(LifeSiteNews) – U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm is calling for a green energy “transition” amid high energy prices, claiming that it would mark “one of the most significant events in human history.”
Granholm made her remarks in a YouTube video released by the Department of Energy Thursday. “Right now, we are witnessing the beginning of one of the most significant events in human history: the clean energy transition,” Granholm stated. “It is long overdue, and it can’t progress fast enough.”
The department released the video as an international promotion for the Global Clean Energy Action Forum (GCEAF), set to take place in Pittsburgh in late September this year. According to Granholm, officials from over thirty countries will participate along with business leaders to focus on making clean energy “more secure, more affordable, and more accessible.”
The video comes as the Bureau of Labor and Statistics’ Consumer Price Index Report shows that gas prices increased by 7.5% in June, with an increase of 59.9% over the past year, the largest gas price increase since 1980. Electricity prices also increased 1.7% in June, and natural gas experienced an 8.2% increase last month.
Granholm has previously expressed a desire to “transition” away from oil and gas. In November 2021, she stated that “We’re working through an energy transition … The reality is, we have to take some time to get off of oil and gas, we recognize this. This is a transition.”
The Biden administration has frequently blamed oil companies and the Russian invasion of Ukraine for the high cost of gas and related inflation. However, the administration soon after taking office ordered a freeze on new oil and gas leasing on federal lands and also demanded further crackdowns on coal plants.

If you are not aware of the foreign security threats implicated in the "Hunter Biden Laptop Story" — and what they might mean for America's national security and foreign geopolitical affairs — that’s by design.
You were never meant to discover the contents compromising President Joe Biden, and for good reason. The mainstream media kept you ignorant on purpose.
Washington Post roasted for acknowledging Hunter Biden scandal once called 'fake': 'Retroactive Pulitzer?'https://t.co/5mCc5w51xs— Fox News (@FoxNews) March 30, 2022
The Hunter Biden laptop was real, of course. The NYT buries its confirmation of the story in paragraph 27. https://t.co/be9cPkXsKF— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) March 17, 2022
In fact, the New York Post was censored by Twitter, Facebook, and all of Big Tech for even breaking the story that Hunter Biden’s laptop existed.
CNN, MSNBC dismissed Hunter Biden’s laptop as ‘Russian disinformation’ until liberal narrative was deflatedhttps://t.co/NwYPMEZ73u— Fox News (@FoxNews) April 6, 2022
The New York Times, Washington Post, and the entire mainstream media called any reference to the story “Russian disinformation."
THAT’S WHY AMERICA MUST INSIST THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BIDEN FAMILY AND THE CONTENTS OF HUNTER’S LAPTOP!
SIGN: Tell the Mainstream Media that viewers demand transparency on the Bidens NOW!
Enough is enough — America refuses to be kept wondering about our compromised national security, corrupt sweetheart business deals, and pay-to-play schemes detailed in the Hunter Biden Laptop.
“Polling taken in April shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the president has been compromised by his family’s shady business dealings with China,” LifeSiteNews reported on July 1, 2022.
Even CNN has finally begun to admit that the Hunter Biden Laptop is a serious problem:
- Illegal gun purchase
- Sweetheart foreign Ukraine deals
- Political access to (then) Vice-President Joe Biden
- Federal probes and investigations
Voters MUST know for whom they are voting. Sound the alarm with our new petition! SIGN TODAY!
The First Amendments protects a Free Press to report the truth and protect the American people — but the mainstream media has betrayed its viewers, spinning pro-communist and pro-globalist narratives that are HURTING voters!
Voters MUST learn about President Joe Biden’s compromised business dealings with China, Russia, Ukraine, and so many others — all pointing to the Hunter Biden Laptop.
DEMAND THE TRUTH: WE WILL NO LONGER BE MISLED BY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!
Media executives must learn that their viewership will continue tanking as long as executives run cover for their far-left base.
Tell media executives that you will NO LONGER watch or trust their network until they fully reveal the contents of the Hunter Biden Laptop!
It is not enough to simply change the channel. We must leave a parting shot to mainstream media executives telling them WHY consumers are refusing to watch any longer.

This is the only way to save the future of the media and win back a trustworthy Free Press for future generations.
There is no telling what the mainstream media will continue to hide, deny, and deflect if they decide to run cover for the most powerful man in the world — the President of the United States.
*** There is no time to lose—we refuse to let important information remain hidden from the American voters any longer! ***
The Hunter Biden Laptop story is the single greatest piece of evidence indicating that America’s national security is likely compromised.

The administration faced criticism last week for blaming the war in Ukraine and gas companies for price hikes and taking credit for decreased gas prices. “This is really hypocritical on their part,” said Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer of Missouri, the top Republican on the House Small Business Committee. “They run prices up more than double because of regulations, then there is a little decrease, and they tout that. It’s insulting.”
Last month, Brian Deese, director of President Joe Biden’s National Economic Council, told CNN in an interview that high gas prices were necessary to protect the “liberal world order.” “This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm,” Deese said after he was asked about the impact of the Ukraine war on American gas prices.
Biden has stated that Americans should be willing to pay high gas prices for “as long as it takes” to defeat Russian President Vladimir Putin.
