Bernie Sanders talks a lot about Wall Street and economic inequality. But another important issue for Bernie Sanders is tacking climate change so that our planet stays inhabitable for our children’s generation and their children’s generation. Or as he called for after his big win in Vermont on Super Tuesday – the fight for “environmental sanity.” Hillary Clinton has come out against the Keystone XL pipeline and said that she would tackle climate change too. And even though she hasn’t come out in favor of a carbon tax – she’s light years ahead of any of the Republicans on climate change – just because she actually believes that it’s happening – AND that humans are causing it. How can an entire party reject the reality of climate change? And what can we expect if any of the Republican candidates get into the White House?
