When Joe Biden was sworn into the presidency, it was the dawn of a bold new era. An era in which the oceans stopped rising and the earth began to heal.
Wait, that was when Obama was sworn in. Well, at the very least, President Biden would get us back to that place. And boy, is he committed:

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan calls on OPEC to boost oil production, saying planned production increases won’t offset cuts made during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“At a critical moment in the global recovery, this is simply not enough,” Sullivan said. pic.twitter.com/iYmBmqtEDG

Gas prices are skyrocketing, and something must be done to give Americans access to affordable and reliable energy. Clearly the solution is … getting OPEC+ to ramp up oil production!
What's our domestic output and logistical capability these days anyway? https://t.co/9xmF4bb15y

Not great, Bob!
This is the same admin that has repeatedly tried to limit domestic drilling, right? https://t.co/x3wXNqCFp1

The very same!
It’s completely ridiculous that the leader of the world’s largest oil producer is working against oil production.
I’m glad Joe Biden is committed to doing something about Joe Biden. https://t.co/nHNfaAoQuZ

Incredible cheek, "Opec+ must do more to support the recovery", when the US could increase its own production!

Odd. Instead of relying on a cartel run by those on the other side of the world that do not share our national interests, why don’t we take steps on our continent to become more energy independent? We could start with a large pipeline. Let’s call it Keystone XL!

Now there’s an idea. Let’s try that!
Oh, right. We did.
Didn’t Biden cancel an oil pipeline here in America that would have made us more energy independent? https://t.co/CNtksht4AO

Incredible. @JoeBiden shut down the Keystone Pipeline and made it harder for American oil and gas producers already recovering from government shutdowns and the economic fallout from them.
Now he’s urging OPEC to pump more oil. https://t.co/MGApwVUNKu

Or they could’ve not killed the Keystone Pipeline.

President Biden shut down an American pipeline and is now begging a foreign cartel to pump more oil.
The Biden Administration puts America last. https://t.co/Ve8JsToAYG

President Biden killed an oil pipeline at home and is now pleading with a foreign cartel to lower its prices. https://t.co/ZFjFngDRck

Quite a look for this administration. Especially given their professed commitment to leading by example in the fight against climate change.

Gotta love Science™.
So we need foreign countries to provide more oil to have affordable access to energy so we can run our planes on used cooking oil, while shutting down American pipeline projects and supporting Russian pipelines?
We're governed by morons. https://t.co/sXyftgLXZK

Well, at least there’s one silver lining here:

Thank God for that.
