Joe Biden landed a major endorsement from a "climate" group on Monday and signaled he is about to move even further to the left on the issue, vowing "environmental justice."

After the League of Conservation Voters endorsed Biden, he said:

"To achieve this aim, I have asked my campaign to commence a process to meaningfully engage with more voices from the climate movement — including environmental justice leaders and worker organizations, and collaborate on additional policies in areas ranging from environmental justice to new, concrete goals we can achieve within a decade, to more investments in a clean energy economy."

Biden has already pledged to impose the following Green New Deal-style diktats:

"We are going to get rid of fossil fuels," Biden said during a town hall in February.

Well I agree with you 100 percent. We should not be allowing plastic [bags]," Biden told a voter on January 8.

"Yeah, no, I would [Support A Carbon Tax]," Biden said during a CNN climate town hall on September 4.

Voter: "But like, what about, say, stopping fracking?"

Biden: "Yes."

Voter: "And stopping pipeline infrastructure?"

Biden: "Yes" said Biden on January 24.

Biden even told coal miners they should "learn how to program, for god's sake!"

"Anybody who can go down 300 to 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well...Give me a break! Anybody who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to program, for god's sake!” Biden said.

With that in mind, what else can Biden ban in his attempt to lure over people who voted for Bernie Sanders?
