Whoever is currently directing the energy policy for the Biden administration has little of no regard for the common man. Gasoline prices have more than doubled since President Biden took office, and heating costs for the average American are expected to go through the roof this winter. Meanwhile, the Biden administration continues its war on fossil fuel.
On Thursday, The American Thinker posted an article about the Biden administration’s energy policies and their consequences.
The article reports:
On October 19, in the heat of an election campaign, President Biden told the American people, “We need to increase oil production.” He went on to say, “My administration has not stopped or slowed U.S. oil production.” It was a disingenuous statement from a man whose sense of reality, fact, and fiction have become an undecipherable narrative. Biden failed to mention the executive order he issued which stipulates, “the Secretary of the Interior shall pause new oil and natural gas leases on public lands or in offshore waters.” This pause is ongoing. Biden uses the same executive order as an instruction to the secretaries of State, Treasury, Energy, Defense, and Homeland Security, “to organize and deploy the full capacity of its agencies to combat the climate crisis.”
Millions of Americans are employed by businesses supporting the fossil-fuel industry. Others choose to invest in fossil-fuel businesses. All Americans rely on fossil fuels to power their businesses, transportation systems, and utilities. Democrats will destroy these people’s jobs, capital, and imperil the U.S. economy. The Biden administration decreed that, “we must combat the climate crisis with bold, progressive action that combines the full capacity of the Federal Government with efforts from every corner of our Nation, every level of government, and every sector of our economy.” By executive order Biden has weaponized the federal bureaucracy to destroy the fossil-fuel industry.
Please follow the link to read the entire article. The world’s economy depends on fossil fuel, and to destroy the fossil fuel industry is to take down that economy. One of the ways America could rebound from the rapidly increasing inflation would be to begin drilling our way back to energy independence. As soon as gasoline prices began to drop, the cost of goods would begin to drop and the domino effect would begin. I don’t know if there will be enough people in the newly elected Congress to bring back American energy, but that is the ultimate solution to a lot of America’s problems and would also have a positive impact on America foreign policy.
