Bill Clinton On American Climate Denial: ‘We Look Like A Joke’

From ThinkProgress:

Speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting today, former President Bill Clinton blasted the Republican Party for supporting denial of climate science. “The best thing you could do is make it politically unacceptable to engage in denial,” Clinton told a questioner about what Americans can do to fight climate change. “We look like a joke,” he continued. “You can’t win the nomination of one of our parties if you accept the science. It’s really tragic. We need the debate between people who are a little bit to the left and a little bit to the right what’s the best way to solve the climate crisis. We can’t have this conversation because we’ve got to deny it?”
