Some audience members cheered on Pelosi but others heckled her from the crowd, with the ruckus continuing for most of her remarks.
“It’s thanks to your help that the United States recently enacted historic climate legislation, which will be a game changer,” Pelosi said as the rumble continued. “It will slash carbon pollution by 40% by 2030, it will give a historic, an historic $370 billion to fight the climate crisis.”
As boos and cheers continued, several hecklers are heard yelling “let’s go!” apparently looking for the evening’s entertainment to resume.
Pelosi tried to continue her speech, saying the bill would result in “better water and air for our children” as well as “better-paying jobs and lower energy bills for their parents.”
The audience continued to make noise over the remarks as Pelosi closed by saying her grandchildren Paul and Thomas were in the audience – and she had agreed to keep her remarks short so as not to delay more music.
