(RightWing.org) – President Joe Biden hit the ground running, issuing a string of executive actions designed to reverse Donald Trump’s energy policy and promote the Green New Deal provisions. For instance, he issued an executive order canceling the construction and operation of the Keystone XL pipeline on his first day in office.
Daniel Turner, executive director of Power the Future, an energy industry watchdog, spoke with One America News Network host Jack Posobiec about Biden’s policies. According to him, Biden has taken America from a position of energy dominance to “punishing the energy” sector, resulting in rising costs and job losses.

Biden’s program also creates dependence on undesirable countries like Venezuela and Russia, heavily invested in oil and gas. Unsurprisingly, Turner claimed that companies like Burisma Holdings Unlimited, where Hunter Biden has ties, could reap the benefits of these policies.
Green energy sounds good on paper, but in reality, moving too quickly could result in the outcomes discussed by Turner. It could lead to a shift from US energy independence to global dependence on oil and gas from China, Iran, and Ukraine. That doesn’t sound like progress.
