Presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand today rolled out what she is calling a “climate change moonshot” to “save our planet.”
The Democratic senator from New York said in a blog post that “climate change is the most serious threat to humanity today, and we need immediate and bold action to address it before it’s too late.”
She said she would enact the Green New Deal and mobilize $10 trillion in public and private funding to neutralize America’s share of the pollution heating the planet by 2050. The deadline aligns with other Democrats running for president, and the spending tops what most have proposed.
Gillibrand wants to tax fossil fuel production to generate $100 billion annually for climate mitigation projects. She would put a price on carbon, requiring emitters to pay $52 per metric ton. The senator would also halt new fossil fuel leases on public lands and the outer continental shelf and invest $100 billion in preparing rural communities for the climate crisis.
Her plan would require support from Congress.
