Biden admits to forcing Green New Deal with gas prices

Conservative TreehouseDuring a joint press conference held in Tokyo, Japan, held by Joe Biden and Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Biden was asked about the financial pain Americans are feeling with massive increases in gasoline prices.

Outlining how his energy policy is directly related to the gasoline price, Joe Biden said: “Here’s the situation. And when it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.” Yet again proving the intent of the administration is to implement the ‘Green New Deal’ through executive action.

The truth is what Biden thinks he is forcing by raising gas prices is flatly impossible.

Solar and wind energy simply cannot replace natural gas and gasoline. We cannot make enough solar panels (and remember they need energy to make); we cannot make enough batteries; we cannot store enough energy to last even an hour much less overnight or on cloudy days; we cannot do any of it fast enough.

If we expanded our horizons to include nuclear, geothermal, hydroelectric, possibly ocean wave energy, then it might be a solvable problem given decades to build the new plants. Note that solar and wind are not in the list because they are simply not viable. (Hint: The useful life of a solar panel is about 20-30 years and then you have to build a new one; windmills are worse). And we would still be using gasoline for most of our vehicular traffic because batteries do not have sufficient energy density for anything beyond commuting.

Politicians think they can do this because politicians do not understand physics and more importantly they do not understand limits. Hard, physical limits that make what they want to do impossible. For decades of personal experience, our politicians have been fawned over by sycophants and learned that all they need do is pass a law and spend our seemingly infinite supply of money.

Well, money can't buy the impossible and very soon now someone is going to have to tell them there is no money left.
