Former Vice President Joe Biden flatly declared “I am committed to not raising money from fossil fuel executives” while attending a fundraiser hosted by the founder of a fossil fuel company.
A report out of Bloomberg says Biden attended a New York City campaign event on Thursday night hosted by Andrew Goldman, who helped start the Houston-based natural gas export facilities company, Western LNG. He is still an active investor in liquefied natural gas.
“I just want to be very clear to everyone here that I am committed to not raising money from fossil fuel executives and I’m not doing that here,” Biden reportedly said to the assembled donors.
Mr. Goldman must have wondered, ‘What am I doing here. Does he want me to give this money to Bernie?’
Biden said today, after he was at the fossil fuel investor’s fundraiser, that he is going to get rid of the fossil fuels in New Hampshire. What is he going to replace them with?

Joe was a bit deceptive two nights ago at the climate town hall when he claimed Mr. Goldman isn’t a fossil fuel executive.
