The liberal green groups ?are celebrating the “victory” of putting America’s major coal producers out of business — to say nothing of the tens of thousands of miners placed in unemployment lines. Several thousand more mining jobs were lost last month.
Now to get their next homicidal high, the leftists have turned their ambitions on the oil and natural gas industries.
Here is how Lena Moffitt, director of the Sierra Club’s Dirty Fuels campaign, recently explained the grand, green vision:
“We are doing everything we can to bring the same expertise that we brought to taking down the coal industry and coal-fired power in this country to taking on gas in the same way … to ensure that we’re moving to a 100 percent clean energy future.”
Wow! This is the agenda of lunatics. Scarier still is that the three most prominent democrats in America today aren’t far behind in this maniacal mindset of killing off America’s fossil fuels. President Obama says we have to shift to a “keep it in the ground” strategy when it comes to all fossil fuels. Bernie Sanders is the sponsor of a Senate bill that would effectively ban all oil and gas drilling on federal lands.
Hillary Clinton isn’t far behind in the mania. Right off her promise to kill off all remaining coal jobs, she declared global warming “the defining challenge of our time” and hopes for a future when there is no drilling for oil and gas. This would end America’s access to an estimated $50 trillion of energy resources.
