Everyone knows how much of a disaster Biden’s administration is. Nothing in America is better with Biden now in the White House instead of Trump.
And now Joe Biden’s been caught in a traitorous act selling out every American.
One of the hills that the Biden administration and the Democrats are willing to die on is fighting so-called “climate change.”
Climate change alarmists have a long history of being simply wrong in almost all of their predictions, and it’s only gotten worse.
Many within the Democrat Party believe we have like twelve years to live before mother nature just goes scorched earth and burns up all the crops and starves humanity.
This is mainstream for the Democrats.
That’s why the Biden administration has halted projects to drill for oil in Alaska and elsewhere which would help America’s energy independence.
Democrats want everyone to live off of the energy from solar panels and wind turbines, even though it’s entirely unsustainable.
A result of this decision has been that we’ve seen energy crises pop up in highly populated areas in America, like parts of California.
And the energy war is only just beginning.
Recently, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) announced that they would be reducing oil production by 1 million barrels a day.
Of course, this is disastrous for Biden and the Democrats who refuse to focus on American energy independence through our means and has been draining our oil reserves. So the White House appealed to OPEC.
But OPEC refused the Biden administration and announced that they would be reducing oil production by 2 million barrels a day now.
After previewing its plans to cut production by one million barrels of oil per day, the White House claimed it was engaged in a “last-ditch effort” to talk OPEC+ down from its proposal as gas prices in the United States had already reversed a dip to move upward in the last two weeks.
On Wednesday, OPEC+ announced that, despite Biden’s begging, they were in fact going to cut oil production. But instead of just reducing output by one million barrels per day, they announced that they would reduce production by *two* million barrels per day.
In response to this, the Biden administration has announced that it would be draining the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserves (SPR) by another 10 million barrels.
To make matters worse, in early September, it was reported that the SPR is at its lowest levels since Reagan replenished them from the Carter years.
This move from the Biden admin is obviously a political one to keep gas prices from soaring back up to $5 or more per gallon as it was just earlier this year.
Instead of taking the blame for this mess, the Biden administration pointed the finger at oil and gas companies saying they need to sacrifice their profit margins in the short term to help keep gas prices from rising.
The U.S. should be focusing on domestic oil and gas generation to maintain American energy independency and turn to nuclear energy for the future of our energy production.
But the Democrats say nuclear energy is too expensive and scary for their tastes. Even though they will spend a trillion dollars on the Inflation Reduction Act, which will do nothing to reduce inflation in the long term.
