As President Biden travels to the COP26 Summit in Scotland to talk about environmental issues with other global leaders, I’ve been reflecting on America’s energy production, consumption, and carbon footprint.

It’s remarkable to think that during the Trump administration, America rose to worldwide energy dominance, not only becoming the global leader in oil and natural gas production, but becoming energy independent for the first time since the 1950s.

BIDEN REQUESTS G20 LEADERS TO INCREASE ENERGY PRODUCTION, OIL CRUNCH CONTINUES AND COAL SURGES

Wyoming played a significant role in this effort. As the country’s biggest net energy supplier, we have provided our neighboring states with the energy they need to thrive.

COVID-19 demonstrated how vital it was to have energy and other key resources here in America. Unfortunately, President Biden did not learn that lesson. President Biden canceled Keystone XL’s pipeline, and banned oil and gas drilling or leasing on federal lands.

He did this while approving the Russian Nord Stream II pipeline, which gives Russia greater influence over the European Union and the E.U.’s energy consumption.

COAL SHORTAGES TAKE UP PRICES; WEIGH ON THE ECONOMIES

This is not only shortsighted from a geopolitical perspective, it’s even bad from an environmental one. President Biden’s own Energy Secretary has called Russian gas “the dirtiest form of natural gas on Earth.”

Honestly, the more environmentally friendly solution would have been to ship U.S. natural gas to the E.U. Russian natural gas will be entering the E.U. in 2019. emitted 22 percent higher greenhouse gases than European coal. U.S.-produced natural gas, however, is delivered to the E.U. Produces up to 56 per cent less.

You should think about it! America’s clean energy production could benefit the U.S. energy sector and limit Russia’s influence over former satellite countries, all while reducing carbon emissions.

Instead, President Biden penalized North American oil production and increased Russia’s support for Vladimir Putin.

While President Biden chats with world leaders, Congress Democrats debate new ways to weaken our economy under the guise of their green agenda. Democrats’ reckless tax and spending proposal would not only drive our country further in debt and add fuel to the inflation fire already devastating America’s families, but it would cement huge parts of the unpopular Green New Deal as the law of the land.

REPUBLICANS TORCH DENIALS MCCARTHY ABOUT RISING ENERGY PRICES. ‘WE ARE THE SAUDI ARABIA of NATURAL GAS.

While we’re debating this in Washington, gas prices rose to over $7 a gallon in some places in the United States. The Biden administration bragged about Americans saving 16 cents on Fourth of July BBQs, but this year’s Thanksgiving dinner could be the most expensive in history. With winter coming, home energy costs are on the rise.

Instead of reacting to rising prices by undoing all his previous actions and encouraging increased domestic production, President Biden asked Middle Eastern oil producer to boost their output.

It is the most disappointing thing about this whole situation. If President Biden stopped to consider all facts, he might bring positive solutions for Scotland instead of continuing to hurt Americans.

America already reduces its carbon emissions. North America is going to become the global leader in renewable energy over the next decade or so, and since 2000 the United States has had the largest decline in emissions of any country.

Wyoming played an important role in this effort. Our wind power has more than doubled since 2009. The United States has the third-largest capacity for wind power generation. 

The traditional sources of energy, such as coal, oil, and natural gas are among the best-burning in the entire world. Our carbon footprint is decreasing by powering nations across the globe and our country.

Instead of trying to undermine our economy and allow our rivals to win, President Biden should instead focus on helping other nations catch up.

The Biden administration is currently on an extremely dangerous course. The result will be devastating for thousands of American workers and trillions in taxpayer money. Throughout the process, polluting countries such as Iran, Russia and China will not stop. 

I’m happy at any time to sit down with Democrats and talk about real solutions. But the discussion in Scotland, this administration’s actions, and their tax and spend plan, will only make things worse.
