Greenpeace: Elizabeth Warren's $2 Trillion Plan to Kickstart the Clean Energy Economy is a "Win-Win"

WASHINGTON - Today, Elizabeth Warren released a comprehensive plan for investment in the clean energy economy. The proposal calls for $2 trillion in total investments over the next decade, including funding for a National Institute of Clean Energy, using the purchasing power of the federal government to mainstream emissions-free technologies, and a $100 billion “Green Marshall Plan” to help other countries purchase US-made green technologies and commit to reducing their carbon emissions.

In response, Greenpeace USA Senior Climate Campaigner Jack Shapiro said:

“With this plan, Elizabeth Warren is seizing the enormous opportunity that transitioning to 100 percent clean energy represents for people across the country. The renewable energy economy is a win-win for our climate and communities, and should be at the core of any plan to create jobs and spur innovation.

“But we know that investing in renewables alone will not be enough to stave off the climate crisis — our next president has to confront the fossil fuel industry, as well. To truly take the lead on climate, Warren needs to lay the groundwork for a world without fossil fuels by issuing a detailed plan to responsibly phase out all oil, gas, and coal production.”
