Well, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu told the truth before a House appropriations committee earlier this week.
During an exchange with Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-MS), Chu was asked: “But is the overall goal to get our price” of gasoline down, asked Nunnelee. “No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil, to build and strengthen our economy,” Chu replied. “We think that if you consider all these energy policies, including energy efficiency, we think that we can go a long way to becoming less dependent on oil and [diversifying] our supply and we’ll help the American economy and the American consumers.”
This is the same sort of nonsense that Chu expounded in 2008 while he was the head of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California. Chu told The Wall Street Journal that energy prices were the lynchpin to an energy overhaul. “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”
They’ve figured it out, all right: Block oil drilling, pipeline construction, coal production, and natural gas exploration – and leave us with algae, wind mills, and solar panels. Welcome to the Dark Ages.
There you have it. An open admission from an Obamunist that the Administration WANTS higher gas prices in order to force us into using “green” energy resources and, of course, driving Chevy Volts until the batteries explode.
Such criminality must be punished at the polls in November.
