Overall Environmental Record

“We are at a generational, if not an historical, tipping point for our nation and the world. Our economy and institutional power structures have been built on the exploitation of people and the environment…. Sen. Bernie Sanders has spent a lifetime fighting against this exploitation and motivating people to take action. This is why the Friends of the Earth Action PAC enthusiastically endorses Sen. Sanders for President of the United States. Our endorsement is based on his deep and unyielding commitment to fighting climate change and, leaving our world a better place for the future” – Erich Pica, President of Friends of the Earth Action
