Pelosi on Climate Change: ‘It Is a Moral Issue,’ We Need Good-Paying Green Jobs
PELOSI: “Generals, admirals, et cetera, national security people come to us and tell us that this is a national security challenge in terms of conflicts that erupt because of limitation of assets, migrations that occur, droughts, weather conditions that challenge the communities that people live in, and create unease, unrest, and our national security. And it’s a moral issue. If you believe as I do that this planet is God’s creation, I join with our evangelical community in doing so that this is God’s creation and we have a moral responsibility to be good stewards of it, then we must be good stewards of it. And if you don’t share that view, but you do agree that we owe it to future generations to pass on the planet in a responsible way, then again, it is a moral issue. So that is one of the challenges we face. And I’m pleased to announce that I have established a climate — Select Committee on Climate once again, had one when I was speaker before and we have one now, so this is about creating good-paying green jobs.
Good-paying green jobs and ending some of the denial that is there."
