They grow them stupid in Western PA. Democrat Rep. Conor Lamb: Biden’s Job-Killing Environmentalist Agenda Good for Pennsylvania. How crazy is this? I always thought my congressional rep here in North East Ohio had a lock on stupidity ( Dago Red Tim ).
Congressman Lamb did an interview with the Pittsburgh newspaper. He actually thinks that all those oil companies that are now banned on federal lands will come running to Pennsylvania and frack. From Lamb.
“His policies are overall going to lift demand for labor and grow the economy in that way,” Mr. Lamb said, pointing to Mr. Biden’s “Buy American” executive order this week and his pledges to rebuild infrastructure.
“I’ve always argued that, if anything, that drilling ban helps Western Pennsylvania because we drill on private land here so they’ll be more demand for our gas,” Mr. Lamb added.
First the idea that there’s enough folks that will allow these companies to frack on their land is crazy. Also there are numerous groups who have been trying to ban fracking in Pennsylvania. Here’s what you lose on federal lands cause of the Biden assault on American workers.
Fossil fuel leasing on federal and tribal land, while accounting for nearly a quarter of the country’s annual carbon output, generated $11.7 billion in tax revenue in the 2019 fiscal year, according to the U.S. Department of the Interior, which manages public lands.
