It is no surprise that Americans are already feeling the impact of climate change, but those who are in vulnerable communities are experiencing it at an even higher level. Julián Castro has released a new plan that focuses on environmental justice and finding ways to enhance our climate’s resilience. He plans to do this by directing $10 trillion federal and state funds towards creating ten-million new jobs while staying away from fossil fuels and constructing an economy with clean-energy.
- This new plan will entail $10 trillion to be dedicated towards creating over ten-million new career opportunities.
- People nationwide are experiencing the effects of climate change, but those who reside in vulnerable communities have shown to feel the impact more heavily.
- When climate change causes a natural disaster, families end up losing their entire sense of financial stability through repairs and loss of assets.
“The plan, which represents the first and second installments of his five-point platform on climate, addresses environmental justice and climate resilience, with an emphasis on supporting people who are at the forefront of combating climate change and families who have borne the unequal burden of toxic pollution.”
