Joe Biden ‘forcing absolute socialism’ on US as Greta Thunberg’s rival rubbishes green vow

The former Vice President has been outspoken on issues surrounding the environment, and should he claim victory in the US election, has vowed to install a new green deal on his first day in office. But his decision to take such a tough stance on climate change in the US has been dismantled by Ms Seibt, who claims the hugely expensive move could spark the meltdown of the US’ economy. The German, who argues the impact of CO2 emissions on the environment is highly over-inflated, argues that his move to spend trillions of dollars to protect the environment, was similar to claims of how his rival Donald Trump “has ruined the economy” over his reaction to the coronavirus.

She said: “You have Joe Biden who promotes absolute socialism in terms of the climate change debate, even though he never approaches any true professionals or experts on climate change.

“He should at least look at both sides because you can’t have your pro-climate change activists and scientists, but if you shut down everyone else you don’t even allow for debate then you can’t implement such strong economic policies in my opinion.”

The activist added: “Whenever the Democrats post something about climate change it’s usually something like, ‘It’s getting warmer here’, or, ‘There’s a climate catastrophe there’.

“But where is the cause and relationship between CO2 emissions and the catastrophe?

“What they’re saying is that everything we see like catastrophes and warming, if we end man-made climate change, if we don’t emit any more CO2, there will never be any more catastrophes.

“Because allegedly there are no natural catastrophes – everything is caused by man.”

Ms Seibt, who has previously backed Mr Trump on the environment, also accused Mr Biden, and running mate Kamala Harris, of “never showing any proof” that some catastrophes are caused by CO2 emissions, concluding: “Do they actually think that if you don’t drive your car anymore, there won’t be an earthquake somewhere on the other side of the world?”

Unsurprisingly Mr Biden has been backed by Ms Thunberg, who urged those in the US who wanted to change the environment to back the Democrat.

Mr Biden currently remains favourite to beat Mr Trump to the White House, and in a show of support Ms Thunberg, who has previously said she doesn’t engage in party politics, tweeted: “The upcoming US elections is above and beyond all that.

“From a climate perspective it’s very far from enough and many of you of course supported other candidates. But, I mean you know damn! Just get organised and get everyone to vote Biden.”

She hopes that Mr Biden will press ahead with his plan to spend $2trillion (£1.5tn) on making the US a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035.

Although it appears Mr Biden remains on course for victory, new data from Betfair Exchange showed that for the first time it was predicting Mr Trump will be successful in his quest to get a second term as President.

Spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “Mr Trump is now favourite to win the election for the first time, surging by 27 percent on Betfair Exchange since polls closed.

“In a remarkable turn of events, Mr Trump has overtaken Mr Biden significantly and is now in pole position, suggesting it could be a very nervous night ahead for Mr Biden.”
