Beto O’Rourke ended his presidential campaign on November 1, 2019.
In his own words: “In the great existential challenges that face us, and none greater than climate change. This, scientists tell us, is happening beyond a shadow of a doubt, is caused by human activity and human inaction, and there are 12 years left to us – every single one of us. This rests on all of our shoulders to act while we still can, and make sure that this world is inhabitable for the generations – the kids, the grandkids, the people of the future – who will succeed us on this planet. In other words, we never face a set of greater challenges than the ones that are before us now.”
