Our democratic hopeful, Hillary Clinton has taken the much needed step to address her stance on Climate Change. I am re-posting what has been reported by Trip Gabriel and Coral Davenport at The New York Times, yesterday:
“Setting ambitious goals for producing energy from the sun, wind and other renewable sources, Hillary Rodham Clinton seized on an issue Monday that increasingly resonates with Democratic voters and sets up a stark contrast with the Republican presidential field.”
“She set a goal to produce 33 percent of the nation’s electricity from renewable sources by 2027, up from 7 percent today — a higher goal than the 20 percent that President Obama has called for by 2030.”
“Mrs. Clinton called for installing a half-billion solar panels by 2020, a sevenfold increase from today, and to generate enough energy from carbon-free sources within 10 years of her inauguration to power every home in America.”
Wasn’t all that much of a “Plan” as political talk, but at least climate change is entering the discussion.
