Just wrapped up @CNN's #ClimateTownHall. Follow @PeteForAmerica, where my team has been tweeting videos and facts about my plan to unite our country to meet the urgent challenges of climate change. And if you're with me, chip in: https://t.co/BcV3FgdkTN
Undocumented leaders and organizers have done incredible work. Now it's on us to act. We should immediately reinstate DACA—and then give Dreamers and their families a fair and achievable path to citizenship. https://t.co/KtmM3Mlkgg
@EhresmanKatya Thanks for being on the call and in this fight, Katya!
@eorlins No such thing as being “uncool.” Glad I got to meet you both! Grateful down to my toes for your support.
The Amazon fires are accelerating the climate crisis, and indigenous communities are being disproportionately impacted. In the U.S. and around the world, we must fight climate change and protect indigenous lands. #Sept5Act4Amazonia https://t.co/KlyeTIIuWB
What the Trump administration has done to these children and their families is cruel and inhumane. We must stop unnecessary detention. https://t.co/8hgm1T6hxr
Farmers want to be stewards of our land and part of the solution to climate change—and we should be supporting them. That's why my plan will provide farmers with the tools and resources they need to invest in sustainable farming practices. https://t.co/UgvMpr1Zqp
The best part of the #ClimateTownHall was getting to see all of the incredible young activists who built a grassroots movement to make it happen. That's how we'll stop climate change—by dreaming big, fighting hard, and organizing together! https://t.co/D59Pz5sXl7
The fossil fuel industry wants to keep us arguing about light bulbs and cheeseburgers while 70% of pollution comes from just three industries. We need to focus on creating big, structural change to tackle this climate crisis and the Washington corruption head-on. #ClimateTownHall https://t.co/HwdYmcE6T0
You don’t get to ruin the air, the water, and the soil for everyone else because it increases your profitability. #ClimateTownHall https://t.co/tizIanx2g7
Washington is taking money from fossil fuel industries and big polluters and doing exactly what they want, which is mostly nothing. As long as those guys continue to call the shots, we won’t be able to make the changes we need. #ClimateTownHall
I just stepped off the stage at the @CNN #ClimateTownHall. In a Warren administration, I’ll fight my heart out for our environment—from ending new fossil leases on public lands to investing $2 trillion in green research.
Will you chip in $3 right now? https://t.co/wAY7AZxFnW
I proudly adopted many of @JayInslee’s plans—you go anywhere where there are good plans. The only way we’re going to make change is by looking everywhere. https://t.co/NOuqrY9IEU #ClimateTownHall
How is it that, in a democracy, we can have a handful of corporations that year after year drag in bigger profits while the ocean rises—and while our children are sick, and people are dying? That is not right, and it’s happening because Washington is corrupt. #ClimateTownHall
This is exactly what fossil fuel industries want us to talk about—they want to stir up a lot of controversy around your light bulbs, straws, cheeseburgers. But 70% of the pollution comes from three industries. We can set our targets and say no more by 2035. #ClimateTownHall
You don’t get to ruin the air, water, and soil for everyone else just to help giant corporations. We have a Washington that works great for the wealthy and well-connected. It’s just not working for the rest of us. That's corruption, plain and simple. #ClimateTownHall
Don’t sit around and tell me what’s not possible. Look around and tell me what happens if we don’t make change. #ClimateTownHall
I have an aggressive plan to reduce our carbon footprint: By 2028, we won’t have any more new buildings that have any carbon footprint. By 2030, we'll do the same for our cars and trucks. By 2035, we'll do the same for our electricity generation. #ClimateTownHall
Climate change is an existential crisis, and it's going to take big, structural change to stop it before it's too late. Catch up on all of my plans to combat the climate crisis, and then join me on @CNN tonight at 9:20 P.M. ET for the #ClimateTownHall. https://t.co/q17hT8JqxO
Two years ago, President Trump attempted to end DACA—throwing lives into chaos & forcing our DREAMers to live in fear as the Supreme Court decides their fate. It's cruel.
DREAMers are Americans. It's time for Congress to keep our promise to them & provide a path to citizenship.
Despite what the @NRA says, the assault weapons ban that @SenFeinstein and I championed worked. It saved lives.
I’ll ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines once again. We will get these weapons of war off our streets. https://t.co/KpXXPzjYjJ
Last night, @StephenAtHome asked me what the defining factor was in my decision to run for president. My answer was clear: Charlottesville. https://t.co/NN335Bxsvk

