Climate Change Activist Bernie Sanders Just Spent Nearly $300,000 on Private Jet Travel: Report

Former Democratic Presidential Candidate and Climate change activist Bernie Sanders spent nearly $300,000 on private air travel ahead of the midterm election, Federal Election Commission records show.????Vermont news site VTDigger first reported the news that Sanders’ campaign committee paid just over $297,000 to charter jet company Apollo Jets.????On the same day his campaign made the payment to Apollo Jets, Sanders tweeted:????Climate change is a planetary crisis.

Our task is clear.

We must take on the fossil fuel industry that's largely responsible for global emissions and accelerate our transition toward energy efficiency and sustainable energy sources.

??

??When asked about the flights, the Senior communications adviser for “Friends of Bernie Sanders” said:??“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s nine-day, nine-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day.

The senator participated in 25 events.”??Sanders previously spent $5.2 million on private jets between late 2015 and mid 2016.

However, this time the Sanders campaign spent about $5,000 on carbon offsets - helping to provide funding for projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

??Sanders has said he will probably run for president in 2020 if he is the best candidate to beat President Trump.??
