Buttigieg on climate change


Buttigieg says the Green New Deal is the right framework to think about tackling climate change. “The way it’s been laid out now is more a set of goals than a full-blown plan. But I do think that candidates ought to be specific about the steps we’ll take, including being honest about the fact that we need a carbon fee or carbon tax and dividend system, so that the true price of carbon pollution is actually reflected in the marketplace.”

He also wants America to recommit to the Paris climate agreement, and include rural America in being part of the solution, and quadrupling federal research and development in renewables and carbon storage.
