A recent report suggested that if the U.S. oil export ban were reinstated, it would reduce global carbon emissions by as much as 80-to-181 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent each year.
That sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?
We should reinstate the ban that Barack Obama lifted during his presidency now that the U.S. is a net exporter of oil, it will save the planet!
This all sounds wonderful until you realize that Greenpeace is the co-sponsor of the report is and it’s incredibly slanted towards that organization’s goals.
Naturally, all of the current democratic candidates for President also think that banning oil exports will be a wonderful tonic and a giant step towards reducing carbon emissions.
