Elon Musk Has Called For An Increase In Oil And Gas Output – And For Good Reason


Tesla CEO Elon has associated himself with environment-friendly projects multiple times. This includes solar power and his recommendation for implementing a carbon tax to deal with carbon emissions that are emitted from fossil fuel combustion.

On Friday night, Musk tweeted that the U.S. needs to increase its oil and gas output.

“Hate to say it, but we need to increase oil & gas output immediately,” wrote in his tweet Musk. “Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures.”

“Obviously, this would negatively affect Tesla, but sustainable energy solutions simply cannot react instantaneously to make up for Russian oil & gas exports,” he continued in another tweet.

His words, extraordinary times, mean that he is referring to the increase in oil and gas prices that have come because of the Ukrainian/Russian war.

Some have suggested U.S. oil producers increase their output, but they are struggling with a shortage of workers and necessary equipment at the moment. Hence, they are unlikely to meet that gap. In the past, Musk has taken strong anti-oil and gas stands even issuing a call for a “revolution” to counter “the propaganda of the fossil fuel industry which is unrelenting and enormous.”

Seeing Musk speak for this after introducing electrical and green vehicles while making use of solar power shows how desperate the situation has become.

Musk has also shown strong support for Ukraine tweeting “Hold Strong Ukraine” and even activating Starlink satellite service in the nation after a tweet from Mykhailo Fedorov, the Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, asked him to do so. His stance demanding that U.S. oil and gas producers increase their outputs could be another way of defending the nation.
