Joe Biden suggested Thursday that it was “rational speculation” to suggest that global warming may have been the cause of the condo to collapse in Miami.
“We don’t have any firm proof of what’s happened,” Biden said, adding “There are all kinds of discussions about whether or not they thought that water level rising, what impact it had.”
He continued, “And interesting to me, I didn’t raise it, but how many of the survivors and how many of the families talked about the impact of global warming. How much, and they [don’t] know exactly, [but] they talked about sea levels rising and about how, how they were, and and the combination of that and the concern about incoming storms, incoming tropical storms.”

It is patently ridiculous to jump to ‘rising sea levels’ and storms as a potential cause of building collapsing before any investigation into building quality and maintenance has been carried out, yet it isn’t the first time it has been raised.
Days ago Biden’s Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm suggested that climate change could have played a role in the collapse.
