From the very beginning of his presidency, Joe Biden has pushed for far-left environmental policies. He quickly signed an order banning leases on federal land for drilling oil and gas.
He has also thrown billions at “green” technology, prompting states and companies to do the same.
But Joe’s gamble on the “Green New Deal” has not worked out as he planned. Energy prices are sky high and few Americans are buying expensive EVs. He hasn’t stopped his agenda, though. And this latest move has outraged many.
From Fox News:
The White House is halting the permitting process for several proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal projects over their potential impacts on climate change, an unprecedented move environmentalists have demanded in recent months…
But proponents of additional LNG export facilities say the projects are vital to help meet energy demand in Europe and Asia as nations look to wean off Russian natural gas supplies. In the weeks following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in early 2022, Biden traveled to Europe and struck a deal with the European Union, vowing to send more U.S. LNG to the bloc.
In what some are calling a shock move, Biden has suspended permits for several liquefied natural gas export terminal projects. Environmentalist groups have been demanding these projects be stopped, claiming they would contribute to climate change.
The White House and the DOE—which is run by a self-proclaimed environmentalist—have put the demands of activists ahead of Biden’s prior commitments. These LNG projects were going to help our European allies in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Europe is struggling to keep the lights on, as most nations have been deprived of energy from Russia. Some countries are facing a major energy crisis. These LNG projects would have not only helped American businesses but provided much-needed energy to Europe.
Despite this, Biden has seemingly reneged on his commitments to our allies to appease a small but vocal minority of activists. Since the start of Biden’s administration, he seems to have put the whims of left-wing organizations ahead of what is best for the country, what is supported by science, and what is good for the economy.
- Biden has suspended permits for much-needed energy export projects, based on demands by radical environmental groups.
- Natural gas was going to provide critical energy in Europe, due to a lack of energy from Russia.
- Biden has long opposed pro-American energy policies, to appease far-left environmental extremists.
