    Bernie Sanders ˜Green New Deal": A $16 Trillion Climate Plan

    Bernie Sanders’ ‘Green New Deal’: A $16 Trillion Climate Plan - The New York Times

    Senator Bernie Sanders on Thursday released a $16.3 trillion blueprint to fight climate change, the latest and most expensive proposal from the field of Democratic presidential candidates aimed at reining in planet-warming greenhouse gases.Mr. Sanders unveiled his proposal one day after Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington, who made climate change the central focus of his campaign, announced he was dropping out of the 2020 race. Mr. Inslee’s absence could create an opening for another presidential aspirant to seize the mantle of “climate candidate.”
    Mr. Sanders was an early supporter of the Green New Deal, an ambitious but nonbinding congressional plan for tackling global warming and economic inequality. He is bestowing that same name upon his new plan, which calls for the United States to eliminate fossil fuel use by 2050.
    It declares climate change a national emergency; envisions building new solar, wind and geothermal power sources across the country; and commits $200 billion to help poor nations cope with climate change.
    Even though I dislike Trump, massive tax and spending **** like this is the reason why I dont want a Democrat as POTUS. They have gone far past the deep end.

    Are you suggesting that Sanders speaks for every Democrat?

    JC, I could only get through about half of that pdf before I came to the conclusion that Sanders should probably be committed.

    Are you afraid he does?

    The cost of inaction is even higher.

    Instead you'd rather pay long term, higher amounts? Curious. You must not like your grandchildren.
