The Global Natural Gas Crisis is coming to North America
A sudden and unexpected event is about to take place: the global natural gas crisis, now gripping large swaths of the world, is about to engulf North America as well.

While Russia’s invasion has made the energy shortage much worse in the short term, the underlying problems have been building for many years and cannot be easily remedied.
Our biggest short-term problem is that we are now running out of spare oil pumping capacity.
