Science It Works

President Biden’s climate policy short on math, logic, common sense

President Biden may claim his climate policy is based on science, but it is short on math and logic. As an engineer who has spent his career in the energy industry, I agree that mankind is affecting the climate, and I’m glad the President is taking action to reduce the emissions that come from the consumption of fossil fuels. 

Unfortunately, under pressure from his progressive advisors, President Biden is attacking the production and transportation of petroleum rather than the consumption. That is dangerously backwards. Until other energy alternatives are built and available, America still needs oil and gas.  

Under his plan, the Department of Interior would ban fracking and eliminate oil and gas development on Federal lands, from which they claim come “more than 25{13aab5633489a05526ae1065595c074aeca3e93df6390063fabaebff206207ec} of US greenhouse gas emissions.”
