"Californians have seen massive mudslides bury entire highways. Californians have seen rising sea levels caused by climate change put entire communities and businesses near the coastline at risk. Californians have experienced massive heat waves that have impacted people in low income communities, who do not have air conditioning, in some cases with death."
"In my view, the first thing that we have got to do is to understand that this crisis is real, that people all over California, all over America have got to stand up and call Donald Trump (US Republican presidential presumptive nominee) and the other Republicans what they are, and that is acknowledge that this denial of climate change is an incredible threat to billions of people on this planet. They are doing this planet - their own children, their own grandchildren - a horrific disservice by maintaining this lie."
"No, I did not, and you did not hear me compare Secretary Clinton (US Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton) to Donald Trump. Donald Trump is a climate change denier. He is rejecting science. And he is telling the people of California what everybody knows, they've seen with their own eyes, that there is a drought that he believes that climate change is a hoax. That is not Secretary Clinton's point of view and you did not hear me suggest that. What I did suggest is that I urge Secretary Clinton to be bolder. Of course she recognises the reality of climate change. But I want her to join me in supporting a tax on carbon."
"Number two: that while Secretary Clinton may be focusing today on Donald Trump, I think we have an excellent chance to win the primary here on Tuesday, and if the turnout is high, I think we can win it in big numbers."
