On Tuesday night Barack Obama was at an event at Rice University’s Baker Institute, where he talked on a panel of leftists. Obama was his typical smug self who was out to take credit for things he had nothing to do with. In this segment Obama took credit for the United States becoming the number one oil producer in the world. Ironically he makes this statement right after he said he was proud of the Paris accord.
Obama was at war with Fossil Fuels in the United States in an attempt to switch us over to Green energy. Obama was doing everything in his power to set high regulation on the oil production from the United States, Example he reduced the depth oil companies could drill in the Ocean.
The reason for the United States becoming the world leader in oil is the Obama regulations ran up and Trump did not renew them.
Obama Stated,“I was extraordinarily proud of the Paris accords because — you know, I know we’re in oil country and we need American energy, and by the way, American energy production.”
Obama stated about Oil production, “You wouldn’t always know it but it went up every year I was president. That whole, suddenly America’s like the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people.”
