Biden Plan: Shut Down 80% of American Energy
Joe Biden’s assaults on American energy are coming in rapid-fire now. The latest this week is a “temporary” moratorium on drilling on federal lands. Many states like New Mexico are rich with energy resources underneath public lands. The unmitigated stupidity of this war on America’s fossil fuels is captured in the chart below which shows that 80% of our energy comes from oil, gas, and coal. Biden wants to go to zero.
And replace it with what? Bicycles? Less than 5% of our energy comes from wind and solar. Anyone who thinks we are going to power a $20 trillion industrial economy with windmills and solar panels is willfully ignorant. This is a frontal assault on American Prosperity and it must be stopped. Now.
Lockdowns Have Destroyed Four Times More Jobs than the Great Recession
A United Nations agency reports that four times as many jobs were erased last year due to panicked pandemic policies as were lost during the worst part of the 2009 global financial crisis.
“This has been the most severe crisis for the world of work since The Great Depression of the 1930s. Its impact is far greater than that of the global financial crisis of 2009,” said International Labor Director Guy Ryder.
A clear sign that lockdowns were the leading cause of job losses is that most people who lost work stopped looking for a job altogether, likely because of the closings of restaurants, bars, stores, hotels, salons, and other face-to-face services.
