US Must Lead on Climate Change, Sanders Says

WASHINGTON - As nearly 150 world leaders gather for a summit in Paris on climate change, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said on Tuesday that the United States must lead the world in taking bold actions to stop climate change.

Calling the need to combat climate change a moral issue, Sanders agreed with Pope Francis about the urgent need to take action.

“The pope was right when he said the problems are getting worse and that unless we act ‘we are at the limits of suicide,’” Sanders said.
