DEBATE: Senator Kamala Harris on Climate Change

On June 27, 2019, the second night of the first 2020 democratic debates, Harris responded to a question about climate change: 

“Well, first of all, I don’t even call it climate change. It’s a climate crisis. It represents an existential threat to us as a species. And the fact that we have a president of the United States who has embraced science fiction over science fact will be to our collective peril… And on this issue it is a critical issue that is about what we must do to confront what is immediate and before us right now. That is why I support a Green New Deal. It is why I believe on day one and as president will re-enter us in the Paris Agreement, because we have to take these issues seriously.”
