Climate state of emergency – USA

Call for climate state of emergency and Green New Deal from Jill Stein, US Green Party presidential candidate…Hillary Clinton’s choice to appoint former Colorado senator and interior secretary Ken Salazar to be her transition director “represents the real Hillary Clinton”, Stein said…Salazar, she said, is widely considered a reliable friend to the oil, gas, ranching and mining industries. As interior secretary, he opened the Arctic Ocean for oil drilling, and oversaw the response to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico…Since returning to the private sector, she said, Salazar had become “the lobbyist’s lobbyist – a man who strongly supports fracking, is in favor of the [Keystone XL] pipeline and likely to ensure such projects are approved in the future, and supports the Trans-Pacific partnership”…“So when people say: ‘Hasn’t the Democratic party moved to the left?’ – well, talk is cheap.
