Governor Mike Dunleavy, like the rest of America, cannot wrap his head around what Joe Biden was thinking when he decided to suspend oil and gas leases with America already facing incredible highs for petrol.
Dunleavy didn’t sugarcoat his diagnosis of the situation – or of Biden: Illogical and irrational.
“No surprise,” he said of the decision. “But it doesn’t — it’s illogical. It’s irrational. It doesn’t make any sense. The whole idea that you’re going to stop climate change by shutting down leases in the Arctic in Alaska. It’s just going to push this opportunity overseas. And that’s what this — I’m being serious, Neil. That’s what this administration seems to be all about is canceling opportunity, canceling oil leases in the Arctic, canceling offshore oil leases.”
One would have to assume that Biden cancelled the leases in order to ensure the environmentalists’ vote next election. But this brings up one glaring flaw in his plan. By using less of our own oil, we’re dependent on the Middle East. If the environmentalists don’t think American drillers care about the earth, wait until they see how much the Middle Eastern oil barons care about ducks and trees.
Hint: it’s not much. Maybe even less than the amount of logic left in Joe Biden.
