Former Trump Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Wednesday slammed the Biden administration’s ‘junk’ climate plan on ‘Hannity’, saying they refused to ‘face the facts’ when it comes to relates to American clean energy.

RICK PERRY: A year and a half ago, America was the world leader in energy production. We were doing what Donald Trump asked us to do. We were making Europe safer. We had the Iranians on their knees. The Chinese were paying attention to us, I must add with great respect, and Russia was not going to attack the United States. All that changed in a very short time. What the Energy Secretary [Jennifer Granholm] speak here, it’s a piece of something okay, it’s a piece of bric-a-brac. The idea that you’re going to bring America to its knees in this effort to chase this climate issue when they won’t face the facts. American clean energy was reducing emissions around the world, and we could continue to do so. We could replace Indian coal with American natural gas. We could have replaced the old coal plants in Europe with American natural gas. That would have been a real reduction in emissions, not to mention what might happen there if the administration adopted the small modular reactors.
