The Biden administration is looking into terminating a major Midwest pipeline, despite begging OPEC to ramp up oil production to offset domestic energy prices.
According to reports, Biden is looking into shutting down the Line 5 pipeline and collecting data to determine if shutting down the line will cause a further surge in fuel pricing.
The Line 5 pipeline is part of a network of pipelines that moves 540,000 barrels of petroleum products daily from Ontario, Canada to Escanaba, Michigan.
Following these reports, over a dozen Republican lawmakers penned a letter to Biden warning of the consequences of shuttering Line 5 just before winter hits.
“Every family in Michigan and throughout the Midwest should be deeply troubled by this new report that the Biden Administration is actively exploring shutting down Line 5,” wrote Michigan Rep. Tim Walberg.
“Halting operations of this energy pipeline would hurt our economy and cause home heating costs to rise even higher right as we enter the winter months.”
“This irresponsible action will hurt farmers, businesses, and families. President Biden has already done enough to weaken America’s energy security and international alliances, and the consequences of terminating Line 5 would only heighten these growing challenges,” he added.
This comes as Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm confirmed Sunday that Americans will be burdened with higher energy costs this year, blaming the higher costs on foreign energy producers.
“This is going to happen. It will be more expensive this year than last year,” Granholm confessed. “We are in a slightly beneficial position, certainly relative to Europe, because their chokehold of natural gas is significant. They’ll pay five times higher.”
“We have the same problem in fuels that the supply chains have, which is that the oil and gas companies are not flipping the switch as quickly as the demand requires,” she added.
Of course, higher energy prices and the gradual deindustrialization of the U.S. is part of the Biden team’s plan.
Last week, on the heels of the globalist COP26 climate summit, Biden’s “climate czar” John Kerry released a blueprint called Long-term Strategy of the United States: Pathways to Net-Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2050, that outlines the administration’s strategy for phasing out fossil fuels in America.
And remember, Biden totally shut down the Keystone XL pipeline on the first day of his puppet presidency.
This is the Great Reset.
