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.”

When it comes to tackling climate change, we need a strong voice from the Heartland. Because this isn’t just about the rising sea levels — it’s about the floods, fires, and tornadoes. If we are going to lead this fight, we need to bring the whole country with us. #ClimateTownHall

Sen. Amy Klobuchar says her climate change plan will cost between $2 and $3 trillion, a stark difference from the price tag of Sen. Sanders’ plan of $16 trillion. “You got to be honest with people about how you’re going to get the money,” Klobuchar said. #ClimateTownHall
