(PatrioticPost.com)- President Joe Biden has long claimed that transforming America’s energy economy would bring new jobs to the country and put those who currently work in the oil and gas industry to work in new positions, but the reality is already proving quite different.
The new Vineyard Wind project, which is a wind energy project just off the coast of Massachusetts, is expected to power as many as 400,000 homes before the end of 2023. It’s a windfarm constructed in partnership between Avangrid Inc. and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners…and it’s already building new jobs.
For people in Europe.
Vineyard Wind posted on Twitter that they are ready to build the first commercial-scale offshore wind farm in the United States to deliver clean power by 2023.
Jonathon Cole, the managing director of Iberdrola Renewables Offshore Group, which oversees the project, said that the smaller components used in the new windfarms might be manufactured in the United States, but that most of the parts needed to construct the wind farm will actually be constructed In Europe and elsewhere.
Wonderful news from our partner @VineyardWindUS! "Today’s Record of Decision is not about the start of a single project, but the launch of a new industry," says Vineyard Wind CEO Lars Pederson. Let's get to work on #offshorewind! https://t.co/X1uHHQ1EKJ

Reports suggest that it may be a matter of years before developers can begin building the components in American factories and that in order for the United States to finally start benefiting from the new industry – which will effectively destroy American coastlines by filling them up with thousands of wind turbines – more U.S. projects will need to be confirmed.
That means President Joe Biden needs to pump more and more taxpayer money into wind farms before the parts can be constructed in America, and before Americans can be hired to build them.
The wind turbines are double the height of the Statue of Liberty, and more than 2,000 will need to be installed to meet the president’s plan to generate 30 gigawatts of energy from offshore wind farms by 2030.
Just how much more money is Biden going to spend on projects that benefit the rest of the world and put Americans out of work?
