Climate czar John Kerry admitted Wednesday that fuel pipelines are more efficient in terms of carbon-delivery than trains or trucks, despite the fact that President Joe Biden canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline via executive order in January.
“Isn’t it true the pipelines are more carbon-delivery efficient than trains or trucks or other forms of delivery? If you could answer just that limited question,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) asked at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing.
“Yeah, that is true,” Kerry responded. “I, I think that is true, but it doesn’t mean necessarily you want to be adding another line when there are other alternatives.”
“But is it better than train, and better than that, yes it is,” he added.
Biden signed the order to end construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. The pipeline ran from Alberta, Canada, to an oil pipeline distribution center in Oklahoma.
Kerry’s statements come as the many parts of the southeastern U.S. faced gas shortages after a cyber-attack on the Colonial Pipeline.
The cyber-attack “forced the closure of the 5,500-mile pipeline, which moves more than 100 million gallons of fuel from Texas to New Jersey every day — nearly 50% of the fuel consumed on the East Coast,” according to the Daily Wire.
Kerry’s latest remarks reveal Biden’s climate change plan is not built on science and facts as much as originally believed.
