Sanders' climate change plan
See this article. He's going to institute a carbon tax on oil companies to pay for reducing carbon emission 40% by 2030 and 80% by 2050. He's also going to repeal oil company subsidies and create 10 million clean energy jobs. He'll provide retraining to oil workers for these new jobs. He will also "outright ban offshore drilling, ban Arctic drilling, block natural gas exports, stop attempts to lift a decades-old ban on crude oil exports, support states trying to ban natural gas fracking, and ban mountaintop removal coal mining." See the article for more.
