    Now for me, it’s back to reading books, instead of headlines.

    Congratulations Joe Biden.

    ^^ So what, if that proves to be the case (and which you are only speculating, or maybe just wishing to happen)?

    Aside from what rebar-man said, I asked the mods to change the thread title to President Joe Biden/Kamala Harris. I doubt he'll carry it on for four years, though I hope he does

    Sounds like betting time. What's going to take him out? Sudden death, mentally incapacitated, resign or he sees it through?

    Biden is three years older than Trump. Why the wingnuts think Biden won’t last but Trump would is beyond me. Biden is in so much better shape than the overweight Trump. Biden can actually string coherent sentences together and hold a train of thought. The orange turd cannot.

    There's been a black president, an orange president, about time there was a female president.

    I agree, Trump reminds me of a cockroach.

    Normalcy will return . . . joining the world yet again


    Biden vows to rejoin Paris climate deal if elected president

    US withdrew from the deal on Wednesday, becoming the first country to leave the international climate-change pact.

    Scientists say the world must cut emissions sharply this decade in order to avoid the most catastrophic effects of global warming [Johannes Eisele/AFP]5 Nov 2020






    Joe Biden has said he would immediately return the United States to the Paris accord if elected president, a day after Washington withdrew from the climate change pact.
    “Today, the Trump Administration officially left the Paris Climate Agreement. And in exactly 77 days, a Biden Administration will rejoin it,” tweeted Biden, who, if elected, would take the presidential oath on January 20.

    Biden has proposed a $1.7 trillion plan to take the US, the world’s second-biggest carbon emitter, to net-zero by 2050.
    Trump has aggressively championed the fossil fuel industry, questioned the science of climate change and weakened other environmental protections.
    However, a report last month by the group America’s Pledge found that even without help from Washington, action from cities, states and businesses would still make it possible for the US to cut emissions by 37 percent by 2030.
    Trump gave a one-year notice to leave the Paris accord on November 4, 2019. Biden would need to officially notify the UN of US willingness to return.
    Such a notification would be “the easy part”, Andrew Light, a climate adviser to former President Barack Obama, told AFP news agency.
    The US will still be “outside the conversation” when Britain and the UN host a climate summit on December 12, the fifth anniversary of the COP21 conference in Paris that resulted in the agreement.
    According to the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, in order to have a chance of keeping end-of-century warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit), global emissions need to reach net-zero around mid-century.
    The target warming level was chosen to avoid triggering a series of catastrophic climate tipping points that could force humanity to inhabit only the planet’s far northern and southern latitudes.
    Niklas Hohne, a climate scientist at Wageningen University in the Netherlands and a member of a simulation group called Climate Action Tracker, wrote on Twitter that “Biden’s climate plan alone could reduce temperature increase in the order of 0.1 degree Celsius.
    “This election could be a make or break point for international climate policy. Every tenth of a degree counts,” he said.
    Environmentalists say Trump’s announcement that he would withdraw from the Paris agreement three years ago made it easier for countries such as Australia, Saudi Arabia and Brazil to soften their own ambitions.
    Many of the ravaging impacts of climate change are already felt today: loss of sea ice, with the Arctic expected to be ice-free by mid-century; accelerated sea-level rise, longer and more intense droughts and heatwaves, stronger hurricanes and shifts in precipitation patterns.
    Small island nations face being completely submerged
    Even if the US rejoins, it will face a credibility gap – after all, it was also an architect of the Kyoto agreement that it never ratified.
    That makes it crucial to ensure a shift towards climate action is permanent and not something a future Republican administration will undo, said Light.
    “We know from polling that acting on climate is not this red versus blue, Republican versus Democrat, issue out there in the real world,” he said. A recent Pew poll found that more than 80 percent of Americans agree that humans contribute to climate change, including a plurality of Republicans.
    Key to this plan will be Biden delivering on his pledge of massive economic stimulus and job creation.
    There are already signs that market forces are starting to tip the energy balance from fossil fuels to renewables, but the transition has a long way to go.
    Despite Trump’s efforts to revive the coal industry, more capacity was retired under his presidency than during Obama’s second term, while renewable energy hit record highs in production and consumption in 2019.
    Natural gas, driven by hydraulic fracturing or “fracking,” continues to drive the energy mix, accounting for 35 percent of production.
    Biden views the fuel as a “bridge” to renewable energy and says he won’t ban fracking.

    UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric on Wednesday highlighted recent commitments by South Korea and Japan as signs of progress.

    I'd pay a dollar for pay per view:

    Biden campaign says White House Ďtrespassersí can be escorted out

    Joe Bidenís campaign says Donald Trump can be escorted out of White House if he refuses to admit defeat in US election.






    Joe Bidenís United States presidential campaign has warned that President Donald Trump could be escorted from the White House if he refuses to admit defeat in the knife-edge US election.
    Democratic challenger Biden is edging towards the presidency after pulling ahead in the key states of Pennsylvania and Georgia.

    But Trump has made it clear that he is not ready to concede, launching unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud and claiming falsely that he had been cheated out of re-election.
    ďAs we said on July 19th, the American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House,Ē Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said on Friday.

    In an interview with Fox News in July, Trump refused to commit to accepting the results of the election and a peaceful transfer of power if he lost.
