Many people aren’t happy about how Joe Biden is dealing with oil and gas prices.
Doug Burgum just happens to have a bit more of a podium than most of us, on account of being the Republican Governor of North Dakota.
From Burgum’s perspective, Joe Biden really isn’t handling this situation correctly from any angle. Economically, gas prices are soaring. Environmentally, Bergum argued, Biden’s doing even worse.
“If you care about the environment, you should want to have every barrel of oil produced in the United States versus elsewhere. And the idea that we’re talking to authoritarian regimes like Venezuela and Iran to try to increase production, and that same administration has not and is not talking to American oil executives, it’s absolutely absurd. And it’s like this administration does not understand that energy policy and U.S. national security are completely intertwined and cannot be separated.”
“I’m not sure if they’re aware or not,” Bergum concluded. “But it seems they’re hostage to the far left environmentalists that have some kind of fantasy idea that shutting down energy production in the U.S. is good for the global environment. It’s not when every barrel of oil is produced more cleanly here.”
