Feel The Climate Bern: Planet Will Be ‘Uninhabitable And Unhealthy’

Eric Scheiner | January 14, 2020

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders painted a bleak picture of the planet if we don’t turn away from fossil fuels “right now,” the Earth will be “uninhabitable and unhealthy.”

Because people care about the health offered on a planet if they can’t live on it, I guess.

“Let's be clear. If we as a nation do not transform our energy system away from fossil fuel, not by 2050, not by 2040, but unless we lead the world right now. Not easy stuff. The planet we are leaving our kids will be uninhabitable and unhealthy,” Bernie said during Tuesday night’s Democratic Presidential debate.

Sanders went on to say taking on the fossil fuel industry is "what the Green New Deal does."
