Dem Senator Claims This is GOP’s ‘Biggest Lie’

Office of Congressman Brad Schnieder / Public domain

Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), who is a co-sponsor of the Green New Deal, claimed despite any evidence that “green” energy is anywhere near as efficient as oil and gas, that Americans must invest in the experimental “alternative” sources of energy.

BPR News reports:

“Republicans and their oil-soaked cronies … want to feed the American people one of the biggest lies of all – that drilling for more oil and more gas is the path to energy independence,” he said during his speech.

“Republicans say that they have an all-of-the-above plan, but it’s really an oil-above-all plan. The GOP always has stood for the gas and oil party. And its argument of drilling equals energy independence is leakier than an old oil tanker.”

His remarks are being intensely bashed because, for one, they make little sense.

Critics have noted, for instance, that former President Donald Trump had achieved energy independence, only to have his policies rolled back by his successor, current President Joe Biden

Senator Ed Markey D-MA, and his new green deal, is dumber than Loe Biden! If that’s possible, us oil-soaked citizens know that all alternatives of energy are good for the country, but you don’t put all your eggs in one basket, you can’t run the industries on just solar, wind, geothermal, you need them all and if they want to stop the oil, we are in deep trouble! Try to make the suit shoes underwear he is wearing out of wind!

Cute rhetoric but transparently propagandistic and dumb as a democrat. I wonder if he’s ever seen a battery powered airplane. Or a battery powered ship. And what kind of fuels are used to charge the millions of tractors, trucks, buses, trains, tanks, and cars lined up at the various charging stations.

Everyone would like to enjoy silent, strong, efficient and cheap energy. But thus far, only the civilian passenger car has shown promise. Purchase price, charging time, range, and replacement cost have proven prohibitive. In other words, even the passenger car is available to the rich. Someone needs to tell Kerry, it’s a dream.

Markey, as one of the signers of the phony “green new deal” really doesn’t care about our country and should be put out to pasture. Wind and solar are so unreliable and environmentally destructive they will never represent more than 6% of our total energy needs. Until a stable, non fossil energy source becomes available we will rely on clean fossil energy. Consider the push toward electric vehicles. Where is the electricity going to come from?

What they don’t understand is that until we have a real and proven alternative, with the infrastructure in place to make it work, we need oil. I am good with everything going green, just don’t cut the people off from what we have in place before hand.

The biggest lie is Biden – NO unifying the nation only further division in race, vaccinated against the unvaccinated and demoralizing family values. Not to mention the corruption and selling our country out to China Not protecting our southern border welcoming gangs, drug and human trafficking to destroy us from within. If this is their build back better plan – NO THANKS
