Former Vice price dent Joe Biden made it clear on Thursday night the Democratic presidential primary debate, he would sacrifice the economic growth due to a boom in the oil and natural gas production, and potentially risk, the displacement of hundreds of thousands of workers, in order to combat climate change.

Moderator Tim Alberta asked: “Three consecutive American presidents have enjoyed it routes to the explosive economic growth due to a boom in the oil and natural gas production. As President, would you be willing to sacrifice that for growth to know that it could displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of workers in the interest of the transition to a green economy?”


“The answer is Yes,” the former Vice President.

But the front-Biden-runner in national polling in the democratic nomination race — stresses that “the possibility for the workers, is the transition to the high-paying jobs … real.”

“We are the only country in the world, the large, heavy crises and turns them into tremendous opportunities,” Biden.


The former Vice President an example supplied, as in the transition to a green energy economy, new jobs jobs lost would replace.

“Should not we the construction of a new highway in America, not the charging stations. We have the opportunity, up to 550,000 charging stations, so that we in the electric vehicle market, millions of jobs for people, their Installation, as well as ensure that we declared own the electric vehicle market,” Biden.

But he insisted that “we need to make sure we explain it to the people, the displaced, their skills will be needed for the new possibilities.”

The pro-Republican America Rising PAC, quickly picked up on Biden is the answer, comparing it to a line, the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 debate with then GOP candidate Donald Trump.

“The Biden line sounds familiar, isn’t it?,” America Rising Press Secretary Joe Gierut wrote.

Then he pointed out Clinton’s line from 2016, when she said: “we are people of the mountain, and the coal companies out of business.”


Biden — along with all the other Democratic presidential candidates-is calling for the transformation of the economy from fossil fuels and toward clean energy in order to dramatically lower carbon dioxide emissions. Their attitudes stand in sharp contrast with President Trump, a climate change skeptic, once called it a “hoax.” Trump stressed at the beginning of this year that America’s prosperity is based on the energy, and the “I’m not going to lose it, on dreams, on the wind mills.”
