Biden Continues to Listen to Climate Activists, Unveils $2 Trillion Clean Energy Plan

Washington, DC  -- Today, former Vice President and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden unveiled his $2 trillion plan to continue the transition to an equitable clean energy economy. The plan, which calls for 100% carbon-pollution free electricity by 2035 while centering equity and strong labor standards, stands in stark contrast to the actions by Donald Trump, who has repeatedly denigrated the clean energy industry, which had employed 3.4 million people before the pandemic.

In response, Sierra Club Political Director Ariel Hayes released the following statement:

“While Donald Trump spreads lies about windmills, tries to block legislative efforts to advance electric vehicles, and ignores the millions of Americans working in clean energy, Joe Biden is presenting a vision to invest in and grow an equitable clean energy economy. 

“The Sierra Club is encouraged by Biden’s proposal, which shows he is listening to the continued calls from activists and organizations across the country demanding a bold and ambitious plan that meets the size and scale of the crisis and completes the transition to a clean energy economy.”
