Campaign Press Release - FACT: Joe Biden's Radical Energy Plan Will Destroy Fracking and Kill American Jobs

October 07, 2020

Biden has repeatedly said he would dismantle the U.S. fracking industry and jeopardize millions of energy jobs.

Over the last year, Biden repeatedly made it clear that fracking jobs would be eliminated, stopped, phased out, ended, and sacrificed in the name of his radical anti-energy agenda.

Biden's war on fracking would decimate states like Pennsylvania, where a fracking ban would decimate 609,000 jobs, and New Mexico, where fracking workers are terrified of a "Biden ban."

  • Biden once told an activist to "look at my eyes" and told her "I guarantee you we're going to end fossil fuel."

Joe Biden has repeatedly expressed his support for wiping out fracking jobs and the fossil fuel industry:

  • Biden admitted during a debate last year that there would be "no place" for fossil fuels, including fracking, in a Biden presidency, and that fossil fuels would be "eliminated."

  • During a debate with Senator Bernie Sanders in March, Biden exclaimed "so am I!" after Senator Sanders said he was campaigning on "stopping fracking as soon as we possibly can."

  • Biden agreed with a supporter in January that fracking needed to be "stopped."

  • Biden said in February that he wants to "phase out" fossil fuels such as fracking.

  • Biden pledged to a supporter that he would "end" fossil fuels.

  • Biden admitted he would "sacrifice" "hundreds of thousands" of fossil fuel jobs in pursuit of his anti-energy agenda.

Biden even picked a vice presidential nominee who has flat out she is "in favor of banning fracking."

Biden has proposed completely eliminating oil, gas, and coal from the U.S. power grid by 2035. He cannot honestly tell voters that the 10.3 million American jobs supported by the fossil fuel industry will continue to exist under his anti-energy policies.
