Speaking at the People’s Climate March in New York City, independent Senator Bernie Sanders discusses a potential 2016 presidential run and how getting money out of politics is critical to addressing the climate crisis. “[President Obama] can and should do more,” Sanders says. “But the major impediment right now is not Obama, it is the Republican Party.
