‘Put them in jail’: Biden demands fossil fuel execs be locked up — But he outspent Dem rivals flying in private jets & continues to fly in them

August 2020

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.

Biden: “We’re all dead” if we don’t stop using fossil fuels.

Noam Chomsky: Biden on climate is ‘farther to the left than any Democratic candidate in memory’ – Biden’s climate agenda was ‘largely written by the Sunrise Movement’ – When Biden’s revised climate policy was unveiled, it was celebrated by many progressives as a real shift. – Noam Chomsky declared Biden on climate as “farther to the left than any Democratic candidate in memory,” because, he said, the agenda was “largely written by the Sunrise Movement and strongly endorsed by the leading activists on climate change.”

EIA data 2018: Wind & solar met 3% of U.S. energy after $50 billion in subsidies – Fossil Fuels 81%

More solar jobs is a curse, not a blessing – ‘Underscores how wasteful, inefficient & unproductive solar power is’
(This tally does not include electricity generated by nuclear, hydroelectric and geothermal power plants.)

* 398,000 natural gas workers = 33.8% of all electricity generated in the United States in 2016

* 160,000 coal employees = 30.4 % of total electricity

* 100,000 wind employees = 5.6% of total electricity

* 374,000 solar workers = 0.9% of total electricity

It’s even more glaring when you look at the amount of electricity generated per worker. Coal generated an incredible 7,745 megawatt-hours of electricity per worker; natural gas 3,812 MWH per worker; wind a measly 836 MWH for every employee; and solar an abysmal 98 MWH per worker.

In other words, producing the same amount of electricity requires one coal worker, two natural gas workers – 12 wind industry employees or 79 solar workers.

Joe Biden Doubles Down: Seeks ‘Net-Zero’ & End Fossil Fuels by 2050, Find ‘Alternatives’ for Laid Off American Energy Workers

“We have to move toward net-zero emissions,” Biden said. “The first place to do that by the year 2035 is in energy production. By 2050, totally.”

‘Eventually’: Biden Tries To Clarify Debate Comment That He Will Transition Away From Oil – ‘Not getting rid of fossil fuels for a long time…It will not be gone for…probably 2050’In response to a question from a CNN reporter, Biden said: “Eventually we’re going to have to [get rid of] oil, but we’re not getting rid of fossil fuels. We’re getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels, but we’re not getting rid of fossil fuels for a long time… It will not be gone for … probably 2050,” Fox News reported.

Biden ban fracking

On January 24, 2020, speaking to a New Hampshire voter, Biden said he would stop fracking. The woman voter asked, “But like, what about, say, stopping fracking?”
Biden answered, “Yes.”
Woman voter: “And stopping pipeline infrastructure?”
Biden: “Yes.”

In the July 2019 debate on CNN, Biden said, “We would make sure it’s eliminated,” in response to a question about whether his administration would find any place for “fossil fuels, including coal and fracking.”

On March 15, 2020, a Democratic presidential debate between Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders was hosted by CNN: 

Biden: “No more, no new fracking.”
Also in that debate, Biden stated, “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, end, number one.”

Marc Morano, publisher of the influential Washington DC-based Climatedepot.com, responds, “Joe Biden’s version of the Green New Deal will include a redux from the Obama Administration of ‘investing’ in ‘green’ energy. This will once again sink billions of taxpayers’ dollars into picking winners and losers in the energy industry. We can expect a new round of boondoggles like the failed Solyndra ‘investments’. More money pumped into a future attempt to alter the climate. The only thing we can be certain of is that the climate will not be impacted.” …

“Having wealthy nations ‘pay’ poor nations not to develop their natural resources as the countries see fit is not something to brag about being a ‘champion’ of. In many cases, paying off countries not to develop their natural resources also leads to enriching politicians while the citizens continue to suffer from lack of development and economic growth.”

Steve Milloy: “The only hope the oil-and-gas industry would have in a Biden administration is that there is no substitute for fracking. Power plants could switch out of coal and into natural gas during the 2010s, but they won’t be able to switch out of natural gas and back into coal during the 2020s. On the other hand, American politics are more irrational now than they were during the Obama years. And it isn’t clear that Biden administration regulators would care about relevant realities. A fracking ban? No. Death by a thousand cuts? Bank on it.”

“During a town hall meeting Thursday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden again assured shale producers that he wouldn’t ban fracking if elected. Then, in virtually the same breath, he touted his $2 trillion clean-energy plan, which aims to edge natural gas out of the power mix within 15 years…Biden has been careful not to make an enemy of the industry, especially in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania, home to the largest U.S. shale-gas field. His policies may even, in the short-term, support the gas market.”

“Biden’s goal of a carbon-neutral grid would severely curb, if not destroy, gas’s share of the pie in favor of cheaper, cleaner renewables.”
