What does Joe Biden believe? Where the candidate stands on 8 issues.

https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/what-does-joe-biden-believe-where-the-candidate-stands-on-8-issues

After months of speculation, former Vice President Joe Biden is officially running for president in 2020. A Washington veteran who spent decades as a U.S. senator and has twice run for president, Biden is no stranger to national politics. He’s a meme sensation, one half of an unlikely bromance and a lover of ice cream cones. He’s viewed by many as a folksy, spontaneous and gaffe-prone elder statesman of the Democratic Party.

The “scrappy kid from Scranton,” as former President Barack Obama called him, would be the oldest person elected U.S. president in history if he won the 2020 race; he’d be 76 years old on Election Day. Here’s where he stands on eight key issues.

Climate change: Demands action to combat climate change. Supports Paris climate accord.
Biden has called climate change an “existential” threat and has called for the Trump administration to take action on the issue. As vice president, he helped orchestrate the Paris climate accord, which he has called the “best way to protect our children and global leadership.” His strong stance on climate change is longstanding, going back beyond his time as vice president. In 1986, then-Senator Biden introduced the first ever climate bill to establish a task force on the issue.
