Sanders: ‘Trump Is Dead Wrong When He Talks About Climate Change Being a Hoax’

‘I believe we have to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to sustainable energy and energy efficiency’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
SANDERS: "It is my view that Trump is dead wrong when he talks about climate change being a hoax. I think it is a very serious, serious problem for our country and around the world. I believe we have to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to sustainable energy and energy efficiency. I also think that this tragedy in Texas should have us take another hard look at infrastructure in America. And why it is that all over our country we have major disrepair in terms of roads and bridges and dams and levees. So there’s a lot to be learned from the storm. But the first task, of course, is to rescue people and to help those people who are hurting right now."
