O'Rourke in Iowa


One of the major talking points of the question and answer portion of the event was climate change, and O’Rourke furthered his environmental stance stating that he wants to meet a goal of getting to “net-zero” carbon emissions by the year 2030.

″(Climate change) is the greatest existential threat to our nation,” said O’Rouke. “Nothing else will matter if we do not take steps to address the climate going forward.”
