Energy, Climate Policy Chasm Divides Trump And Biden

These differences can be seen most clearly in each candidate's approach to U.S. electricity and transportation sectors, the two largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Ms. Viola commented that even where the candidates may find common ground, such as a commitment to investing in infrastructure, their approaches still contrast.
