As the global recovery from the COVID-19 “pandemic” proceeds, most Americans will have a much more expensive winter due to forecasted colder-than-typical weather, as well as higher energy costs leading to high home heating bills.
This is thanks to none other than the designed plan of GLOBALISM. (Because, of course)
What Do Biden Officials Say?
In an interview with CNN, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm acknowledged that all Americans will face increases in heating costs over the winter.
The interviewer asked Granholm about the higher heating costs, and Granholm replied that United States consumers should simply be grateful that they don’t live in Europe where costs are much more expensive.
When asked about gasoline prices reaching $4/gallon, Granholm said, “We certainly hope not. The president is all over this. Of course, every president is frustrated because they can’t control the price of gasoline, because it’s a global market. You can call upon increased supply, which he has done.”
Granholm blamed the energy producers for the higher costs.
She stated that the Biden administration’s goal is to “[move] to clean energy where we will not have this problem.”
She denied the impact that Biden’s policies regarding fossil fuels and clean energy may have had on costs.
What Kind of Heating Will Be Affected?
No matter whether one heats with natural gas, electricity, or heating oil, officials predict that heating costs will rise.
How much of an increase consumers will experience depends on the kind of heat that is used in the home.
About half of the nation’s homes are heated by using natural gas.
The report predicts that the average home using natural gas will experience costs of around $750 over the course of the winter, 30% higher than last year.
Those who use heating oil, about 4% of consumers in the United States, are predicted to spend over $1,700 this winter to heat their homes.
This is an increase of 43% from last year.
About 41% of United States consumers rely upon heat pumps or other electric heaters in winter to stay warm, consisting of about two-thirds of the homes in the South.
Families who use electric heat can expect heating bills of over $1,200 this winter, which is 6% higher than in 2020.
5% of consumers in the United States use propane fuel as their primary source of heat in cold weather.
These consumers can expect to spend almost $650 over the course of the winter, a 54% increase from the winter of 2020.
What Is Causing the Increase?
The reasons for higher bills are twofold.
First, NOAA released a report in mid-October predicting a La Niña winter weather pattern.
La Niña weather patterns develop as a result of cooler than average temperatures on the surface of the Pacific Ocean.
These ocean temperatures affect weather patterns across the North American continent.
La Niña weather patterns typically lead to cooler temperatures and more precipitation.
Scientists at NOAA believe there is an 87% chance of a La Niña pattern setting up for the winter of 2021-2022.
Obviously, colder weather means that consumers will have to run their heat more often.
Besides colder and wetter weather, the costs of energy are simply higher than they were one year ago.
Last year, the China Virus lockdowns led to an energy surplus as workers, travelers, and families stayed home.
This year, as the world recovers from the virus, demand is ramping up, leading to higher prices.
Producers have been unable to keep up with producing the natural gas and petroleum needed to supply the world.
Who Is to Blame?
Some of the problem simply is a result of the worldwide economy resetting after over a year and a half of pandemic-related economic problems.
Demand was low during 2020 as factories operated on reduced schedules, so natural gas production went into storage.
However, as the economy has rebounded and manufacturing has increased, more natural gas is needed.
Once manufacturers began demanding more natural gas, this caused a ripple effect across other energy sectors.
When natural gas is more expensive, some sectors, like electricity generation, iron, steel, and paper factories, can switch their primary fuel use to other sources, leading to higher prices for other energy products as well.
But all of that is linked into one truth: This was a designed effort by the New World Order.
For power, for control, for their ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT.
