Elizabeth Warren releases climate plan with goal of creating 10.6 million jobs

By Christina Prignano


Senator Elizabeth Warren on Friday released a climate change plan that aims to create 10.6 million new jobs through nearly $11 trillion in public and private spending, calling the need to transition the United States to a green economy a top priority if she is elected president .

Citing a recent study that shows there’s just over a decade left to avoid irreversible damage to the planet, Warren wrote in her latest campaign proposal that major action is needed to reduce global emissions. The Cambridge Democrat framed the threat as an opportunity, pointing to American successes in World War II and the space race, and arguing for investment in green policies that would spur private sector investment and create jobs.

“America has a long and proud history of rising to the challenges that have faced this country — and defeating the cliamte crisis is no exception,” Warren wrote in a Medium post Friday, the morning after the latest Democratic presidential debate.

As the early state contests rapidly approach, Warren is continuing to aggressively roll out detailed policy plans as she looks to regain some lost ground in the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire. Since the beginning of December, she’s released plans to strengthen work protections for part time employees, combat warming oceans, and crack down on financial corruption.

1. Thank You Liz Warren.

 

It requires courage to step forward with a firm beginning climate proposal in this primary environment which seems content on ignoring our looming climate catastrophe, poverty, and climate injustice.

Great critique of the debate on Yesterday’s show @democracynow! Amy Goodman is still the hardest working journalist in America.

3. I don't believe that many of our candidates ignored the issue of climate change.

 

Inslee, O'Rourke, and many others stepped up to the plate on the issue.

2. How many

 

Multi-trillion dollar plans does she have? Which ones will she actually do and which will she table? She can't possibly pay for them all, so which promises does she plan to break?

4. Last week when she scolded Rehema Ellis at the Education forum...

 

She assured Ms. Ellis, that 2 cents tax on billionaires will pay for every one of her plans.

5. What is Warren's back up plan in case this one isn't adopted world wide?

The US alone won't be able to reduce emissions enough to stave off climatic disaster. Given that there is only ten years left and recent history shows that nations haven't been able to make changes, failure is highly likely. Shouldn't our government also be working to adapt to the coming changes? Such as move populations away from predicted flood areas and such.
