Gillibrand in Iowa
The Green New Deal — a sweeping set of proposals to address climate change — won’t be easy to enact, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try, Gillibrand said, citing President John F. Kennedy’s call to put a man on the moon.
“I think it (climate change) is the most urgent threat to humanity that we have. … We have to be bold on this,” she said.
“The fact that President Donald Trump stepped away from the Paris Climate Accords is outrageous. The fact that his party, unfortunately, doesn’t even believe in global climate change is sad. We need a bold vision for the future.”
