Joe Biden lambasted American oil firms last month, blaming them in addition to Vladimir Putin for historically high gas prices.
Biden sent a letter to the leading corporations with an ultimatum.
“I have directed the Secretary of Energy to convene an emergency meeting on this topic,” Biden wrote, telling the firms he needed “concrete ideas” for resolving the situation and reasons for why refining capacity has been reduced during the previous two years.
“I understand that many factors contributed to the business decisions to reduce refinery capacity, which occurred before I took office,” he wrote. “But at a time of war, refinery profit margins well above normal being passed directly onto American families are not acceptable.”
Now, according to two individuals who talked with reporters from The Hill, the traitor Biden plans to declare a national climate emergency in order to get the Green New Deal through.
The Hill reports “One of the sources said that federal agencies are expecting an executive order declaring a climate emergency as soon as tomorrow, but it’s not entirely clear what it will entail.”

A second source also said the declaration could come on Wednesday. A third person confirmed that a climate emergency declaration was under consideration by the White House, as first reported by The Washington Post.
The White House announced Tuesday that Biden will travel on Wednesday to Somerset, Mass., to deliver remarks on tackling climate change.
A White House official declined to directly comment on whether Biden will pursue a climate emergency declaration, saying only that many options are under consideration.
“The President made clear that if the Senate doesn’t act to tackle the climate crisis and strengthen our domestic clean energy industry, he will. We are considering all options and no decision has been made,” the official wrote in an email.
Sen. Joe Manchin withdrew this week after months of discussions, putting an end to congressional attempts to address climate change. Clean energy was anticipated to play a central role in the potential climate legislation, which is part of Biden’s broader economic plan.

Biden said last week that he would take “strong executive action” as soon as Manchin announced that he wanted to move forward with a deal focused solely on healthcare.
During a press briefing Monday, White House Economic Adviser Jared Bernstein said Biden would move “aggressively to attack climate change.” CONTINUE READING…
