Elizabeth Warren Proposes 'Climate Change' Jobs Plan, Costs $2M Per Job
2020 hopeful mirrors Green New Deal with new global warming plan
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has laid out her ambitious plan to create jobs while fighting 'climate change,' but the catch is the plan costs $2 trillion.
Warren's plan, which is eerily similar to the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal, proposes three major policy programs to spend $2 trillion over ten years to create 1 million jobs.
“The climate crisis demands immediate and bold action,” Warren wrote in a Medium post.
“Like we have before, we should bank on American ingenuity and American workers to lead the global effort to face down this threat — and create more than a million good jobs here at home.”
“This is a challenge — but like the challenges America has faced before, it is also an opportunity,” Warren wrote, as she outlined her plan to dominate the green market.
Warren wishes to implement her version of the Green New Deal, which has become a template for Democrats attempting to grab support from environmental activists.
“The United States is currently projected to spend roughly $1.5 trillion in the next ten years on defense procurement — a bloated number that’s far beyond what we need to keep ourselves safe.” Warren wrote.
“We should spend at least that much on purchasing American-made clean energy technology to address the climate crisis that threatens us all,” Warren added.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff praised Warren's climate change plan but said it needed even more government spending.
Last month, presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke also unveiled his $5 trillion "Climate Change" plan.
“The greatest threat we face — which will test our country, our democracy, every single one of us — is climate change," the former congressman warned.
"We have one last chance to unleash the ingenuity and political will of hundreds of millions of Americans to meet this moment before it's too late.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden also revealed his climate change agenda with a proposed $6.7 trillion to fight global warming.
Warrens plan includes banning new oil and natural gas drilling leases from public lands.
“The federal government’s World War II-era commitment to purchasing military items led to an enormous surge in American manufacturing capacity and set the stage for decades of sustained economic growth,” Warren wrote.
Warren said requiring “all new federal government contracts for manufactured goods to have received relevant energy-efficiency, environmental-preference, and/or safety designations.”
“And we should require new grants issued by the Department of Transportation and other agencies for infrastructure to include sustainability requirements both for finished goods and for construction materials ,” Warren wrote.
