Biden: It Is ‘Rational Speculation’ To Suggest ‘Global Warming’ Caused Building Collapse

Joe Biden

During a press conference on Thursday, President Biden said suggestions that “global warming” caused the building collapse in Miami, Florida, are “rational speculation.”

“We don’t have any firm proof of what’s happened,” Biden said. “There are all kinds of rational speculation about whether or not rebars are, were, were rusted, whether or not the cement, whether it’s limestone or not, and whether or not, but a lot of the, a lot of the families who survived talked about how upset they were that in the last years that they’ve been here, how there was one condominium complex built across the street and a road was purchased. And while they were living there, they would hear the drilling, and they feel their building moving and shaking.”

“There are all kinds of discussions about whether or not they thought that water level rising, what impact it had,” he added. “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 the combination of that and the concern about incoming storms, incoming tropical storms. And so, but I don’t think there is at this point, any definitive judgment as to why it collapsed, and what can be done to prevent it from happening and what other buildings may have to be inspected to determine if they have the same problems.”

The condominium building collapse in Miami last week resulted in at least 18 deaths and 145 more people still missing. The building was built on wetlands, which are vulnerable to subsidence. According to a 2018 engineering report, the building had a “major error” in its design that caused water to pool near its base which would lead to increasing deterioration over time.

The Washington Post reported, “Experts on sea-level rise and climate change caution that it is too soon to speculate whether rising seas helped destabilize the oceanfront structure. The 40-year-old building was relatively new compared with others on its stretch of beach in the town of Surfside.”

    The words Biden and rational should never appear on The same page.
    Let’s see here. Seas are rising at the rate of 0.07-0.10 inch per year. 100 year total: ten inches.
    The sea levels now are not nearly as high as record levels based on years of written and geological evidence.
    So ‘global warming’? NO. Socialist takeover of our energy resources and delivery, transportation, manufacturing, and housing. Don’t believe the hype.

    There is NOTHING “rational” about this theory being thrown out there by a FASCIST LUNATIC !! These Dems blame EVERYTHING on Donald Trump OR Global Warming !!Whichever meets their AGENDA for the day !

    Poor Joe. He isn’t cognizant of what he’s saying any more. I’m surprised his handlers let him comment on anything at all. He needs a cognition test sooner than later. On the other hand, him leaving office would be a total disaster instead of what we’re dealing with now. Harris is even worse.

    It was white supremist that caused the global warming according to Joe.

    If that building fell R/T global warming then the people of south Florida should pack up and leave. There is documentation showing that building started to fail some years ago. Now if that was from global warming then there is not enough mitigation to repair all of south Florida. If you follow Biden’s theory it will soon be a house of cards in south Florida with buildings falling like a bad disaster movie. In other word 1 building does not make it a global event. An entire city that’s from global warming. If that happens it will be futile to have the green new deal, it will be to late.

    I have yet to see a Liberal run anything but into the ground. Just Look at all these cities they have ran for decades.

    OMG it’s even harder to TRY to understand what Joey meant when reading this transcript…

    So according to Biden people in shock about a massive death toll from a building collapse took time out to tell him it might be climate change. I have a large bridge to sell someone.

    The reality is that the Earth’s climate is changing so slowly that it takes networks of sophisticated sensors, decades to even detect it. We must not mix up weather cycles that are part of the current climate with true climate change. Biden does not know what he is talking about. He should leave the determination to the experts.

    I hope I’m not the only to realize this, but it’s not possible to have “rational speculation.” The two words don’t work together.

    Regardless of global warming any of the observed structural defects would have contributed to the building losing structural stability. It’s possible the vibrations from construction could have contributed additionally to soil subsidence and compaction . Thus causing huge differences in stresses in an already weakened building ?

    I’m not a rocket surgeon or anything….But I would say it was faulty construction

    Is this Joker actually mentally capable of commenting on anything? So far I have heard nothing but incoherent nonsense from this idiot. Where the hell do they find those morons.
