Video: Energy Industry Heads Call Out Biden Admin’s Misinformation On Record High Prices

“We need some clarity just in the regulatory sense that this administration is behind domestic energy production.”

Energy industry heads have hit back at the Biden administration’s efforts to blame them for rising prices, noting that it is a ‘distraction’ from the reality that Executive actions are really to blame for supply chain issues.

Following Jen Psaki’s embarrassing attempts to deflect the energy crisis onto Russia and American oil companies who she claimed “need to drill more,” American Exploration & Production Council CEO Anne Bradbury urged “That accusation is a complete red herring.” 

She continued, “It’s really a distraction from the fact that this administration has paused leasing on federal lands, something that we’re concerned about and something that we think needs to continue right away.”

Speaking at the CERAWeek energy conference, Bradbury further noted that it takes a long time to explore and develop a federal lands lease, adding that the Biden administration is legally mandated to sell the leases.

“The fact is that industry is producing at a higher level on existing leases on federal lands than in the last 20 years and these leases take many years to explore, to develop and produce on,” Bradbury added.  

“The fact is that industry is producing at a higher level on existing leases on federal lands than in the last 20 years and these leases take many years to explore, to develop and produce on,” Bradbury emphasised.

Watch:

American Petroleum Institute (API) president and CEO Mike Sommers also noted that Psaki’s claims represent “a fundamental misunderstanding as to how this process works.”

“Once you lease land there is a whole process that you have to go through. First you have to actually discover whether actually there is oil and gas in that land. Second of all, you have to get a permit to actually develop that land,” he asserted.

“Right now we actually are developing more leases than we have in two decades so the White House certainly doesn’t have their facts straight on this,” he further responded.

Energy Workforce and Technology Council CEO Leslie Beyer also hit back at Psaki, noting that “some permits are viable and some are not.”

“The moratorium on leasing certainly adds an additional… block to American energy production, so that is the opposite of what we need to be doing right now,” she said, adding “We need to stop the rhetoric that’s anti-fossil fuel and we need some clarity just in the regulatory sense that this administration is behind domestic energy production.”

Meanwhile, Joe Biden twice said Tuesday that Russia is to blame for gas prices being at record highs, even calling it “Putin’s price hike” as he  announced a ban on all imports of Russian oil:

He also again claimed that it isn’t true that his own policies have affected the supply chain:

Biden repeated Psaki’s deflections from yesterday, claiming that “In the United States, 90 percent of onshore oil production takes place on land that isn’t owned by the federal government. And of the remaining 10 percent that occurs on federal land, the oil and gas industry has millions of acres leased. They have 9000 permits to drill now, they could be drilling right now, yesterday, last week, last year. They have 900 to drill onshore that are already approved.”

“So let me be clear, let me be clear, they are not using them for production. Now, that’s their decision. These are the facts. We should be honest about the facts,” he added, again blaming oil companies.

In reality, oil companies are ramping up production in Texas and New Mexico.

Practically everything is to blame for the price hike, except Biden’s own policies of course:

    Video: Biden Admits Sky Rocketing Energy Prices Are Part Of Green “Transition”

    “We’re going through an incredible transition”

    Joe Biden let the veil slip Monday, telling reporters gathered at a press conference in Tokyo that unaffordable gas prices in the U.S. are part of a deliberate “transition” to green energy.

    Suddenly, Vladimir Putin isn’t to blame anymore as a reporter asked if a U.S. recession is unavoidable.

    Struggling to speak coherently, Biden said “When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that God willing when it’s over we’ll be stronger.”

    “The world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden added.

    Biden also claimed he attempted to combat soaring prices by releasing 180 million barrels of oil from emergency stockpiles in late March, but admitted that it hasn’t had any effect.

    Watch:

    The average price of a gallon of gas has hit $4.59 nationwide, up from $4.11 in April, according to AAA.

    In places like Los Angeles it’s hitting high above $7:

    They have a strategy though right?

    “Great question”:

    Top Putin Aide Predicts “Global Famine” by the End of This Year

    Humanitarian disaster looming.

    A top aide to Vladimir Putin has predicted a “global famine” that will occur before the end of the year as a result of worldwide grain shortages caused by the war in Ukraine.

    Maksim Oreshkin asserts that the United States’ attempt to takeover Ukraine’s grain reserves is going to lead to a humanitarian disaster.

