Climate Change: Green New Deal is about green jobs.
“The Massachusetts Democrat was one of a few lawmakers who signed on as a co-sponsor of the Green New Deal in February. Since then he has said the ambitious climate and energy bill should be retooled as a jobs package that also fights climate change. In an op-ed last month in the Des Moines Register, Moulton proposed specific programs that could come out of a broader Green New Deal bill, including a Federal Green Corps that would allow Americans to spend two years retrofitting buildings to make them more energy efficient. In 2016 he backed a resolution calling on the U.S. to get at least 50 percent of its electricity from clean energy by 2030.”
