The campaign of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders raised issue with the campaign of Democratic Party presidential nomination rival Hillary Clinton for her lack of substance on the climate change issue.
“The debate is over. Fourteen of the last 16 years have been the hottest ever recorded. Climate change is real and is caused by human activity. This planet and its people are in trouble. Unless we get our act together, we will see in years to come more droughts, more floods and more extreme weather disturbances,” Sanders said in a statement.
“It is absolutely vital that we act boldly to move our energy system away from fossil fuels. That’s why I have proposed a comprehensive plan to put people before polluters and reduce carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050 by putting a tax on carbon and making aggressive investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency.”
