Joe Biden on Climate Change

On May 10, 2019 Biden tweeted a series of tweets stating his position on climate change: 

“I’m proud to have been one of the first to introduce climate change legislation. What I fought for in 1986 is more important than ever — climate change is an existential threat. Now. Today.

We need policies that reflect this urgency. I’ll have more specifics on how America can lead on climate in the coming weeks.”

Following this on June 4, 2019, Biden released his official climate plan saying: 

“From coastal towns to rural farms to urban centers, climate change poses an existential threat – not just to our environment, but to our health, our communities, our national security, and our economic well-being. It also damages our communities with storms that wreak havoc on our towns and cities and our homes and schools. It puts our national security at risk by leading to regional instability that will require U.S military-supported relief activities and could make areas more vulnerable to terrorist activities.”
