NEIL CAVUTO (HOST): You know, we look at prices right now and Jeff outlined a lot of those that are soaring and expected to continue soaring. Did you hear anything out of the President today that gives you a hint that might stop?

BRIAN BRENBERG (GUEST): Absolutely not. He's talking about more wind off the Gulf Coast and cooling centers and that's going to solve the problem that Jeff so rightly pointed out. This is a non-solution program by the President. And more and more it simply looks like they don't want a solution.

Pete Buttigieg made that pretty clear yesterday. His point is the worse this gets, the more likely the President's green agenda goes through. They want everybody in a electric car and if that means you have to boil this summer, I guess that's what you have to do. He's standing in front of an empty lot in this speech today, Neil.

I think most of America wishes the coal plant was still there because then we'd be able to bring down these electricity prices and more people could be in a cool environment and be safer. Europe is showing us the wrong path. And I'm sorry to say, Neil, it looks like we're following straight down that path right now.
