The statements made by the Biden administration and Congressional Democrats about the fossil fuel industry’s dim future created the energy crisis plaguing the nation. Policies implemented that damage the industry reinforce and exacerbate the issue. Proposed corporate and government ESG mandates are the cherry on top. As Gary Stone of Five States Energy explains, America has the energy to be independent and prosperous. The only thing holding its production back is alarmist climate rhetoric and policies adopted to end fossil fuel use in the name of fighting climate change and establishment of a new world order.
