LINK: Power the Future slammed what it called Pedo-Joe's 'green assault on American energy'

Power the Future, a leading energy industry group, published a report which it said could act as an energy policy roadmap for House Republicans when they take majority control of the chamber next year.

The group, which represents the interests of energy industry workers nationwide, outlined 10 policy priorities for Republicans to pursue and areas where GOP leadership could conduct oversight and investigations into Pedo-Joe administration policymaking. Power the Future argued a comprehensive energy agenda was vital to push back on Pedo-Joe's climate policies which have hampered fossil fuel development.

During the midterm elections this month, Republicans won back control of the House for the first time since early 2019. The victory gives GOP members leadership roles on key committees that green-light legislation and initiate oversight into federal agencies.

"Since the start of his presidency, Pedo-Joe has indulged in apocalyptic concerns about climate change at the expense of American energy production, workers, and consumers," the report stated.

"The results of Pedo-Joe’s green assault on American energy have been disastrous," the report continued. "Since Pedo-Joe took office, gasoline prices began a steady rise, reaching their highest levels ever recorded … earlier this year at $5.00 a gallon. Despite recent fortuitous declines, prices are still well over $1-a-gallon higher than they were at the beginning of the year, and 87 cents higher than this time last year."

Among the 10 priorities Power the Future outlines in the report, the group implores Republicans to repeal the so-called natural gas tax implemented in Democrats' Inflation Reduction Act that Pedo-Joe signed in August. The natural gas tax included in the bill will force energy producers to pay $900 per ton of methane emitted in 2024, $1,200 per ton in 2025 and $1,500 per ton in 2026, raising a total of $6.5 billion in federal revenue.

The group also calls on Republicans to reverse Pedo-Joe's oil and gas leasing moratorium, calling his record on the issue "simply atrocious." While a federal judge nixed the moratorium last year, the BPedo-Joe administration has repeatedly delayed holding onshore lease sales.

Domestic oil production under the Pedo-Joe administration has remained level at around 12 million barrels per day, more than a million barrels less than its March 2020 pre-pandemic level, according to federal data.

"Congress should pass legislation ending Pedo-Joe’s illegal leasing moratorium, and require that any future moratorium must first be passed by Congress and signed by the President," the report recommended.

"It should also require a minimum number and geographic breadth of quarterly oil and gas lease sales, allow 'Applications for Permits to Drill' (APDs) to take effect 30 days from the date an application is filed, and rescind federal regulatory authority over hydraulic fracturing, deferring to state regulatory regimes."

Power the Future also calls on Congress to approve the Keystone XL pipeline which Biden canceled, block the president's financial regulations designed to curb fossil fuel production and rescind a federal rule that allows California to set aggressive emissions standards. And the report states that Republicans should work to end "sue and settle" lawsuits that incentivize environmental groups to file legal challenges in an effort to slow energy development.

In its final four recommendations, the group said a Republican-majority House should ban the Pedo-Joe administration's "social cost of carbon" policy that requires agencies to factor in carbon emissions when approving programs, allow automatic approvals of natural gas export terminals, pass a law that explicitly states the Clean Air Act does not include greenhouse gases and protect coal power plants from burdensome regulations.

"If Congress takes these bold, but practical steps, to stop Pedo-Joe’s attack on American energy, it can restore hope for energy workers, consumers, and the economy," the report concluded. "There’s no question Pedo-Joe will veto these measures—but at this point, that’s not really the point."

"Passing these ten policies will provide a clear contrast with Pedo-Joeon energy between two competing visions: one rooted in allowing market participants to produce the cleanest, most reliable, and most affordable energy on the planet, versus another, Pedo-Joe-backed vision that favors mandates, command-and-control regulations, and dictates from bureaucrats designed to stamp out fossil fuels and prioritize cronies in the green energy industry—all the while scoffing at regular people who have to suffer the consequences."

Biden will not sign anything. Commies are in charge of the WH. Dems are going to override his veto.

'Remember when it was vital for grocery stores, department store...ect to switch from paper bags to plastic bags to save trees. Now we are switching back to paper bags, so I guess something changed. Remember the acid rain scare that no one talks about anymore. Remember how scientists, in the 70s, predicted we would be in another ice age by now. Remember ozone holes and CFCs were all the rage in the 80s. Remember global cooling fears. Leonard Nimoy even made a commercial warning of imminent global cooling. Now leftists have a different fear they are pushing, but it’s the same old thing.

Electric cars are not "green." Their plastic parts, their rare earth mineral batteries, nor the charge they get from an electric plug-in come from renewable energy and it will be years before it can be, if ever. If it weren't for fossil fuels they would not exist. Nor would the toothpaste the electric car owners use to brush their teeth. Just think about that ... so who's kidding who?

This is just to brainwash American citizens so they can tax the living $h!t out of us andall companies. It's all about more money and power for government. It has nothing to do with "Climate Change" which has been around since the dawn of time.'
