Former vice president and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden appears to have plagiarized large portions of his climate change plan, in an incident that provokes memories of previous plagiarism scandal that effectively ended his 1988 presidential campaign.
The Daily Caller found striking similarities between Biden’s climate change plan and those published by various green organizations. The similarities include use of the same exact phrases in at least five instances.
Carbon Capture Coalition: “Its goal is to make carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals.”
Biden: “carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) is a rapidly growing technology that has the potential to create economic benefits for multiple industries while significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions.”
Blue Green Alliance 2017 Senate letter: “Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is a rapidly growing technology that has potential to create economic benefits for multiple industries while significantly reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.”
He went on to appear to plagiarize Vox, American Rivers, and Climate.gov.
This would not be the first time Biden raised eyebrows for plagiarism. In his 1988 presidential campaign, when he would have run against President George H.W. Bush had he secured his party’s nomination, Biden famously copied the life story and cadence of a prominent British politician’s television advertisement when delivering his closing remarks at a televised Democratic Party debate.
In 1987, when Biden was only 45, he briefly ran for the Democrat nominee for president, hoping to prevent Republican President Ronald Reagan’s Vice President George H.W. Bush from attaining the office. Unfortunately for Biden, allegations that he plagiarized an advertisement from an unsuccessful British politician, along with evidence that he lied about his college degree, led him to drop out of the primaries.
Biden first claimed that the statement was original to him, and he came up with the idea while traveling. He changed the story almost instantly, saying he borrowed some of the ideas from a British politician, but that the details reflected his life story.
Advisers to Biden’s campaign would later admit that while the speech referenced having ancestors who were coal miners, Biden had no known relatives who worked in that industry.
The somewhat less partisan media of the 1980s quickly exposed Biden’s plagiarism to the public, largely leading him to call off his fledgling campaign for president.
WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”
That kind of experience is unmatched.
Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.
Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.
It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.
However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
