Delaney in New Hampshire
What do you think about the Green New Deal as a vehicle for Democrats to present climate change as a problem?
I think it’s created a lot of excitement around doing something big on climate. I think my plan is a much better plan for addressing climate. My plan has three components to it. First, a carbon tax: I introduced the only bipartisan carbon tax bill in the Congress. I believe, in my first year as president, I can get it passed with all the Democrats and Republicans who live in coastal states. We put a price on carbon. All the money that gets collected we give back to the American people in a dividend. It’s been modeled to cut carbon emissions by 90%.
