John Delaney: 70% of US would support this climate plan


Former Congressman John Delaney (D-MD) didn’t talk much in the first Democratic debate — but during his 6.6 minutes of speaking time, he pushed for a carbon tax as a way to fight climate change.

Delaney wants to put a fee on carbon emissions and increase that fee every year. The idea is to encourage investment in renewable, clean energies while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
