Promising economic revitalization via “clean renewable energy" if elected president, Hillary Clinton declared that she would "put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business."
Speaking at the CNN-hosted Democratic town hall event in Columbus, Ohio Sunday night, Clinton sanctioned the narrative of anthropogenic global warming in calling for the cessation of consumption of fossil fuels.
“I’m the only candidate which has a policy about to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country, because we’re gonna put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business,” promised Clinton.
Seemingly noticing the gaffe, Clinton’s cadence changed as she asked, “Right, Tim?”
Without providing details as to how she intends to do so, Clinton committed to replacing jobs continually being lost via the Obama Administration’s deliberate moves to shut down the coal industry.
“Now we’ve gotta move away from coal, and all the other fossil fuels,” continued Clinton, pushing a neo-Luddite approach to national energy policies in line with the alarmist narrative of AGW.
Lowered expectations over material standards of living are already being pushed by the left in the form of “micro-apartments” by New York City municipal politicians and recommendations for eating insects by the United Nations.
Bruce Nilles, head of the “environmentalist” Sierra Club’s subsidiary Beyond Coal, promised to further transition the socialist political campaign against coal towards oil and natural gas over time.
