From Town hall:

John Kerry, who is the U.S. special presidential envoy for climate, stated at a recent event at the University of Southern California that the country does not need to put more effort into drilling for oil and gas as energy costs continue to rise.

The most obvious sign of the increase in energy costs has been at gas stations, where the national average now stands at $5.01 per gallon, but utility bills are also expected to increase this summer. Republicans in Congress have called for more domestic production to increase the supply of oil in order to reduce the cost.

“And energy security worry is driving a lot of the thoughts now about, ‘Oh, we need more drilling, we need more drilling of this, we need to go back to coal.’ No, we don’t. We absolutely don’t. And we have to prevent a false narrative from entering into this or, again, pun intended, we are cooked,” Kerry said.

The problem of course is that John Kerry believes his own hype. The larger problem is that the Biden administration believes the idiot when he says these things. And if you think convincing the Biden administration of absolute garbage is a difficult thing to do, consider the spectacle of Hunter Biden bragging in a recorded peace that Joe Biden will do anything he says.

Joe Biden is pliable to just about anything he’s going to be told and since he surrounds himself with radical leftists, every radical leftist wet dream that comes along is crucial in his view. Think about it, why hasn’t Joe Biden fired any of his economic advisors?

The fact is we need to do a 180 on energy policy, but Biden is still listening to megamorons like John Kerry.
