"I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me," Biden said in a speech in Pittsburgh.Fracking has been a key election issue, particularly in the crucial battleground state of Pennsylvania, which has a long history with the fossil fuel industry.

    CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: “I am not banning fracking.” VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. Biden has promised to ban fracking — repeatedly — as has his running mate. Biden said Monday — during a speech supposedly on violence: “I am not banning fracking. Let me say again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me.” The problem, for Biden, is that he explicitly promised to ban fracking during the second Democratic Party presidential primary debate on July 31, 2019, in Detroit, Michigan.

Just to clarify, would there be any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in a Biden administration? Biden: No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel. Joe Biden just claimed he doesnt want to ban fracking. But a few months ago he said there would be no place for fracking in a Biden Administration: "we...
