Elizabeth Warren On Climate Plan: ‘No Coal Lobbyists For Head Of EPA’
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) promised to make the Green New Deal the centerpiece of her administration’s climate policy if she’s elected president.
But that’d be a crowning legislative achievement. On her first day in the White House, Warren said, she’d halt mining and drilling leases on federal lands and set up a program at the Interior Department to create 10,000 jobs repairing infrastructure in national parks.
Yet the biggest change might be who she would nominate to lead the agency President Donald Trump has zealously put in the hands of the industries it regulates.
