In her own words: “For too long, our nation has failed to take action on climate change, putting the future of our people and our planet in danger. This inaction has led to record- breaking sea levels that are eroding our infrastructure, rising ocean temperatures that are dramatically altering marine life and destroying our coral reefs, and exacerbating natural disasters. All people deserve to breathe clean air, drink clean water, and believe in the promise of a bright future. We must build upon the momentum growing at the federal, state, and local levels to end our addiction to fossil fuels and transition the country to a 100% clean energy economy.”

Gabbard ties climate chang to global threat, must have global coordinated response, so important that we end our policy of trying to be the world’s police, and lead instead with cooperation instead of conflict. We can resolve differences in negotiation. #IACaucus

I think we need to look at every one of our military bases around the world and assess its value and its use towards our national security interests, and the other issues that we’re facing,” Gabbard continued. “This issue of climate change and refugees is one that not only we, the United States, are concerned … Continue reading "https://www.sentinelsource.com/news/local/gabbard-brings-aloha-spirit-and-staffers-to-rindge/article_1857c3f4-62b7-5f5a-bd79-3cf8c86f5224.html"

Climate change is one good example unfortunately of how partisan politics and divisiveness is getting in the way of us actually solving real problems. It’s just the two words, climate change, that have become such a hot button. It will elicit one extreme response or another.” Some people regard it as a hoax or a … Continue reading "https://www.laconiadailysun.com/news/local/gabbard-brings-presidential-campaign-to-laconia/article_18d83ae8-e552-11e9-b524-437faf111b45.html"

Gabbard: Really unfortunate that climate conversations are flash points btwn believers & deniers. Have to break it down to what’s real, having safe place for kids to grow up, clean air, clean water. That will allow us to make progress together. Smattering of applause. #IACaucus

Q: How has climate change affected Hawaii? Gabbard refers to experience on Honolulu City Council, saying one of our 1st briefings was from climatologists and hotel industry about which hotels would be underwater and when. Same with a new transit system being built #IACaucus

Pivoting to climate change, Gabbard argued the issue does not have to be a choice nor will pushing toward green energy eliminate jobs, suggesting TPI as an example. She also claimed the talks of climate change has become a “partisan political flashpoint” dividing constituents into “climate believers” or “climate deniers.
