It seems to me that those who hate the fossil fuel industry, which are primarily liberals, should not be allowed to benefit whatsoever from anything made with crude oil. And I’m not just talking about gas for cars or heating fuel.
The Ranken Energy Corporation explains on its website that “A U.S 42-gallon barrel of crude oil yields about 45 gallons of petroleum products in U.S. refineries because of refinery processing gain.”
The site goes on to say:
One 42-gallon barrel of oil creates 19.4 gallons of gasoline. The rest (over half) is used to make things like:
|Solvents||Diesel fuel||Motor Oil||Bearing Grease|
|Ink||Floor Wax||Ballpoint Pens||Football Cleats|
|Bicycle Tires||Sports Car Bodies||Nail Polish||Fishing lures|
|Cassettes||Dishwasher parts||Tool Boxes||Shoe Polish|
|Motorcycle Helmet||Caulking||Petroleum Jelly||Transparent Tape|
|CD Player||Faucet Washers||Antiseptics||Clothesline|
|Percolators||Life Jackets||Rubbing Alcohol||Linings|
|Skis||TV Cabinets||Shag Rugs||Electrician’s Tape|
|Tool Racks||Car Battery Cases||Epoxy||Paint|
|Mops||Slacks||Insect Repellent||Oil Filters|
|Roofing||Toilet Seats||Fishing Rods||Lipstick|
|Denture Adhesive||Linoleum||Ice Cube Trays||Synthetic Rubber|
|Speakers||Plastic Wood||Electric Blankets||Glycerin|
|Tennis Rackets||Rubber Cement||Fishing Boots||Dice|
|Nylon Rope||Candles||Trash Bags||House Paint|
|Water Pipes||Hand Lotion||Roller Skates||Surf Boards|
|Shampoo||Wheels||Paint Rollers||Shower Curtains|
|Guitar Strings||Luggage||Aspirin||Safety Glasses|
|Combs||CD’s & DVD’s||Paint Brushes||Detergents|
|Anesthetics||Artificial Turf||Artificial limbs||Bandages|
|Dentures||Model Cars||Folding Doors||Hair Curlers|
|Cold cream||Movie film||Soft Contact lenses||Drinking Cups|
|Fan Belts||Car Enamel||Shaving Cream||Ammonia|
And this is just 144 of more than 6,000 items!
The U.S. Department of Energy also tells us:
Petrochemicals derived from oil and natural gas make the manufacturing of
over 6,000 everyday products and high–tech devices possible. Major
petrochemicals—including ethylene, propylene, acetylene, benzene, and toluene, as well as natural gas constituents like methane, propane, and ethane—are the feedstock chemicals for the production of many of the items we use and depend on every day.
Modern life relies on the availability of these products that are made in the
United States and across the globe. We zero in on some of these common
household and commercial products below. The list may surprise you!
Here’s the list the DOE provided:
Candies and gum
Car battery cases
Ice cube trays
Roller skate wheels
Soft contact lenses
Sports car bodies
Truck and automobile parts
Wind turbine blades
Think about it. If we stop drilling for oil, these are just SOME of the things that we will no longer be able to manufacture.
So, what do we do?
I have a proposal, and I sincerely hope Republicans in Congress take this up. I know it’ll never happen, but it would be nice if it did.
My proposal is simple. Those who oppose producing oil and natural gas should not be allowed to purchase or use anything made by or from petroleum products. Period.
That’s right — no telephones, no laptops, no new clothing, no toothpaste, deodorant or body soap. No toilet seats, dishes, ball point pens or ink. That’s on top of the obvious — no gasoline or any oil lubricant whatsoever. Nothing made with plastic.
Let them live that way for, say five or ten years. Something tells me they’ll change their mind about petroleum products after that…
Just thinking outside the box…
