Joe Biden's team alters climate policy plan after plagiarism allegations

The Daily Caller, a conservative news website, picked up the story and said they found three other examples of improperly sourced material.

Nearly immediately after releasing a climate plan Tuesday that green groups slammed as woefully inadequate in part due to its embrace of industry-backed proposals such as "carbon capture", presumptive 2020 Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden faced accusations of plagiarizing language from a number of sources, including a coalition consisting of major fossil fuel companies.

The Biden campaign admitted afterward citations of some of the materials were "inadvertently left out" of the final document.

Tweeting from the US ambassador's residence in London, Trump mocked Biden for low-turnout rallies and a plagiarism scandal with the potentially to critically wound the Democratic presidential candidate.

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". "His other problem is that he is drawing flies, not people, to his Rallies".

"More than once" Biden's advisors reminded him during 1988 presidential campaign that he, in fact, had not marched for civil rights, but Biden continued to make the claim to voters, The New York Times reported. You can't win without people!' He quit his first presidential race more than 20 years ago after he was caught plagiarizing a speech and a law school paper.

The incidents appeared to be staff errors when detailing Biden's policies, and they underscored how hastily his campaign was attempting to put out specific proposals.

'Four decades in public life and there's always one constant.

Biden, who announced his candidacy in April and is the clear leader in recent national and early-state primary polls, is offering his climate plan as some of his rivals suggest the 76-year-old former vice president is not bold enough.

Biden's events have attracted sizable crowds, but not almost to the extent of the large-scale rallies that Trump's campaign holds on a regular basis. "As soon as we were made aware of it, we updated to include the proper citations", Biden's campaign said in an emailed statement. 'The challenge for the campaigns and the press is to decide which is which'.
