Pelosi: Climate Change Connected to Hurricane Harvey

While Houston is still underwater, the House Minority Leader took time to connect the hurricane to the Democrats' "A Better Deal" platform on the environment.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) linked climate change, and Democrats’ plans to address it, to the destruction that Hurricane Harvey has put on the Houston area, during an event to tout the Democrats’ “A Better Deal” on Tuesday.

A reporter asked how “A Better Deal” will impact the solar industry, a question the Pelosi elected to dodge by telling the reporter that everything is connected.

“I do want to say how proud we are of Jerry Brown for taking the lead in the world for protecting God’s creation to us,” Pelosi told reporters, meaning the planet.

“I talked to my daughter this morning who lives in Houston Texas,” Pelosi continued. “She said to me you think people will catch on that? This climate issue does have an impact in peoples’ lives and that we have to address climate change.”

“So again this is all connected, and as I mention them I do so prayerfully,” Pelosi concluded.
