Senator Bernie Sanders Issues Climate Plan: Greenpeace Response

December 7, 2015

The Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate released a "People Before Polluters" plan to combat climate change and transition to clean energy.

In response to the release of Senator Bernie Sanders’ climate plan today, Greenpeace USA Executive Director Annie Leonard issued the following statement:

“The climate plan released by Senator Bernie Sanders today shows that he has broken free of the corporate and 1 percent money that has held back climate policy for far too long. Sanders has issued a powerful call for climate justice and decisive action to keep fossil fuels in the ground and support the communities who are suffering from climate and environmental impacts. Greenpeace applauds this ambitious platform and challenges other candidates who are serious about climate change to reject polluter money and raise the level of ambition in their own plans to meet the greatest challenge of our time.”
