Fires Push Climate Change Into Campaign Discourse

With smoke from spreading West Coast fires wafting across the nation, President Donald Trump visited California, where he blamed the deadly blazes on poor forest management rather than climate change — which he’s long dismissed as a hoax. While Gov. Gavin Newsom gently disagreed, presidential challenger Joe Biden, speaking in Delaware, labeled the president a “climate arsonist.” Biden has proposed a $2 trillion green energy initiative to fight climate change. Meanwhile, Americans in states across the west have been advised to stay inside, as the smoky air endangers human health while it darkens residents’ days.
