image for Resurfaced Video Shows Bernie Sanders Criticizing Media for Not Covering Climate Change in 1989

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has made tackling climate change a key issue in his 2020 presidential campaign, but a video that resurfaced Tuesday shows that the independent was on top of the problem decades before it became a national focus.

A CNN reporter tweeted out a clip from a 1989 C-SPAN interview in which Sanders — who at the time was mayor of Burlington, Vermont — criticized the media for not reporting on climate change.

There's a 1989 C-SPAN interview where Bernie blasts the media for not covering climate change, "the greenhouse effect."

Sanders suggested that the reason major television stations weren’t reporting on climate change was that they wouldn’t make money off the programming.

In his campaign announcement last month, Sanders highlighted climate change as a focus of his campaign along with “Medicare-for-all” and free college tuition.

At the time, Sanders was convinced that the United States needs a major third political party to address the issues.

Although he’s still a registered independent, Sanders said he would run under the Democratic ticket, just as he did in 2016. »
