A radical plan that could unite the world in fighting climate change

US Democratic candidate Joe Biden has adopted what some consider to be the most ambitious climate change action plan ever put forward by a major party of a major nation.

At the heart of Biden’s climate change package is a determination to decarbonise the nation’s electricity system by 2035 before reaching net-zero carbon emissions for the entire economy by 2050.

Biden would direct all government procurement towards green technology, including electronic vehicles, and fund a Civilian Climate Corp similar to the Works Progress Administration established as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "New Deal", established to help the nation lift itself out of the Great Depression.
