Climate change has bombed at every election except NZ as they are potatoes

Trump will win a landslide. Hard Cheese.

There is no battle. There is no change to normal change.

Battle against what!? You cant fight mother nature!!!!

MattMcGrathBBC Utter delusion... Believing that Biden can change anything kills the planet faster.

So if you believe the whole CO2 thing, then look at the decreased emissions from the US vs the increasing emissions from India and Biden loving China. Without these countries doing their part, it doesn’t matter what the U S does. And FYI, the CO2 thing is crap.

There is no battle against climate change. There is a battle against you commie's.

Why do you interfere in so many elections

Let’s hope Trump wins, and the fake globalists green agenda is binned

Give it a rest. The ClimateChange hoax has been supplanted by another far more effective means of control & manipulation because no one was buying it. There is no climate crisis, no evidence to support it, CO2 is a harmless but essential trace gas. FakeNews lost that one.

surely they don't want this nuthouse to continue. they have a responsibility to the western world.

This is not a photo of climate change. DefundTheBBC

Meanwhile, BBC fake TV news runs a tedious propaganda interview defending their and others exploitation of child-climate-saint Greta Greta 'knows where she wants to take her activism' insists one of her eco-wack exploiters Pity she's thick as mince on the actual science, then.

Yeah the climate changes on a seasonal basis.....and naturally over time too.......tell us something new!

Your photo is not representative of climate change. The fire could be arson, poor forest management, or sparks from utility wires.

Begs the question, why wasn‘t more done during the Obama years?

Flogging dead horses again forest management is the answer

Vote VoteBiden

If, God forbid, the orange freak gets back in, the world is hardly gonna change much in 4 paltry years. Then after that, he's out anyway for good! (Unless he gets his way and alters the amendment to three terms!) 😫

Federalist Society lawyers who have been appointed as Justices on the U.S. Supreme court (representing carbon energy billionaires) don't know if climate change is real, or caused by greenhouse gases. They'll gut any legislation passed into law, that's why they're on the court.

Biden running for Senate 🙄😂😂🙈

bc Biden will join back 'Paris Agreement'! Truth sets us free, sustainable, prosperous, peaceful... with divine people, all species on our same HOME: Earth! just as that Beautiful UN Constitution prepared for the NEW WORLD in truth Peace Harmony!

(CNN)-'An ozone hole that formed over the Arctic this spring and eventually grew into the largest ever recorded there has CLOSED.' 'Thus, despite what you may be thinking, it's recovery most likely CAN'T be tracked to the reduction in pollution......'


Ya that pesky climate change that had fires raging out of control on the west coast but STOPPED right at the Canadian border. Funny how climate change works!

This shows the level of delusion within the BBC. You really think that Joe Biden is going to save the planet (or Donald Trump destroy it)? It's so petty, irrational, hyped, nonsense. Any possibility you could get back to reporting news - not projecting fantasy?

Get Biden in quick or else the fossil fuel barrons held up by Trump will kill us all

Because the current US President thinks forest fires are caused by exploding trees. Next, he might say the bombs inside these trees were planted by Obama.
