As a historic winter storm threatens the Upper Midwest, keep in mind TEA’s common sense energy agenda and the need for America’s energy independence. As much of the Upper Midwest struggles with snow and ice and minus 9 degrees in Montana, the South is experiencing a heat wave with temperatures reaching a scorching 95 degrees in Texas.
With millions of Americans impacted by the extreme weather, this should serve as a stark reminder of what an all-electric future powered by unreliable renewable energy would look like. Frightening, to say the least. Factor in if a hurricane were bearing down on Florida’s coast and residents there lining up to charge their batteries as the grid fails.
Energy expert Jude Clemente again hits the nail on the head in this piece, pointing out, as the world’s main fuel, oil along with its sister fuel, natural gas, combine for 65% of the world’s energy.
President Biden’s war on domestic energy began with his first day in office. To see the total cost, read the full report here. Had Biden not taken office, the U.S. would be producing 2-3 million more barrels of oil, and 20-25 billion more cubic feet of natural gas per day. This would add up to an additional $100 billion in GDP per year.
- We have enough natural gas to power the nation for nearly a century.
- The natural gas industry supports over 4 million American jobs.
- Designating natural gas as green energy, like Ohio recently did, will make America a manufacturing powerhouse again.
Should Biden and the progressives have their way, unreliable heat and electricity would become the norm. Keep that in mind this weekend during the simultaneous winter storm and the southwest heat wave. They want to destroy American energy and replace it with foreign oil today and the unreliable Chinese produced “renewable” technologies tomorrow.
Their vision is that America would become dependent on wind, solar and batteries and, as a result, foreign governments. Biden’s Inflation
Reduction Runaway Act, with $370 billion in taxpayers’ money, is focused on replacing Clean, Affordable, Reliable natural gas with these unreliable, expensive green technologies.
This is a dangerous path to go down. But American voters and elected officials can alter this direction, and protect our energy independence.
Bottom Line: The green-at-any-cost movement is inherently elitist. They focus solely on climate change while ignoring the tangible issues of energy affordability, reliability, and security.
