Sanders in Nevada


Speaking at a rally in Las Vegas on Saturday evening, Sanders said of climate change that the president’s policies have “made a bad situation worse.”

“Trump thinks that climate change is a hoax, and is making us more dependent on fossil fuels,” Sanders said. “I think it might be a good idea to listen to the scientists and not to Donald Trump.”

He went on to criticize the role of fossil fuel companies and the military industrial complex in fueling the root causes of climate change, as well as touting his own version of the controversial Green New Deal as the most “comprehensive climate change legislation ever introduced” by a national candidate.
