In an appearance before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday, John Kerry, the U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, contradicted the Biden administration by admitting pipelines are a more efficient way of transporting fuel than train or truck.
Asked by Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, “Isn’t it true the pipelines are more carbon-delivery efficient than trains or trucks or other forms of delivery?” Kerry immediately replied, “Yeah, that is true,” adding, “I think that is true, but it doesn’t mean necessarily want to be adding another line when there are other alternatives. But is it better than train, is it better than that, yes, it is.”
On Biden’s first day in office, he revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, killing about 11,000 direct jobs that the pipeline’s construction was to have created, and an estimated 60,000 indirect jobs in secondary, related industries.
Currently, there is an ongoing fuel shortage throughout the East Coast from a cyberattack by hackers causing a pipeline operator to shut down Friday. The Biden administration did nothing to protect this attack on our infrastructure, declaring the hacking to be the pipeline company’s problem.