It’s critical to have a plan to combat climate change, but it’s going to take more than plans — it’s going to take leadership. I have the experience and relationships necessary to rally the world to meet the urgency of this climate crisis. #ClimateTownHall https://t.co/aXvhwUDHMq
That’s all we have for tonight’s CNN #ClimateTownHall! Make sure to follow @TeamJoe to stay up-to-date on everything happening on the campaign.
Joe Biden grounded his plan in the science — in what the world’s leading climatologists and the UN tells us we need to achieve. It provides a comprehensive path forward on how to address the most pressing issue of our time. https://t.co/evUnnqUCoS
Under Joe Biden’s plan for a clean energy revolution and environmental justice, we will:
✅ Achieve a 100% clean energy economy and net-zero emissions by 2050
✅ Rejoin the #ParisAgreement on day one and rally the world to go further
✅ Stand up to polluters
President Trump continues to:
🔴 Deny the science in front of his own eyes
🔴 Attack the progress made by the Obama-Biden Administration
🔴 Spew lies like “windmills cause cancer”
Defeating him is essential to making any progress on climate change. #ClimateTownHall
Climate change is an urgent threat to our environment, health, economy, and national security. There’s no time for on-the-job training. We need a leader who is ready on day one — and that’s Joe Biden. #ClimateTownHall
The clean energy economy of the future presents an enormous opportunity. President Biden will create 10 million well-paying jobs in the United States that will grow a stronger, more inclusive middle class in communities across the country. #ClimateTownHall
The Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face. It powerfully captures two core truths:
1️⃣ This is an existential crisis requiring immediate, ambitious action.
2️⃣ Our environment and economy are connected.
If Joe Biden was president, there would be no empty chair at the G-7. #ClimateTownHall
We can't turn a blind eye to the way in which environmental burdens are distributed unevenly along racial and socioeconomic lines.
Biden will right these wrongs and stand up to fossil fuel companies who disproportionately harm communities of color and low-income communities.
Here’s the deal: Joe Biden introduced one of the first climate change bills in the Senate, and he’s been at the forefront of the fight ever since.
Don’t just take our word for it, @PolitiFact called Joe Biden a climate change pioneer. #ClimateTownHall
On day one as president, Joe Biden will take action to put the United States on track to achieve a 100% clean energy economy and net-zero emissions no later than 2050
Because action on climate change can’t wait. #ClimateTownHall https://t.co/YWw0tFodt2
Hey everyone — @TeamJoe here! We’re taking over for tonight’s CNN #ClimateTownHall. We’ll keep you updated as Joe Biden takes the stage to discuss his plans to combat climate change.

As president, I’ll tackle climate change by ending subsidies to big fossil fuel and agribiz corporations, ban offshore drilling, harness innovation to create jobs in renewable energy, provide better opportunities for our farmers, and ensure every American has clean air and water. https://t.co/5kVJtvZQhr

