Klobuchar in Colorado
The 2020 candidate plans to re-enter the U.S. into the Paris Agreement, which motivates members of the United Nations to combat climate change. Klobuchar is also a cosponsor of the Green New Deal and will bring “sweeping legislation” when it comes to green building codes, infrastructure and renewable electricity standards. For Klobuchar, climate change is a conversation that needs to be had with “the entire country.” She recalled stories from people suffering from the current severe floods in the Midwest and a video of a father driving through flames in Paradise, CA, singing to his daughter to calm her down as the fire surround his vehicle.
“[Climate change] isn’t something that’s happening in a hundred years, it’s happening right now,” Klobuchar said.
