Gillibrand in Iowa


Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said climate change is “truly the greatest threat to humanity that exists” and said flooding in Iowa showed the urgency policy leaders must take on this issue.

The New York Democrat offered condolences to Iowans suffering from flooding throughout the state at her Des Moines town hall Wednesday and recalled her own experiences in upstate New York seeing the effects of Hurricanes Sandy and Irene on families and agriculture.
