New Ad Highlights California’s Increasing Dependence on Foreign Oil (Terrorist Nations)

40% of the nation’s oil imports are because California imports 70% of its oil.  While we have more than enough oil for our own use and to export, Newsom prefer buying from terrorists than giving jobs to Californians.

“Instead of continuing such heavy dependence on unreliable foreign sources of oil – and sending roughly $25 billion overseas each year in the process – California could choose to continue to produce oil in state, under the most strict environmental and public health protections in the world.

As Cal State Bakersfield economics professor Mark Evans told the Bakersfield Californian in November of last year, the state’s plan to limit production effectively means the state will buy oil from the Middle East instead of from California. Evans also rejected the notion that limiting in-state production is a means to achieve climate goals, pointing out that increased imports will result in increased emissions as tankers bring oil to our ports from other continents.

The anti-Israel Democrat Party, led by Newsom in California, is working hard to finance the terrorists, so they have money to kill off Israel.  This is another government policy of anti-Semitism—as always, led by Democrat.

New Ad Highlights California’s Increasing Dependence on Foreign Oil

Extracting Fact, 1/27/20  

As state agencies in Sacramento move to restrict in-state production, a new ad is highlighting the direct impact on California consumers and businesses: increased prices and even greater dependence on unreliable foreign sources of oil. 

California already imports 70% of the oil it uses every day. While the state makes up just 13% of the U.S. population, it consumes more than 40% of the country’s oil imports. 

As the new ad from Californians for Energy Independence notes, there are risks that come with heavy reliance on foreign oil. Last summer, markets were roiled by a drone missile strike on production infrastructure and a series of attacks on tankers in the Persian Gulf. Decreasing in-state production makes California consumers and businesses even more dependent on these unreliable sources for crucial energy supplies. In 2018, more than half of California’s foreign oil imports came from the Middle East.

Instead of continuing such heavy dependence on unreliable foreign sources of oil – and sending roughly $25 billion overseas each year in the process – California could choose to continue to produce oil in state, under the most strict environmental and public health protections in the world.

As Cal State Bakersfield economics professor Mark Evans told the Bakersfield Californian in November of last year, the state’s plan to limit production effectively means the state will buy oil from the Middle East instead of from California. Evans also rejected the notion that limiting in-state production is a means to achieve climate goals, pointing out that increased imports will result in increased emissions as tankers bring oil to our ports from other continents.

So, while Sacramento pursues policies that economists reject as folly, California consumers and businesses carry the burdens: increased prices and increased risks through heavy dependence on unreliable foreign oil.

  1. Really??? says

    Thee is no fixing low IQ stupid.

    The prejudice mapped out and crafted by Moon Beam Brown it in full force in the Democrat Party of Calif.

    Why would anyone want to make the State and Nation independent of strong arm bullying of petty dictators and cultures that would in a heart beat destroy Christian and other religious freedom of this nation?

    Stupid is as Stupid does.

  2. Typical leftist ploy. Claim Green New Deal compliance while bringing in the “world ending carbon” through the back door.
    Californians pay more for gas than anyone in the country and we deserve to. Nobody read the fine print in the last gasoline tax increase legislation and we got bit in the butt.
    Until the GOP grows a pair we are at the mercy of these socialist yahoos.

    WHAT?

    With all the push for wind mills, solar panels and electric cars, why worry about any fossil fuel.

  4. Mary Cunningham says

    The green sources will not supply our needs reliable especially as more electric cars are added. Additionally we have off shore reserves that naturally leak from the sea floor and contaminate the shore. More drilling there would relieve the pressure and help with future natural leaks. Foreign drilling to provide our fuel and then ship it is crazy but I wonder who is getting paid . Corruption rules
