Q: “Would there be any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in a Biden administration?”

BIDEN: “No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel.”

BIDEN: “Number one, no more subsidies for the fossil fuel industry, no more drilling on federal lands, no more drilling, including offshore, no ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period, ends, number one.” […]

SANDERS: “You — you — you talk about — you know, I’m talking about stopping fracking as soon as we possibly can. I’m talking about telling the fossil fuel industry that they are going to stop destroying this planet — no ifs, buts and maybes about it. I’m talking about speaking to…”

BIDEN: “So am I.”

SANDERS: “Well, I’m not sure your proposal does that.” […]

More Joe Biden attacks on energy:

Biden has shown a consistent hostility to energy industry workers. In December he suggested if coal miners lose their job due to his policies they should learn to code.

Biden has also said “we should put them in jail” when talking about fossil fuel executives.

Biden also endorsed a carbon tax on the American people, which will force households to pay much higher gasoline, heating, and cooling bills.

Job losses and economic impact of Dems’ agenda.

Analysis from economist Stephen Moore: ‘Democrats’ War on Fracking Will Cost Them in Battleground States‘ (Jan. 22 2020)

– At least $1 trillion of U.S. economic output is related to the shale revolution
– More than 1.5 million Americans are employed in the industry
– At least 4 million American jobs are tied to the shale oil and gas revolution in areas like auto production, construction, petroleum engineering, pipe fitting, service stations, steel production and trucking
– Ohio & Michigan have a combined total of more than 400,000 workers in the shale industry
– Pennsylvania has 320,000
– Colorado has more than 200,000 workers
– Florida has more than 200,000 workers
– Pittsburgh has become a global energy hub
– Ohio & Pennsylvania: whole towns that were once left for dead have revitalized thanks to shale gas and related industries
– Texas: Nearly 2 million Texas are employed in oil and gas and related industries

Biden will phase out nearly all conventional forms of energy

Report: Joe Biden’s debate pledge to destroy US oil industry is just the beginning

But make no mistake about it, Biden’s proposal to eventually eliminate the oil sector is just the tip of the iceberg. By the time Biden’s first term is over, should he win in November, America would be on track to phase out nearly all conventional forms of energy — including coal and natural gas, much of which is captured using hydraulic fracturing, commonly called “fracking.”


Demanding a “100% clean-energy economy” and “net-zero emissions” — which would be guaranteed by an “enforcement mechanism that includes milestone targets” — would result in the end of virtually all conventional energy operations in the United States, including those related to fracking, coal and oil.


Carbon-capture technology is incredibly expensive, and it would make the cost of using natural gas and other conventional energy sources so high that it would effectively force conventional energy companies out of the marketplace, along with the millions of jobs they support.

Biden’s radical team will push him to the left:

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who said at a town hall in 2019, “There’s no question I’m in favor of banning fracking.”

Harris also co-sponsored the Senate version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radical Green New Deal, which proposes to phase out all fossil fuels in just one decade.

Speaking of comrade AOC, Biden agreed to have her serve as a co-chair of his climate change “Unity Task Force” earlier this year, along with former Secretary of State John Kerry, who also supports phasing out all fossil fuels.
