Gillibrand on climate change


Gillibrand said that global climate change is “the greatest threat to humanity” and voiced her support for the Green New Deal, an economic and environmental reform bill proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA).

“Green jobs are the greatest economic opportunity of this generation,” Gillibrand said. “[I would] use the bully pulpit of the presidency to generate nationwide, worldwide call to action and to be the one that figures it out.”
