“Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) sparred over their commitment to the science of climate change, with the vice president repeatedly falsely asserting a Biden administration plans to ban fracking and adopt the Green New Deal.
“The climate is changing. The issue is, what's the cause and what do we do about it? President Trump has made it clear that we're going to continue to listen to science,” Pence said in response to a question about climate change.
Pence later said “climate alarmists” would try to use natural disasters like hurricanes and wildfires to try and sell the Green New Deal.
The Biden campaign has charged the Trump administration with ignoring science on topics ranging from the coronavirus pandemic to climate change.”
