Biden Bans Mining in Minnesota’s Iron Range as State Democrats Pass Bill Banning Coal, Oil & Gas

President Joe Biden has banned mining in Minnesota’s Iron Range at the same time as the state’s Democrat lawmakers have passed a bill banning the use of coal, oil, and gas.

The historic legislation passed in the Minnesota House of Representatives on Thursday, despite the state being one of the coldest in the country.

Democrats hold a 70-64 advantage in the Minnesota State House of Representatives and a 34-33 advantage in the Minnesota State Senate.

Electricity prices are now expected to skyrocket after the passing of the bill.

The move comes at the same time that the Biden admin banned mining in the Iron Range.

The Iron Range is a Democrat-dominant working-class area in northeastern Minnesota.

The new energy infrastructure in Minnesota will ban mining here at home as Biden struck a deal with African nations who use child labor and China where they use slave labor.

All in the name of climate change – the new religion of the left.

The Minnesota House passed legislation after seven hours of debate late Thursday night, according to Alpha News.

The bill requires the state’s electricity grid to be 100% carbon-free in 17 years.

Republicans argued throughout the night that goal is an unrealistic timeline.

Many warn that it could endanger the lives of Minnesotans if the electricity grid fails after already causing bills to skyrocket.

They unsuccessfully offered several amendments to the bill, including lifting the state’s moratorium on new nuclear power plants, allowing for the use of carbon sequestration technologies, and delaying the standard to consider its impact on child and slave labor in the green energy supply chain.

“Frankly, what this bill will be doing today is making Minnesota reliant on nations around the globe that have no labor standards and no environmental standards,” Rep. Spencer Igo (R-Wabana Township) said during a press conference ahead of the debate.

“Minnesota in this bill will build a clean grid economy on the backs of child slaves in China and poor environmental regulations in Indonesia and the Congo.”

He said the resources to build a clean energy future are right in Minnesota’s backyard, yet the federal government has now banned mining on 250,000 acres of the Iron Range.

“The third-largest deposits of copper, nickel, and cobalt that exist in the known world are only 250 miles north of this Capitol,” he continued.

“Instead of investing in those resources … we have decided to export it around the world where carbon emissions will be 20, 25, or 30 times higher than if we were to do it here in Minnesota.”
