The internet never forgets, even when the masters of the universe appear to be doing everything in their power to suppress narratives which hurt Joe Biden’s political campaign.
Despite Joe Biden’s rhetoric on the need to end fossil fuel extraction, and electrify transport, he seems to personally burn an awful lot of fossil fuel in his private jet trips. Perhaps Joe Biden’s vision includes an exception for important people like himself, who will still be full allowed access to the conveniences of a fossil fuel powered civilisation.
Despite early suggestions of a walkback, Joe Biden now appears to be doubling down on his promise to destroy US fossil fuel jobs, by naming climate change the “number one issue facing humanity”.
I think it is fair to say Presidential wannabe Joe Biden has stirred up some strong feelings over his plan to “transition” the jobs of millions of ordinary Americans.
During Thursday’s Presidential debate, President Biden made a clear statement that he intends to transition away from the oil industry. My question – what part does Burisma play in this plan?
According to Michael Mann, President Trump has emboldened world leaders like Australia’s Scott Morrison to be less ambitious on climate change. But why does Mann think Biden would make such a difference, given the Biden family’s high level involvement in non-US fossil fuel giants like Burisma?
A rare admission from New York Times that defying expert advice, and closing borders in the face of the Covid outbreak was the right thing to do. According to the NYT, the World Health Organization’s bad advice was based on politics, economics and speculative mathematical models not based on real world data, which turned out to be deeply flawed.
According to Joe Biden, the fires raging on the West Coast of the USA are a sign that climate change is an existential threat to our way of life. However Biden is ignoring decades of West Coast forest management failures.
“I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me,” the former vice president said. Biden made the comments in a state largely dependent on natural gas development, and more than four months after saying at a Democratic debate in March that he will be ending new fracking projects.
Joe Biden’s promise to provide a seamless transition from fossil fuel jobs to renewable energy jobs is falling flat with the nation’s energy workers.
