In the midst of government investigations, subpoenas, and hearings relating to last September's deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who has been laying relatively low since she departed the administration earlier in the year, was interviewed by Hollywood actor Harrison Ford about global warming.
"We are in a race against time," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Wednesday night, in an interview with actor Harrison Ford.
"We still live in a state of denial," Clinton suggested, regarding the future impacts of climate change. "We see it, we experience it, but we have a great deal of difficulty in summoning the political will ... to address it."
Ford interviewed Clinton on challenges ranging from climate change to poaching as part of Conservation International's annual New York Gala Dinner.
Clinton focused specifically on small Pacific Island nations whose existences, she said, "are truly at stake."
Clinton, the current presidential Democratic front-runner for 2016, testified on Capitol Hill in January about the State Department's handling of the attacks in Libya before during and after the assault on the consulate in Benghazi happened. Republicans are looking toward bringing Clinton back to testify about the Benghazi attack again via subpoena.
