Say, Could Sheriff Joe’s Views On ‘Climate Change’ Kill His Candidacy?

Obviously, Democrats are just fine with his racist comments, bigoted comments, uselessness as Obama’s VP, using his position to enrich his family members, his conflicts of interest, his gropey hands, and so much more. Nope

Could climate change submerge Joe Biden’s presidential bid?

Climate change is transforming life by redrawing coastlines, turning vast areas of forest into infernos, stirring enormous storms and spreading exotic diseases. An indirect casualty of this upheaval could be Joe Biden’s hopes of becoming US president.

Biden, frontrunner in the polls to secure the Democratic nomination, has not laid out a plan to address the crisis.

This is set to change, according to Reuters, with the Biden campaign working on a strategy to reinstate climate policies torn down by Donald Trump, such as restrictions on coal-fired power plants and vehicle fuel efficiency requirements. (snip)

But this “middle ground” approach has been roundly attacked by environmental groups and progressive Democrats for being woefully insufficient.

More importantly, it does not appear to chime with the urgent action scientists say is required to avert disastrous climate change. A landmark UN report last year stated that “unprecedented”, “rapid and far-reaching” transformations across energy, land use and transportation are needed to avoid increasingly dire flooding, wildfires, heatwaves, food insecurity and unrest.

“A ‘middle ground’ policy that’s supportive of more fossil fuel development is a death sentence for our generation and the millions of people on the frontlines of the climate crisis,” said Varshini Prakash, director of the Sunrise Movement, a youth climate change organization allied to progressive Democrats such as the New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Will this kill his prospects? I’d like to say it is idiotic to consider this, but, then, look at the Democratic Party these days and the nuts who will be voting in the primaries.

    Teach typed, without a sense of irony: “racist comments, bigoted comments, uselessness as Obama’s VP, using his position to enrich his family members, his conflicts of interest, his gropey hands”

    Other than being President Obama’s VP, you’ve described trump, only gently. trump has lowered the bar to subterranean depths. No matter who wins the Dem nomination, they’ll be able to say, “At least he’s not as bad as trump.”

      What Dems won’nt be able to say is what they will do to keep the jobs increasing, (hint: increasing regulations and costs makes businesses relocate, see New Jersey for an example); GDP rising.
      Dems won’t have an answer for why is it under the Repubs do we have historic low numbers of Black and Latino unemployment.

      Do you have a problem with record employment by Blacks and Latinos? I don’t.

    Forests becoming infernos is directly attributed to poor forest management due to eco-facists prohibiting ANY involvement in the natural land, (i.e. clearing the underbrush, setting smaller fires as a protective measure). But hey, let’s blame Capitalism.
    Idiots.
