Speaking on climate change at the Munich Security Conference, Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse says that ‘mankind’ does not have to suffer in order to fight global warming.

Senator Whitehouse: “…I don’t want to leave the impression that mankind must suffer in order to make these changes. The changes in consumption can actually be enjoyable and beneficial. If you trade in your Mercedes for a Tesla, your quality of life just went up.”
