You mean the fact they knew about it in September, and did nothing about it until May? Eight months late? That doesn't raise any red flags for you? Apparently, you don't know anyone who has that issue. Even Jessica Tarlov, a diehard dim, is critical of this and the issues it created.
The distilled oil products I've talked about several times before. pedojoe sold off our reserves knowing it was going to leave us short during the winter. Most of the oil knowingly went to china through pedojrs company. Things that are going to be severely impacted are especially distilled spirits; Heating oil, Diesel fuel (therefore, costs of all commodities will go up as their costs go up). This includes all food from meat to fresh fruit and vegetables, paper products, feed for livestock and fertilizer for crops (making their costs increase), other petroleum products (because of transportation costs). So basically, anything you don't grow or raise is going up. I've listed these things several times.
What could we have done? Not close off lands that had prior drilling on them. Companies now have to reapply for permits. That process takes about 5 years from application to drilling. And if the land is available, the land to the sites is not. It makes no sense to apply for something you can't get to. He also put almost a complete stop to LPG, one of the cleanest energy sources readily available at this time.

"By the time BHR sold its share in 2019, Mr. Biden controlled 10 percent of the firm through Skaneateles L.L.C., a company based in Washington. While Chinese corporate records show Skaneateles remains a part owner of BHR, Chris Clark, a lawyer for Mr. Biden, said that he “no longer holds any interest, directly or indirectly, in either BHR or Skaneateles.” The Chinese records show that Mr. Biden was no longer on BHR’s board as of April 2020. Mr. Biden did not respond to requests for comment."
