Biden: “We’re Not Supporting Clean Coal” 

At A Campaign Event In Maumee, Ohio In 2008, Biden Proclaimed That The Obama-Biden Ticket Does Not Support Clean Coal Or Any Coal Plants In America. QUESTION: “Wind and solar are flourishing here in Ohio, so why are you supporting clean coal? BIDEN: “We’re not supporting clean coal. Guess what, China is building two every week. Two dirty coal plants. And it’s polluting the United States, it’s causing people to die.” Question: “So will you support wind and solar technologies?” Biden: “Absolutely. Before anyone did. The first guy to introduce a global warming bill was me, 22 years ago. The first guy to support solar energy was me, 26 years ago, it came out of Delaware. But guess what? China’s going to burn 300 years of bad coal unless we figure out how to clean their coal up because it’s going to ruin your lungs and there’s nothing we can do about it. No coal plants here in America. Build them, if they are going to build them over there, make them clean, because they’re killing you.” (Sen. Joe Biden, Remarks At Campaign Event, Maumee, OH, 9/17/08)
