The Democratic Party’s nominee for president blamed major fires on the Trump administration’s refusal to endorse an environmental theory.
Joe Biden has strangely suggested fewer severe natural disasters would occur if the Oval Office recognized higher carbon dioxide levels have a long-term impact on weather patterns.
“[President] Donald Trump warns that immigration is threatening our suburbs, it is ridiculous but you know what is actually threatening our suburbs? Wildfires are burning the suburbs in the West,” he said, according to Fox News. “Climate [change] denial may not have caused these fires and record floods, record hurricanes but, if he gets a second term, these hellish events will continue to be more common, more devastating, and more deadly.”
The Democrat made an emotional plea that re-electing President Trump would only cause nationwide fires and floods.
“Floods are wiping out suburban neighborhoods in the Midwest, hurricanes are imperiling suburban life along our coasts,” he said. “If you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anybody be surprised if we have more of America ablaze? If we have a climate denier in the White House why would anyone be surprised when more of America is underwater?”
Biden claimed if he is elected as the next president, he will support the climate change theory.
“We need a president who respects science, who understands that the damage from climate change is already here,” he said. “President Trump’s climate denialism, his disdain for science and facts [are] all the more unconscionable … he fails to protect us from the pandemic, from an economic free fall, from racial unrest, [and] from the ravages of climate change.”
California Gov. Gavin Newsom has a very different opinion about the Trump administration’s response to wildfires burning in several northern parts of the Golden State. The Democrat even commended the president on his quick response to requests for U.S. Air Force assistance to combat the blaze.
“I want to thank you and acknowledge the work that you have done to be immediate in terms of your response to our Air Force Modular Airborne FireFighting System (AF MAFFS) request,” Newsom said according to a video shared on Twitter.
“The state has received the AF MAFFS support as well as the major disaster declaration, which you referenced on August 22—which was profoundly significant, not only to help us support our mutual aid system but also individuals who are in desperate need of support.”
When asked about his position on climate change, the president suggested even the experts are divided on precisely what causes extreme weather conditions.
“Just watch, I do not think science knows actually,” he said.
