Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) apparently doesn't agree with the climate policy presented by his colleague, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)
When asked during Tuesday's Democratic debate why she wouldn't immediately ban fracking if elected president, Klobuchar said she considers natural gas a necessary "transition fuel," which can help the U.S. net zero carbon emissions in the long run. Sanders, who supports a fracking ban, simply shook his head.
Seconds later, when Klobuchar made the claim that the candidates on stage share similar climate and energy plans, Sanders was caught on camera mouthing "no."
Klobuchar says she supports natural gas as a "transition fuel." But a 2012 study by @MIT researchers found that the U.S.'s increased reliance on fracking hampers the growth of renewables. Fracking also releases methane, which is 80x more potent than CO2 at trapping heat. pic.twitter.com/A8dvNGgIvG
