Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden continues to fly in private jets and be transported in oversized SUV’s despite his call in 2019 to put fossil fuel executives “in jail” for failing to address climate change.

“Between the years 2021 and 2030, it is irreversible the path we set ourselves on,” Biden noted at a New Hampshire campaign town hall in December 2019. 
He continued, talking about how fossil fuel companies have to be responsible for their climate impacts.
“Holding them liable for what they have done…By the way, when they don’t deliver, put them in jail. I am not joking about that,” Biden said to applause at a town hall in Peterborough New Hampshire on December 29, 2019.
One attendee began speaking to Biden, saying, “If we don’t stop using fossil fuels.”
Biden interrupted him by saying, “We’re all dead.”

CNBC reported that Biden “spent way more on private jets in the third quarter than his top 2020 Democratic rivals.” “The Biden campaign spent nearly $924,000 on private jet travel in the third quarter, according to data from the Federal Elections Commission,” CNBC reported.

But despite wanting to keep fossil fuels in the ground, Biden can’t seem to stop using them in the air via private jets. Below is a video of Biden in August 2020 going from an SUV to a private jet.

When they don’t deliver, Biden offered, “put them in jail.”

Some spectators noted his obliviousness. Surely he didn’t forget that his son Hunter was on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas company that was being investigated for corruption? I mean, it has been in the news lately.