    “It is important that in the conditions, for example, of a global famine that will occur closer to autumn, by the end of this year all over the world, Russia should not suffer, but be fully provided with food,” Oreshkin said.

    Oreshkin blamed inflation caused by the Federal Reserve overprinting the dollar since 2020 as one of the causes, but also zeroed in on the Biden’s administration’s more recent actions in Ukraine.

    “In fact, what America is trying to do with Ukraine now is to take out the grain reserves that Ukraine currently has in its possession – just another action that dooms Ukraine to serious humanitarian problems, but also dooms the global community to having big problems with hunger,” he warned.

    Russia and Ukraine account for almost a third of the world’s wheat exports, with sanctions on Russia and the war in Ukraine having led to a 60 per cent price surge so far this year.

    As we previously highlighted, Italian League party leader Matteo Salvini has warned that if the war in Ukraine is not brought to a conclusion by the end of this month, chronic food shortages will cause an immigration wave that will lead to 20 million African migrants trying to enter Europe.

    “Significant hunger is expected on the African continent, which will be a humanitarian, then a social, and finally an Italian problem,” said Salvini.

    “Without peace there will be famine in the autumn and 20 million Africans will be ready to go,” he added.

    British TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson, who owns a farm which was the basis for his hit Amazon Prime show Clarkson’s Farm, warned in a Sunday Times piece that farmers in the UK are letting their fields go fallow.

    “The problem is that next year many farmers will decide that, because of the costs involved, they’ll use less fertiliser,” he wrote. “Some will doubtless try to use none at all. Others will try to use cardboard or lawn clippings or faeces instead. Either way they will produce less food. Some farmers — I know of three in my area alone — have already decided to fallow their fields next year and grow nothing at all.”

    “And this is not just happening in the UK. It’s a global phenomenon and it could well result in there being maybe 20 per cent less food in the shops than is necessary. That’s bad. And then it gets worse because, between them, Russia and Ukraine grow more than a quarter of global wheat exports.”

    Clarkson fears that the world is “hurtling down a well-watered slide into the pit of hunger, misery and death.”

    TV Presenter Warns Global Food Shortages Will Lead to Cannibalism

    And he only appeared to be half-joking.

    TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson said that global food shortages caused by the war in Ukraine could eventually lead to cannibalism, and he only appeared to be half-joking.

    The Grand Tour presenter, who owns a famous farm shop in the Cotswolds, made the comments in his latest Sunday Times piece.

    Clarkson said the situation caused by the war in Ukraine was leading him to suffer sleepless nights and “a few chin-scratching moments of despair.”

    The former Top Gear presenter, who also owns a farm which was the basis of his hit Amazon Prime series Clarkson’s Farm, says more and more farmers in the UK are allowing their fields to lie fallow due to soaring fertiliser costs.

    “The problem is that next year many farmers will decide that, because of the costs involved, they’ll use less fertiliser,” he wrote. “Some will doubtless try to use none at all. Others will try to use cardboard or lawn clippings or faeces instead. Either way they will produce less food. Some farmers — I know of three in my area alone — have already decided to fallow their fields next year and grow nothing at all.”

    “And this is not just happening in the UK. It’s a global phenomenon and it could well result in there being maybe 20 per cent less food in the shops than is necessary. That’s bad. And then it gets worse because, between them, Russia and Ukraine grow more than a quarter of global wheat exports.”

    Clarkson worries the world is “hurtling down a well-watered slide into the pit of hunger, misery and death.”

    He also slammed the government for failing to adequately respond to the cost of living crisis and cautioned that people can “live without heat or clothing or even sex,” but that “they cannot live without food.”

    “Hunger makes people eat their neighbours,” wrote Clarkson.

    Some food products, including sunflower oil, are already being rationed in the UK due to Ukraine being a major source for sunflower seeds.

    As we highlighted earlier, Italian League party leader Matteo Salvini warned that worsening food shortages could cause 20 million African migrants to flood Europe if a ceasefire in Ukraine is not agreed by the end of this month.

    “Without peace there will be famine in the autumn and 20 million Africans will be ready to go,” he said.

    In his article, Clarkson pointed out that “nearly a third of the wheat Ukraine grows goes to Africa, and it won’t be getting any this summer,” warning that the existing migrant crisis will represent a “trickle” compared to the tsunami that could be around the corner.
