Joe Biden is finally being exposed for his double-talking regarding energy leases.
Biden has more or less halted new leases for gas and oil.
Currently, the amount of land that is active on leases is a mere 0.19 acres.
That is less than any administration going back to the 1940s.
Makes No Sense
FOX Business’ David Asman stated, “You have to go back to Harry Truman in 1945 to find somebody that has provided fewer leasing than we have now… I mean, it’s extraordinary.
“Even President Obama had more… I mean, it’s pathetic.”
He continued, “Going in the complete opposite direction of where the president asks them to go.
“And meanwhile, of course, we’re continuing to do everything we can to get the Iranians to sign this nuke deal, which would provide us with all that Iranian oil.
“So they’re trying to flood the market with oil that’s produced elsewhere, even by our enemies, and stopping oil production in the United States. It makes no sense.”
Biden continues pushing the number of inactive leases, but that issue has been debunked many times.
Without new leases, we will continue to see domestic production dwindle, which is Biden’s end game.
He is trying to set himself up to boast about lower carbon production here in the United States while asking other countries to pick up the slack, which, as Asman stated, makes no sense.
Carbon production is carbon production, period. Whether the footprint comes from the United States or another country, it would still be just as harmful to the environment.
The only real difference is that we end up paying more for energy because we have to import it rather than produce it domestically.
So, once again, Joe Biden is trying to make Americans pay for his positive headlines.
