Skip to comments.White House: We Want to Keep Gas Prices Low, but ‘Climate Crisis Can’t Wait’
Posted on 10/07/2021 8:24:42 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
The White House indicated Wednesday that governments across the globe should not walk back green energy commitments despite growing fossil fuel shortages and price hikes.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked during the daily briefing if the White House is concerned that fuel shortages in Europe will impact green energy pledges ahead of the Glasgow Climate Change Summit in December.

These freaks are insane. Yeah, this will play well in most of America - NOT. Paying $5 a gallon routinely here in Kalifornia.
In sum, we will ignore the reality of dire energy supply and price shocks, and plow ahead with our ideological fantasies
Sounds like Czar Nicholas II.
Are we headed for price controls? Is that the Dem goal?
Very simple, America: DO NOT ELECT PATHOLOGICAL LIARS TO OFFICE AT ANY LEVEL.
Anybody who will lie to you will steal from you with impunity.
You can’t fix “Full Retard”
It wouldn’t surprise me. There is not a single lamebrain idea that these Democrats do not embrace.
Maybe when Biden’s approval rating is in the 10s and congress’s rating can be counted on a single hand, will democrats learn that, the American public ain’t buying their idiotic lies.
But, even at the lowest ratings possible, democrats won’t listen, since their agenda is more important than what people think.
We would be ahead by banning fossil fools, like Biden, Pelosi, Feinstein, Schumer, Leahy, etc.
There is no evidence that industrial wind power is likely to have a significant impact on carbon emissions. The European experience is instructive.
Denmark, the world's most wind-intensive nation, with more than 6,000 turbines generating 19% of its electricity, has yet to close a single fossil-fuel plant.
It requires 50% more coal-generated electricity to cover wind power's unpredictability, and pollution and carbon dioxide emissions have risen (by 36% in 2006 alone).
Flemming Nissen, the head of development at West Danish generating company ELSAM (one of Denmark's largest energy utilities) tells us that "wind turbines do not reduce carbon dioxide emissions."
The German experience is no different. Der Spiegel reports that "Germany's CO2 emissions haven't been reduced by even a single gram," and additional coal-and gas-fired plants have been constructed to ensure reliable delivery.
Indeed, recent academic research shows that wind power may actually increase greenhouse gas emissions in some cases, depending on the carbon-intensity of back-up generation required because of its intermittent character.
On the negative side of the environmental ledger are adverse impacts of industrial wind turbines on birdlife and other forms of wildlife, farm animals, wetlands and viewsheds.
Suck it up Greenies.
Remember when the wind stopped blowing over Texas and the resulting power failure.
Or 1970s gas lines. It seems to me that Dimms actually love dystopia because it keeps government in control as the “solution” - for problems they caused.
Global socialism on the move.
But I know better
Read a financial article this morning saying the economy can withstand an oil price of $130 and predicting that level is possible this winter.
Hey, it hit $147 under GW Bush so I guess it could happen again. I seem to remember regular gas peaked around $4.25 that time.
All of the “climate crisis” money gets pocketed and out right stolen by politicians. There was no accountability the last time for Democrat money needs. That is how gov Kitzhaber of Oregon ended up getting arrested for stealing taxpayer money.
My solar is making about 2/3rds of the power I've consumed. Money-wise it's a horrible investment -- it'll take many years for it to pay for itself and I make much more investing in equity funds. Nor is it a replacement for fossil fuels -- nothing is. But it gives me the peace of mind that at least a healthy portion of my energy costs are pre-paid and can't be messed up by Dims trying to make everybody repent from their cow farting sins.
The Dems destroy America and the GOP placates the Dems, we’re in big heap doo doo
Perhaps we could see another similar scenario to that…
Been seeing some ads touting building back greener by some ersatz BS contractor cabal. Who probably stands to get buhzillions in kick backs from uncle joe and his gangreen initiatives. What arrogant schmucks to believe that muvver erf gives two farts about humans.
Nobody is more bullish on oil than Joe Biden.
