    "The Middle Eastern country’s goal is to export more crude oil than (they) consume and transition their population to renewable sources."

    I'm sorry, what? Are they trying to say that Saudi Arabia currently consumes more oil than they export?

    That's more than a little bit implausible. Saudi Arabia exports more than 7 million barrels of oil per day. The population of the country is 32 million. In order for them to be consuming more oil than they export, each man, woman, and child in the country would have to be using more than a barrel (55 gallons) of oil per week!

    Do they bathe in the shit, or what?

    The less oil they use at home, the more they have to sell, and the longer the reserves will last.

    Yeah, I get that part. I'm taking issue with the quote from the article, which states they currently consume more than they export.

    When I read one statement that's obvious bullshit, it makes me question the validity of the entire article. Doesn't anyone else's mind work that way?
