President Joe Biden spoke with a group of Manhattan donors about the possibility of nuclear war Tuesday.
Biden called global warming “the single most existential threat to humanity we have ever faced, including nuclear weapons,” the New York Post reported.
“Reporters were only allowed to see part of Biden’s remarks, and video of the private event was not immediately available,” the New York Post added; it is unknown if Biden elaborated on his climate change comments.
This message comes just three months after the 46th president told other New York donors the world was at risk of nuclear “Armageddon” as the Russia-Ukraine conflict heightened.
In October, Biden warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin was “not joking when he talks about the potential use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons because his military is, you might say, significantly underperforming.”
President Biden said the current threat of nuclear weapons was historically unprecedented. “First time since the Cuban Missile Crisis, we have the threat of a nuclear weapon if, in fact, things continue down the path they are going.”
“We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis,” he added.
Late last month, the Democrat governor of New York fueled the fire behind the climate change agenda with comments blaming “climate change” for a blizzard that rocked the state.
“The conditions, the blinding snow, the zero visibility, absolute whiteouts. It may go down as one of the worst in history,” Gov. Kathy Hochul said in a press conference.
“It’s very clear to me that the effects of climate change are wreaking havoc everywhere,” Hochul added.