Climate change solutions require cooperation with China/Russia, which new Cold War makes impossible. As president, I’ll stand up against the military industrial complex & warmongering media—Will anyone else? If not, their “plans” re climate change are worthless #ClimateTownHall
Walmart and Kroger are acting to address gun violence in our nation and ensure that people feel safe when they’re out in their communities.
But we must go further. Mitch McConnell: How much longer must Americans wait for the Senate to act?
A society is judged based on how it treats children. This Administration will be judged harshly.
Dreamers grew up pledging allegiance to our flag—the only one they know.
Yet two years ago, Trump tried to end DACA and deport Dreamers to a country they don’t even know.
Dreamers deserve a path to citizenship. As president, I will take executive action to make that a reality.
Health care is personal to each of us. For me, that starts with my mother. Thank you, @AdyBarkan, for the opportunity to sit down together.
Watch every second of this. Survivors will carry their trauma for the rest of their lives.
We cannot allow them to suffer alone. Chanel, your strength is so inspiring. We are with you.
Mexico isn’t paying for Trump’s stupid border wall — we are. https://t.co/5pwZo0RDhJ
The climate plan I released today won’t just focus on the future of our planet: it will hold the fossil fuel industry and chemical companies accountable for their part in destroying our environment and harming the health and wellbeing of current and future generations.
I did not get into politics to figure out how to become president. I got into politics because I give a damn.
It's not enough to defeat Trump. We have to take on all the forces that control our economic and political lives.
Join our rally in Denver this Monday, Sept. 9, to show Wall Street, special interests, and the billionaire class the power of our movement: https://t.co/HcZvlSEI7m
People ask me if investing in averting the climate crisis is "realistic." I say:
Is it "realistic" to ignore science?
Is it "realistic" to stand and watch the planet be destroyed by greedy fossil fuel companies?
Is it "realistic" to leave behind a planet that isn't habitable?
I have been proud to stand with ILWU on multiple occasions this year to support their organizing efforts at these veterinary hospitals. I strongly urge @VCAPetHealth and @MarsPetcareUS to respect the needs of their workers and resolve this strike. https://t.co/IYKF91ljX0
Joining every other major country in guaranteeing health care to all is NOT a radical idea. It is the moral, economic, and necessary thing to do. https://t.co/kL6NrOZWjq
Insurance companies want you to believe Medicare for All will throw you off health care and cost more.
It will guarantee health care to all and save working families thousands of dollars a year.
We cannot throw up our hands in despair and accept our fate as the fossil fuel industry gets rich destroying the planet. We have the power to defeat them.

Coal miners are not my enemy. The men and women who work on oil rigs are not my enemy. Climate change is my enemy. #ClimateTownHall https://t.co/pbeJRFYk9a
How we fund the #GreenNewDeal:
-Hold the fossil fuel industry accountable
-Revenue from wholesale of renewable energy
-Eliminate federal fossil fuel subsidies
-Scale back military spending
-Tax revenue from 20 million jobs
-Make the wealthy pay their fair share
Maybe, just maybe, instead of spending more than $1.5 trillion a year on weapons of destruction to kill each other, nations around the world can work together against our common enemy of climate change. #ClimateTownHall
The fossil fuel industry created the climate crisis. They are going to pay to stop it. #ClimateTownHall
Donald Trump thinks climate change is a hoax.
I may be old fashioned, but I believe in science. #ClimateTownHall
We must ban all fracking. #ClimateTownHall

Two years ago, Trump tried to roll back DACA—because he wanted to deport Dreamers from their home country. Let's be clear: Dreamers are Americans. They make our country stronger. And it's long past time for us to sign the DREAM Act into law, so they can become citizens.

If we come together, Democrats and Republicans, we can lead the world on the greatest threat we have ever faced. This is our challenge, and I know we are up to the test. https://t.co/dH0quGB3UJ
We should price carbon—and I think the best possible path to do that is a cap-and-trade system, which holds polluters accountable and provides dividends to the communities most affected by climate change. https://t.co/SNdeLhnYjg
We need to honor our best traditions as a country of immigrants—and allow those impacted by climate change to apply for asylum in our country. It's the right thing to do, it's just, and those we welcome to our country will make us stronger, more successful, and more secure. https://t.co/DZIfzp2eYb
I know Americans are up to the challenge, because I’ve been listening to Americans all around this country. We just need leadership that reflects that ambition—and the hard work, commitment, and ingenuity we will bring to get it done. #ClimateTownHall
I believe in science, I believe in the truth, and I believe in facts. #ClimateTownHall
The wealthiest countries have produced the majority of the climate change we’ve seen that is disproportionately impacting low-income countries—countries like the Bahamas. Let’s offer Temporary Protected Status to everyone there who wants to seek refuge in our country.
Solving climate change is not inexpensive—but what is far more expensive is failing to do so. #ClimateTownHall
@sunrisemvmt Communities of color suffer the consequences of pollution and climate change. As president, I'll invest $1.2 trillion in those most harmed by our environment—so they can not only combat the worst consequences of climate change, but lead our clean energy future.
The @sunrisemvmt will receive the credit for the change we see. They have forced those in power, and those in public trust, to solve these challenges. The United States, the indispensable country, will meet this moment—and it will be because of them. #ClimateTownHall
We don’t get a second chance at solving climate change. This is America, and we are up to this challenge. #ClimateTownHall
Climate change is our greatest existential threat. The work starts on day one. Here’s our plan: https://t.co/Afuyvk986j #ClimateTownHall
