Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton says the United States can be the world's "clean energy superpower." Her plan, spelled out in detail online, would create millions of jobs and spur billions of dollars in public and private investment, while making infrastructure more resilient and lowering emissions.
Republican candidate Donald Trump says he's a "great believer in all forms of energy" but that the country's energy policies are a "disaster." In a 2015 interview with CNN, Trump said policies to support clean energy and reduce carbon emissions would "imperil jobs" and "the middle class and lower classes."
