Why Biden calls Trump a 'climate arsonist'

Humanity is said to have just 10 years left to start seriously tackling the climate crisis before passing the ‘point of no return’ with multiple-degree temperature increases, rising sea levels and increasingly disastrous wildfires, hurricanes, floods and droughts predicted.

Scientists say the US is far off the path of what is necessary for the nation and the world to avoid catastrophic global heating, particularly as in the past four years, president Trump has shredded environmental protections for American lands, animals and people.

As part of our climate countdown series, the Guardian’s Emily Holden looks at the issue and examines why the Democratic presidential nominee calls his rival a ‘climate arsonist’

    I am strongly disagree with her opinion about OIL industry!!! I would rather pay .99c/gallon for American gas THAN $2.99+ for gas from Kuwait or other countries from other side of the world.

    'It's science!' You Democrats, why do ignore science when it comes to abortion?
    Your selection of science is like cherry-picking facts.

    There actually aren't more fires in California; the recent difference is that they're simply causing more destruction. Trump was correct in saying it was due to forest mis-management. The amount of timber taken from Californian forests has dropped by 80% in 25 years, largely due to environmental controls. California has environmental taxes, but prefers to spend those on rail projects rather than managing the fuel load in forests by tree thinning, brush removal and removal of diseased trees. Global warming may well be happening but to blame the recent destruction from forest fires on global warming is simply silly, that is simply Californian politicians trying to deflect responsibility

    Neither Trump or Biden will do enough to tackle climate change. Biden has proudly declared himself to be pro-fracking ffs

    Climate change is real, but trying to blame Trump for it all is BS. Joe only gives a F now because he wants to get elected. Do you see how he flipped on fracking when pressed. Lol
