Michigan native and Breitbart editor Rebecca Mansour reported that Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s energy policies could kill 160,000 Michigan jobs and lead to rolling blackouts like the ones in California the last few years.
A 2017 study conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and commissioned by the American Petroleum Institute estimated that 159,100 Michigan jobs would be lost by transitioning away from fossil fuels. The auto and manufacturing industries would be decimated, Mansour said.
“The supply chain for energy in this country exists in all 50 states,” Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) told Breitbart. “Michigan is a major equipment and infrastructure state in support of the energy industry.”
Prices for energy would also see sharp increases, and supply could be limited during peak times and cause blackouts.
Having 100 percent renewable electricity generation by 2035 would lead to reliance on solar and wind energy, which are limited when weather conditions aren’t favorable.
