Biden, Trump jockey over climate as wildfires overtake campaigns
Al Jazeera, 15 Sep 2020
Donald Trump has been branded a "climate arsonist", as wildfires burning across the West Coast of the United States become a hot political issue.
The president has visited the state of California for briefings on the growing disaster, insisting scientists are wrong and that it will get cooler.
His Democratic rival Joe Biden accuses Trump of failing to acknowledge global warming's effect on the wildfires, which have killed at least 35 people and destroyed thousands of homes.
