Biden’s Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm pushed for the elitist international community to assist in expediting the transition to “clean energy” on Thursday as inflation rages out of control and energy prices soar into the stratosphere.

In nothing less than a “let them eat cake” moment, Granholm promoted a green “transition” even though it is devastating the middle class, asserting that leftists should speed up the process regardless of consequences.

“Right now, we are witnessing the beginning of one of the most significant events in human history: the clean energy transition. It is long overdue, and it can’t progress fast enough,” she proclaimed in a video that was posted to the official U.S. Department of Energy YouTube channel.

The energy secretary used the video to invite the international community to participate in the Global Clean Energy Action Forum (GCEAF) that is being held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this September.

“From September 21st through the 23rd, I’m bringing together the people who are transforming our energy system,” she declared. “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.”

Among the participants of the Global Clean Energy Action Forum are entrepreneurs, green energy leaders, and science ministers from over 30 countries.

“This September in Pittsburgh, the U.S. will host the first ever Global Clean Energy Action Forum, a joint convening of the 13th Clean Energy Ministerial l and 7th Mission Innovation ministerial. Governments, international organizations, the private sector, academia, innovators, civil society, and early career researchers and policy makers will join together in a three-day event that features a high-level plenary, topical roundtables with energy and science ministers from 31 countries, CEOs and experts, side events, technology demonstrations, and other activities,” the GCEAF website states.

“The global clean energy transition will bring enormous opportunities and benefits to our communities, workers and industry. The many varieties of clean energy will be key in helping us emerge from the triple global crises of climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and a crisis of energy security where we have seen energy used as a weapon,” the website contends.

Energy costs in the United States have hit a 40-year high according to the Consumer Price Index report, released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

Energy inflation rose a whopping 41.5 percent in June 2021 and 7.5% from May 2022 to June 2022, according to the BLS. There was a 13.7 percent rise in electricity rates. But gas prices were the worst. They have risen 59 percent over the last year, according to the report.

President Biden and Democrats are heatedly defending the rise in energy prices and have a whole list of entities to blame for it, except themselves of course. Everyone from Republicans to gas stations, to Russia, to COVID… but it’s never the left’s policies at fault.
