Former vice president and 2020 election candidate Joe Biden said he is willing to sacrifice hundreds of thousands of oil and gas workers’ jobs to combat climate change.
He made the statement Thursday, Dec. 19 during the Democratic debate, after one of the moderators told him that for decades the United States had enjoyed “periods of explosive economic growth” partly due to increases in oil and gas production.
Biden was then asked, “Would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even though you know it could displace thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of workers?”
“The answer is yes,” Biden said, adding that it is “the opportunity for those workers to transition to high paying jobs” without giving specific details of the jobs that would be available to the multitude of displaced Americans.
“We have enormous opportunities,” continued the former vice president. “There are so many things we can do. We have to make sure we explain it to those people who are displaced—that their skills are going to be needed for the new opportunities,” he concluded.
Has climate change been proven to be man-made?
It should be noted that more and more people are denouncing allegedly man-made global warming as a fraud driven by “green energy” mega-companies in their attempt to take over the energy market.
Months ago, former EU MP Isabelle Attard pointed out that Greta Thunberg from Sweden, who has become an icon in the fight against alleged climate change is being used as “an instrument by green capitalism.”
To get an idea of the amount of money being tossed around the controversial issue of the climate change led by this teenager with Asperger’s syndrome, Ingmar Rentzhog, founder of the start up We Don’t Have Time, earned almost a million euros (approximately $1.1 million) using the young woman, according to Reporterre.
The Spanish political party Vox also referred to Greta Thunberg as “an impostor” and “a puppet girl” who put undue pressure on nations, after she spoke at the Sept. 23 climate summit in New York at the U.N.
“She’s the umpteenth child puppet to coerce Western society into frying regulations and taxes,” Vox determined on its Twitter account.
Fear and guilt as the main motivators
On the other hand, Patrick Moore, former president of Greenpeace, said that the narrative of man-made global warming, later transformed into that of “climate change,” is an invention of politicians and elites to control the population through fear and guilt.
“Fear has been used all through history to gain control of people’s minds and wallets and all else, and the climate catastrophe is strictly a fear campaign—well, fear and guilt—you’re afraid you’re killing your children because you’re driving them in your SUV and emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and you feel guilty for doing that. There’s no stronger motivation than those two,” Moore explained.
“Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace, ‘The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it’s Fake Science. There is no climate crisis, there’s weather and climate all around the world, and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life,'” tweeted President Donald Trump at the time.
And Moore is not alone. Years ago, 31,487 U.S. scientists, including 9,029 with doctorates, signed a petition, the Global Warming Petition Project, saying,”There are no experimental data to support the hypothesis that increases in human hydrocarbon use or in atmospheric carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are causing or can be expected to cause unfavorable changes in global temperatures, weather, or landscape,” concluded the more than 30,000 scholars.
“There is no reason to limit human production of CO2, CH4 and other minor greenhouse gases as has been proposed,” they added, urging the U.S. government to reject the Kyoto Protocol agreements.
