Biden’s new climate change plan copied passages from other sources

Biden’s new climate change plan copied passages from other sources”

A new report claims that former Vice President Joe Biden, who has been holding a big lead atop the Democratic presidential polls since he announced his candidacy in April, has repeatedly and knowingly lied about his involvement in the civil rights movement.

Trump said in his first tweet of the morning, five and a half hours after his last message on the platform the evening prior, that Biden will be sunk not just because of his plagarism woes, but because he generating so little interest as a candidate. "He was caught doing it in law school, it derailed his first failed presidential campaign, and now he's doing it again".

On Tuesday afternoon, Biden's campaign had added quotation marks and citations to the sections under scrutiny.

He finished the day by speaking to a local of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in Concord, trying to sell them on the merits of his plan. "I know, you're just telling what they said". "These are real jobs". "Now his aides went back and said look, he was in office marching for the idea of civil rights, but was not actually marching in the streets".

Some of Biden's Democratic rivals, including Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, have taken tougher stances on climate change by fully endorsing the Green New Deal.

At least three passages from the climate plan Biden's campaign released on Tuesday were copied directly from environmental organizations, CREDO activist Josh Nelson tweeted, posting original text from the Carbon Capture Coalition and the Blue Green Alliance alongside text from Biden's campaign website.

The changes came after The Daily Caller, a conservative news outlet, reported that several passages from Biden's plan appeared to borrow from policy papers and statements written by outside groups without citation.

For example, Biden's website states: "Biden's goal is to make CCUS a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals".

It lists several other measures that would build on Obama-era policies like regulating methane emissions from oil and gas facilities, developing new fuel economy standards for cars, adopting new energy efficiency standards for appliances, promoting advanced biofuels and accelerating the use of carbon capture, which limits emissions from coal plants and other industrial facilities.
