O'Rourke in Iowa
During an interview with the DI, O’Rourke said he supports the Green New Deal, but noted there were details in the resolution that need to be worked out.
“I want to make sure that any label or any phrase does not prevent us from bringing in those who may be of a different political party, may live in a different part of the country …” O’Rourke said in an interview with the DI. “I want to be focused on the singular goal of saving this planet from ourselves, so whatever we call it by whatever means we achieve it.”
During his speech, he further emphasized the scientific evidence of climate change and outlined how he would address the problem through investment in renewable energy.
