We sell oil as influence

Japan is a huge recipient. We also buy it to influence.

T. Boone's holdings are in natural gas. He wants everything to run on it. He was going to cover West Texas with wind farms, he pulled out of that.

Is he a self-serving promoter? Yes.

But, his argument that we subsidize Middle East oil with the US military is correct. And that cost never reflects in the market price, it goes on the national debt ledger year after year.

I haven't heard anyone talk about this or do an analysis.
