Radical Green Group 350 Action Endorses Biden

September 24, 2020

Not that we needed another reminder that the Biden/Harris ticket is the most extreme, environmentally progressive platform of any presidential ticket before, but they just scored the endorsement of radical green group 350 Action.

According to The Hill:

350 Action, which gained prominence with its fierce opposition to the Keystone XL oil pipeline and efforts to stop fossil fuel extraction, said Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), his running mate, were running on a progressive climate platform and will be able to meet the growing challenges posed by climate change. But the group said it would continue to pressure the Democratic ticket to be “aggressive” in tackling the issue. 

350 Action North America Director Tamara Toles O’Laughlin said, “In the primaries, we pushed the Biden campaign hard for people and the planet. And with time and relentless pressure, we have seen the campaign take up the demands of our movement. We believe that Biden and Harris can continue to be pushed towards an aggressive climate agenda.”

It’s no secret Biden has inched further left over the course of his campaign, succumbing to the pressure of climate activists within his party.

He continues to choose progressive advisors to have his ear on issues, having named Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), author of the Green New Deal, to co-chair his campaign’s climate task force. And let us not forget his running mate, Kamala Harris, said there was “no question” she’d ban hydraulic fracturing last September.

Biden’s $2 trillion climate proposal marked the first time global warming has emerged as a central plank in the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign, which his supporters don’t even see as being progressive enough. We can only fear what a Biden White House would look like, because there is no doubt the needle will move even farther left than “moderate” Joe already has.
