In her speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, Hillary Clinton made a lot of promises about her probable presidential administration. One stood out to us here at Gizmodo.

ā€œI believe in science,ā€ she said. The crowd erupted in applause. And then, Clinton giggled. She fucking giggled.

Thereā€™s a lot to critique about either political party, but this is clearly a slight towards the people who believe climate change isnā€™t real and who believe in biblical ideas of how the world was formed.

Clinton remained vague on the rest of her science and technology policies in her speech (although sheā€™s spoken about her views elsewhere), but she expanded a bit on how her administration could deal with changes in our climate.

I believe climate change is real, and that we can save our planet while creating millions of well paying clean energy jobs.

Look, weā€™re not highlighting this because it was a standout moment in a speech full of quotes. Itā€™s just amazing that in this, the year 2016, a presidential candidate has to explicitly say that they believe in science.

What a world.
