Bernie Sanders Talks Climate Change On Late Night With Seth Meyers
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night to discuss climate change.
While Sanders’ $16-trillion plan to combat environmental crisis may seem hefty to some, he was clear in establishing a sense of urgency on the segment.
“I think that we have a moral responsibility for our children and future generations to do everything that we can to make sure that we leave them a planet that is healthy and habitable,” he said.
Sanders also touched on his Medicare-for-all plan, in which he hopes to provide comprehensive health care for Americans, and get rid of private insurance which often has unattainably high premiums.
Bernie Sanders’ Climate Change Plan
Sanders has released the most ambitious and comprehensive climate change plan of all the Democratic candidates. It includes a shift to 100 percent renewable energy in the electricity and transportation by 2030, and the distribution of transition money to workers in fossil fuel sectors.
In the recent CNN Climate Change Town Hall, Sanders told the audience that anything else is irresponsible and unfeasible. He maintained also that his government would be able to “walk and chew bubblegum at the same time,” in that it would be capable of managing more than one problem at once.
