From President Biden’s virtual remarks on Wednesday; the second of the day. The YouTube is 33 minutes and 1 second long. His full remarks can be found here.
President Biden: Some see it as a challenge, but we see an opportunity — a real opportunity to shift to a net-zero sum carbon world in one of the most significant economic transitions since the Industrial Revolution. That’s not hyperbole; that’s a fact. We’re also confronting it head on with American ingenuity and American jobs. That’s why my Infrastructure Law invested over $7 billion in battery supply chains that are going to bolster U.S. capacity for processing, manufacturing, and recycling critical minerals like lithium, nickel, and graphite.
The YouTube is 21 minutes and 25 seconds long. President Biden begins his remarks at the 3:55 second mark. His full remarks can be found here.
Google tells me her birthday is October 20th 1964. The tweeted out 16 second video features no voice-over just fancy music.
From his remarks on Thursday:
President Biden: When you see these projects in your neighborhoods — cranes going up, shovels in the ground — I want you to feel the way I feel: Pride. Pride in what we can do when we work together. And that’s what I mean when I say we’re building a better America.
President Biden: Just nine months ago — January 28th in 2022 — I was about to leave the White House on my way to Mill 19 here in Pittsburgh to talk about the resurgence of American manufacturing.
President Biden: At 6:45 on a snowy day, the bridge behind me collapsed, 100 feet straight down to Fern Hollow. And five cars and a bus were crossing the bridge at the time. Several people were injured.
President Biden: But with the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we’re doing something about it. This is just one of 2,400 bridges across the country that are being repaired just this year because of this law.
President Biden: As I’ve said before, that America is the only country in the world that comes out of crises stronger than we went into the crisis. And that’s the story I want to tell here today, briefly.
The rest of the tweet text is not from his remarks.
The tweet text was taken from remarks he gave Wednesday; the first of the day. The YouTube is 13 minutes long. His full remarks can be found here.
President Biden: The choices made by other countries are affecting the price of gas here at home. That’s why I’ve been acting so aggressively. Without the steps we have taken over the past several months to ramp up production and lower prices and get relief to consumers, gas prices would be higher than they are today. And we’ll keep doing everything we can to keep it going to ensure our energy independence and security is available and to lower gas prices here at home and to give folks a little bit of breathing room.
President Biden has tweeted…
He’s got 1 tweet so far for Friday, this will change. It’s changed it’s now 33
From his first remarks on Wednesday:
President Biden: Right now, the process of getting clean energy projects approved is too cumbersome and too time consuming. So, I’m asking the Congress: Pass a permitting bill to speed up the approval of all kinds of energy production from wind, to solar, to clean hydrogen. Because we need to get this moving now, quickly — now.
The video snip is 55 seconds long.
President Biden: Today I’m announcing three critical steps that my administration will take to reduce gas prices at the pump. First, the Department of Energy will release another 15 million barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, extending our previously announced release through the month of December.
President Biden: Secondly, we need to responsibly increase American oil production without delaying or deferring our transition to clean energy. Let me — let’s debunk some myths here. My administration has not stopped or slowed U.S. oil production; quite the opposite. We’re producing 12 million barrels of oil per day. And by the end of this year, we will be producing 1 million barrels a day, more than the day in which I took office. In fact, we’re on track for record oil production in 2023.
President Biden: The third thing I’m doing is I’m calling on oil companies to pass the savings on to consumers.
President Biden: Here’s another thing: When the cost of oil comes down, we should see the price at the gas station — at the pump come down as well. That’s how it’s supposed to work. But that’s not what’s happening.
President Biden: And we’ll keep doing everything we can to keep it going to ensure our energy independence and security is available and to lower gas prices here at home and to give folks a little bit of breathing room.
This is an Open Thread.
FYI his remarks will probably be over by noon D.C., time. We’ll catch it up on Monday…
Oh, but I won’t be doing the catching up, that’s right I’m back to Disneyland!
