Biden complicit in climate-related ‘mass death’, activists say

Climate activists continued their protest outside the White House on Wednesday, with an activist group suggesting President Biden is “an accomplice in mass death.”

Activists put up a 60-foot sign to make it look like a flood was engulfing the White House.

“Activists deployed a 60ft FLOOD in front of @whitehouse to show #climatecrisis is NOW,” tweeted Washington, DC activist group Arm in Arm 4 Climate DC. The organization has claimed that 30 people have died in Tennessee this summer and 40 people have died in the New York area, apparently from climate-related causes.

“The #climate change is HERE and to do nothing is to be complicit in the @potus mass death,” the organization added.

Biden has championed the cause of climate activists, issuing numerous executive orders from his first day in office.


Despite this, activists have flocked to the White House this week, in part to protest against the expansion of the Line 3 pipeline from Canada to the US Midwest. A new segment of the line opened on October 1. While Biden blocked the Keystone XL pipeline, he did not block Line 3.

Climate protesters vandalized a statue of former President Andrew Jackson and invaded the White House on Monday, which they commemorated as Indigenous Peoples Day.

The Build Back Fossil Free coalition began the five-day protest on Monday, aimed at pressuring the administration to take more action on climate change by declaring a national emergency and ending fossil fuel projects.

Siqiñiq Maupin, director of senior coalition member Sovereign Inupiat for a Living Arctic, told Fox News protesters wanted Biden to keep his campaign promises.

“People are dying right now from the pollutants, toxins, climate catastrophes that are happening – and we have to stop the damage,” Maupin wrote. “Biden’s election was about climate change; his entire election was about training people of color and Indigenous people.”

Activists delivered a letter to the White House on Tuesday urging Biden to block Line 3, the Minnesota Reformer reported.

“You have declared a Code Red climate emergency, stating that ‘the nation and the world are in peril.’ We agree,” the letter to Biden reads. “It is high time to act on your statement.”

Signatories to the letter include Honor the Earth, MN350, TakeAction Minnesota and the Minnesota Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Cleaning company Seventh Generation, Earthjustice, and Indigenous Environmental Network also signed on.


Neither the Build Back Fossil Free coalition nor Arm in Arm 4 Climate immediately responded to Fox News’ request for comment.
