Bernie Sanders meets California fire victims, lays out Green New DealWASHINGTON/SACRAMENTO (Reuters) – Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Thursday unveiled a $ 16.3 trillion climate change strategy on a tour of northern California that included meeting families displaced by deadly wildfires and a rally in the state capital Sacramento. The plan would “launch a decade of the Green New Deal”, a 10-year federal “mobilization” that would factor climate change into every policy action from immigration to foreign policy while promising to create 20 million jobs in the process. The U.S. would generate 100% of its electricity from renewable energy by 2030 and achieve “full decarbonization” by 2050, according to the plan.
