Every time that Democrats talk about energy issues they sound like complete morons who are utterly out of touch.
John Kerry recently attended a political event at the University of California and said that America ‘absolutely’ does not need to drill for more gas and oil.
John Kerry is absolutely wrong, as usual.
Gas, oil, and other forms of energy are tied to every single aspect of America’s economy. If we had more of it, inflation wouldn’t be as bad as it has been for months.
Having a surplus of energy would also drive down the rapidly rising price of gas.
John Kerry: We Don’t Need to Drill More for Oil and Gas
John Kerry, who is the U.S. special presidential envoy for climate, stated at a recent event at the University of Southern California that the country does not need to put more effort into drilling for oil and gas as energy costs continue to rise.
The most obvious sign of the increase in energy costs has been at gas stations, where the national average now stands at $5.01 per gallon, but utility bills are also expected to increase this summer. Republicans in Congress have called for more domestic production to increase the supply of oil in order to reduce the cost.
“And energy security worry is driving a lot of the thoughts now about, ‘Oh, we need more drilling, we need more drilling of this, we need to go back to coal.’ No, we don’t. We absolutely don’t. And we have to prevent a false narrative from entering into this or, again, pun intended, we are cooked,” Kerry said.

Of course, John Kerry is incredibly wealthy and doesn’t have to worry about gas prices. He is also quite fond of flying around the world on private jets. It must be nice.
He recently tweeted this:
Encouraged by the progress made in LA on accelerating climate action in the Americas. Together we can make faster progress on deploying clean energy, mobilizing climate finance, reducing deforestation, and enhancing adaptation and resilience as we head to #COP27 #SummitAmericas

When do you think was the last time Kerry even pumped his own gas or drove a car himself?
Typical limousine liberal. Totally out of touch with average Americans.
