Pete Buttigieg Ambushed by Climate Activists at Speaking Event

Biden Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was ambushed by climate change activists while speaking at an event in Baltimore on Wednesday.

The left-wing climate change activists were demanding an end to fossil fuels.

Buttigieg appeared to play along with them at first before things got serious, and he was chased on stage.

FOX News reported:

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was chased from an event in Baltimore on Tuesday evening after left-wing climate activists stormed the stage and demanded he stop fossil fuel infrastructure projects.

Buttigieg was forced to depart the event — a Maryland policy forum at the city’s Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall hosted by local outlet Baltimore Banner — after more than a dozen activists with the group Climate Defiance stormed the stage yelling slogans.

The protesters called on Buttigieg to reject two proposed oil transport projects, the Sea Port Oil Terminal and Texas GulfLink, under review by his agency’s Maritime Administration.

“Petro Pete is a coward,” Climate Defiance tweeted following the event.

“As we write, he is ramming down our throats the Sea Port and GulfLink oil terminals – each worse than Keystone.”

“We must resist him with all we’ve got. And we will.”

“Your DOT just approved the Seaport Oil Terminal, a project that will have 80 coal plants’ worth of greenhouse gas emissions and will worsen air quality in areas that already live in cancer clusters,” one of the Climate Defiance activists told Buttigieg on stage.

“This is about environmental racism, and it’s about climate impacts this project will have.”

“Will you commit to stopping these projects?”

Watch the moment Buttigieg was ambushed by climate activists:

Last month, Buttigieg admitted he struggles to find a reliable electric vehicle charger while traveling.

Buttigieg’s complaint comes as the Biden administration launched an effort to revamp the more than 6,000 charging stations that are “temporarily unavailable.”

“We’ve definitely had that experience,” Buttigieg said about trying to find an electric vehicle charger while traveling.

“Matter of fact, had it just a few days ago at a park in town.”

“Imagine what it would be like if you couldn’t be sure when you pulled into a gas station that you’d actually get gas out of it,” he added.

“This is about making sure that access to charging is as reliable as access to fuel is today for gas cars, and we know that that’s not just a question of quantity but also one of quality.”

In August, the Biden’s administration announced $100 million in federal funds to repair “existing but non-operational, electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.”

“Thanks to President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, we are building up a national EV charging network with chargers Made in the USA,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said in a statement.
