Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley called global warming an excellent business opportunity and doubled down on creating a “100 percent clean electric grid by 2050” at Sunday night’s Democratic debate.
The presidential hopeful wrote an editorial in June saying if he becomes president in 2016, he will use his executive power to transition the country to renewable energy.
“I believe, within 35 years, our country can, and should, be 100% powered by clean energy, supported by millions of new jobs. To reach this goal we must accelerate that transition starting now,” O’Malley wrote.
