WATCH: Hickenlooper Signs No Fossil Fuel Pledge, Then Realizes What It Actually Is and Crosses His Name Out

UNKNOWN: “We’re not going to stop the climate crisis if our leaders are being bankrolled by the fossil fuel industry. Especially our next president. So I actually have a pledge here…”


HICKENLOOPER: “This is the pledge, it says: ‘I pledge not to take any contributions from the oil, gas, and coal industry, and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy. I will not take any contributions over $200. I’m crossing out the $200. I’m not going to take any corporate donations at all.

(Cheering and Applause)

UNKNOWN: “It’s for individuals as well as corporations.”


HICKENLOOPER: “How can I take — I don’t know the people who write the checks. You can’t do that. I have no idea who writes me checks. We get a thousand checks a day. People write them all the time.”

UNKNOWN: “So not knowingly. So are you still signing this then?”

HICKENLOOPER: “No, I’ll cross that out. How can I sign this? You’ve made an impossible thing to sign if someone is going to run a race.”

UNKNOWN: “Okay. I’m really disappointed to hear that.”
