Hillary has come out with an energy and climate plan every bit as good as Obama’s plan (and indeed quite similar to it). The detailed 16-page plan is titled, “Powering America’s Future: Hillary Clinton’s Plan to Address the Energy and Climate Crisis.”
Centered on a cap and trade system for carbon emissions, stronger energy and auto efficiency standards and a significant increase in green research funding…. the plan would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent from 1990 levels by 2050 to avoid the worst effects of global warming, and cut foreign oil imports by two-thirds from 2030 projected levels, more than 10 million barrels per day….
Hillary would increase fuel efficiency standards to 55 miles per gallon by 2030, but would help automakers retool their production facilities through $20 billion in “Green Vehicle Bonds.”
