House Speaker Nancy Pelosi emphasized the importance of science as wildfires, a hurricane and a pandemic threaten the United States.
NANCY PELOSI: Let me just say three words about the wildfires and the hurricanes and about the coronavirus. Three words-- science, science, and science. The science that the administration has chosen to ignore, and the Republican Party for a long time before the Trump administration has ignored, in denial about the climate crisis.
The climate crisis that is not only having a physical impact but an economic impact in a way that is, shall we say, another injustice in our society. These people are getting hit. These people are getting hit in-- off the Gulf Coast are, many of them, not in a economic position to survive very well.
