Joe Biden on climate deniers: “It’s almost like denying gravity”

By Joanna Rothkopf

In an interview with VICE founder Shane Smith, Vice President Joe Biden responded to Sen. James Inhofe’s claims that global warming is the “biggest hoax” perpetrated on the American people.

“I think it’s close to mindless,” Biden said. “It’s almost like denying gravity now… The willing suspension of disbelief can only be sustained for so long. The expression my dad always used to use was, ‘Reality has a way of intruding.’ It’s intruding in a big way now and people are beginning to truly understand what it means to them in particular.”
