Biden in Nevada


On wildfires and climate change

Biden took a dig at President Donald Trump for blaming wildfires last year on a lack of raking of forest floors and reiterated his plan to take the country to zero emissions by the year 2050.

“That’s why we should be focusing on alternative energy, wind, and solar,” Biden said.

He also expressed his support for states affected by wildfires.

“There’s a lot we can do, but the fact of the matter is states deserve that help, and it’s a natural disaster for them no different than flooding in the east, or crops being wiped out in the Midwest, et cetera,” Biden said. “We have to provide the help.”
