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
