Biden calls for ‘no new fracking’ at CNN primary debate
Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s unexpectedly strong anti-fracking comments at Sunday’s presidential primary debate rattled industry supporters but failed to win over Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The Green New Deal sponsor tweeted that the Biden campaign’s $1.7 trillion climate-change initiative was “not enough,” adding that “[i]nadequate climate plans are a form of denialism over how bad this problem really is.”…
JunkScience’s Steve Milloy, part of the Trump EPA transition team, said that a fracking ban would “cause economic, social and geopolitical chaos.”
“Although Biden’s campaign is trying to walk back his vow to ban fracking, voters should take the promised ban seriously,” Mr. Milloy said in a statement. “There is no question that the same radicals who destroyed the coal industry during the Obama Administration would target fracking for destruction under a Biden administration.”
