We’ve seen the devastating effects green energy has had on the state of Texas this week. People are freezing to death in their homes, no access to food or water, frozen pipes are bursting and flooding people’s homes. President Biden wants to switch the U.S. from being a country that relies on oil and fossil fuels to green energy, like that proposed in the Green New Deal.
This is especially terrifying as liberals call on President Biden to cut off the Dakota Access Pipeline that transports oil across the country. If he follows the calls coming from his party, his callous decision will produce a multitude of unexpected consequences not related to oil.
One of those unexpected consequences will be on food prices. Mid-Western farmers will be hit HARD, driving up food prices across the country. Not to mention the crippling move will kill thousands of jobs as well, just like what happened when he shut down the Keystone Pipeline.
The Dakota pipeline funnels crude oil from Canadian fields to processing facilities in the U.S. Considered an essential infrastructure project, the free-flow of oil results in lower heating oil costs, inexpensive petroleum-based products, as well as cheap gas and diesel at the pumps.
Without the pipeline, gas and diesel prices could skyrocket back to the more than $4 per gallon people suffered under the Obama-Biden administration. Corn-belt farmers alone are expected to suffer more than $1 billion annually in increased production costs. The trucking industry will also be forced to charge more for transportation, and everyday consumers will have to pony up at the grocery store.
Arkansas Rep. Rick Crawford, who sits on the House Agriculture, confirmed the prognosis that Biden’s wrong-headed decision will hurt working families. In a telling move, House Democrats are pushing through increases to welfare as they prepare to make America poor again. Rep. Crawford’s candid disclosure on this video and the facts about the Biden administration are cause for alarm.
