Will Donald Trump or Joe Biden be better for the environment? Show more Show less
Back to question

Climate change poses an existential threat to the world. The 2020 United States Presidential candidates are in a position to make or break the future of this planet. Each candidate takes a starkly different stance on the environment and its intersection with the economy, trade, and scientific fact.

The Argument

Joe Biden supports zero emissions by 2050. However, many climate scientists argue that humanity has 10 years to reach zero emissions in order to reverse climate change. This means that his plan will take too long and doesn't do enough, soon enough. [1] Donald Trump does not consider carbon emissions as a primary focus of his Presidential platform. [2]
