Senator Elizabeth Warren unveiled her new “plan” to fight climate change Thursday; asserting she can simply “make 1.2 million jobs” to push back against global warming and reduce America’s carbon emissions.
The 2020 hopeful was speaking at an MSNBC Town Hall event when she was asked to expand on her latest proposal to protect the environment.

“The thing is, you can’t just wave your arms. You’ve got to have a plan, and I do have a plan on this. Here’s how it starts: I’m going to make 1.2 million new jobs, new jobs that are good jobs, that are jobs in manufacturing, good union jobs,” said Warren.
“Here’s the idea behind it. Right now, we have a climate crisis, it threatens us all… That needs a lot of research, lot of innovation, and a lot manufacturing to push back against that,” she added.
Warren was caught off guard earlier this week when she was grilled over Native American ancestry claims during a radio interview with hip-hop morning show ‘The Breakfast Club.’

“I grew up in Oklahoma. I learned about my family the same way that most people learned about their families; from mothers and fathers and aunts and uncles. But I’m not a Person of Color. I’m not a citizen of a tribe. I shouldn’t have done it,” said Warren.
“How long did you hold on to that. There are some reports that said you were a Native American on your Texas Bar license, that you were Native American on your documents when you were a professor at Harvard. Why’d you do that?” asked Charlamagne.
“It’s what I believed. It’s what I learned from my family,” deflected Warren.
“You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal,” he fired-back, referring to the Caucasian woman who self-identified as an African American.
ANOTHER NEW DEAL? Warren Proposes Using US MILITARY to Combat Climate Change
Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren unveiled her latest proposal to combat climate change Monday; suggesting the use of the US military to confront global warming.
“In short, climate change is real, it is worsening by the day, and it is undermining our military readiness. And instead of meeting this threat head-on, Washington is ignoring it — and making it worse,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.
“We have the most capable military in the world. It’s also the single largest government consumer of energy, and it’s dependent on fossil fuels. The Pentagon spends about $4 billion a year to power its bases at fixed locations and consumes tens of billions of barrels of fuel per year,” she adds.
“Nibbling around the edges of the problem is no longer enough — the urgency of the moment demands more. That’s why today I am introducing my Defense Climate Resiliency and Readiness Act to harden the U.S. military against the threat posed by climate change, and to leverage its huge energy footprint as part of our climate solution,” concludes Warren.
Together, we can work with our military to fight climate change. https://t.co/fYixnw11bz

The far-left Senator’s comments come weeks after she unveiled a series of new government programs that economists say will cost US taxpayers trillions per year.
“If we put a 2% tax on the wealthiest families in the country, we can provide universal Pre-K, universal free college, knock back student loan debt for 95% of Americans—and still have a trillion dollars leftover,” claimed Warren on social media.

According to leading economists, the Senator’s proposal to forgive student loan debt and introduce tuition-free public colleges would cost over $1.25 trillion over the next decade.
Sen. Warren Unveils ‘Universal Child Care’ Plan, Will Cost $70 BILLION PER YEAR
2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren pulled-back the curtains on her long-promised “Universal Child Care” proposal Tuesday; with analysts confirming the plan would likely cost $70 billion per year.
“Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren proposed a universal child care plan that would limit American families’ expenses to 7 percent of income regardless of how many children they have in care — paid for by a tax on the ultra-wealthy,” writes Bloomberg.
