Trump, Biden clash over climate, oil industry in final debate

Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden clashed over the country’s response to climate change in their final presidential debate on Thursday, which included a stark disagreement over the future of the oil industry.

The candidates were asked at their matchup in Nashville, Tennessee, what they would do to combat climate change – the first time in a presidential debate they were not questioned on whether they believed in it or not.

“I do love the environment,” said Trump, citing a federal program to plant trees and a drop in carbon emissions.
But he said he was not willing to harm businesses in order to help the environment.

Biden said his plan for a transition to a more climate-friendly economy would create high-paying jobs and boost U.S. businesses.

“Global warming is an existential threat to humanity,” Biden said. “We have a moral obligation to deal with it and we’re told by all the leading scientists in the world we don’t have much time.”
