Sleepy Joe Biden Pledges American Tax Dollars in Scotland

November 2, 2021

President Biden and U.S. officials hopped on multiple jets to Europe this week for international climate talks that will deepen the energy crisis. In an opening address that went nine minutes over the allotted time, Biden proudly announced a climate action plan that will cost American taxpayers a staggering $555 Billion and likely more in the form of higher prices at the pump. Biden’s message at the Scottish summit is inconsistent with what he said just a day earlier in Rome when he urged OPEC (an oil-production cartel that includes geopolitical adversaries like Russia, Venezuela, and Iran) to produce more oil. Here is more from the New York Post:

Biden said the idea that there’s an alternative to cars is “just not realistic” before putting blame on other nations for not producing enough oil to lower prices — despite the fact that he canceled a number of domestic pipeline and oil-drilling projects.

“I do think that the idea that Russia and Saudi Arabia and other major producers are not going to pump more oil so people can have gasoline to get to and from work, for example, is — is — is not — is not right,” Biden said. As the president and U.S. officials arrive in Scotland to discuss the climate crisis with fellow nations, Biden has come under scrutiny over another seemingly ironic situation amid his push to lower fossil fuels.

Biden must be dreaming about an unrealistic future for energy in the U.S., since he appeared to fall asleep when other countries were delivering their remarks at the summit. In the interest of national security and affordable prices for consumers, our energy policy must be based on reality and not politics.
