TransCanada Keystone XLPresident Biden's executive orders on renewable energy and protecting the environment might please Americans who are convinced the planet is in peril but many other Americans need convincing their now-gone job and unemployment are worth it.

President Biden and the Democrats “ declared war on the energy industry, one of the biggest employers in America," Gary Bauer of Campaign for Working Families told American Family Radio.

There are likely a lot of young Americans, scared of global warming, who applaud Biden's actions, Bauer continued, "but let us remind them their fellow Americans are going to be on food stamps because their fellow Americans that work in the energy industry are not going to be able to be retrained and do solar panel work."

Kathleen Sgamma of Western Energy Alliance, a pro-oil and gas organization, has also questioned claims oil and gas workers, who number in the tens of thousands, will find jobs in the alternative energy sector after losing their current good-paying jobs.

WEA estimates 58,700 jobs will be lost in eight states out West during Biden's first term.

"If you're a guy that makes a living working at home on the computer, you might not care about something like the energy industry," Bauer observed. "But if you're a guy that has to go out there and work with your hands to put food on the table for your spouse and your children, you care about what's happening to manufacturing jobs, energy jobs, and so forth."
