.@JoeBiden’s energy plan calls for outlawing reliable fossil fuel electricity mandating unreliable solar and wind electricity. This will not stop CO2 emissions from rising but it will destroy American industry, impoverish American consumers, and jeopardize American security.
Energy schemes around the world based on “unreliables”—solar and wind—have been driving up electricity costs, harming economies, destroying domestic industries, and harming consumers. Germans pay 3X US electricity prices to get just 1/3 of their electricity from solar and wind.
Instead of learning from the failures of unreliable energy schemes, the @JoeBiden Plan seeks to do far worse by outlawing reliable fossil fuel electricity and forcing Americans to pay over $4 trillion--$15,000 a household--for a solar and wind-based grid that can’t possibly work.
Joe Biden says that forcing Americans to rely on unreliable solar and wind will create jobs. But making electricity unreliable and unaffordable doesn’t create jobs, it destroys them. Just ask the UK aluminum industry, which “green energy” schemes are driving out of business.
Joe Biden says that forcing Americans to rely on unreliable solar and wind will help middle-class Americans. But the cost of energy affects the cost of everything. Skyrocketing energy costs will drive skyrocketing food, housing, healthcare, and transportation costs.
America is already too reliant on unreliable solar and wind. That’s why utilities are already blacking out many of their industrial customers. And grids in TX and the Northeast are warning of blackouts for all if policies don’t change. @JoeBiden’s Plan will guarantee blackouts.
.@JoeBiden’s support of a ban on fracking, which is required to produce over 60% of American oil and 75% of American natural gas, would destroy millions of jobs and once again make us dangerously dependent on the Middle East and Russia. This is the last thing we need.
@JoeBiden’s plan to force Americans to use unreliable solar and wind won’t stop global CO2 levels from rising, because China and others won’t be stupid enough to follow suit. The only thing it will bring about is an economic and security crisis in America.
If @JoeBiden and other Democrats want to lower global CO2 emissions, they should stop demonizing and criminalizing reliable, non-carbon nuclear energy and lower-carbon natural gas. Instead, the Biden Plan continues the overregulation of nuclear and supports banning natural gas.
Typo in first tweet :-(. Should be ".@JoeBiden’s energy plan calls for outlawing reliable fossil fuel electricity AND mandating unreliable solar and wind electricity." I wish Biden's whole plan turned out to be a typo.
