Elizabeth Warren ended her presidential campaign on March 5, 2020.

In her own words: “When it comes to climate change, our very existence is at stake. I have an 8-year-old grandson, and I think about what the world is going to be like when he’s 38. Will it be a place where our cities are underwater part of the time? Will it be a place where the Midwest has burned up? Where we’ve lost some of our great forests? Will it be a place where large parts of the oceans are dead? Will it be a place where people around the world are just fighting for clean water? We’re running out of time to make change, and right now, Washington refuses to lift a finger without permission from the fossil fuel companies. That’s dangerous and wrong. We are the wealthiest nation in the history of the world – of course we can afford to make real investments in renewable energy, green infrastructure, and a Green New Deal. We must meet the urgency of the moment, and I’m in this fight all the way.”

Dignity for Farmworkers and Food Chain Workers

[Inlcuded in plan:] And as climate change continues to lead to more extreme weather – like hotter summers and drier winters – the danger of wildfires and heat stroke will only become worse.

Stop Wall Street From Financing the Climate Crisis

We will not defeat the climate crisis if we have to wait for the financial industry to self-regulate or come forward with piecemeal voluntary commitments. Winning a Green New Deal and achieving 100% clean energy for our global economy — or enacting any of my 13 plans to defeat the climate crisis — will be … Continue reading "https://medium.com/@teamwarren/stop-wall-street-from-financing-the-climate-crisis-db267e3145c1"


Elizabeth Warren Targets Wall Street in New Climate Change Plan

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren targeted Wall Street in her latest plan to combat climate change, saying she would ensure that banks, asset managers and insurers “pay the true cost of climate change.” According to Warren, this would require making big changes to how Wall Street currently does business.


Where do the 2020 Democratic candidates stand on the climate crisis?

All the candidates have pledged to end new fossil fuel operations on federal lands, after the Trump administration approved new leases for oil drilling on federal land in California in December. But how else do their plans compare on climate and California?
