Renewables and electric vehicles might be the future, but we won’t be there for decades. Still need fossil fuels until then.

That argument kinda falls flat when you are talking about new oil drilling, and for not even that big of a resevoir, that will have devastating ecological impacts.

Maybe, but the fuel we need for the next few decades have to come from somewhere.

Ya, renewables.

We aren't decades off interma of capability, we are there now, and it can be all build in under a decade.

And again, your argument fals completely flat because you are talking about new drilling.

We are decades away from only having electric cars on the road, new drilling will be needed to sustain those vehicles in the future. Especially with electric vehicle prices. I personally was wanting to get a F150 Lightning, but it went from 40k to 60k for the base truck. Prices like that keep buyers like me out of the market.
