Real Abundance, False Promises

WASHINGTON – AEA president Thomas Pyle made the following statement in response to the non-binding “Green New Deal” resolution introduced this morning:

“For nearly a decade now the United States, long blessed with vast natural resources, has benefited from the greatest energy expansion in the history of the world. Our energy producers have delivered the low cost, affordable and reliable energy that has fueled economic growth and opportunity for all Americans, no matter their race, sex, creed, or color. We have drilled our way to prosperity here at home and, as this energy revolution continues, the U.S. will lift millions of people out of energy poverty around the globe while reducing the power of those who fuel their hostile regimes with petrodollars.

During this same time period the green left — through the apparatus of the Democratic Party — has done everything in their power to stop it. They have failed. The resolution is nothing more than an organizational device to advance the political agenda of the socialist wing of the Democratic party wrapped in a green bow. There is nothing aspirational about making false promises to the very people it claims to be trying to help. In fact, it is immoral.”
