Today's event in Des Moines is specifically billed as a "Climate Crisis Summit" by the Sanders campaign, and is likely to feature extensive discussion of the Green New Deal, the landmark legislation to address climate change and overhaul the country's energy industry, introduced in Congress by Ocasio-Cortez and endorsed by Sanders as part of his environmental protection platform.

“I refuse to accept the choice of leaving a planet that is diminished and dying to the next generation," says @AOC at @BernieSanders' Climate Crisis Summit in Des Moines, IA
What it comes down to. This isn't a tomorrow problem. We've been treating it like tomorrow's problem for 3 decades and now we're proverbially staring down the barrel of a gun attached to an armed nuke. It's obviously not working and our predicament will literally get worse as we pass through tipping point after tipping point.

I'm glad to see a strong progressive force entering the American mainstream a little bit more. If this trend ever converges with the developing project of libertarian municipalism, I think we might have a chance to actually survive on this planet.

Naomi Klein might very well be the smartest, best informed person in the planet, you should all do as she says.

I'm very happy that these people are taking climate change seriously, but none of those people support Nuclear Energy which is necessary to combat climate change. Obviously moving to 100% renewables should be the goal, but when the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow we need a consistent source of clean energy and Nuclear power is the only way to achieve that.
