Biden Channels AOC: ‘We’re All Dead’ If We Don’t Jail Fossil Fuel Execs

Presidential candidate Joe Biden claimed humans will be wiped out if they continue to use fossil fuels as a primary energy source, and suggested jailing executives at major oil companies to fix the problem.

Biden made the remarks at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

A supporter in the crowd engaged Biden in a conversation about climate change.

“If we don’t stop using fossil fuels -” the person began, to which Biden cut in, “We’re all dead.”

The comment was reminiscent of global warming extremist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) prediction that the world will end in 10 years if Americans don’t adopt her environmental plan, the Green New Deal.

Jail Oil Execs

Perhaps more remarkable than suggesting everyone is going to die by the billions in a Thanos-esque manner, is the fact that Biden also promoted the idea of jailing oil company executives to help stop the carnage.

“We have to set sort of guide rails down now, so between the years 2021 and 2030, it’s irreversible – the path we set ourselves on,” he claimed. “One of which is doing away with any substance for fossil fuels – number one.”

Wait, it gets better.

“Number two, holding them liable for what they have done,” Biden said of those executives helping to provide the leading source of fuel in our nation.

“Particularly in those cases where your underserved neighborhoods and – you know the deal, okay. And by the way, when they don’t want to deliver, put them in jail,” he said, adding, “I’m not joking about this.”

We believe him. He’s not joking. The leading Democrat candidate for President believes the world will end unless we start jailing people who work for oil companies.

Won’t Do Any Good

It’s funny, Ocasio-Cortez has previously said she’d never support Biden for the presidency because he wasn’t extreme enough regarding global warming.

“I’ll be damned if the same politicians who refused to act (in past decades) are going to try to come back today and say we need a ‘middle of the road’ approach to save our lives,” AOC said of Biden.

Now they’re sharing a harmonious message of jailing climate ‘deniers’ and suggesting that the sky is falling. Which sounds crazy to people living on planet Earth.

It also sounds crazy to folks at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) who have said none of these extreme measures will have any effect on the environment.

“Notwithstanding the assertions from [Green New Deal] proponents that it is an essential policy to confront purportedly adverse climate phenomena,” their April report reads, “the future temperature impacts of the zero-emissions objective would be barely distinguishable from zero.”

All of their idiotic climate plans will provide negligible results.

It’s going to be awfully hard to explain to business leaders why they’re in jail while nothing in the environment is actually changing.
