Chelsea Clinton: Climate Change and Child Marriage Are ‘Interconnected’ Issues


Chelsea Clinton on Monday insisted that issues such as global warming and child marriage were interconnected.

Clinton was speaking at the 2017 CARE National Conference when she urged attendees to "carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart." Other speakers at the D.C. event included Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and another former first daughter, Barbara Bush.

Clinton was introduced as an "activist, thought leader, and change agent," the Daily Wire reports.

"Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, and women's health, child marriage, access to technology—all of those are of course interconnected," Clinton said. "We have to focus on each of them kind of in their interconnectedness, and also as individual outrages that do demand our attention."

Clinton also denounced various ideologies during the discussion for not being "opinions."

"We also have to realize, particularly at this moment, that sexism is not an opinion, Islamophobia is not an opinion, racism is not an opinion, homophobia is not an opinion, jingoism is not an opinion," Clinton said.
