Greenpeace Issues Warning To Joe Biden: Join Us 

May 28, 2019

Former Vice President Joe Biden is expected to unveil an environmental plan any day now, and eco-groups are stepping up to warn Biden – join us or else.

Last week, Power The Future discussed the eco-left’s efforts to force Biden to adopt the “Green New Deal” in a Fox News op-ed. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently slammed Biden for reportedly considering a “middle ground” environmental plan, saying that was a “dealbreaker” for her.

We warned that the eco-left was trying to force Biden to move to the extreme left on energy issues, and it seemed to be working. Biden responded to Ocasio-Cortez by saying he’s “never been middle-of-the-road on the environment.”

Eco-groups are not letting up the steam.

Over the weekend, eco-extremist group “Greenpeace” weighed in, warning Biden that he must “take a strong position against fossil fuels.”

“Voters are going to be looking for candidates to make bold commitments and a fossil fuel phaseout,” said Charlie Jiang, a Greenpeace “climate campaigner.” “If all Joe Biden has is to point to his record, that’s not good enough.”

In other words, Greenpeace is saying that Biden’s record of helping throw 83,000 coal miners out of work is not good enough. In their eyes, he must dismantle every conventional energy job and throw hundreds of thousands out of work.

Hopefully, Joe Biden resists the pressure from these extreme groups, but it’s unlikely. The environmentalist movement has taken over the left, and they’re not giving up until Biden joins the fray.
