In response to the various climate deniers that called on him to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, Vice President Joe Biden recalled back to 1994 when the Arctic sea ice was said to be going “straight to Siberia”.
But it turns out that actually, while the Arctic is not disappearing yet, the climate change has begun and for the first time the Arctic is becoming the fastest growing area of the Earth, with the Arctic Ocean set to be covered with ice in the summer months for two and half times the size of the contiguous United States.
The real pollution alarmist when it comes to their straw man of Biden is senator Cory Booker who famously compared American natural gas interests to Nazi Germany in a radio interview. He has subsequently apologized.
It is almost impossible for Biden to win the votes of Republicans, as I myself have pointed out here on the Guardian. But he is the most sensible and the least dishonest of the Democrats.
Last week he told a climate change rally, as reported by the Huffington Post, “The future depends on young people saying ‘no’.”
Meaning: “We have to get this stuff passed.” Biden also told a reporter that the GOP would be thrown out of office by then if it does not moderate its climate denial.
The latest poll data show that in six of seven states former Vice President Biden won by double digits in his own 2008 election, he is the second most popular Democrat as he heads to the final week of his presidential campaign, after only Bernie Sanders who also win nearly all of his states.
President Trump, on the other hand, is almost universally unpopular. A recent CNN poll shows him to be the least popular President in history, with a global disapproval rating of 71%.
