    Default Inslee plan: 8 million new jobs, $9 trillion in spending over 10 years

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...te-change-plan

    Jay Inslee, the governor of Washington state, is introducing a second portion of his climate change plan as most Democratic contenders for president have yet to officially roll out their own big-picture proposals.

    Inslee’s 38-page document is focused on creating jobs. It outlines a $9tn investment over 10 years and seeks to create 8m jobs aimed at decarbonizing the economy. In an earlier plan, he vowed to make the US carbon neutral by 2045.

    What tangible impact will this have on climate change?

    I'd like to know exactly how our 9 trillion will impact climate change? Seems like the obvious question, no?

    That's what I thought. You jumped on board without any critical thinking.

    I didn't jump anything. I merely reported in the OP.

    Can I jump over you and run circles around you? Sure

    I'm not saying I support this plan, just posting the link from the article that answers your question. I guess you were too lazy to get through the first 50 or so words of the link to find the answer yourself...

    Maybe this should go in the Iran thread, but given that the US is already acting on carbon, while China and India are not, what lengths are we willing to go to save the planet?
    Given the world will end in 12 years, are we willing to drop nukes on China and India unless they adopt the Inslee model?

    Something like this, kickstarting a green industrial revolution, seems like a great start to me!

    Pollution from China and India actually helps the environment. It's our fault.

    No where in the plan does it answer the question. The answer is we don’t know. I think if the people who are pushing these ideas would just admit to that, it would be easier to get behind.
