Today, the Sanders campaign asked where our climate plan was. I guess they didn’t look too hard.

Here are some links that might be helpful.

Hillary Clinton pledged in her launch speech to make America the clean energy superpower of the 21st century.

Hillary also released two bold goals to make America a clean energy superpower, as part of a comprehensive energy and climate agenda:

First, to have more than half a billion solar panels installed across the country by the end of her first term.

And second, to generate enough clean renewable energy to power every home in America within 10 years of taking office.

She promised to build on the progress made by President Obama by defending and fully implementing the Clean Power Plan.

And she announced plans for a Clean Energy Challenge to help cities, states, and rural communities go even further:

When Pope Francis came to visit the United States, Hillary said:

Hillary came out against drilling in the Arctic:

And she said drilling in the Atlantic would mean “so little to gain and so much to lose”:

She said the Keystone XL pipeline was the wrong choice for America:

And released a comprehensive plan to modernize our entire energy infrastructure by making existing energy infrastructure safer and cleaner and unlocking new investment resources.

Hillary spoke out against coal companies who tried to shirk health and pension obligations:

And released a $30 billion plan to ensure that coal miners and their families get the benefits they’ve earned and respect they deserve, to invest in economic diversification and job creation, and to make coal communities an engine of U.S. economic growth in the 21st century as they have been for generations.

Hillary explained why the Paris COP 21 climate agreement is critical:

And applauded President Obama for getting it done:

And she’s nowhere near done yet.

While the Sanders campaign pores over those, I suggest that they explain how they plan to back out of the international climate deal that President Obama reached with the rest of the world in Paris. After all, Senator Sanders did come out against it.
