Biden puts climate change at center of presidential campaign, calling Trump a ‘climate arsonist’
(Inside Climate News, 14 Sep 2020) His remarks came as the president traveled to California, where massive wildfires have consumed more than 3 million acres in 2020 and killed 24 people.
With three Western states ablaze and a hurricane bearing down on the Gulf Coast, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden assailed President Donald Trump for science denial Monday in an unprecedented move by a candidate to shift a U.S. presidential campaign's focus to climate change.
After weeks of Trump running his campaign on a "law and order" theme and arguing that a Biden presidency would make Americans unsafe, Biden turned the tables on Trump, as the president's plane descended through the smoke-filled skies of Sacramento to visit the capital of the state hardest hit by the unfolding wildfire disaster.
Biden argued that Trump's inaction and dismissal of science has left Americans vulnerable to climate catastrophe, just as it heightened risks from the coronavirus pandemic.
