Democratic presidential candidate sen. Kirsten Gillibrand promises that, if elected to the White house, you will spend $10 trillion in the next 10 years, both tax money and private funds to tackle climate change, and the implementation of the objectives of the ” Green New Deal.’

“We have seen damage to catastrophic flooding in the Midwest, forest fires in California, and hurricanes devastate communities in the South and Puerto Rico. Many people have lost their homes and not love, because we are already acting on climate change,” the senator from New York, said in a media post Thursday morning.


“My plan provides for the immediate and energetic measures to protect, save our communities and our planet,” Gillibrand touted. “Not only I would adopt, to protect the Green New Deal and to, clean air and clean water, but I’m going to invest in the communities most affected by climate change and hold polluters the responsibility for the damage that you’ve caused the American people.”

“The revenue from this carbon tax, estimated to be more than $200 billion annually, is then directly back in our country, the transition to renewable energies,” she explained.
