2020 candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren released her "Green Manufacturing Plan" Tuesday, a $2 trillion proposal to develop the technology needed to power the Green New Deal over the next decade.

Why it matters: Warren is seeking to strike a progressive tone that focuses less on regulations and explicit goals and more on manufacturing and jobs than some other Democratic candidates as divisions emerge between the party and labor unions over the Green New Deal.

Details: The three elements of Warren's plan include...

  • Green Apollo Program: Focused on clean energy manufacturing, the program would invest $400 billion in funding toward "clean energy research and development."
  • Green Industrial Mobilization: A $1.5 trillion investment to purchase "American-made clean, renewable, and emission-free energy products for federal, state, and local use, and for export."
  • Green Marshall Plan: A new federal office focused on selling green, American-made products abroad that calls for $100 billion in investment towards "assisting countries to purchase and deploy this technology."

Between the lines: Warren avoids an explicit goal for reducing emissions, instead opting to say more generally that her plan will help achieve "the ambitious goals" of the Green New Deal, which calls for net-zero U.S. carbon emissions by as soon as 2030.

The GOP's monstrous math problem

Republicans, win or lose next week, face a big — and growing — math problem.

The state of play: They're relying almost exclusively on a shrinking demographic (white men), living in shrinking areas (small, rural towns), creating a reliance on people with shrinking incomes (white workers without college degrees) to survive.

Right-wing misinformation machine could gain steam post-election

With less than a week until the 2020 election, researchers have expressed concern that the information ecosystem today is ripe for an unprecedented level of exploitation by bad actors, particularly hyper-partisan media and personalities on the right.

Why it matters: The misinformation-powered right-wing media machine that fueled Donald Trump's 2016 victory grew stronger after that win, and it's set to increase its reach as a result of the upcoming election, whether Trump wins or loses.
