It is time to unite behind him,” he wrote.5.
Biden on climate change: While the candidates debated over the Keystone pipeline and the future of fossil fuels, Biden made it very clear that his family will not support any effort to cut carbon emissions.

“But as we continue to work together to fight climate change, I’m proud to stand with my dad on this issue.”6.

“You said something awful about my dad, but you were my dad.
I’ve seen how hard he worked for my whole life, and how much he meant to me, and my mother.
