Biden: Denying Climate Change ‘Like Denying Gravity’
Vice President Joe Biden took a strong stance against climate change deniers in an interview with VICE founder Shane Smith.
The interview is part of VICE’s documentary series, which airs on HBO and is premiering its third season on Friday. The first episode, titled “Our Rising Oceans,” will focus on sea level rise.
“It gets to the point where you can’t look anyone in the eye seriously and say, well, it’s nothing having to do with manmade,” he said.
Reacting to members of Congress who deny climate change is real, Biden said, “It’s almost like denying gravity now… the willing suspension of disbelief can only be sustained for so long.”
Watch Biden’s interview in the clip above and catch the full episode at 11 p.m. ET on HBO.
