Spokesman: Biden would welcome campaign staff forming union

How the Democrats’ obsession with centrism could reelect Trump

His fellow Democratic 2020 hopefuls said that will not be enough.

"This fossil fuel-friendly agenda would amount to a death sentence for a livable climate", Mitch Jones, climate and energy program director with Food & Water Action, told Common Dreams.

"Many voters feel it's important to defeat Trump in order to put the country back on track". The former DE senator's first stop will be at a pizza parlor in downtown Hampton, flanked by state Reps.

So it's obviously of interest when the person leading in the polls drops hints about his yet-to-be-released climate plan.

That's an emphatic overall lead for the former vice president, and his even wider lead among black voters signals that just like Hillary Clinton, he has a good chance to coast to lopsided victories in the many southern states that frontload the primary.

In addition to recommitting to the Paris climate accord and maintaining vehicle efficiency and emissions regulations, reports Reuters, Biden's proposal "will likely also be supportive of nuclear energy and fossil fuel options like natural gas and carbon capture technology". "Come on, man", said Biden at a campaign stop in Iowa City on Wednesday. But he has also taken heat for a mixed record on global trade deals that many American unions have opposed, and he has deep relationships with some of the Democratic Party's wealthiest donors, including those hailing from the corporate world. In the Monmouth poll, Biden has strong support from voters 65 and older (53%) while Sanders is at 9%.

Pope mandates reporting of sex abuse to church, not police
That was the message of Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, speaking with Vatican News . Cover-up is defined as "actions or omissions meant to interfere with or avoid" civil or canonical investigations.

It's probably too early to criticize this vague set of ideas until we see exactly what it entails.

While Sanders hopes that the Green New Deal's emphasis on infrastructure jobs will lure blue-collar support, Biden seems to be betting he can do so with a plan that sounds less radical.

We're not naive here. "They care a lot about foreign policy".

The second source, a former energy department official advising Biden's campaign who asked not to be named, said the policy could also be supportive of nuclear energy and fossil fuel options like natural gas and carbon capture technology, which limit emissions from coal plants and other industrial facilities.

During his off-the-cuff opening remarks, Biden defended himself against charges that, as president, he would seek a middle-ground approach to addressing climate change. "What I'm not going to do is get into what he wants me to do". "But, let me tell you, we can build a fence 40 stories high-unless you change the dynamic in Mexico and-and you will not like this, and-punish American employers who knowingly violate the law when, in fact, they hire illegals".

Biden, who represented DE in the Senate for 36 years, last appeared publicly in Manchester in April 2017 to keynote a Democratic Party fundraiser. "We're better than that".
