Kamala Harris: Fossil Fuel Workers Can ‘Transition’ To Installing Wind Turbines And Solar Panels | The Daily Caller

Kamala Harris said Thursday that unemployed fossil fuel industry workers can always “transition” to jobs in renewable energy — like installing wind turbines and solar panels.

The Democratic presidential nominee was asked by The Weather Channel about the plight of energy workers who would be put out of work by a shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy, as recommended by the Green New Deal that Harris has endorsed.

“Well, for the workers in that industry … we have to encourage that those industries do better, in terms of giving the workers an ability to transition into the jobs of the future such as renewable energy,” Harris explained.

The senator then said she knew exactly where they could work, citing data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
