Wowzers. As if President Joe Biden shutting down pipelines as soon as he took office wasn't bad enough, he is now considering shutting down yet another pipeline which would serve as a blow to our already skyrocketing gas prices.
According to the Daily Mail, the administration is considering a request from 12 federally recognized tribes to cancel the 78-year-old Line 5 oil pipeline, which is owned by Canadian company, Enbridge.
Enbridge is already fighting multiple state and federal court battles to keep the pipeline open. According to Detroit News, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has already “revoked and terminated Enbridge’s easement with the state last fall and ordered a Line 5 shutdown by the spring, which the company is resisting.”
The tribes sent a letter to the Biden-Harris administration Friday to request their “help” in terminating an “existential threat to our treaty-protected rights, resources, and fundamental way of life.”
The tribes also called on President Biden to honor his campaign promise to “protect… fundamental interests.”
They argue the oil pipeline infringes on the 1836 Treaty of Washington, “which ceded Ojibwe and Odawa lands in Michigan in exchange for fishing, hunting and gathering rights on the treaty territory.” But Jason Hayes, director of environmental policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, believes canceling the pipeline would violate an agreement with Canada that allows the pipeline to flow between the two North American countries.
Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm warned on Sunday that we could start seeing gas prices over $4.00 per gallon! “Well, we certainly hope not,” she said on CNN, adding that the “average gas price in America be $4 a gallon in the United States soon.”
“The president is all over this. Of course, every president is frustrated because they can’t control the price of gasoline, because it’s a global market. You can call upon increased supply, which he has done,” she continued. “And OPEC is, unfortunately, controlling the agenda with respect to oil prices. OPEC is a cartel and it controls over 50 percent of the supply of gasoline."
I'm sure Biden won't take responsibility for the drastic impact it would have on the United Sates to shut down the pipeline, just like he doesn't take responsibility for the disaster he has already created.
