Testimony Cited in The Epoch Times

Another witness, Rutgers University Professor Mark Paul, argued that “climate change is the greatest crisis humanity has faced.”

He testified that a move away from oil and gas would “delink the U.S. economy from hostile authoritarian regimes.”

Yet, robust evidence shows that a transition from fossil fuels risks strengthening America’s dependence on China, a hostile regime increasingly hostile to U.S. interests and run by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

“Unfortunately, Republican plans are intended to increase the extraction of fossil fuels,” Paul told Rep. Shontell Brown (D-Ohio), who accused Republicans of pushing “misinformation.”

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) asked Paul whether he supports nationalizing the U.S. oil industry. Paul said that he did.

She called that a “communist-style takeover.”
