Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez introduced Bernie Sanders at the Climate Summit. Bernie was received with great cheers and chanting. Bernie thanked everyone who spoke. Bernie acknowledged the Sunrise Movement people for coming out to the summit.
We have a major global crisis in front of us and we are going to need unprecedented bold action in order to address it. Cities all over the world could be under water if we do not act. Shorter growing seasons, food shortages, uninhabitable areas, mass migration are all effects of climate change. Solar is now less expensive than coal produced electricity. Iowa already gets one-third of its electricity from wind.
I am not running just to be president. I am running with your help to transform this country.
- Bernie Sanders
