Sanders Sends A Dire Warning To Trump That He Can’t Ignore… Our Lives Depend On It
Donald Trump’s way of thinking could end up costing us dearly. He isn’t a firm believer in science and believes global warming is a hoax.
On Saturday Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) gave Trump some advice that he should listen too. He told him to pay attention to scientists and “not the fossil fuel industry and their lobbyists.”
Sanders tweeted: “President Trump: Listen to the scientists who are out on the streets, not the fossil fuel industry and their lobbyists.”

Sanders was speaking about the millions of people that gathered across the country on Saturday for the Science March.
Trump has put into question his beliefs in science by picking Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency.
Sanders blasted Pruitt’s stance on climate change after his confirmation, calling it “pathetic.”
“You have the head of the Environmental Protection Agency who denies … reality in face of overwhelming scientific evidence,” he said. “Not only is it sad, it is a real threat to the well-being of this country and the world.”
Trump also signed an executive order last month that started rolling back multiple Obama-era climate change regulations.
“I am taking an historic step to lift the restrictions on American energy, to reverse government intrusion and to cancel job-killing regulations,” he said.
