One of the first things the Biden administration did when it came into the White House was shut down the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline under the excuse that such a method of transporting oil and fuel came with a whole host of problems for the environment.
Many, including this site, argued that this was incredibly backward thinking with severely flawed logic, noting that it’s far more damaging to the environment to send trucks down roadways, putting more carbon into the air, and even sometimes crashing and spilling that oil. Regardless, the bill was signed and the construction was stopped, killing off thousands and thousands of jobs.
Now, according to President Joe Biden’s own “climate czar” John Kerry, we’re being told that pipelines are the better way to transport oil.
The admission came on Wednesday during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing when Republican California Rep. Darrell Issa asked Kerry a very direct question about pipeline transportation.
“Isn’t it true the pipelines are more carbon-delivery efficient than trains or trucks or other forms of delivery? If you could answer just that limited question,” asked Issa.
“Yeah, that is true,” Kerry said. “I, I think that is true, but it doesn’t mean necessarily you want to be adding another line when there are other alternatives.”
“But is it better than train, and better than that, yes it is,” he added.
That pipelines were better for the environment was already documented even before the Biden administration killed the pipeline’s construction, but getting this admission from the Biden administration itself cements two things. One, that the Biden administration went against the science, and two, that they knew they were going against the science and didn’t care.
This puts the thousands of jobs killed by the Biden administration into a much darker perspective, knowing that it killed these jobs under false pretenses. It’s made even worse by the fact that the Biden administration would say little to nothing about it with Biden himself literally walking away in silence when asked about the sacrifices he forced Americans to make with the cancelation of the pipeline.
