We now know that the Democrats position on fossil fuels has morphed from stopping the industry dead in its tracks on day one to the more euphemistically sounding, “transition out of” the entire industry. I gather no liberal has ever heard the word: petrochemicals.
I would have thought it was obvious to anyone with walking around sense that all plastics are made from oil or natural gas. These compounds that become plastics are known collectively as petrochemicals. Since plastics range from automobile bumpers to textiles to sandwich bags and a zillion things in between, we will “transition out” of this industry simultaneously with the fossil fuel industry. Talk about untended consequences. Perhaps this is indicative of the intellectual breath of the liberal mind.
