(CNSNews.com) - Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D.-N.Y.) gave a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday criticizing President Donald Trump for his State of the Union Address, noting, among other things, that Trump did not make an issue out of “climate change.”

“He talked about the future of America and didn’t even mention climate change,” Schumer said. “How could you do that?

“Every scientist who has studied its knows that in the next 10, 20, 30 or 40 years, climate change is going to evoke huge changes in our country and in our world,” Schumer continued.

 

“If you believe in the future and you want to have a good future for our children and grandchildren, which we all do, you can’t ignore climate change,” Schumer said.

“You may have different views on it, but you can’t ignore it,” he said.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in a videotaped interview two weeks ago: “And I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.”
