On Friday, CNBC’s Rick Santelli on the show “Squawk Box” that the world economy is “doomed” if leaders abandon fossil fuels.

The Daily Caller reports:


Santelli warned about inflation and consumers feeling the effects throughout the near future.

“If you’re looking at inflation, I think one of the guests said they think it’s probably going to remain sticky. I think it’s the rate of change, and the American public is not stupid, meaning, it’s going to certainly quit going up as fast as it is, but prices are not —and I underscore — are not going back to where they were,” he said. “You need months and months and months of minus signs on year-over-year, months over months on CPI and PPI. Don’t think you’re going to get months and months of those, and on the other data with regard to this jobs report, I would say that the rest of the world’s in much worse shape than us.”

“I think it’s really funny when I see the Eurozone debating about what to do with oil and gas, and Putin’s somewhere watching it. It just seems really weird, he’s holding the switch. He can do it anytime he wants,” Santelli added. “And I still say, if there’s one word about what the future of the world’s economy looks like down the road, and people aren’t going to like this, it’s about the cost of energy. If people want to keep energy prices high and the governments want to have secret meetings about really not being all that enamored with fossil fuels at this point in history, then we’re all doomed to slower economies down the road, period.”

President Joe Biden has reversed several Trump-era energy policies since taking office, with former Interior Secretary David Bernhardt recently saying the move has hurt Americans amid the Ukraine crisis.

He’s right, the world is not prepared to eliminate fossil fuels. Other forms of energy have just not been developed enough to replace them. Anybody seen any ” electric ” airplanes yet? Just about everything that moves the world’s economies rely on fossil fuels.

True moral of the story-never vote for a liberal at all, for any reason at all, under any circumstances at all. And if you do then keep your mouth shut about the consequences.

Biden is a goof -his whole administration is useless – rejects at best – they certainly know nothing about money -but I can say that about the DC Gang -including the Rinos included

I agree. They’re more concerned about checking boxes than helping the American people.

If the Biden administration did not think of what is in the best interests of the American People, he would never have pushed Covid vaccinations/boosting and required masking so hard. Sure, Republicans called this concern for our public health “government overreach”, but many of them are dead now or have long-Covid sequela because they didn’t listen to him and care about the health of their fellow Americans.
