Kamala Harris Misleads on Climate Change

  • Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California smiles as she formally launches her presidential campaign at a rally in her hometown of Oakland Calif. Sunday Jan. 27 2019

As The Guardian noted, if that number is accurate, it would mean that Harris drew an even bigger crowd at her presidential campaign launch than Barack Obama did when he announced his own run for president in IL in 2017 to an estimated 15,000-strong crowd.

"There is a lot of work to do", she told a crowd at Drake University, deftly handling questions from health care to criminal justice reform to gun safety to the war in Afghanistan.

"Brown, who served as mayor of San Francisco at the time, had told her campaign that it needed to raise $1 million, US News and World Report wrote in a 2017 piece on Harris's career", The Business Insider reported. On Friday, she was in SC to speak to members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, of which she is a member.

It is a burgeoning field that may ultimately feature dozens of candidates seeking to oust President Donald Trump. And Oakland itself, where she was born and spent her formative years, has a history of activism. When Barack Obama ran for president in 2008, he picked the site for his first Bay Area campaign event. Those five words flashed across screens at Sunday's rally and now constitute her campaign slogan for 2020.

Harris allegedly had an extramarital affair with San Francisco's former mayor - Willie Brown - over 20-years ago. Harris was the first black woman elected district attorney in California, as well as the first woman, first African-American and first Asian-American to hold that job. She did say, "My mother used to have a saying".

However, the report does state that "the effect of human-induced climate change is combined with natural variations and can compound or inhibit the realized severity of any given extreme weather event", and that "both anthropogenic climate change and the legacy of land use/management have an influence on USA wildfires and are subtly and inextricably intertwined". I will lead with integrity.

Apple announced the feature last summer, but then removed it from early test versions of its iOS 12 operating system. While the call is dialing, swipe up from the bottom of the screen, tap "Add Person", and add your own phone number.

Harris is among the first major Democrats to jump into what is expected to be a crowded 2020 presidential contest.

Harris joins early Democratic contenders including former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, Maryland's John Delaney, Hawaii's Tulsi Gabbard and NY senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

In addition to Harris, Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro have already announced plans to join the presidential race, while former Vice President Joe Biden, former Texas Representative Beto O'Rourke, Senators Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders and others are still mulling over whether to throw their hat into the ring.

Harris laid out what looks like a catchphrase marking her campaign: "Speak truth".

But her prime-time town hall brought her into the living rooms of many more Americans.

But Harris' early and energetic entry into the race has given her a leg up. Aides say the campaign will have a second office in Oakland.
