Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday outlined his proposal to combat climate change and stimulate economic growth, saying during his 20-minute speech that the U.S. has just nine years to save Earth from climate change.

He also promised to deliver "net zero emissions no later than 2050."
