In response to Greta Thunberg’s yelling, Biden revised our entire energy policy.
Former White House press secretary Dana Perino slammed President Biden’s energy policy move on Wednesday, blaming it on left-wing climate change panic fueled by Greta Thunberg.
60 Million Barrels
On “The Five” on Fox News, Perino stated, “We altered our entire energy strategy because Greta Thunberg shouted at us.”
“Infuriating” was how the co-host described the White House’s decision to unleash 60 million barrels of oil from strategic reserves.

“I think it’s an appalling policy choice by the White House,” Perino remarked. “Because when you’re at home, you’re starting to think, ‘60 million barrels?’ That’s absurd.
“What the president could have done last night was launch ‘Operation Warp Speed’ to encourage innovation in renewable energy production,” Perino said.
“We are likely to have to dramatically increase our conventional fossil fuels over the next several years so we can safeguard our national security, but rest assured, we are working on going to greener energy.”
Perino noted Greta Thunberg yelled at us, so we modified our entire energy policy.
Don’t tell me this is a free country. We have a one-party state- two cheeks of the same arse. Ruthlessly manipulated by big-tech. We are lock-step with the EU we thought we’d left. Our energy policy is written by a schoolgirl. We can’t speak freely. Can’t listen as we please.

Greta Thunberg’s Speech
In 2019, Thunberg chastised global leaders at a UN climate summit for not following her extreme climate change policy suggestions.
“We’ll be watching you,” the teen said. “This is a mess. Why am I up here? I ought to be back in school across the ocean, but you all come to us for hope. You dare!”
“Your meaningless words have taken away my hopes and my childhood,” scowled Thunberg.
“Yet I’m one of the fortunate. People suffer. People die. Ecosystems are crumbling. During a mass extinction, all you can talk about is money and endless economic expansion. How dare you!”
Interestingly, President Biden stopped new oil and gas leases permanently, as domestic gas prices hit a seven-year high.
“As Russia presses on Ukraine’s capital, oil prices rose Tuesday, with US crude reaching its highest level since June 2014,” CNBC News reported hours before Biden’s speech.
“WTI crude futures, the US oil benchmark, rose 11.5 percent to $106.78 a barrel. The contract slipped off that level in the afternoon and closed at $103.41, up 8.03 percent.”
“Brent crude reached a new high of $107.57, last recorded in July 2014. The contract closed at $104.97 per barrel, up 7.15 percent,” the article said.
Due to a federal court order preventing the administration from utilizing its high “social cost of carbon” assessment, the Biden government announced this week new oil and gas production on federal land would be delayed forever.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the United States purchased 672,000 barrels of Russian oil per day last year.
Last year, Russia supplied around 8% of US oil and refined product imports, or about 672,000 barrels per day, according to Andy Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates LLC in Houston.
Russia supplies around 3% of the nation’s oil imports or about 200,000 barrels per day.
