Biden: Temperatures Rising 1.5 Degrees ‘More Frightening Than A Nuclear War’

During a speech in Vietnam, President Joe Biden declared that the possibility of global temperatures rising by one and a half degrees is “more frightening than a nuclear war.”

After leaving the G-20 summit in India, Biden gave a press conference in Hanoi, Vietnam — where he spent a lot of his time fearmongering about climate change, even going so far as to attack those who refuse to buy into the left’s radical climate alarmism.

“Correct me if I get this wrong, John, but I’m quite sure I’m right,” Biden said, calling on his Special Envoy for Climate, failed Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry. “And that is that there’s more carbon absorbed from the air into the Amazon region, into the ground — the ground — than emitted in the entire United States on the same basis.”

“Now imagine if people go in and do what we did, 150-200 years ago — and cut down the forest and start farming in that area,” he continued.

Biden went on to argue that larger and wealthier countries should be taking action to prevent developing nations from taking similar paths.

“In addition to helping the environment overall — and the only existential threat humanity faces, even more frightening than a — than a nuclear war, is global warming going above 1.5 degrees in the next 20 — ten years,” Biden added. “It would be real trouble, there’s no way back from that.”

In that same press conference, Biden attacked those who he calls as “climate deniers” — referring to them as “lying, dog-faced pony soldiers.” This is a line that the president has used before — which he claims he picked up from an old John Wayne film, despite the fact that the quote does not exist. According to TMZ, the line appears to be a bizarre mash-up of John Wayne lines crossed with a 1952 Tyrone Power film titled “Pony Soldier.”

“My brother loves having these famous lines from movies, famous quotes,” Biden said during the press conference, adding: “And one of them is there’s a movie about John Wayne, he’s an Indian scout, and they’re trying — I think it was Apache or one of the great tribes of America back on a reservation.”

He then babbled about headdresses and Union soldiers who apparently tried to get Native Americans to go with them somewhere, promising that they’d be taken care of.

“And the Indian scout points to the Union soldier and says, ‘He’s a lying, dog-faced pony soldier,’” Biden added. “Well, there’s a lot of lying, dog-faced pony soldiers out there about — about global warming.”
