients of everything needed by economies and lifestyles to exist and prosper. Energy realism requires that the legislators, policymakers, and media that are demonstrating pervasive ignorance about crude oil usage, begin to understand the staggering scale of the decarbonization movement.

In fact, all electricity is only possible with parts made from oil derivatives manufactured from crude oil, occasionally generated electricity from weather-dependent wind turbines and solar panels, and continuous and uninterruptible electricity generated from coal, natural gas, nuclear, and hydroelectric power plants.

World leaders continue experiencing a “dangerous delusion” of a global transition to “just electricity” that they believe will eliminate the use of the crude oil that made society achieve so much in less than 200 years. Without those products made from the petrochemicals manufactured from crude oil, policymakers must imagine no jets, ships, defense, or space programs!



Over the last 200 years, after the discovery of the products and transportation fuels that could be manufactured out of crude oil, the world populated from 1 to 8 billion.

Looking back at the history of the petroleum industry, it illustrates that the black cruddy looking crude oil was virtually useless unless it could be manufactured (refineries) into oil derivatives that are now the basis of chemical products, such as plastics, solvents, and medicationsthat are essential for supporting modern lifestyles. The more than 6,000 products that are based on oil are being used for the health and well-being of humanity and the generation of electricity did not exist a few short centuries ago.
