‘If you drive an electric car’ fuel shortages ‘would not be affecting you’: US energy secretary

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm smiled in a response at the White House media briefing. “If you drive an electric car,” he said, a colonial pipeline attack in the United States “will not affect you.” “Obviously, there are serious problems with colonial pipeline ransomware attacks, but more overall in macro view, this is what the DOE (Department of Energy) is trying to do to move towards renewable energy. How do you speed it up? To influence people with pumps? “The reporter asked. “Obviously, we are committed to ensuring that we achieve 100% clean electricity by 2035 and zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2050.” Said Granholm. “If you drive an electric car, this obviously won’t affect you.” Her remarks exceed 1,000 in the southeast during the failure of a cyberattack in the colonial pipeline last week. It came from the service station reporting out of fuel. The several-day closure of the largest fuel pipeline in the United States has caused panic buying among drivers. Ms. Granholm urged Americans not to stock up, saying the Colonial Pipeline hopes to “substantially” recover operations by the weekend.
