Bernie Sanders’ campaign wants Hillary Clinton to release her climate change plan, on the heels of news Wednesday that last year was the hottest on record...

 

“Sen. Sanders believes stopping the worst effects of climate change is a critical challenge for the next president,” campaign spokesman Michael Briggs said in a statement. “With only 12 days to go before the Iowa caucuses, however, it remains unclear whether Hillary Clinton will tell voters what she would do to address climate change. In July, a post on her campaign website promised a 'comprehensive energy and climate' plan 'in the coming months.' It’s now six months later. What’s taking so long? Is there a pattern here?”

The call for Clinton’s campaign to release a plan comes after the former secretary of state's campaign asked the Vermont senator last week to release the details of his health care plan. Sanders did release the pay-for details on Sunday, just hours before the two candidates went head-to-head at the Democratic debate.

The Sanders campaign blasted out its own statement earlier in the day, after the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA reported that 2015 was the hottest year on record, surpassing the previous mark set in 2014.

"The debate is over. Fourteen of the last 16 years have been the hottest ever recorded. Climate change is real and is caused by human activity. This planet and its people are in trouble. Unless we get our act together, we will see in years to come more droughts, more floods and more extreme weather disturbances," Sanders said in the statement.

The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond for request for comment.
