Afternoon TEA: Selling Our Energy Independence To China ??
Did you know?
In the first two months of 2021, China’s natural gas output was 13.5% over the previous year. That’s on top of over 10 percent annual growth in natural gas production in the country over the last two years. This growth comes as a result of China’s calculated investments in domestic production in order to cut dependence on imported energy.
As China invests in its own energy independence, the Biden administration’s short-sighted, pandering policies are sending the United States in the exact opposite direction. With moves like cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline, blocking federal oil and gas permits and incremental steps toward a fracking ban, Biden squanders our hard-earned energy independence and access to affordable, reliable energy like domestic natural gas when we need it most.
In fact, Biden’s extreme energy agenda not only puts the United States in a weakened position on the global stage it also directly benefits China. Biden’s “green” energy push to wind and solar power and electric vehicles all depends on key ingredients called rare earth metals. No surprise, these minerals are almost entirely mined in China.
We can’t afford to lose our energy independence and stake our American energy future dependent on corrupt regimes like China. To learn more about the importance of domestic resources like American natural gas, check out The Empowerment Alliance.
