In a joint address in Miami, Clinton and former vice-president Al Gore hammered the Republican nominee for his belief that global warming is a hoax
Hillary Clinton used the global climate crisis as a weapon for another assault on Donald Trump on Tuesday, enlisting the help of her husbands former vice-president Al Gore to urge Americas voters not to risk sending a climate change denier to the White House.
In a joint address in Miami, Clinton and Gore repeatedly hammered the Republican nominee for his stance on climate change and his belief that global warming is a hoax initiated by the Chinese.
Climate change is real, its urgent, and America can take the lead in the world in addressing it, Clinton said, promising investment in clean energy.
We can transform our economy, we can rally the world to cut carbon pollutions and above all we can fulfill our moral obligation to protect the planet. Just remember what is at stake. My opponent is a guy who denies science, who denies climate change every day.
Yet it was Gore, who lost the 2000 presidential election to George W Bush by less than 500 votes in Florida, who delivered the more powerful message about why the climate crisis is one of the most serious issues in this campaign, and why he believes Clinton is the only candidate who can help solve it.
