Sanders and Ocasio- Cortez Teaming Up on Plan to Designate Climate Change as Emergency

The measure to be introduced in the House on Tuesday is designed to highlight Democrats' focus on global warming

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are teaming up on a plan that would designate climate change as an emergency, and at least one of Sanders’ fellow Democratic presidential candidates is planning to sign on.

The measure to be introduced in the House on Tuesday is designed to highlight Democrats’ focus on global warming and push back against President Donald Trump, who’s declared a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border.
