Anything can be marketed. I see no reason why petrol would be any different. We already get some branding with companies like Shell advertising higher levels of detergents (TopTier). I'd think branding petrol as "conflict-free" and promoting the fact that it's 100% USA with $0 going to Saudis would be a selling point for many people.

Any multinational would have the burden of defending the provenance of its feedstock,along the entire,well-to-refinery chain of custody, in order to prove transparently,that it had no connection to not only conflict,but any aspect of the cost of the US military industrial complex,tasked with protecting international shipments,across international waters.

Why? He seems to be successful, with a wife that works with him, instead of fighting him (grumble, grumble).

Is he stepping on the toes of Big Galaxy?

Perhaps at a cost to billions.He not only steps on toes,he runs a stream roller over them.

He doesn't use children for propaganda, isn't calling for shutting down the economy because of the climate buggie man, isn't calling for violence, not name calling, not asking for money, not trying to spend other peoples money.
Compared to the climate cult he is nothing like them.
The only bad thing he appears to be doing is burning down the church of global warming with everyone inside.

This is off-topic but I don't know where else to put it. Via S0:

www.sciencedirect.com/: electrodynamic tethers with consideration of electric-magnetic-dynamic energy coupling
Quote:
This paper investigates spacecraft orbital boost maneuver by a fully insulated electrodynamic tether using a coupled multiphysics dynamic model that considers electric-magnetic-dynamic energy coupling. The current-potential characteristics of the electrodynamic tether is described by a simplified analytical model, where revised Parker-Murphy model is employed to evaluate electric current generation at plasma contactors together with libration dynamics of tether.
Of course, S0 expands this from low Earth orbit to interstellar travel. The magic of scale invariance.
