Sanders: Oil & Gas Industry “Criminal”

During Tuesday night’s Democratic debates, climate alarmist and committed socialist Bernie Sanders slammed the fossil fuel industry for its “short-term profits” that are “destroying this planet.” “We’ve got to ask ourselves a simple question: What do you do with an industry that willingly, for billions of dollars in short-term profits, is destroying this planet? I say that is criminal activity that cannot be allowed to continue.” His fellow candidates, of course, chomped at the bit promoting a “green industrial policy” except no word on how to make it affordable or feasible short of sending us back into the Stone Age.

Democratic hopefuls once again only discussed their climate plans briefly Tuesday night, but the discussion managed to span issues including the Flint, Mich., drinking water crisis to a declaration by Sen. Bernie Sanders that the fossil fuel industry is criminal.
“We’ve got to ask ourselves a simple question: What do you do with an industry that willingly, for billions of dollars in short-term profits, is destroying this planet. I say that is criminal activity that cannot be allowed to continue,” Sanders (I-Vt.) said according to a report by POLITICO.
The response came after more than an hour without a specific climate question.
