You Might Want to Send This Chart to Your Congressperson by The Elephant's Child

To my astonishment, several of our representatives in Congress seem to be of the opinion that we should ban fossil fuels and the oil and gas industry and “keep fossil fuels in the ground where they belong.” Maybe you want to return to the 19th Century, and horse and buggy days, but I’m rather fond of 21st Century mobility and the modern way of life.

The first miracle drug, aspirin, appeared around the turn of the 19th Century. Henry Ford built his first car in 1893, Marconi invented radio telegraphy in 1894. In 1900 the American scientist R. A. Fessenden transmitted the human voice via radio waves, the first trial flight of the Zeppelin took place. In 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright flew at Kitty Hawk, and in Britain, Motor-car regulations set a 20 mile-per-hour speed limit. But enough reminiscing. Want to go back? That Ms. Ocasio-Cortez was not laughed out of Congress is testimony to our failure to learn a little history.

Do you have a link for source of that chart, or if you’re the source do you have a larger version anywhere?

You can enlarge it by right clicking and then “view image”. I copied it from a post several years go, and I’ve forgotten where I got it, but it was reliable source, probably the industry which can be trusted for this kind of information, even if AO-C thinks they are evil.
