Senator Cory Booker has announced his intention to spend $3 trillion fighting climate change if he is elected president.

Vowing to "end the real and growing threat of climate change and to create a more just country for everyone," Booker proposed a wide variety of policy measures, including "requiring all new passenger vehicles to have zero emissions by 2030" as well as "a ban on all new fossil fuel leases," Fox News reports.

The politician also called on Congress to "create a United States Environmental Justice Fund, which would commit $50 billion a year ‘to advance environmental justice and invest in communities long left behind.'"
