EXCERPT:

MAXWELL: “I also think that climate change, we talk about it only when there is a crisis, but we’re in an ongoing crisis. Climate change is a national security issue with which we have now a timetable that scientists have told us if we don’t get our acts together, in about 20 years, we can’t reverse the course that we’re on. When we’re seeing hurricanes that are stronger than ever, when we're seeing tsunamis in Asia, when we’re seeing forest fires that have never been this big in California, and are devastating, that’s, you know, that’s like a red bell ringing very loudly telling us that we need to do something. And instead of at least admitting there may be a problem that is related to the climate, he’s installing a climate denier at EPA. And so I think that, again, it goes back to, what do we do as people who have to live here, breathe the air and drink the water? What do we do in terms of forcing our government to do the right thing because it’s about our national security. Climate change is not something that’s a hippie issue that only, you know, lefties care about. It’s something that is impacting children who, in Flint, still can’t drink clean water.”
