Continuing with a recent string of anti-fossil fuel rhetoric being pushed by the White House, Biden revealed at an election eve rally he intends to eliminate ALL of America’s oil drilling amid the worst global energy crisis in decades.
“No more drilling. There is no more drilling,” Biden said to a climate activist while speaking in New York. “I haven’t formed any new drilling.”
The activist responded to Biden by noting there is still offshore drilling in the Antarctic and off of the Gulf of Mexico.
“That was before I was president,” Biden said. “We’re trying to work on that — get that done.”
While it’s become quite clear that the Biden regime and Democrats are looking to absolutely destroy the oil and gas industry in America, perhaps even more terrifying is what the United Nations is demanding from rich countries like the U.S.
At the same time Biden told supporters he was going to shut down all coal plants in America the United Nations sent a letter to U.S. leaders demanding “climate “justice.” They want wealthy countries – like the U.S. – to pay them roughly $2 trillion by 2030.
The call for reparations over so-called ‘climate change’ specifically excludes China from being responsible for any payments, despite the fact that their greenhouse gas emissions now exceed the entire rest of the developed world combined.
The demand came in the form of a new 100-page analysis, Finance for Climate Action.
“Rich countries should recognize that it is in their vital self-interest — as well as a matter of justice given the severe impacts caused by their high levels of current and past emissions — to invest in climate action in emerging market and developing countries,” said one of the report’s leads, economist Nicholas Stern.
U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has already called for more aggressive action to curb climate change, and it appears saddling the U.S. with a massive “reparations” payment might be part of that plan.
Guterres said, “We must answer the planet’s distress signal with action — ambitious, credible climate action.”
Guterres has also urged the world leaders to reconsider their “addiction” to fossil fuels, even as the world faces a troubling energy crisis.
“Today’s crises cannot be an excuse for backsliding or greenwashing. If anything, they are a reason for greater urgency, stronger action and effective accountability,” he remarked.
“Greenhouse gas emissions keep growing. Global temperatures keep rising. And our planet is fast approaching tipping points that will make climate chaos irreversible. We are on a highway to climate hell with our foot still on the accelerator.”
Guterres called on member states of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development to phase out the use of coal by 2030, to be followed by all other nations by 2040, and asserted that the United States and China “have a particular responsibility” to adopt such goals. “It is either a climate solidarity pact, or a collective suicide pact,” he added.
So while Joe Biden has already signaled a willingness to bow down to the United Nation’s disastrous calls for the elimination of coal, China has actually been burning more than ever to compensate for their own energy woes.
