Vermont Senator and climate-change crusader Bernie Sanders doubled-down on his fiery rhetoric regarding global warming this week; directly comparing the international situation to a “military attack against the United States.”
“We must look at climate change as if it were a devastating military attack against the United States and the entire planet. And we must respond accordingly,” posted Sanders on social media.

Sanders’ fiery comments come as the self-described Democratic-Socialist and incoming Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are poised to push their ‘Green New Deal’ project; new legislation that seeks to move the US economy away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy sources.
BIG BAD BERNIE: Sanders Unloads on DISNEYLAND Over ‘FAIR PAY’
Vermont Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders unloaded on the Disney Corporation this week; blasting the iconic brand for “dodging” a living wage for nearly 30,000 employees.
According to the Guardian, the Democratic socialist slammed the ‘House of Mouse’ Thursday after Disney executives walked away from massive tax breaks and government subsidies for its southern California theme parks; funds that would have required the company to pay $18 an hour to all employees by 2022.
“Disney is so nervous that the living wage ballot initiative in Anaheim is going to pass,” said Sanders, “it would rather end some of the corporate welfare it receives from local taxpayers than pay all 30,000 of its workers decent wages.”
Disney released an official statement regarding the government funds hours later; saying the policies have “become divisive.”
“Cities around the nation have implemented similar incentive policies with great success. However, unfortunately in Anaheim these policies have become divisive, leading to an unstable business climate and a difficult working relationship with the city.”

BUSTED: Bernie Claims he Purchased ‘CARBON OFFSETS’ to ‘Balance' Use of Private Jet
Bernie Sanders’ campaign publicly responded to a recent report that showed the Vermont Senator had spent $300,000 in private jet travel in October alone; saying they purchased “carbon offsets” to help “balance out the emissions.”
“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” said campaign spokesperson Arianna Jones.
“The campaign purchased carbon offsets from NativeEnergy to support renewable energy projects and invest in carbon reduction projects to balance out the emissions produced on the trip,” Jones told the Daily Caller.
According to the DC, the same day Sanders’ campaign paid for the private travel he called climate change a “planetary crisis.”
“Climate change is a planetary crisis. Our task is clear. We must take on the fossil fuel industry that’s largely responsible for global emissions and accelerate our transition toward energy efficiency and sustainable energy sources,” Sanders said October 10th.
