Klobuchar in Washington

Klobuchar promised to move quickly on climate change, praising Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, whose scrapped presidential campaign made the issue preeminent. In her first week as president, she said, she would re-enter the U.S. in the Paris Climate Agreement, re-implement Obama regulations on gas mileage and clean power generation and introduce sweeping legislation to put … Continue reading "https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/politics/presidential-hopeful-amy-klobuchar-blasts-trump-pitches-her-electability-in-seattle-campaign-stop/"

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 … Continue reading "https://www.sentinelsource.com/news/local/klobuchar-dives-into-rural-policies-at-stonewall-farm/article_7f6f6a07-b1fd-54a0-80e0-c14488b3946c.html"

Delaney, Ryan in New Hampshire

Ryan and Delaney talked about plans to incentivize businesses to reach zero net emissions by 2050, the year that the United Nations agrees is a tipping point for being able to combat climate change because the atmosphere will warm by 1.5 degrees Celsius. Ryan focused on bringing farmers into the climate change conversation through education … Continue reading "https://www.eagletribune.com/news/democratic-candidates-claim-climate-change-is-key-issue/article_7a01c883-ae8f-5cbc-b248-b94959054a59.html"

Buttigieg in Nevada

We definitely should rejoin (the Paris Agreement). We need a carbon fee and dividend model, and I think we can rebate the full value of that out to the American people on a progressive basis so that most Americans are made better off than before. Even that’s not going to be enough. We need to … Continue reading "https://lasvegassun.com/news/2019/aug/09/buttigieg-a-millennial-and-midwesterner-says-hes-p/"

Buttigieg in Florida

Buttigieg says responding to the threat of climate change could be the way the United States gets back in the “game of leading the world.” He says that would first require the United States to re-enter the Paris Climate Accord and support a carbon emissions tax. But then he says the academic and public and … Continue reading "https://www.wmfe.org/mayor-pete-buttigieg-visits-orlando-says-climate-change-is-security-threat-along-with-gun-violence/131563"

Sorting through the 2020 candidates on climate

Voters of all stripes, except those with their heads firmly stuck in the sand, should be pressing the candidates regularly for their bold ideas on how to deal with this increasingly obvious climate crisis. On this issue, there’s little time to waste.

Boston Globe

Delaney on climate change

“My proposal is to create a carbon fee and dividend, which is modeled after the legislation that I introduced in Congress. It was the only bipartisan bill on climate change in Congress, by the way. This puts a fee on carbon, which makes fossil fuels more expensive and less attractive, and it takes all the … Continue reading "https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/17/democratic-candidate-john-delaney-wants-to-pay-you-a-carbon-dividend.html"

In a follow-up interview, Gillibrand told The Sentinel her plan does not include a cap on total carbon emissions, but that the … Continue reading "https://www.sentinelsource.com/news/local/gillibrand-touts-plans-her-effectiveness-in-walpole-stop/article_f3e5a2f7-94d1-5d0c-8310-cc81914c9615.html"

Gillibrand in New Hampshire

Gillibrand pledged as president to pass a “green New Deal,” and she said she also supports a carbon tax. She said she wants to start a ‘green energy race with China,” like former President John Kennedy had started the space race with Russia in the 1960s. Putting a price on carbon, she said, would make … Continue reading "https://www.reformer.com/stories/gillibrand-seeks-support-in-walpole,578745"

Delaney in New Hampshire

On climate change, he said he would pursue a tax on carbon. In an effort to avoid overburdening many Americans with the increased expenses, Delaney added that people would get a dividend greater than what they would be paying in heightened costs for gas and electricity. The main target of that tax revenue, Delaney said, … Continue reading "https://www.sentinelsource.com/news/local/delaney-presidential-campaign-theme-fix-what-s-broken-keep-what/article_c27533e8-d6a5-5951-b239-16421cee8b66.html"
