Buttigieg in South Carolina
“We must rally our nation together to meet the climate crisis with the urgency it demands. This impacts not only our coasts, but also farmers, small businesses and homes across South Carolina. My administration will work toward a net-zero emissions society by 2050.
We will enact a price on carbon and use the revenue to send rebates directly to Americans. We will modernize transit through the expansion of accessible rural public transportation. My administration would ban future offshore drilling and develop an emergency response system that prioritizes minority communities when major climate events come on shore.”
