Elizabeth Warren unveils a $1 trillion environmental justice plan for low-income communities
Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., introduced on Wednesday an environmental justice plan to defend low-income and minority communities against pollution, contamination and extreme weather events that are exacerbated by climate change. "Our crisis of environmental injustice is the result of decades of discrimination and environmental racism compounding in communities that have been overlooked for too long," Warren wrote in her plan. The senator's plan calls for improving equity mapping of marginalized communities to better identify climate risk damage from increasingly intense storms, droughts and wildfires. The plan also instructs the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Justice to enhance enforcement against industrial polluters. Environmental justice is defined by the EPA as the fair treatment of all people and communities with respect to protection from environmental and health hazards.cnbc.com
