Joe Biden had a wavering stance on fracking prior to his election. He said that he would ban it, but reversed his stance in the debate. Many still wonder what will happen with this policy and worry about its environmental impacts. Let's break it down.
Yes, Biden will ban fracking
On the campaign trail, Biden told a voter “I want you to just take a look … I want you to look at my eyes. I guarantee you we’re going to end fossil fuel.” In March, he said “No more, no new fracking.”
The radical left will push Biden to ban fracking
Biden will lose control in the environmental sector once he takes office. The radical left has already pushed him to employ the Green New Deal, and Kamala Harris has made her anti-fracking stance abundantly clear.
While he is not "Pro-Fracking," Joe Biden has iterated that he will absolutely not ban fracking in its entirety. Mitigating does not equate to banning.
Biden won't ban fracking - it would harm the economy and reduce job numbers
Despite a few campaign blunders, Biden will not ban fracking, as clarified on numerous occasions. The natural gas and oil industry are key to the US economy and the renewable energy industry does not offer a fraction of the jobs -- statistics prove.
