Biden Energy Sec. Granholm triples down on ‘green’ as ‘the only way out’ of high gas prices

U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Wednesday warned that the nation would continue to feel the sting of price shocks if it did not break its dependence on fossil fuels.

Speaking to reporters from the White House, Granholm said the nation would feel price shocks so long as it remains “overly reliant on oil and fossil fuels.”

“This is not going to be the last time. The next time that there’s a war, the next time there’s a pandemic, or another hurricane – these extreme weather events we are experiencing – they will impact the access that we have to fossil fuels,” Granholm said.

She added that the only way for the nation to avoid “boom-and-bust cycles” was to break its “sole reliance” on fossil fuels. That effort, she said, would mean diversifying the nation’s fuel sources by deploying “clean energy.”
