In her own words: “2018 was the fourth-hottest year on record globally, and another near-record year for U.S. weather and climate related natural disasters. From the floods in the Midwest to the forest fires in the West to intensifying storms and hurricanes across the country, we have already seen the devastating, consequences of a changing climate and the toll it takes on people. Addressing the climate crisis is an urgent priority for our communities, for our economy and for our planet. That’s why on day one of my presidency, I will get us back into the International Climate Change Agreement. And then on day two and day three, I will bring back the clean power rules and gas mileage standards that the Obama administration put into place.”
