Klobuchar After Snow Announcement: 'We Know Climate Change Is Happening'
Monday while discussing her announcement during a snowstorm that she is entering the 2020 presidential race, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said it is a known fact that “climate change is happening.” Klobuchar said Trump’s tweet that mocked her for talking about climate change while standing in a snowstorm is “so wrong.” “I’m sorry if it still snows in the world, but the point is that we know climate change is happening,” Klobuchar argued. “Just this last year it was one of the fourth hottest years in the history of the world. That’s what’s happening right now. We see this Greenland ice sheet melting. Look at those wildfires in Colorado and California, where you [have had] a dad trying to get through a fire trying to calm his kid down in a car. That’s what’s happening right now in this country. So that’s why I think we cannot ignore it.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
