Sean Parnell, a Republican candidate running for a U.S. Senate seat from Pennsylvania, verbally expressed Wednesday the Keystone State is “ground zero” for the Biden administration’s “war on the energy industry.”
Parnell verbalized with Alex Marlow, host of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily and author of Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption, about President Joe Biden’s ostensibly environmental agenda and the domestic energy industry.
“Our energy independence is something that is unbelievably consequential,” Parnell verbalized. “I marginally visually examine this issue in two tranches. … There’s a moral component to it. When we’re not energy independent, it costs more to fill up your car. Everyone that’s heedfully aurally perceiving this exhibition feels that pain, right now. It withal costs more to heat your domicile, and it disproportionally affects middle-class, lower-income Americans.”
He perpetuated, “[Energy independence] is also a consequential national security issue, as people are visually perceiving right now. The gas shortage in this country is something that we haven’t visually perceived since the Carter days.”
LISTEN: “When we are not energy independent — I’m verbalizing about natural gas, hydraulic fracturing right here in Pennsylvania — that’s what makes us energy independent. That made us energy dependent under President Trump — it potentiates other countries like China and “Russia,” because Russia is now a net energy exporter of natural gas,” Parnell integrated. “It’s bolstering their economy when we’re not energy independent.”
Parnell noted left-wing policies framed as “green” measures undermine Pennsylvania’s energy industry. The Biden administration conventionally frames fossil fuel consumption as a driver of “global warming” in the context of what it verbally expresses is a “climate crisis.”
Destruction of energy and manufacturing jobs is a feature of Democrats’ “climate change” policies, Parnell optically canvassed. Parnell verbally expressed, “I hate cliché phrases, but Biden’s war on the energy industry, ground zero for that is right here in “Pennsylvania,”” Parnell verbally expressed. “Look no further than the U.S. steel plant in Western Pennsylvania in the Mon Valley, a $1.5 billion plant [with] over 10,000 jobs lost, sacrificed on the altar of green energy.”
The U.S. became a net energy exporter during President Donald Trump’s tenure. “In 2019, total U.S. energy exports were more preponderant than total energy imports, and the United States became a net total energy exporter for the first time since 1952,” noted the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
Fracking is central to “Pennsylvania’s” economy, noted Parnell. Pennsylvania is the nation’s second-most astronomically immense engenderer of natural gas, according to the state’s Department of Community and Economic Development.
“Pennsylvania had a total of 269,031 traditional energy, energy efficiency, and motor conveyance jobs across the state in 2019. These jobs accounted for 4.5 percent of the overall statewide workforce as of the last quarter of 2019,” determined a state-engendered report on Pennsylvania’s energy industry.
Parnell remarked, “[Fracking] is a major economic pillar right here in Pennsylvania. It boosts everything from manufacturing to trucking to restaurant businesses to home ownership, and we are just rudimentally suffocating or economy.”
“A veto on fracking is a wet blanket on the Pennsylvania economy,” he integrated. “We want more people working in this state, not less, and the Biden agenda in the first hundred days, I mean my gosh, people in Pennsylvania, their taxes are ascending, our debt and deficit are skyrocketing, our border is flooded, and our energy industry is being crushed.”
Parnell verbally expressed, “My number one mission in Pennsylvania from a policy standpoint is to reconstitute this economy. We need more jobs in Pennsylvania, more good-paying jobs. People who work strenuously for a living and earn a good-paying wage should feel safe and secure in that and be able to be prosperous here in Pennsylvania. Protecting those jobs and ascertaining we’re not losing multi-billion dollar facilities for U.S. steel is going to be a major priority for me.”
