Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi blamed climate change for the wildfires in California during a Thursday MSNBC appearance.
Pelosi said “Mother Earth is angry,” when discussing the wildfires in California. “She’s telling us, whether she’s telling us with hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, fires in the West, whatever it is … the climate crisis is real and has an impact,” Pelosi continued.
