About 15 middle- and high school students in the San Francisco Bay area met with Feinstein on Friday, asking the six-term senator whether she would vote for the ambitious climate change proposal introduced earlier this month by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and Sen.
"Some scientists have said we have 12 years to turn this around", a girl told the senator.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein disagreed with a group of schoolchildren over climate change Friday and saw a video of the tense exchange hit the Internet, CNNreports. "So I don't think that working on an issue for 30 years alone is what qualifies as - as what makes someone qualified to solve an issue", Ocasio-Cortez said in a clear swipe at Feinstein.
An activist subsequently said, "The government is supposed to be for the people, by the people...." "And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, is it okay to still have children?"
"I'm trying to do the best I can, which was to write a responsible resolution", Feinstein said. You come in here and say it has to be my way or the highway, I don't respond to that.
"And I'm just not here to listen to this ... belief that is not grounded in reality", she also warned, saying that "climate delayers are the new climate deniers".
