An analysis by ‘Breitbart News‘ has raised the alarm over Joe Biden’s position on fracking and phasing out fossil fuels and natural gas.
A recent study found Michigan supports around 159,000 jobs in the oil and gas industry, all of which would be eliminated under Biden’s plan to achieve zero emissions by 2035.
According to the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, Michigan’s energy sector contributes nearly $14.6 billion dollars to the state’s economy.
The state has also been number one in terms of its capacity to store energy, housing 1.1 trillion cubic feet in underground storage space.
