Crenshaw criticizes Kerry's advice to laid off pipeline workers


Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) criticized climate envoy John Kerry Wednesday for suggesting that laid-off workers in the fossil fuels industry can get jobs in clean energy.

“John Kerry – worth hundreds of millions — telling blue-collar workers to just ‘go to work to make the solar panels.’ By the way, solar will pay on average $20K less than oil and gas jobs,” Crenshaw tweeted on Wednesday. “John Kerry thinks you should just shutup and accept it. No.”

Crenshaw was not the only congressman to push back on Kerry’s remarks. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) criticized Kerry and the Biden administration for its anti-fossil fuel production policies as part of Biden’s plan to fight climate change.

“John Kerry’s message to the tens of thousands of Americans who lost their jobs thanks to the Biden administration: go make solar panels. Where is the empathy that Joe Biden promised in his inauguration?” Cotton tweeted on Wednesday.

If the Democrats like Biden and Kerry really cared about the people being laid off they would have started by working on creating the jobs they expect these people to take.  The fact is that those jobs do not exist and likely will never exist in great numbers because wing and solar energy are not comparable to fossil fuels in terms of energy and reliability.
