MOONBEAM: Governor Jerry Brown Says Climate Change As Serious As Issues We Faced In WWII

Governor Jerry Brown feels very strongly about the danger of climate change. He even thinks it’s as bad as fighting Hitler and the Nazis, apparently. How is anyone supposed to take this comparison seriously?

California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown warned that America and the rest of the world are falling behind in the fight against climate change and likened the challenge to fighting the Nazis in World War II.

In an interview for Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” the outgoing governor called on President Donald Trump to take the lead in addressing the issue. “Instead of worrying about tariffs, I’d like to see the president and the Congress invest tens of billions in renewable energy, in more-efficient batteries, to get us off fossil fuel as quickly as we can,” Brown said.

“I would point to the fact that it took Roosevelt many, many years to get America willing to go into World War II and fight the Nazis. Well, we have an enemy, though different, but perhaps, very much devastating in a similar way. And we’ve got to fight climate change. And the president’s got to lead on that.”

Get ready for a major push on this issue from Democrats in the coming year.
