The Manufactured Energy Crisis

The Manufactured Energy Crisis

October 27, 2022

Joe Biden spent most of his campaign promising to take down the fossil fuel industry. And unfortunately, it is one campaign promise the President kept. 

In February 2020, the future president said the following. 

“We are going to get rid of fossil fuels…That’s okay. These guys are okay. They want to do the same thing I want to do. They want to phase out fossil fuels, and we’re going to phase out fossil fuels.”

On inauguration day, the president signed multiple executive orders targeting the American energy sector in the name of climate change. Those executive orders were the first domino to fall in President Biden’s plan to make the fossil fuel industry unpopular across America. 

Joseph Toomey is a career management consultant who wrote a paper published by Real Clear Energy on how the Biden Administration manufactured the current energy crisis. 

“For months, the administration peddled the now-patented “Putin Price Hike” line to excuse away inflation whose beginnings had their roots in the fiscal excess of Biden’s first year in office. Unable to make traction with evasion, the Biden Brain Trust tried to convince us that high gas prices were about the future of the liberal world order, and later that it was the fault of Republicans. Although gasoline prices have retreated from their recent highs, draining the emergency Strategic Petroleum Reserve only buys time and the forces pushing up the cost of energy remain in place, forces that had been summoned in answer to the voices that the president claims he heard.”

The true irony is that society has become accustomed to certain luxuries made possible by the oil and gas industry. The eco-left’s scare tactics and outlandish stunts are unacceptable and full of hypocrisy. Everything about our day-to-day lives has become more expensive, and this administration’s war on energy is to blame.
