Sanders: ‘We Should Think About Prosecuting’ Oil Company Execs for Global Warming

‘Because they have lied and lied and lied when they had the evidence that their carbon products were destroying the planet’

RUSH EXCERPT:

SANDERS: “The United Nations is telling us that in the years to come there are going to be hundreds of millions of climate refugees causing national security issues all over the world. What we have got to do tonight, and I will do as president is to tell the fossil fuel industry that their short-term profits are not more important than the future of this planet. And by the way, the fossil fuel industry is probably criminally liable because they have lied and lied and lied when they had the evidence that their carbon products were destroying the planet, and maybe we should think about prosecuting them as well.”
