Bernie Sanders ended his presidential campaign on April 8, 2020.
In his own words: “I believe climate change is the single greatest threat facing us today. According to top climate scientists, we only have 11 years to dramatically cut our greenhouse gas emissions, or we will suffer irrevocable environmental and economic damage. We are long overdue for taking this threat seriously, due in large part to the hundreds of millions of dollars and armies of lobbyists deployed by multinational fossil fuel corporations to protect their profits. If I am President, I will stand up to these corporations and make facing this existential threat a top priority for our country. We have a moral responsibility to leave our kids a planet that is healthy and habitable. We cannot afford to wait any longer.”
