Klobuchar in New Hampshire


Beyond rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, Klobuchar has proposed a price on carbon that she says would direct revenue toward renewable energy and give cash back to Americans in the form of a dividend to help offset the short-term increase in fuel.

The key to mitigating the effects of climate change, she said, is keeping Americans invested in the lifestyle changes by ensuring economic benefits are always in tow.

“I think we’ve learned from all of the efforts [to combat climate change] going on around the world, and one thing we know is that we’re going to have to invest in communities where they’re going to see transitions,” Klobuchar said. “It’s not just going to be green energy you invest in there. It’s also manufacturing and other kinds of jobs, so you make sure that you are making sure that people are continuing to support their families and other things.”
