If we had more manufacturing here in the states would we use less fuel?

    Ultimately, if we had more manufacturing in the United States, we would use less fuel but it would be more of an unconscious by-product than anything. Rather than converting to renewable energies that don’t affect the planet as harshly, manufacturing locally will slow down the problem but at this point, we don’t have enough time to change the way we manufacture without changing the way we consume in the first place. Ultimately, if we manufactured here in the states, we would be exporting a lot of our products and that would use fuel so it would basically be shifting the burden around. We need to make sure that our decisions going forward are for the longevity and health of the planet.
