One of Joe Biden’s senior advisors bragged this week about how the administration’s forced transition to green energy is causing people working in the fossil fuels industry to lose their jobs.
Speaking from the Aspen Ideas Festival, Biden’s climate advisor Gina McCarthy stated “We have opportunities now to transfer to clean energy in a way that grows thousands of jobs. We just had a recent report that is showing that all of the energy and the employment stats from last year. Clean energy is winning. Fossil fuels losing jobs.”

McCarthy is referring to a Department of Energy (DOE) report that reveals American oil producers lost more than 31,000 jobs last year, while American coal producers lost over 7,000 jobs.
McCarthy bragged that jobs had been created in green energy sectors, without explaining that those sectors fulfil less than 20 percent of the country’s energy needs.
