Kamala Harris Reveals that She Wants to Ban Fracking

Published

On Wednesday night, Senator Kamala Harris said that there was “no question” she was for for fracking bans during CNN’s climate town hall.

Climate activist Jessie Bluedorn questioned Harris on whether she would be on board with a federal ban on fracking during her first few days in office if she is elected president.

“There is no question I’m in favor of banning of fracking,” Harris declared. “Starting with what we can do on day one around public lands and then there has to be legislation, but yes. This is something I’ve taken on in California, I have a history of working on this issue.”

“And to your point, we have to just acknowledge that the residual impact of fracking is enormous in terms of the impact on the health and safety of communities,” Harris said as she expanded on her anti-fracking stances.

The host Erin Burnett followed up with a question about offshore drilling bans.

“Yes and again I’ve worked on that,” Harris stated. “You can talk to the folks in Santa Barbara about the work I’ve done there where it’s a big problem, but it’s a big problem in many areas of our country.”

Right before the climate town hall, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders called on all 2020 presidential hopefuls to get behind a federal fracking ban.

“Any proposal to avert the climate crisis must include a full fracking ban on public and private lands,” Sanders declared in a statement. “Fracking is a danger to our water supply. It’s a danger to the air we breathe. It causes earthquakes. It’s highly explosive. Safe fracking is, like clean coal, pure fiction. But, most importantly, methane from natural gas contributes to climate change and is setting us on a path to disaster. When we are in the White House, we will end the era of fossil fuels, and that includes fracking.”

The 2020 Democratic Party has solidified itself as the party of radical environmentalism. These campaigns to micro-manage the energy sector are clear assaults on property rights and would erase many of the deregulation gains made under the Trump administration.

By floating trial balloons such as the Green New Deal, the Left is shifting the goalpost on the issue of environmental policy.
