Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) are set to introduce on Tuesday a joint resolution with Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) declaring climate change an official emergency, The Guardian reported Monday.
The resolution reportedly reads, “The global warming caused by human activities, which increase emissions of greenhouse gases, has resulted in a climate emergency” that “severely and urgently impacts the economic and social well-being, health and safety, and national security of the United States.”
The article goes on to state the following:
It also “demands a national, social, industrial, and economic mobilization of the resources and labor of the United States at a massive-scale.”
Blumenauer’s office told The Guardian that he decided to draft the resolution after President Trump declared an emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border to fund barriers there.
President Trump’s record on the environment is pathetic and an embarrassment to the world. This is a man who still thinks climate change is a “hoax.” He better start listening to scientists and not his friends in the fossil fuel, chemical, and big agribusiness industries. https://t.co/pR2StqgPsh

When Hurricane Sandy hit NYC in 2012, FEMA’s flood maps – which impact the National Flood Insurance Program (!!) – hadn’t been updated since *1983,* before the government even acknowledged climate change was real and connected to fossil fuels.https://t.co/3z4ig50XF5
