Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are calling on the Trump administration to consider the effects of climate change when selecting President Trump’s next homeland security adviser.
In a letter to Trump, the two senators urge the president to select an individual who “takes seriously” severe weather patterns and storms caused by a changing climate.
“The Homeland Security Advisor regularly attends meetings of the National Security Council and is responsible for overseeing the Administration’s response to natural disasters, including hurricanes,” reads a statement from Warren’s office.
