President Biden is under fire once again for his anti-oil and gas stance, as Canada pleads for the cross-border Great Lakes oil pipeline to remain open. Calls to strengthen the joint response to climate change seem to be at odds with the two countries’ oil industries. Canada is fighting the state of Michigan to keep the cross-border pipeline open.
To achieve major policy change in the direction of renewable energy, the United States and Canada must work together to sustain their oil and gas industries. It is also developing a consistent plan for moving away from fossil fuels. As Canada pleads for the cross-border Great Lakes oil pipeline to remain open, President Biden is under fire once again for his anti-oil and gas stance.
The pipeline currently provides electricity to about 40 million people in Michigan, Ontario, and Quebec, so the damage caused by its closure will be important. After President Biden took office earlier this year, this is the second big pipeline that has sparked a dispute between the US and Canada. The cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline project in January was the first.
