Yes, Sen.‘Climate-Change- Is-The-Biggest- Existential-Threat’ Bernie Sanders (Vermont-Hypocrite) seems to love the private jet-setting life.

The Glacier National Park is set to replace signs predicting glaciers would disappear by 2020 due to climate change. The glaciers remain. The signs were posted in the Montana park a decade ago because, at the time, climate change forecasts predicted the glaciers would be completely melted by 2020. The U.S. Geological Survey told the park in 2017 that the glaciers were not melting as fast as predicted due to changes in the forecast model, but park spokeswoman Gina Kurzmen said the park was unable to change the signs until now due to budget constraints…....

CNN Propaganda: Climate Change Makes Hurricanes More Dangerousby Shifra on September 2, 2019
On September 8, 1900, a hurricane hit Galveston, Texas. It was the deadliest U.S. natural disaster in history, with estimates of the death toll ranging from 6,000 to 12,000, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association.

Apparently, little Sandy lives by the statement widely attributed to P.T.
