In the past several weeks Saudi Arabia purposefully shrunk its oil production from 8,165 barrels per day to 7,523. This immediately gave an opportunity to Russia to increase its oil production, providing enormous support to Putin’s regime.
Question: what will help Russia more, if the US increases its oil output or cuts it down dramatically? Everybody seems suddenly very preoccupied with Russia and Putin, so I want to see how people manage simultaneously to contain in their brains “helping Putin is the worstest” and “the New Green Deal is the bestest.” It’s got to be one or the other. It simply doesn’t work otherwise.
