Joe Biden unveiled plans Tuesday to spend $2 trillion creating a clean energy economy, with ambitions to spur millions of union jobs building the wind turbines, sustainable homes and electric vehicles needed to rapidly throttle U.S. greenhouse gas emissions driving climate change.
“These investments are a win, win, win for our country -- creating jobs, cutting energy costs, protecting our climate,” the Democratic presidential nominee said as he outlined a blueprint to spur economic growth through investments in clean energy and infrastructure, building on proposals he released earlier in his campaign.
