Joe Biden - An Environmental Analysis
Joe Biden served as Vice President of The United States from 2009 to 2017. He’s the presumptive Democratic nominee for the 2020 election and will take on President Donald Trump. Previously, he worked as an attorney and a senator. With years of experience and strong performance in the polls, we decided to analyze Joe Biden’s environmental beliefs, policies, and achievements.
Disclaimer: EarthPlex will only judge presidential candidates based on their environmental policies. Even if the candidates have caused harm to the American people or economy, they will still receive our approval if they have strong environmental policies.
Vox has an article inspecting Joe Biden’s past environmental experience. They claim that he “introduced the Global Climate Protection Act.” It was the first bill related to climate change in the U.S. Senate, and President Ronald Reagan passed it. Later, as Vice President, he helped pass the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, The Clean Power Plan, and The Paris Agreement. Joe Biden’s wide range of environmental experience helps to make voters more confident that he will continue to take the issue seriously as president.
Joe Biden’s biggest competitor in the Democratic primaries was Bernie Sanders. Bernie was viewed as a more progressive candidate who gained support from voters passionate about climate change. Many of those voters were disappointed about Joe Biden’s likely victory in the primaries. Even though his competition may have been more passionate about the environment, Joe Biden has bold plans and has gained support from voters who prioritize beating this crisis.
