Yesterday The Washington Examiner posted an article about a recent comment by former Vice-President Joe Biden.
The article reports:
2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden said miners need to find “jobs of the future” when talking about transitioning the economy away from fossil fuels.
“Anybody who can go down 300 to 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well,” Biden said Monday during a campaign event in New Hampshire. “Anybody who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to program, for god’s sake!”
On Sunday, Biden also said he wanted to throw fossil fuel executives in prison for damaging the environment.
“Put them in jail,” he said. “I’m not joking about this.”
The comment came after the former vice president said that there would not be a single new coal plant made in the U.S. earlier this month. During the December Democratic debate, Biden said he was willing to end hundreds of thousands of jobs in the fossil fuel industry.
I can’t believe that anyone who listens to what he says would vote for this man.
