In her own words: “When it comes to climate change, our very existence is at stake. I have an 8-year-old grandson, and I think about what the world is going to be like when he’s 38. Will it be a place where our cities are underwater part of the time? Will it be a place where the Midwest has burned up? Where we’ve lost some of our great forests? Will it be a place where large parts of the oceans are dead? Will it be a place where people around the world are just fighting for clean water? We’re running out of time to make change, and right now, Washington refuses to lift a finger without permission from the fossil fuel companies. That’s dangerous and wrong. We are the wealthiest nation in the history of the world – of course we can afford to make real investments in renewable energy, green infrastructure, and a Green New Deal. We must meet the urgency of the moment, and I’m in this fight all the way.”
