Saying that Moderate Joe Biden isn’t moderate is understatement. Frankly, when AOC said that she wasn’t interested in some middle-of-the-road green energy plan that Biden was likely to propose, she certainly didn’t do her research. Then again, that’s her habit. This article highlights how destructive Biden’s plan would be.

What’s most frightening is that Joe Biden’s plan is relatively moderate amongst Democrat presidential candidates’ plans. That being said, it’s impossible to see Biden’s plan gaining traction in parts of the Rust Belt that he needs to flip back to have a chance to win back the White House.

Let’s get started with the meat of this critique, starting with Mr. Driessen writing “[b]efore we destroy our energy and economic system, we need to be presented solid, irrefutable proof that we face an actual climate crisis – and be able to debate and cross examine those who make such claims.”

That won’t happen anytime soon. The Democrats’ idea of debating an issue is hurling invectives at those that disagree with them. There’s no sign that Democrats will stop that anytime soon. (When I say soon, I mean in the next 50 years.) Driessen continues:

Third, there’s nothing clean, green, renewable or sustainable about wind, solar or battery power. Those technologies require enormous amounts of land, concrete, steel and other raw materials – and many of their most critical materials are extracted and processed using child labor, at near-slave wages for adults, with few or no workplace safety rules, and with horrific effects on land, air and water quality.

I’m reminded of the story from a DFL state convention a few years ago. For the benefit of non-Minnesotans, DFL is Minnesotan for crazy liberals.

Some Iron Range Democrats wanted a plank in the DFL platform that said that the DFL supported mining. Twenty years ago, that wouldn’t have been controversial. That year, it was as controversial as saying that the Pope’s grandkids were offended. But I digress. The environmentalists started organizing against the motion by communicating with iPads and iPhones.

DFL Sen. Dave Tomassoni noted this in ridiculing environmentalists opposing the platform prank:

Tomassoni held up his cell phone, noting that virtually everyone at the convention, including the most ardent environmentalists, had one. “There are 39 minerals in this little baby,” Tomassoni said. “It may surprise some of the people here that these minerals don’t just drop out of the sky. They’re mined. What, is it okay if the mining is done by some 12-year-old in a third world country, but it’s wrong if we [Rangers] do it?”

Biden’s strategy is stupid. First, he’s essentially telling blue collar workers that he’d implement the same policies as President Obama did that drove blue collar workers into President Trump’s arms.

Next, Biden is then attempting to tell those blue collar workers, whose jobs he wants to eliminate, that he’ll fight for them. Right. The guy that just sold those hard hats out now wants them to trust him? Seriously? There’s a better chance that I’ll vote for the Democrat in the general election in 2020 than there is for these hard hats to trust Biden. Here’s what Biden said in October of 2015 on the subject of climate change:

Then again, considering what he’s said about the Hyde Amendment in the past vs. what he’s saying now that he’s running for president, it isn’t like you can trust him or any other Democrat on the subject.
