Biden Accused of Plagiarizing Parts of Climate Proposal

Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden is accused of having language in his climate proposal that is “remarkably similar" to proposals put forth by environmental groups and does not give attribution to those groups.

The similarities were pointed out by Josh Nelson, the left-leaning vice president of cell phone company CREDO Mobile. 

"The paragraph in Joe Biden's climate plan about carbon capture and sequestration includes language that is remarkably similar to items published previously by the Blue Green Alliance and the Carbon Capture Coalition," he tweeted Tuesday morning.

He then tweeted out examples where Biden’s climate plan appears to lift language from other sources. 

For example, Biden's website states: "Biden's goal is to make CCUS a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals."

Compare this to the Carbon Capture Coalition's plan on their website: "[Our] 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."

Another example is from the Blue Green Alliance. In a letter to the Senate in 2017 the group wrote: "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."

Biden's website contains similar language: "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."

This isn't the first time Biden has been accused of plagiarizing. He admitted to plagiarizing parts of a paper he wrote during his first year of law school. Plagiarizing also helped take down his 1988 presidential run when it was discovered that he lifted remarks from British Labour Party Leader Neil Kinnock's speeches.
