Biden’s Anti-Fossil Fuel Agenda Hurts the World’s Poor

Katie Tahuahua writes on RealClearEnergy that President Biden’s anti-fossil fuel executive orders hurt the world’s poor.

The C3 Take
  • The Biden administration’s executive order that ended international financing of fossil fuel-based energy hurts the world’s poor and our environment.
  • Instead of being able to access affordable fossil fuels, many people in developing nations will be forced to turn to less reliable and more expensive energy sources, which will ultimately hurt energy security and economic development across the world.
  • In order to promote equity and bring the world’s poorest out of poverty, the President should reverse this disastrous executive order and promote clean-burning American natural gas exports.

“Energy poverty is among the most crippling but least talked-about crises of the 21st century. Billions like Aysha in Africa, Southeast Asia, South America, and even parts of the United States live with little to no access to electricity. Electricity is the one of the simplest solutions to improved health, economic opportunity, education, nutrition, and comfort in the developing world, especially for women and girls.”
