Tom's priorities to address the climate crisis



https://www.tomsteyer.com/climate-justice/?utm_campaign=debate&utm_source=tw&utm_medium=social&utm_term=20190730_climate&fbclid=IwAR2qua41OyB8dQldwADMX_LwILhRsi751yUaUmndH-9RRov0RjRPxxpyey4

We are in a global climate crisis, and we need solutions that reflect the scale of the problem.

Justice-Based Pollution Reduction Targets and Actions
Asthma-inducing air pollution is a pervasive problem that affects low-income, indigenous, and communities of color first and worst. Tomís plan to neutralize global warming pollution by 2045 starts by prioritizing the creation of good jobs while ensuring every American can breathe clean air by 2030. We will establish climate-smart transportation, and construct and retrofit buildings to be cleaner and safer.

Community-Led Civilian Climate Corps
The people closest to the problems understand the solutions that will work best in their communities. Tomís plan will lift up local voices and build a Civilian Climate Corps ó a combined service, training, and job creation effort ó to implement tailored solutions specific to the needs of individual communities.

A Regenerative Economy
Our government should hold our public lands, waters, and skies in trust for the American people ó not as a stockpile of future profits for big polluters. Tomís plan honors people in legacy energy industries who have devoted their lives to keeping our lights on and our vehicles moving by offering a $50 billion investment program to build up local economies and protect workerís wage benefits. This plan will invest in local economies, end government giveaways to big polluters, and restore and expand public nature areas, working lands, and parks.

Climate-Smart Infrastructure
Our use of taxpayer dollars must align with our climate targets, protect workers, and help Americans build inclusive and prosperous communities. Thatís why we will shift the way we invest in our infrastructure to be smarter about climate change, prioritize clean manufacturing, and require companies to disclose and internalize the costs of their risky fossil fuel holdings.
