Biden Energy Secretary Says She’s 'Obsessed' with 'Green Transition'
Biden officials are still claiming it is just a 'transition'
As America is entering what is undeniably a recession, Biden officials are still claiming it is just a “transition."
It has been noted that many in the Biden administration are denying the reality of the grim economic situation by effectively arguing with the dictionary.
Biden energy secretary Jennifer Granholm even admitted that she and others are “obsessed” with getting to “net zero by 2050."

Meanwhile, Biden economic advisor Brain Deese again says it’s not a recession, it’s a “transition”:

Last week, Granholm urged the international community Thursday to help expedite the transition to “clean energy” amid soaring energy prices.
“Right now, we are witnessing the beginning of one of the most significant events in human history: the clean energy transition," she said.
"It is long overdue, and it can’t progress fast enough,” said Granholm in a video posted to the official U.S. Department of Energy YouTube channel.

Granholm used the video to invite the international community to participate in the Global Clean Energy Action Forum (GCEAF) being held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in September.
“From September 21st through the 23rd, I’m bringing together the people who are transforming our energy system,” said Granholm.
"We’ll be gathering here to … turn our clean energy ambition into action and accelerate our efforts to make clean energy more secure, more affordable, and more accessible.”
Meanwhile, hen asked by reporters why the administration seems hell bent on denying there is no recession, Deese had no answer:
"You've spent a lot of time...trying to explain why the U.S. is not definitionally in a recession. Why should the average American...care?"— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) July 26, 2022

The U.S. energy inflation rate rose 41.5% in June 2021 and 7.5% from May 2022 to June 2022, according to BLS.
Americans saw a 13.7% rise in electricity rates, but Gasoline prices have seen the largest increase over the last year, rising 59%, BLS reported.
President Joe Biden defended high energy prices by blaming it on several issues, including Russia’s war in Ukraine, energy companies using the crisis to profit from high gas station prices, and the CPI numbers being “out-of-date.”
