Former Vice President Joe Biden is riding on the endorsement bandwagon right from his win in South Carolina, after losing the first two primaries to his friend and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. Along with his primary wins consolidating a stronghold on his nomination, Biden has been receiving many endorsements from his fellow opponents, politicians, administrators, and of course the Democrats. Just ahead of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, over 80 scientists from all the corners of the country which include a group of climate experts released an open letter endorsing Joe Biden for the President of the United States.
The signatories include Nobel Laureates, famous authors belonging to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), senior leaders, health experts in the public domain, members of National Academics of Engineering, Medicine, Sciences, advisors to both the political party administrations. “We are writing to endorse Biden for President. He has long trusted the scientific results on climate change, and for the last thirty years, Biden worked to advance the policies to support scientific research. During his time as the Senator of Delaware, Biden was responsible for introducing first climate change bills in 1986, which promoted policies to reduce carbon emissions. Unlike President Trump, we have the utmost confidence in Joe Biden to respect, collaborate, and listen to leaders in the scientific community and public health experts when it comes to the climate crisis,” the letter said.
Some of the signatories include climate scientists from Penn State, Micheal Mann, and Jane Lubchenco, who led the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration under Obama-Biden administration. Responding to the open letter, Biden posted “Unlike our current president, and I will always choose science over fiction,” from his official Twitter handle.
