According to transcripts from Hillary Clinton’s speeches, the Democratic presidential nominee dropped the words “climate change” from the majority of her presidential addresses since Bernie Sanders conceded defeat.
Since Sanders’ public endorsement, Clinton has referred to climate change directly in “less than half as many speeches.”
In her online pitch to millennials, Clinton didn’t mention climate change at all.
Since the endorsement on July 12, Clinton has mentioned climate change specifically eight times in the 38 total speeches she has given. Prior to Sanders’ concession she was mentioning it on average once out of every two speeches.
This is a major concern for climate and environment activists as the other candidate in this election, Donald Trump, refuses to acknowledge climate change as real at all.
