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.
THIS IS YET ANOTHER PATENTLY ABSURD STATEMENT FROM BIDEN:
“Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed during a Sunday campaign event that “we’re all dead” if fossil fuels continue to be used as one of the world’s primary energy sources.”

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.
Climate change is here + we’ve got a deadline: 12 years left to cut emissions in half.
A #GreenNewDeal is our plan for a world and a future worth fighting for.
How did we get here?
What is at stake?
And where are we going?

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.
