Then let’s see it.
New Jersey Senate candidate Rush Holt is doubling down on his belief that “millions will die” if nothing is done about global warming, adding that he believes millions have already died.
“I think it’s no exaggeration at all to say that millions will die. And in fact there’s pretty good evidence that millions already have died because of climate change,” Holt, a New Jersey congressman seeking to nab Democratic nomination for Senate, told the Star-Ledger editorial board.
Holt’s claim linking the death of millions to global warming came in an online-only campaign ad where he also called for a tax on carbon dioxide emissions.
“On climate change, either we take real action , or millions will die. The answer is a carbon tax, and I’m going to fight for it,” Holt said in the ad. “We can do this.”
