Joe Biden’s nominee for a top financial regulator suggested that U.S. energy companies must go bankrupt as part of her “climate agenda.”

“The way we get rid of those carbon financiers is we basically starve them of their sources of capital.”

In a series of recent statements, Saule Omarova appeared to admit oil and gas have a competitive advantage over so-called “green” sources of energy. She said fossil fuels producers must go out of business before the “green” agenda can prevail.

Omarova received her education in the Soviet Union and has endorsed Soviet-style command economics in the past.
