    Soon as GOP take over, the oil and gas industry gets tight. Every. Single. Time. Going back to Reagan.
    I have to wonder if it's cause the industry can make "improvements" under the R's due to little regulation that then come around to bear fruit 4-8 years later under the D term. Short term loss for a larger long term gain.

        Doesn't sound like it, but there may be a little overlap?

        Side note: The higher prices for oil also mean better chance of re-opening well fields that were shuttered under cheaper times. So production is forecast higher in the US.

        Also, the boom during Obama's era was done in spite of the green energy policies Dems pushed under him.

            Drew, you know there was a solar community in Florida that didn't lose power during Hurricane Ian, right?

            But we can't invest in renewables. Too expensive. Picking winners and losers. All that ****.
            What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

              That's awesome. I am going to search the Internets for that story. Most hopeful thing I've heard all day.

                I posted about that place in the Hurricane thread. Minimal damage. Their school was set up as a shelter despite not having the typically required generator because it never even lost power. Buried all power and utility lines, lots of greenspaces, designed to funnel water away from housing and buildings, etc. Shows what can be done with sustainability and climate change in mind.

                    Its ridiculous that homes in Florida use anything but solar for domestic hot water. If it works for me(I'd guess 50% of my hot water) it sure the heck will work for close to 100% in Fla. Its easy proven technology that requires a 60 watt pump, some piping and a couple collectors. You don't even have to worry about the piping freezing like I do.

                    • "virtually every Twitter employee I’ve spoken to in the last six months has told me that he or she plans to leave if Mr. Musk takes over"
                      And given IT/IS talent is hard to come by hopefully this means Twitter is destroyed and everyone moves on to something else and that ******* Musk loses his entire 44 billion.

                        Apollo Global Management Inc (APO.N) and Sixth Street Partners, which had been looking to provide financing for Elon Musk's proposed $44 billion buyout of Twitter Inc (TWTR.N), are no longer in talks with the billionaire entrepreneur, said two sources familiar with the matter.

                        Apollo had been in talks to provide preferred equity financing for the deal, alongside Sixth Street, sources previously told Reuters. Apollo, Sixth Street and other investors were looking to commit more than $1 billion in financing for the deal at the time.
                        He's losing funding. I hope he goes bankrupt over this.

                              No one is going to consider Twitter to be essential like Ford, or GM, or a Bank.

                                Twitter is not too big to fail. Musk may be but Twitter hardly is.

                                Musk is an idiot though...how much money has he wasted the last 6 months just to buy Twitter at the exact price he was supposed to buy them for originally? All while killing is reputation by kissing up to Right Wing fascists to the point even his financiers are being forced to walk away from him.
