The Democrats and the “Green New Deal” – bets are it will turn into a “New Democrat Disaster”. The Deal is a set of goals guiding the actions of President Joe Biden. These goals could be devastating to the energy and mining industries.

“Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face,” says the Democratic National Committee’s web site. “It powerfully captures two basic truths, which are at the core of his plan: (1) the United States urgently needs to embrace greater ambition on an epic scale to meet the scope of this challenge, and (2) our environment and our economy are completely and totally connected.”

If our country is serious about green energy, supplying the large amounts of minerals required to build green devices is going to be difficult. Minerals such as copper and lithium to power electric powered devices such as electric vehicles.

This supply will be accessed via mining, requiring thousands of miners. President Biden is planning to transform our energy systems, which will devastate our oil and gas industries. The promise is that the new green energy industry will create tens of thousands of new jobs. Wonderful, but where will these jobs be – on U.S. or foreign soil?

Sadly, but expectedly, Biden and congressional Democrats are planning to send these mining jobs overseas. The jobs are not available because of the Democrat’s decision to close the mines by claiming the land they are on.

This occurred in Utah on the Colt Mesa mountain. President Donald J. Trump made the mountain available for mineral mining by removing it from the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. This was done to access the cobalt within, which is available at greater concentrations than similar mines, such as those of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Biden administration already has plans to extend the border of the monument around Colt Mesa, taking jobs away from the miners. The COVID-19 pandemic, which has lasted for over a year and caused national lock-down, should have taught the Democrat party that our nation needs to become self-sufficient.

Making minerals within our country unavailable and instead paying for them to be imported from overseas could turn into a disaster. In the event foreign supplies dry up we will be left in a lurch, not being prepared to take up the slack.

Having the Left-side of our government destroy thousands of jobs and leave our country vulnerable is disgraceful.
