Buttigieg in Iowa
Buttigieg’s climate change plan includes enacting a price on carbon and using the profits to fund climate projects or rebating the difference back to Americans. In his first week in office, he said he would enter the United States back into the Paris Climate Agreement Trump exited in 2017
“With more resources, we can do more,” he said. “If this president can find billions of dollars just to take the edge off the trade war for farmers, we ought to decide if this is a real priority. Part of it is on the research side.”
Buttigieg estimates 3 million new jobs will be created if the proper steps are taken to address climate change.
