In the opening moments of the presidential debate, some of the first flashpoints came over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton s push for clean energy and clean technology in her economic development plan.
While both presidential challengers, Secretary Clinton and Donald Trump, support infrastructure spending, Clinton came out during the debates with a full-throated support for renewable energy.
It s important we grip this and deal with it, Clinton said of the threat climate change poses to the nation.
Her solution, as part of a push for economic prosperity, is to deploy a half a billion solar panels and build a modern electric grid.
That s a lot of new jobs.
That s a lot of economic activity, Clinton said.
