After President Joe Biden doubled down on his anti-fossil fuel agenda, ‘How America Works’ host Mike Rowe reacted to how that message resonates with the U.S. oil and gas industry during a town hall “Fox & Friends” on Monday, before Tuesday. midterm election.
“I suspect they find it boring, obviously,” Rowe told the crowd. “On a practical level, it’s just bad news for your personal economy.”
President Biden said at an event in California on Friday that coal-fired power plants were too expensive to operate and that “we’re going to shut down those plants all over America” in order to switch to renewable energy sources.
“I was in Massachusetts about a month ago at the site of America’s largest old coal-fired power plant,” Biden had said. “Guess what? It cost them too much money. They can’t count. No one is building new coal plants because they can’t count on them. Even though they have all the coal guaranteed for the the existence of the plant… So it’s going to become a wind generation.”
Rowe reacted to those comments, saying Biden can only get away with saying things like that if he believes “the world is truly and truly coming to an end.”

“Is the world really coming to an end? If we can’t answer that with a straight face, then I guess we’ll keep having these weird conversations where the words don’t mean what we thought they did. they meant,” Rowe said. said. “It’s like that scene from ‘A Princess Bride,’ isn’t it? You keep using that word. I don’t think it means what you think it means.”
Earlier Monday on “Fox & Friends First,” a former Keystone XL pipeline worker said Biden’s energy policies are “extremely aggravating” to listen to, arguing the administration is doing nothing to help energy production.
“If you are a voter and you did not participate in early voting and you are going to vote tomorrow, I hope that is an issue that you will consider because as far as keeping promises is concerned, it is a promise that Biden kept: he destroyed the energy in this country,” Neal Crabtree said, “and I hope some of the voters will look at the candidates there who realize how important energy is in this country. , and more importantly, how closely energy relates to inflation.”
A report from the Department of Energy published this summer showed massive job losses in the fuel industry after Biden’s presidential campaign where he pledged to move the country away from fossil fuels.
Crabtree denounced the “stupidity” of the Biden administration in encouraging pipeline workers to find new jobs in the renewable energy sector.
“Our industry is focused on maintaining the pipelines and refineries that we have because we know how important they are,” Crabtree said. “But the scary thing is that we haven’t added any capacity while the demand for oil and gas is on the rise.”
When asked by a member of the public on Monday what the first thing he would do if elected president, Rowe noted that it was “far from [his] way,” but he would apply the laws that are in the books.
“Look, we need to have a mechanism by which Americans can see the consequences of this unfolding,” the “How America Works” host said, “and if we don’t have that, we’re just doing ourselves dazzle.”

During the 2020 election campaign, candidate Biden suggested that coal miners facing an economy where their jobs are potentially being cut should “learn to program.”
“Anyone who can descend 300 to 3,000 feet into a mine can also learn to program,” Biden had said. said in New Hampshire at a campaign event. “But we don’t think of it that way. Anyone who can throw coal in a furnace can learn to program, for God’s sake.”
