Julián Castro unveils climate plan centered on Green New Deal principles

Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro on Tuesday began rolling out his campaign’s $10 trillion plan to address climate change, an initiative that aims to have all electricity in the U.S. be clean and renewable by 2035.

In a statement, the former mayor of San Antonio said his proposal centers on principles of the Green New Deal, an ambitious and controversial plan spearheaded by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York. Over the course of the next decade, Castro is calling for “immediate and significant” reduction in greenhouse gas emissions until the country achieves net-zero emissions by 2045 at the latest.

“Right now, the climate crisis is already devastating our communities, our homes, and our families,” Castro said in a statement. “Severe storms, deadly hurricanes, massive floods, extreme droughts, and wildfires are now a normal occurrence, destroying homes and businesses, and shrinking our economy.”

If elected, he said his first executive action will be to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement that President Donald Trump withdrew the country from in 2017. Over the next decade, Castro is calling for significantly reducing carbon emissions by transitioning off of fossil fuels to clean energy.

So, not much different than all the other Democrat contenders traveling all over the nation in fossil fueled vehicles and on fossil fueled airplanes.

During his first 100 days in office, Castro said he would propose legislation to address and dismantle structures of environmental racism, a type of discrimination where communities of color and low-income communities are forced to live in close proximity to environmentally hazardous or degraded environments, such as hazardous waste sites or pollution. To that end, Castro said he’d propose new civil rights bills like requiring all federal actions be reviewed for environmental and health impacts on low-income and marginalized communities.

So, it’s really more about the SJW stuff. Surprise!

But his plan carries a significant price tag, directing $10 trillion over the next decade to “create ten million good paying jobs, transition away from fossil fuels, build a 100% clean-energy economy and establish a National Climate Council.” Castro said the money would come from federal, state, local and private investments.

Like all the rest, how much of this is just patronizing the unhinged climate cultist base?

    “all electricity in the U.S. be clean and renewable”

    Impossible. There is no such thing with current and foreseeable technology.

    “Severe storms, deadly hurricanes, massive floods, extreme droughts, and wildfires are now a normal occurrence, destroying homes and businesses, and shrinking our economy.”

    They have ALWAYS been a ‘normal occurrence’ and, in fact, now all of these things are becoming less normal and less damaging.

    “Castro said the money would come from federal, state, local and private investments.”

    Almost all from taxpayers meaning higher taxes, bigger government and more government control.

    Once again very little of this plan is about the AGW movement. I wonder if people like Elwood and John get the fact that their darlings on the left want to regulate society as opposed to actually fixing what they say is wrong with the climate, weather and the end of humanity via AGW.

    None of these plans give more than token lip service to the dreaded were all gonna die in 10-12 years mantra but instead begin a new policy of dictating to us how we will live and WHERE.

    The left pretends to care about the poor in run-down destroyed cities but in reality, they have done NOTHING for 40-50 years other than to keep shoveling them deeper into the rabbit hole and then professing all their problems are due to republicans.

    Once again for moderate voters. For Moderate Democrats, this is a turnoff. They scream were going to die! then their solution is Medicare for all, buying back guns and opening borders so they can pour in millions of new voters to make sure AMERICA WILL DIE.

    The Democratic party has turned into one giant lie but at least one thing about it….they believe in transparency now….now more kidding around. We are commies and we are coming for YOU!!!

    Why does he have to wait for his first 100 days in office? If this is such a great idea, he could propose it to one of his friends in congress today. I suspect it is because, like most Democratic issues, he doesn’t really have a plan, just a talking point. And no one from his own party thinks of him as their leader in anything.
