“And this is why we're facing the challenge that we're shifting from denial to actually trying to keep people from comprehending the benefits in solar energy. The benefits that wind power has, and the advantages of renewable energy. We need to be more precise and get better in our communication,” McCarthy said during an appearance at the Axios's “The Infodemic Age” event on Thursday.
Furthermore, McCarthy said Big Tech should take over to “stop allowing” people to propagate what they consider to as “misinformation” regarding Biden's climate change plan.
“And honestly, the tech companies need to stop allowing certain individuals to be used repeatedly to disseminate false information. This is the price fossil fuel firms pay,” McCarthy asserted.
“That's the thing that people who make money off fossil fuels, but don't make money, and aren't concerned about saving consumers money. They do. We must be smarter than that, and we must get tech companies to jump into the game.” she continued.
In the interview, McCarthy said that fossil energy companies and climate change are “a significant threat to public health.”
“Fossil fuels have actually created significant health challenges on our country, not just climate change, but we're talking about pollution that's impacting people's lives,” she stated.
In addition, McCarthy asserted last year that it was “ridiculous” to ask Americans to “sacrifice” for the climate because of the consequences of the Chinese coronavirus. However, her recent blaming on the oil and gas industry is coming as prices for gas reach another record-setting high of $5.016 per gallon.
Her comments also mirror the controversy over Biden's attempt to create a disinformation board. Based on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) documents obtained by Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA), “DHS had plans for its Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) to partner with Big Tech companies to monitor domestic speech about topics including election security and COVID-19,” according to Breitbart News.
“As it turns out, Tucker, the people that the Biden administration thinks are the real threat to America,” Tucker said. “It's more than the cartels of drugs. It's not threats from foreign countries. It's you. This is the American population,” Hawley said during his appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“If you have any questions regarding COVID, if you have any questions regarding COVID masks,, or questions about the COVID vaccine, this administration wants you to be closely monitored. It's true that the Disinformation Board was set up to target those who are in the know,” he added. “That's what the documents say.”
