🌎 GreenPeace: Where's your 2020 Candidate on Climate? #1 Bernie Sanders

HOW THEY SCORED

Sen. Sanders released a bold plan to invest $16 trillion in a Green New Deal to usher in 100% renewable energy in a decade, end giveaways to the fossil fuel industry and hold big polluters accountable, and prioritize workers, communities of color, and Indigenous communities in a just and inclusive transformation of the economy. He committed to immediately end federal subsidies and leases for fossil fuel production, halt new oil, gas, and coal projects, and ban harmful fracking and mountain-top removal practices. He pledged to hold fossil fuel companies accountable and make them pay for their contributions to the climate crisis. Sen. Sanders championed climate action for years in Congress, including co-sponsoring the “100 by ‘50 Act” and “Keep It In the Ground Act” to cut off federal support for coal, oil, and gas while ushering in 100% clean energy by 2050. Keep it up, Sen. Sanders!

1. Cynics Give Bernie A Low Score Focusing On The Political "Feasibility" Of His Plan

while environmental groups continue to heap praise on the Green New Deal as containing all the necessary steps to save humanity from cooking itself to death.

I've had it with faux experts trying to protect fossilized industries while millions of people die and millions more species of flora and fauna go extinct!

Election Day 2020 is the beginning of the end of the climate crisis!
