Biden Defends His Push for More Oil Production

On the last day of the Group of 20 summit, President Biden told reporters that it was not inconsistent for him to urge oil producers to pump more fossil fuels while imploring countries to tackle climate change.

The truth of the matter is you’ve all known, everyone knows, that the idea we’re going to be able to move to renewable energy overnight, and not have — from this moment on not use oil, or not use gas, or not use hydrogen, is just not rational. Certain things we can wipe out and we don’t have to do. We should be moving immediately to get rid of as they’ve adopted here, my proposal, to end methane, to deal with a whole range of things. But it does on the surface seem inconsistent, but it’s not at all inconsistent in that no one has anticipated that this year we’d be in a position, or even next year, that we’re not going to use any more oil or gas, that we’re not going to be engaged in any fossil fuels. We’re going to stop subsidizing those fossil fuels. We’re going to make significant changes. And it just makes the argument that we should move more rapidly to renewable energy, the wind and solar and other means of energy.
