Some of the same, still-gainfully employed “journalists” who vociferously cheered business-crushing lockdowns amid the height of the coronavirus crisis, are now “climate climaxing” over President Joe Biden’s reportedly job-killing climate change agenda.

Take MSNBC’s Ali Velshi, who spent much of last spring trashing the struggling business owners who dared to protest coronavirus lockdown orders.



This Saturday, on his eponymously named MSNBC program, “Velshi,” he proudly celebrated Biden’s climate agenda and claimed it would somehow create jobs.

Joe Biden promised to lead a White House with an aggressive stance towards climate change. While many conservatives balk at the issue, his plan to transition to clean energy should present millions of brand new jobs in the future,” he said.

Meanwhile, until those jobs are created — if they ever are — millions of working class Americans will be left unemployed, including the estimated 1000+ who lost their jobs last week after Biden revoked the construction permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

But Velshi, who remains gainfully employed amid the coronavirus pandemic with a likely hefty salary given his position, didn’t seem concerned.

Continuing his remarks, he brought on environmental journalist Betsy Rosenberg to hear her take on Biden’s otherwise radical plans.

She began by claiming that “we have to change our whole economy and greenify it,” even if that means teaching oil/gas workers how to code.

We have to change our whole economy and greenify it. Perhaps we can retrain the oil rig workers because they’re used to being out on the ocean and have them build wind turbines. Perhaps we can take coal workers, and maybe teaching them to code is a stretch, but we can teach them to build them the highspeed rails that we need,” she said.

As of Saturday, Jan. 30th, there wasn’t any record of the now-unemployed Keystone XL oil pipeline workers being offered free training by the Biden administration. But, like Velshi, Rosenberg didn’t seem concerned about such apparently trifling facts.

Listen to her discussion with Velshi below:

“This is a new day. It’s all changing, and we have to create those jobs, and it’s up to the people who’re going into the world now to keep this in mind. Because look, we’re here in terms of sustainability in the country, we need to go here in terms of getting a stable climate back and restoring our oceans, habitat, you name it. It’s an epic challenge,” Rosenberg continued.

It’s going to take all of us and so much work, time, energy, focus. But the fact that we’re finally treating it as an emergency, and we finally have leadership, it’s truly an exciting moment, Ali. It’s epic. It’s like a week of climate climaxing! It was just, like, the hits just kept on coming, almost too much to process, but not complaining,” she added.

She wasn’t wrong about how the “hits” just keep on coming:

And apparently, these “hits” are worth “climaxing” over …

Velshi and Rosenberg weren’t alone in their praise for Biden’s agenda. This week MSNBC host Katy Tur proudly touted Biden’s “big step forward” toward “climate policy,” while NBC host Craig Melvin said these polices are “something we need.”

Meanwhile, major broadcast networks reportedly dismissed, downplayed or outright ignored the job losses that Biden’s activities have engendered.

One traditionally Democrat group of individuals, who haven’t been able to ignore the pain and suffering, is unions. After Biden revoked the construction permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline last week, multiple unions that’d previously endorsed him issued scathing statements lashing out at the president for screwing them over.

“In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1,” Mark McManus, the president of the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters, said in one of those scathing statements.

“Sadly, the Biden Administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work. For the average American family, it means energy costs will go up and communities will no longer see the local investments that come with pipeline construction,” he added.

Even some Native American tribes have complained about Biden’s agenda.

After he issued a 60-day moratorium on new oil/natural gas leases and drilling permits last week, the Ute tribe slammed the order as a “direct attack on our economy, sovereignty, and our right to self-determination.”
