In case you didn't realize it, our world currently has energy crisis. Not because there is anything wrong with the world. No, this is purely a man-made problem.
The reality is, climate change sounds good, and a lot of people can make a lot of money off of it. And that's what going 'green' is really all about.
At the end of the day, we still need to live off of gas and oil, and the truth is, it's perfectly fine.
As has been written in this space before, there is enough oil in the state of Texas to supply the needs of the entire world. Unfortunately, hours after being sworn in, Joe Biden shut it down, and now as a result we have the highest gas prices here in the U.S. in 7 years! While we cower, and beg OPEC for more oil.
"That's embarrassing, that is poor public policy, and poor decision making" said David Holt, president of Consumer Energy Alliance, "These are elected officials who continue to say the only way to meet our environmental needs is to ban oil and natural gas. That is a fallacy, a myth, a unicorn."
He's right. But this is not about what's right. Global leaders will gather later this month for a big 'climate change summit' to discuss what has become a 'green' revolution. It's a great sales pitch, and it all sounds really nice. The bottom line is, renewable energy is not reliable.
Countries around the world are struggling. Case in point, Europe tried to go green, and it's been disaster. Now, they're paying record highs for gas and oil from Russia.
"We need to look at the lessons that are happening in real time today in Europe, and not repeat those lessons" Holt told KTRH, "On the current trajectory, based on the current narrative coming out of Washington, that's exactly where we're headed. This is all predictable."
So what does that mean for here in Texas? Especially after the winter storm? "As we prepare for winter, we expect energy prices to go up" Holt said, "We don't want to have blackouts, it's an unfortunate situation, and in 21st century America it's not something that any voter in this country should stand for."
