Sanders on climate change


“Bernie’s Green New Deal will invest $16.3 trillion over 10 years to meet the targets the scientists tell us are necessary to avert climate disaster. He’ll ensure justice for frontline communities — especially under-resourced rural and coastal communities, communities of color, Native Americans, people with disabilities, children, and seniors — to recover from and prepare for climate impacts, including creating a $40 billion Climate Justice Resiliency Fund. We’ll provide targeted regional economic development to communities especially in need of assistance during our transition to a clean energy economy, including $130 billion for counties disproportionately impacted by climate change.”
