I wouldn't be so sure.

I started out in a place of pure flippancy. But the US is now a net exporter of petroleum products. Red states are jumping all over wind and solar. Saudi Arabia probably hit peak oil in 2008 (they'll never tell) and MBS will cozy up to anyone who sucks his dick. Russia's using oil as a weapon against Europe, China is consuming a fuckton - there's a deep red argument for electric vehicles. And that's before Florida submerges itself, Arizona dries up and Texas manages to do both while also freezing and flooding.
