Everything we do from this point forward must be seen through the lens of the climate crisis. We must act immediately to transition away from fossil fuels. We should utilize advances in nuclear energy to provide a bridge to a completely renewable energy infrastructure. We should tax carbon so that the market will be on our side in this fight. But we can't stop there.
We should create a Climate Corps within the Department of Defense to mobilize an entire generation in the fight. This will provide good paying jobs and valuable training while citizens plant 1 billion trees, repair levees and dams, build green infrastructure, and upgrade our transportation network.
