Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) on Wednesday released a plan to prepare the military for climate change, including a requiring the Pentagon to achieve net-zero carbon emissions on noncombat bases by 2030.

“In short, climate change is real, it is worsening by the day, and it is undermining our military readiness. And instead of meeting this threat head-on, Washington is ignoring it —  and making it worse,” Warren wrote in a post on Medium.

“Nibbling around the edges of the problem is no longer enough  —  the urgency of the moment demands more,” she added.

Warren, who unveiled the plan in both the blog post shared by her campaign press office and a bill to be introduced in the Senate this week, has been working to stand out from the 20-plus other Democrats running for president by releasing detailed policy proposals on a number of issues.

2. Smart. By tying it to the damage it's done to the military bases so far it makes it hard for

 

the politicians to ignore it.

3. Good to see her proposing actual legislation on climate change.

 

Maybe BS and OAC could learn something from her example. Slogans and half truths are no substitute for passing meaningful legislation.
