The good and bad of Joe Biden’s $2 trillion climate change plan

2020-10-13

Promising to spend $2 trillion on climate over the next four years, U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden is taking a path similar to that of politicians from many other rich countries, vowing costly policies to help address global warming.

Along with his fellow Democrats, he pledges to end fossil fuels in the power sector by 2035 and cut net U.S. emissions to zero by 2050.

Global warming is a real problem we need to tackle smartly. President Donald Trump has incorrectly suggested that climate change is a hoax and has offered almost no effective climate policy. Better approaches are definitely needed.
