Texas Gov. Abbott denounces Biden’s ESG policies that hurt Texas oil and natural gas industry


Free Vulcan:
Gov. Greg Abbott denounced President Biden’s ESG policies on Thursday, arguing they will hurt the U.S. energy industry.

Biden’s environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) policies “directly threaten millions of American energy jobs – many of which are based in Texas – compromise American energy security, and further a trend of federal attempts to undermine the nation's energy industry,” he said.

Abbott sent a letter to the president, saying, “Your administration has waged war on the American energy sector. Just a few short years ago, America was energy independent, with a blossoming exploration business and exports that could fuel the needs of our trading partners around the world. Over the past two years, you have tried to stifle the American energy sector with your ESG fanaticism, your overly aggressive Environmental Protection Agency, and your favoritism of foreign oil over homegrown energy.

“As the Governor of Texas, I see firsthand the problems your policies have created for hard-working Americans looking for an opportunity to succeed. By pushing this radical ESG agenda, you are risking the lifelong savings of millions, for political points. I will continue to stand up for my constituents who rely upon the good-paying jobs of our energy industry. Anyone who puts their livelihood at risk will have a fight on their hands down in Texas.”

Of course they will

That’s the goal of the administration
