Joe Biden says climate change is the biggest issue for humanity
One of the issues that former vice president Joe Biden has detailed to be tackling in his platform and his possible policies is that of climate change. Over the weekend, Biden revealed that climate change is the biggest issue that is facing humanity today.
Speaking to former Obama administration adviser Dan Pfeiffer in an episode of Pod Save America that was released during the weekend, Biden said that climate change is the “number one issue” for humanity. The Democratic presidential nominee noted that the changing temperatures in the world will threaten humanity and that the world has an obligation to combat this problem.
“Climate change is the existential threat to humanity,” said Biden. “Unchecked, it is going to actually bake this planet. This is not hyperbole. It’s real. And we have a moral obligation.”
Biden has already outlined a $2 trillion plan to invest in clean energy for the transportation, electricity, and building industries as well as improving infrastructure and reducing carbon emissions. Scientists have constantly warned about the dangers of climate change. From animals in the polar regions losing habitats, climate change will also resort to the rising of sea levels and perhaps extinction of other species of animals due to an inability to adapt.
Touching on his plan, the former vice president said that this will provide a very big opportunity to create millions of jobs for Americans. “No one is going to build an oil or gas-fired electric plant. They’re going to build one that is fired by renewable energy. We have to invest billions of dollars in making sure that we’re able to transmit over our lines.”
Even as Biden has a good lead on Donald Trump over the polls and many of his fellow Democrats have successfully increased voter turnout, the former vice president does not appear to be celebrating just yet. In his ‘60 Minutes’ interview that aired Sunday, Biden said that Trump may still win a second term. The former vice president warned that Trump may still attempt to “de-legitimize” the elections next week, as Trump is known to often cast doubt on the voting process as of late.
