Biden says coal plants ‘all across America’ will be shut down, replaced with wind and solar

President Biden pledged on Friday that “we’re going to be shutting these plants (coal) down all across America” and that we will be shifting to wind power.

“I was in Massachusetts about a month ago on the site of the largest old coal plant in America,” Biden said at an event in Carlsbad, California, on Friday. “Guess what? It cost them too much money. They can’t count. No one is building new coal plants because they can’t rely on it. Even if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of the existence of the plant.”

“So it’s going to become a wind generation. And all they’re doing is it’s going to save them a hell of a lot of money and using the same transmission line that they transmitted the coal-fired electric on, we’re going to be shutting these plants down all across America and having wind and solar power, also providing tax credits to help families buy energy efficient appliances, whether it’s your refrigerator or your coffee maker, for solar panels on your home, weatherize your home, things that save an average, experts say, a minimum of $500 a year for the average family.”

The White House issued a “correction” on Saturday after Biden received critisism for his comments. “The President’s remarks yesterday have been twisted to suggest a meaning that was not intended; he regrets it if anyone hearing these remarks took offense,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in prepared statement in a news release put out Nov. 5.

The White House is trying to walk this back now to distract voters right before the midterms, but this has been their strategy since the beginning. It’s not the first time that Biden has threatened to shut down the fossil fuel industry. Back in 2020 he promised that the oil companies would have “no ability” to continue drilling.

During the debates in 2020 he also promised that the coal industry wouldn’t have the ability to build new coal plants, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone now.

The White House is now trying to spin this as it’s just cheaper to build wind mills and that is why the coal industry isn’t building any new plants. No. It’s because of the actions of this administration. It’s because of the new regulations under this administration that are making it so expensieve to operate. It’s because this administration has been pushing for ESG, which makes it impossible for the fossil fuel industry to get the funding that they need to build new plants.

Skyrocketing energy prices is by designed, because to quote former President Barack Obama, energy prices need to “necessarily skyrocket”.
